Bob Laine is CHUM's best-remembered all-night man. But a few other folks, some well-known and some not-so well-known, also did the midnight-to-dawn shift over the years.
When CHUM debuted as a Top 40 station on May 27, 1957, the midnight-to-6 a.m. shift was held by Hank Noble, but not for long. About eight months later - in January of 1958 - Noble was replaced by Jay Jackson. Jackson didn't last much longer than Noble, leaving in mid-year to make way for Laine. Except for a departure of a few months in 1962 while he did mornings at CFGM, Laine owned the all-night slot for a decade. He finally moved to middays in August of 1968. Laine's replacement: "The Prez" Brian Skinner, who had been the station's zany evening personality from 1965 to 1968.
I don't know, the more I'm learning, the more I'm beginning to think these are 2 different Wms. Could this be why 2 different sets of parents? Mormons refer to their churches as stakes. Wm may have converted, but if he was a good Mormon, I can't imagine him doing what he did to your gma. I'm not finding individual stakes in phone book, so I suggest you call the Family History Ctr for further info.

You say Rita HEALY has a tree on genforum, but I'm still not finding it.Any way to contact her thru her posting? Wm B & Rita B are twins b 2-25-1962, but I don't know where. Many people use cell phones only nowadays, so no listings in phone book.
