WARREN, Earl 2002 -- Died This Day
Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page S9
Broadcaster born in Regina on October 10, 1933.
After starting out in radio in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, he landed a job at CFRB in Toronto where he was best known for hosting the highly rated House of Warren. One of the station's most popular programs, it drew more than 116,000 listeners in the early 1980s almost three times the audience of its competition. The House of Warren was a mix of music and chat that spoke to a largely female audience. He had started at CFRB in 1961, a time when the station was thought of as the pinnacle of radio but, after 22 years, he learned in 1983 that he would be replaced and so moved to FM 108 in Burlington, Ontario He later joined CHWO in neighbouring Oakville as host of a popular Saturday show aimed at seniors. When the station switched frequencies to a.m. 740, Saturday Seniors became The Earl Warren Show and was broadcast on Sunday mornings. It bore all the hallmarks of his earlier shows.

LOVEGROVE, Tommy
(Singer, Entertainer)
Passed away peacefully on November 26, 2005 at age 83. Dearly missed by his loving wife of 60 years, Betty (née BARLOW,) loving son David LOVEGROVE and his wife Karyn and loving daughter Wendy Jane LOVEGROVE. Born in Wales, Tommy began to sing at the age of sixteen, winning talent competitions in England and Wales. He joined the Royal Air Force in World War 2 and, besides his job of keeping the 'Spitfires' flying, he sang with the Royal Air Force band in London along with a musician named Harry Lewis who later married Vera Lynn, 'Sweetheart of the Forces'. He formed his own band in London after the war. In 1956, Tommy, Betty and son David emigrated to Canada. His love for singing was always there. He entered a competition for 'Lipton Search for Talent' in 1956 (judged by Gordie Tapp) and won. His long-time musician friend from England, Jack Lane, formed his own band, 'The Jack Lane Seven' and Tommy sang with him for many years at the Royal Overseas Club in Toronto. They also did stints at 'The Old Mill' and many other venues around Toronto. As well, he enjoyed singing gospel music and did so at many church locations in the greater Greater Toronto Area. He performed on both television and radio many times. He sang Remembrance Day and gospel songs on the '100 Huntley Street' television program. He was interviewed on Radio CHWO (AM 740) by announcer Jim Paulson and the late June Sonin where he also sang 'When Joanna Loved Me', a favourite of his many fans. After being interviewed by the late Peter Gzowski on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio's 'Morningside', Peter himself remarked..."That Tommy Lovegrove... he's cool!" He performed for many years at the 'Seniors Jubilee' at Roy Thomson Hall and was very happy to receive their Award of Distinction for 1999 presented by the 'Forever Young' newspaper. On another note, a second child, Wendy Jane, came into Tommy and Betty's life in 1963. Tommy's 'other life' was in the business world. He was general manager of 'Ampak Plastic Company' and later in sales with the 'Wheaten Glass Company'. He was always also involved in other entrepreneurial sidelines. When he retired from the business world, he recorded several musical works with Friends and family. His last years were spent happily singing at many Seniors' residences accompanied by his friend of many years, Dave POLS. Dave was a great support to Tommy as he struggled with performing (due to the onset of Alzheimer's Disease) in the last few years. The family wishes to thank the staff and volunteers at the William Osler Health Centre and the 'Alzheimer Society's Day Programme' staff for their wonderful care. Thank you, too, to all of our dear Friends for their support. There will be a visitation/celebration of Tommy's life on Wednesday November 30, 2005 at the Scott Funeral Home, 289 Main Street North, Brampton (905-451-1100) between 1: 00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Tommy's memory to a charity of choice, or the Alzheimer Society of Canada or the Palliative Care Unit of the William Osler Health Centre (Brampton location.)
