Wayne Bobalicious - host of The Drive
As a youngster, Wayne would wake up at an early morning hour on the weekends, and instead of turning on the television to watch cartoons he would put records on and jump up and down on the sofa in the living room, thus began his life long love of rock music.
In his early teen years he would record his own radio shows on cassette tapes and interview his friends. Inevitably drums and guitar would become the instruments to learn and his much admired rock heroes would be emulated.
Much later he attended the Columbia School of Broadcasting and Recording Arts in Vancouver where he met like minded individuals and formed bands. Eventually Wayne worked on cruise ships playing with orchestras and traveling the world where one day he did visit his sister in the Yukon while docked in Skagway, Alaska. After many years of roaming the globe, Whitehorse became home and CHON-FM became the beacon to broadcast the music he loves.
