New to the site?

For those of you perhaps visiting the site for the first time, a little background may be helpful.

The site focuses on my memories and experiences as a Toronto Maple Leaf fan dating back to the late ‘50s. It includes recollections and events up to and including my time as a young broadcaster in the late 1970s and early ‘80s.

While the focus is largely from the late ‘50s to the late ‘70s, this past week we posted stories on Leaf memories from the decade of the ‘80s. The site is certainly Leaf-oriented, but I will be talking all things hockey from the ‘good-old-days’. You don’t have to be a Leaf fan to enjoy the site. I’m sharing a wide range of hockey stories -such as the time I met Bobby Orr in his rookie season, in late 1966, under unusual circumstances.

In addition, we are not only offering readers some old audio interviews I did in the 1970s and early ‘80s, but some new interviews we have done just recently. Our “vintage” collection on the site already includes Rocket Richard, Tiger Williams and Wayne Gretzky. We will add more over time. Our new interview was with former Montreal and Toronto great Dickie Moore and we have more interviews with old-time Leafs already scheduled.

I’ve included stories on former Leafs such as Don Simmons and Eddie Chadwick, as well as Brian Spencer, Andy Bathgate, Marc Reaume, Lanny McDonald, Mike Walton and Jim Harrison. I’ve also written about new Leafs like Jonas Gustavsson and Phil Kessell. There is more to come.

We enjoy hearing from you with any comments and suggestions. Contact us at
