Outdoor Journal Radio – December 29 2018


Christmas 2018 is now in the books and it’s on to New Year’s Eve! This is the New Year’s broadcast.

Blue Fish Radio is a big hit, with over 100,000 listeners each week. Lawrence Gunther is the star of the program. Lawrence is remarkable; he progressively lost his vision starting when he was 8 years old. but that hasn’t been a deterrent to his tournament fishing, whitewater canoeing and skiing.

Cynthia Shipley from the Toronto Zoo joins Angelo. Who got the Pygmy Hippopotamus for a Christmas gift, and how do you wrap one of them? Cynthia will have the answer and the schedule of special holiday programs over the next week.

On the Go Fish in Ontario segment, we travel to Wakomata Shores Resort near The ssalon in the Algoma District. Roger Hawkins will join Angelo with an ice fishing and snowmobile trails report. Wakomata Shores Resort is a four season resort offering a variety of winter sports.

Mark Engstrom from the Royal Ontario Museum is batman. The bat cave exhibit at the ROM is a hit with the kids, and the new exhibit featuring Zuul the armored dinosaur has just opened. There’s a lot to see at the ROM over the holidays.

On behalf of all the folks at the Outdoor Journal Radio Show, Happy New Year’s and be safe during the holidays!
