Kenny "Special K" Wells really was special.

One of the "hippest" sounding jocks to hit the CKFH airwaves, Wells got his start at One Grenville with a show called "Spotlight on Youth", produced by Barry Nesbitt. He later got his own 'FH music show in late nights and Saturday afternoons. Wells was heard in some 14 markets over his long career, including Peterborough (twice), North Bay, New York State, Boston, Niagara Falls, Huntsville, Richmond Hill, Barrie, two stations in Hawaii and San Francisco. He was also active in copy writing, promotion, programming, and music direction.

Wells died in a boating accident in Honey Harbour, Ontario in 2003.
