Back when radio jobs were plentiful, Wes Atkinson did plenty of radio.

Atkinson was on the air on stations all over the Golden Horseshoe section of Ontario, including FM 108 (CING-FM) in Burlington, CHIC Brampton, CHRE St. Catharines, CKOX Woodstock, CIDC-FM Orangeville, CFGM Richmond Hill, CKLH and CKOC Hamilton and CKYC Toronto. He also was an operator at CHUM-AM in the 1960s.

Personally, we remember Atkinson from the late '80s, when his morning show would follow our all-night "Gold Mine" show on FM 108. He was one of radio's all-time "good guys", always friendly, helpful and positive.

Wes died March 2, 2008 in Hamilton. He was 59.
