Recalling those who contributed to Sault Ste. Marie broadcasting…

We remember one, we remember them all.

Issue # 94 June 20,2022; previous issue dated January 27, 2021

 

This edition of Sky Studio is dedicated to Judy McDougall

who joined former colleagues in Sky Studio, June 4, 2022

Many kind and generous words of praise have been offered about Judy McDougall as she joined colleagues in Sky Studio June 4, 2022.

 

Common themes from those who worked with Judy surround her welcoming, supportive nature and ability to do many functions at the radio station, always pitching in when needed.

 

Johannes (Hans) Geenen recalled, “So sad...I worked with Judy a number of years... just first class all the way...Terry McPhee and I were heavily involved with the Musical Comedy Guild while employed at CFYN..we needed a seamstress for one of the shows..Funny Girl..Judy said she would help out and ultimately took on the whole task with help..what a trooper...always willing to pitch in...she'll be missed. R.I.P. Jude....”

 

Mike Beckwith worked at CFYN/CHAS 1977-78 and says, “I was only 17 and she made me feel welcome, she handed out the cheques… she always was dressed nice and had a smile on! We had good talks and the Friday handing out of cheques blossomed into a half hour talk.......I will miss her.”

 

Scott Witty remembers her in the front office, “… always smiling and dressed to a tee. I believe her role was in traffic and in advertising. I was so young and working evening and weekends.“

 

Darryl Adams, still in broadcasting now in Cornwall, remembers Judy as fun to be around, “… seeing her bright smile when I walked up the stairs to the radio station on Queen Street. She was a gem and her memories of her kindness and laughter will remain in our hearts. Amazing lady. Rest In Peace Judy!”

 

John Chambers says, “So enjoyed working with Judy at CFYN, and all those wonderful summer bbq parties with the gang, out at the famous Goulais Bay camp, all those years ago! A true dyed in the wool, Orange and Blue Detroit Tiger's fan, Judy was a kind, funny and talented woman, who will be missed.”

 

“Tracey, your mom was great to work with,” says Liz (Baia) Boyle, adding: “Beautiful, strong, woman who was full of life.   Hard worker but always had a sense of humor. Loved hearing her banter with Dave Macdonald over his Cleveland Indians. Don't tick her off or she'd have a few choice words for you especially if you brought in a commercial order last minute...right George and John? Her favorite place to be was Goulais. Judy loved to be at camp on her days off. Work just happened to get in the way. We had the pleasure of spending a weekend at camp to relax and enjoy camaraderie while having a few bevy and playing horseshoes. Highlight was good ol' Bob Wood wearing his "Real Thing" pants. A lot of great people worked together during our Gilder days, and Judy always made it a fun place to work.”

Vancouver CTV weathercaster and host, Marke Driesschen recalls, “Not only was CFYN my first job in radio, it was my first venture out into the world on my own.  I'd left my home in suburban Toronto in the summer of 1979 to pursue my dream of working in radio.  Sure, I was excited but there were also times of doubt, stress and loneliness in adopting to a new life in e new place.  Judy was a warm, welcoming presence who helped you find your way around, make sure you did your paperwork so you could get you paycheck (which was pretty small, back then!) and keep you grounded and focused when you needed it.  She was the den mother to all of us wayward radio orphans trying to make sense of this strange business we chose.  Because of her kindness and caring, we all chose wisely.  She helped make my first year in the business one of the best.  Thank you, Judy.”

 

“Was saddened to learn of Judy's passing, says Dave Webb. “She was great to work with. My heartfelt condolences to the family.  Rest in peace Judy. ❤⚘
