The next time you hear an Elvis tune, or watch a baseball game, raise a glass to Doug Hobbs.
Hobbs, a long-time CKTB sports director and Saturday morning oldies show host at the St. Catharines, Ont.-station, died May 5 following a heart attack. He was 68. Hobbs was a big Elvis fan who once played every song The King recorded all in a row on his CKTB show. Hobbs also broadcast St. Catharines minor league baseball and for more than two decades was an official scorer for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Hear Doug Hobbs guesting with Burt Thombs on the Gold and Great Revival from December 17, 2003 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
