Canada is his home. No, really. The entire country. You see, Paul was an Air Force brat, so he literally spent time in various cities right across the country. It was a musical clan. Paul actually played in his father's Big Band at the age of six.
His love of broadcasting took some time to materialize. Paul spent time at a number of jobs over the years. Driving cab. Driving truck. He was even a licensed mechanic!
It was after meeting Joey Gregorash that Paul started working with people in the music industry, and he's developed many connections, and friendships, over the years.
The radio career started in Winnipeg at CFRW in 1976. A stint at CKRC followed that, before he finally landed a gig at Winnipeg's news and talk powerhouse CJOB in 1991. In the summer of 2007 he made the decision to join the family at NL Broadcasting.
Paul and his wife Jayne make their home in Westwold (yep - quite the commute every day!). Quincy (all 70 pounds of him), Spencer (all 8 pounds of him), Fraser (all 5 pounds) and two cats make up the Graham clan. Oh, did we mention all those chickens?
THINGS YOU WON'T HEAR ON THE NEWS Wednesday March 4/15
POT IN DC
Pot is still legal in the nation's capital -- but not in private clubs. The Washington D.C. Council has passed emergency legislation to ban weed in clubs. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the council agreed that the bill was needed to clarify the new legalization law. Pot became legal in Washington last week, following a voter-passed initiative in November. But pot use is only legal for adults in their homes. Public use and selling marijuana are still legal no-no's. The council action adds private clubs to the list of locations where it remains illegal to fire up a joint.
A tea party-backed Texas lawmaker wants to make pot legal in the Lone Star State. Republican state Representative David Simpson says it's time to ``reframe'' the marijuana discussion. Simpson says his devout Christian beliefs are behind his call for legal pot. Simpson says -- quote -- ``God did not make a mistake when he made marijuana that the government needs to fix.''
PET WALKER-MISSING DOG
It's a sweet reward for the return of Sugar. A New York dog owner is offering ten-grand for Sugar, his 63-pound pit bull mix. Morgan Bogle was away on business February 23, when a neighbour called to say the dog walker was acting strangely and Sugar was nowhere in sight. Now, there's a ``find Sugar'' movement on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites. Supporters have plastered posters around Bogle's East Village neighbourhood and beyond. A friend of the owner says the missing Sugar is sweet, loving and cuddly.
BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST REFUND
It's a restaurant breakfast for seven cents. But Joseph Nelson didn't have to pay, he got seven cents from the Belmont Hall and Restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire. The eatery has a policy of giving birthday discounts, a percentage taken off the bill based on age. Nelson celebrated his 101st birthday there Monday. At that age, the restaurant owed him money. Nelson had scrambled eggs and ham, topped off with a piece of chocolate cake. He tells WMUR-TV he never thought he'd live this long.
Selfies, yes. Selfie sticks, no. The Smithsonian museums are banning selfie sticks. Smithsonian officials say it's to protect visitors and museum objects _ especially when they're crowded with thousands of visitors. The ban applies to some of the most popular tourists spots in Washington, including the National Air and Space Museum.
FIRE AT FIRE STATION
Some Salt Lake City firefighters didn't have far to go. Their own fire station was on fire. Nine firefighters evacuated the building, then quickly returned with a truck to fight the blaze. Two dozen additional firefighters soon joined them. When the fire station fire was put out, the original nine were taken to a hospital to be checked out for smoke inhalation. A fire department spokesman says the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
