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 Tuesday July 29/14
DROUGHT-GOLD RUSH EVENT
The rush is off -- because of a lack of water. The California drought is forcing officials to cancel Sacramento's annual Gold Rush Days. Organizers usually bring in nearly 200 tons of dirt. It's used to transform the Old Sacramento neighbourhood into a scene from the 1850s, including horses, wagons and street performances. But too much water would be needed to dampen the dirt and later clean it up. Steve Hammond, president of the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau, notes the dry conditions also help create a fire hazard. The Sacramento event is usually held during the Labor Day weekend.
90 AND SKYDIVING
Skydiving has always been a dream for Evelyn Stolz -- and she's finally done it age 90. The St. Louis woman hit the silk Sunday with her family watching. KSDK-TV reports Stolz served in the Navy during World War II and wanted to be a parachute rigger. But she didn't qualify because at 95 pounds she was considered too small.
You don't need more than one spouse to sleep at a former polygamist's compound. The complex in southern Utah is now called America's Most Wanted Suites and Bed and Breakfast. It was built for imprisoned polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, who was once on the FBI's most wanted list. Former Jeffs bodyguard Willie Jessop runs the b-and-b. He won ownership of the property in a successful lawsuit against Jeffs' church. While the compound was built for Jeffs he never lived there. Guests now pay from $85 to $200 a night.
A suspected shoplifter was pressing his luck. Police in Nassau County, New York, charge Andre Christmas stole $2,400 worth of stuff from a Long Island store. According to authorities, he returned the next day and tried swiping another grand worth of merchandise. He was busted Sunday. Police say Christmas is also a suspect in thefts at other Long Island stores earlier this month.
COMMUNITY SERVICE SCAM CHARGES
Maybe they were drinking a little too much coffee. Prosecutors charge a group supposedly dedicated to educating people about the effects of caffeine was selling another service. Authorities say the Caffeine Awareness Association was peddling letters falsely certifying that people did their court-ordered community service. The group and founder Marina Kushner have pleaded innocent to false filing and other charges. Defence lawyer Peter Schaffer says Kushner may explore the possibility of a plea deal.
