About the Author

Unless your mom hid your transistor radio in 1973 and still hasn't given it back, chances are you know who Jim Hurcomb is. From 1973 to 1980 Jim was one of the most popular voices on CKCU-FM, Radio Carleton, Ottawa's first cool FM station. From 1980 - 2000 he hosted a number of programs on CHEZ-106, including the afternoon variety show In The city, the very loud Power Chords and the flagship Morning Show, first as half of Geoff (Winter) and Jim, and later Jim and J.R. (John Rogers). Then it was 8 years at CFRA co-hosting Middle-Aged, Bald Guys with Al Fleming. These days, some 47 years after pushing that first button, Hurcomb is still behind the microphone, hosting and producing The Sound of the Underground on LIVE88.5, heard Sunday nights at 9. Away from radio, Jim is deeply involved in other aspects of music, as a musician, teacher, music trivia host and writer. Rockin' on the Rideau is his first book. If you like this one, there may be a Rockin' On The Rideau: The 70's late in 2021....
