The above Actra Article just skims Fred's career. Here is a note from him with a chronological listing of his
working life in radio:
​​I began Sept 20 1960 at CJOY in Guelph.

​By the summer of 1961 I was CHML---(not CHMI)
After a brief three or four month stint at CHOW in Welland I went back CHML in Hamilton​.

In Dec 1963 I started at CKFM in the old Bloor Street studios where CFRB was also situated. 

Next, around 1965, I moved on to ​CHFI and then CKEY. Two years later I was
back to CKFM which by now waslocated at Yonge and St. Clair​. I quit several
times and finally left in 1976.

Joined the CBC as a contract news announcer replacing the highly regarded Earl Cameron
when he moved to TV. Substituted for Bruce Smith on the four to six show when he retired.
​Sheila Rogers eventually became the new host.

I have a vague recollection of doing an early evening program which eventually was taken
​over by Vicki Gabereau.

Back to CKFM in 1979-80. In1985 or 86,  Ralph Lucas hired me for weekend swing
and the Owls Nest and that lasted until September, 1993.

Overall my radio career spanned thirty three years.
