As soon as he heard about Northumberland 89.7's "Be a DJ" promo, Dale Patterson knew he had to give it a go.
Patterson, curator of this web site, was one of six people to have the highest bid and get to do an hour live on the West Cobourg, Ontario, station. His show, Forgotten .45s, brought back many tunes that are rarely, if ever, played on oldies/classic hits radio today and gave Patterson a chance to go behind a live mic solo for the first time since 1994. "It was a great idea," Patterson said of the "Be a DJ" promotion. "I'd do it again in a second."
Patterson also took the opportunity to give away a copy of his book, "Close, But No Cigar: Runner-ups, Nearly-Weres and Also-Rans" from Red Deer Press. The book focuses on the second-place finishers in history and includes politics, science, entertainment, sports, space and much more.
