Bruce SMITH, Broadcaster (1919-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio pioneer who was heard on Toronto airwaves for more than 30 years made his mark in 1947 on the milestone morning show, Toast and Jamboree
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Bruce SMITH was a morning man who for many years was the autocratic ruler of his own radio program on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto. He chose his own music, and preferred popular tunes of the day rather than the marshal music favoured by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation brass at the time, and even banned certain advertisements, back in the days when Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio ran commercials.
"I ran it lock stock and barrel," Mr. SMITH boasted to Blake KIRBY of The Globe and Mail in 1971. "I selected all the music, wrote and read many of the commercials and allowed what sponsors I wanted, which didn't include beer and cigarettes. That was quite an authority. I just assumed it and nobody objected."
His freedom didn't last forever. Producers gradually wrested control from Mr. SMITH, though his strong personality and success in the ratings meant he had more power than most of them put together.
Mr. SMITH also had a kind of whimsy that is almost unheard of today, but was then common among such fellow broadcasters as Allan McFee and Max Ferguson. For good measure, Mr. SMITH invented a character called Brewster the Rooster, who was introduced to listeners by barnyard sound effects that were followed by a rant done in Brewster's special voice. "Brewster the Rooster was my alter ego," Mr. SMITH once told a reporter. "He became a character through which I could make socially valid points."
Brewster the Rooster proved to be popular with the audience. One day, they lost the tape of Brewster's trademark cock-a-doodle-do and Mr. SMITH reported Brewster had broken his leg skiing and was recuperating at Sunnybrook Hospital. The news of the fictional bird's accident attracted many phone calls and get well cards from listeners.
For many years, Mr. SMITH battled for ratings supremacy with Wally CROUTER of CFRB radio. At the time, the morning radio dial was crowded with the likes of Pierre BERTON, and Charles TEMPLETON on CKEY.
Bruce SMITH grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where his father was a foreman at the local steel plant. He was a brilliant student and served as president of the student council. When he was 15, he decided he would like to work at CJIC, the local radio station. It had just opened and he marched in and announced he was the man to read newscasts. They gave him a job doing it on weekends.
The following year, young Bruce graduated from high school, but for the time he remained stuck at home. His mother thought he was too young to go to university and made him take a second year of Grade 13. He wrote and passed exams in every subject offered, except Spanish.
While in high school, he was chosen as one of the Canadians to represent the country at the coronation of George VI in 1937. He travelled to London and attended the ceremony in Westminster Abbey.
Shortly after his return home, he was finally allowed to go to the University of Toronto. He graduated in law, which was an undergraduate degree at the time, and served as assistant sports editor of The Varsity, the school paper. During that time, he also wrote a column on college sports for The Globe and Mail. He was in the officer's training plan and joined the army in 1941. He trained in Canada with the signals corps, went to England and landed in France soon after D-Day.
His unit, the South Saskatchewan Regiment, fought in France, Holland and Germany. After the war, he stayed on as a broadcaster to work for the army's radio station and to transmit on British Broadcasting Corporation wavelengths. He didn't leave England until late 1946, long after most Canadians had gone home.
By then, most of his fellow law graduates were well along in their careers, so he decided to take a teacher's certificate. He taught for three months at Danforth Technical School in Toronto before taking his first permanent job in radio at CHUM. One of his fellow announcers was Monty Hall, who went on to be the host of the long-running U.S. television game show, Let's Make a Deal. Mr. SMITH worked at CHUM for a little more than a year before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. At first, he did mundane jobs, such as being the booth announcer, reading out such things as the call letters, station breaks and shorter newscasts.
He got a break when it turned out the morning man had trouble getting up on time. On July 19, 1948, Bruce SMITH became the new morning man and quickly made the program his own. "I even picked a Toronto hit parade to play every Friday. There was really no hit parade in 1950."
Bruce SMITH's morning show was known as Toast and Jamboree, and no other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio program in Toronto had more listeners. It even outperformed such U. S imports broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as Don McNeil's Breakfast Club, which ran at 9 a.m., and Ma Perkins, a popular daily soap opera.
Toast and Jamboree made him a household name in Southern Ontario. Despite that, he remained a modest man and was never a prima donna. People who worked with him recall him as being as friendly in person as he was on the air.
"I was a starry-eyed kid and didn't know what Bruce looked like, though I knew his voice," recalled traffic reporter, Jim CURRAN, of his first day at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. "When he said 'Welcome, Jim,' his voice had the same warmth as it did on the radio."
After 23 years doing the morning program, Bruce SMITH was edged out in favour of a younger man, Alex TREBEK, who went on to become the host of Jeopardy, another U.S. game show. In news reports at the time, Mr. SMITH put on a brave face and said how getting up that early wasn't natural, but his colleagues believe he would much rather have kept working the morning shift.
After that, he worked on an afternoon program called The Bruce Smith Show. One of his habits before going to work was to head down to the harbour and check out which ships were in. Later, he became president of the Toronto Marine Historical Society.
Mary McFAYDEN was a producer of his afternoon program for two years. She recalled that on September 2, 1977, they were broadcasting live from the Canadian National Exhibition when a plane practising for the air show suddenly crashed into Lake Ontario. It was a Second World War Fairey Firefly and the pilot was killed. Until that moment, the program offered interviews, live music and other light fare, and then the veteran Mr. SMITH swung into action.
"He showed all his skills as a broadcaster, switching from covering a fair to covering a plane crash. We didn't know much, but he was able to cover it and change the tone without missing a beat," recalled Ms. McFAYDEN.
In 1978, Mr. SMITH decided to retire before someone at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation decided he needed a push. "He didn't want someone coming and telling him it was time to go," said his son, Kim. "He left at the top."
Bruce SMITH was not yet 60 when he left broadcasting. He never went back to it -- even part-time. Instead, he developed a number of sidelines during 28 years of retirement. He became part owner of a curling club, which he ran as well as competing there, and followed his interest in shipping by taking trips as a passenger on lakers that plied the Great Lakes.
He and his wife, Beth, travelled frequently until she became ill. For 10 years, he devoted himself to taking care of her.
Bruce Arnold SMITH was born on August 22, 1919. He died on December 26, 2006, in Hamilton, Ontario He was 87. Mr. SMITH suffered from a rare type of blood cancer and had been ill for only a few weeks. He is survived by his four children, Kim, Cam, Kirk and Ann Elise. His wife, Beth, died in 1999.

Troubled relationship ends in tragedy
Domestic dispute on Christmas Day leaves two dead in Rexdale apartment
By Kenyon WALLACE and Dakshana BASCARAMURTY, Page A12
Iliada ZOIS dreamed of one day seeing her face on more than just the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's World magazine.
The 22-year-old Toronto resident, who imagined becoming an actor and model, instead spent her last few weeks working two full-time retail jobs and confiding in co-workers and Friends about a difficult five-year relationship with her boyfriend.
Ms. ZOIS and a 14-year-old boy were found dead in the woman's Rexdale high-rise apartment after a Christmas Day domestic dispute that turned violent, police said yesterday.
Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the Toronto police homicide squad said the bodies of the two victims weren't discovered until Wednesday night, when a 16-year-old man suffering from knife wounds walked into the 23 Division police station just a few blocks from the high-rise, and led officers to Apartment 217 at Beacon Hill Towers on 2737 Kipling Ave., just north of Finch Avenue West.
"This was a domestic situation that went really bad," Det. Sgt. GRINTON said. "It was one of the nastier ones I've seen… in the 30 years I've been on the job."
Yesterday, police arrested 27-year-old Nana YAW, whom they identified as Ms. ZOIS's common-law partner, and charged him with two counts of second-degree murder. He was also charged with one count each of attempted murder and forcible confinement.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW called police from a phone booth near Steeles and Kipling Avenues at about 6 a.m. yesterday and turned himself in. The man underwent surgery for non-life-threatening knife wounds at a Toronto hospital, but Det. Sgt. GRINTON would not say if they were related to the Christmas Day dispute. Police said the two teens were relatives of Ms. ZOIS.
It was no secret to Ms. ZOIS's Friends, co-workers and a neighbour that the woman was in a troubled relationship.
"I knew she was having problems with her boyfriend but I had no idea it was this bad," said a woman who worked with Ms. ZOIS at Fairview Mall's La Senza Girl, and asked that her name not be used.
Darren CEDAR, a man who claims to have had a 10-year online Friendship with Ms. ZOIS, said the woman told him she was scared of her boyfriend and had recently been looking to move out of their shared apartment.
Ingrid WILSON, whose apartment is on the same floor as Ms. ZOIS's, said she frequently encountered the couple in the hallway after they moved in more than a year ago.
"They seemed okay together," she said. "No jealousy."
But recently it seemed trouble was brewing between them, she said, adding that for two weeks she had heard yelling coming from the apartment late at night and early in the morning.
"On the weekends I usually heard lots of fighting on that side. Lots of noise - loud," Ms. WILSON said.
Shiva TAGHANI, who had worked with Ms. ZOIS at La Senza Girl for more than four years, said the woman was "a very hard worker" who spent 100 hours a week at two jobs. Ms. ZOIS also worked at a west-end Wal-Mart.
Ms. ZOIS's profile on the social-networking website Facebook proudly displays a scan of herself on the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's in-house magazine, as well as many self-taken glamour shots and an application where other users can rate her "hotness."
"She always wanted to do more with her life and always wanted to be famous," said Cheyenne KIRBY, who attended Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute with Ms. ZOIS. She said Ms. ZOIS, who had also studied child psychology at Centennial College, had dreamed of becoming a model or an actress.
Yesterday afternoon, Toronto police officers guarded Ms. ZOIS's apartment, which was still a crime scene. With a box of latex gloves and empty bags for evidence collection, they stationed themselves in front of the door, which was stripped of paint and had its peephole taped over.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW's forcible-confinement charge stems from the fact that the 16-year-old male who led police to the crime scene was confined in the apartment and at another undisclosed location. The man was treated for his wounds at a Toronto hospital yesterday and released.
Mr. YAW is expected to appear in court today.

Wiper-fluid punch suspected in death
By Kelly PEDRO and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Thurs., January 4, 2007
One person is dead and three are in hospital after drinking punch mixed in an windshield-washer fluid container at two holiday parties in Chatham-Kent.
The host of one of the parties, Rebecca DEMEURICHY, 25, died yesterday after drinking punch that police think was contaminated with windshield-wiper fluid, which contains methyl alcohol.
Her husband, Rob DEMEURICHY, is one of the three people being treated at a London hospital.
Police said they are still investigating whether the contamination was intentional.
One person was in critical and another in serious condition at London Health Sciences Centre after being flown by air ambulance from Erieau.
The parties took place in Erieau, Chatham Kent-Police said. The condition of the third person was not known.
Police are urging anyone who was at DEMEURICHY home at 857 Mariners Rd., or at the home of Mary Lou VIDLER and Hartley VIDLER at 1300 Vidler Ave. between December 23 and January 1, to go to the nearest emergency department immediately.
"The sooner you (go) to hospital after drinking something toxic, the better chance you have," said Doctor Margaret THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, medical director of the Ontario Regional Poison Information Centre.
The VIDLERs, in their 70s, and DEMEURICHYs, in their mid-20s, are related, said Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
Police received a call to 857 Mariners Rd. in Erieau yesterday morning.
When they arrived, they found one person dead. Another was taken by helicopter to a London hospital.
Later yesterday, one more person was flown to a London hospital and another person drove themselves, police said.
The death and illnesses are being linked to an alcoholic mixed punch served at the two addresses on December 23 and December 31, FLIKWEERT said.
The drink concoction was mixed in a container and may have had traces of windshield washer fluid.
An autopsy could begin as early as today to determine DEMEURICHY's cause of death.
The mixed drink was served at an open house party at the VIDLER residence on December 23 and again at a New Year's Eve party at the DEMEURICHY home.
Rebecca DEMEURICHY was ill Tuesday, two days after the second party, FLIKWEERT said.
Between 12 and 18 people who were at one or both of the residences have already been contacted and gone to hospital, FLIKWEERT said. He said anyone who was at either house for a drink may have been contaminated.
"People may be laying around thinking they have the flu and in fact it's a… poisoning that may cause serious bodily harm or death," he said.
The problem with drinking "other alcohols" such as those found in gasoline antifreeze and windshield-washer fluid is that the body doesn't metabolize them right away, THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
Someone who drank "bad alcohol" could just feel drunk, and then feel nothing at all.
"They're not toxic until they're broken down into their byproducts," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
If the "bad alcohol" was mixed with the usual stuff people drink at parties -- spirits, wine or beer -- then the symptoms would be delayed, she added, because kidneys first break down the non-toxic alcohol.
Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, shortness of breath or difficulty breath or vision changes, said Willi KIRENKO, a nurse practitioner.
She said only people who were at either address and drank an alcoholic beverage should be concerned.
People experiencing symptoms will have blood work taken and will know in about 30 minutes how serious their condition is, KIRENKO said
She urged people to take the warning seriously.
"The treatment for this… is time sensitive," she said.
Poison control has been helping direct the hospital with treatment.
Treatment includes dialysis -- one of the effects of drinking something such as windshield-washer fluid is kidney failure -- and intravenous fluids, THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
"It's very serious. We could save your life, but you could have permanent blindness… If all the byproducts haven't been made by the time you go to the hospital, we can delay the formation of the byproducts. (But) we can't reverse the problems," she said.
If You Where There
Police ask anyone who was at either address -- 1300 Vidler Ave. or 857 Mariners Rd., in Erieau -- during the holidays to contact Chatham-Kent police at 519-436-6616 and go to the nearest emergency department.

Curling icon mourned
By Don CROSBY, Thursday, September 06, 2007
Long-time curling journalist and promoter Doug Dean MAXWELL died of cancer at his Waterloo home Friday. He was 80.
MAXWELL was a curling journalist, broadcaster, event manager and promoter. He started his journalism career with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television and published his fourth curling book, "Tales of a Curling Hack", in 2006. He also owned and published The Curling News for 20 years and was until recently a Markdale resident.
"The World Curling Federation regrets the passing of a major contributor to global curling," federation president Les Harrison said in a statement Tuesday.
From 1968 to 1985, MAXWELL served as executive director of the Air Canada Silver Broom, the men's world curling championship.
"Doug's work with the Silver Broom took the world curling championship to a new level and had a large impact on the development of the sport of curling in new markets," said Harrison. Doug and his wife, Anne, moved to "Larchwood" - a farm in the Markdale area - in 1990, later moving to a house in town. They were involved with the Annesley United Church.
"He was a gentleman. Very committed to his family, to the church, the community and to the hospital fundraising project," said Dan Rose, who first met the couple at church.
"He had great communication skills and was always willing to help out when he could. It was an honour to know the man."
The former pastor of the church remembers MAXWELL's voice.
"He had one of those voices that you could listen to for a long time," said Don Pletsch. "He had great number of experiences&hellip he was great storyteller… and he liked to laugh."
In recent years, MAXWELL was heavily involved in the fundraising campaign for a new hospital in Markdale.
"He was so pleasant and so helpful," said Doctor Hamilton Hall.
Hall said MAXWELL brought his years of experience as a journalist to the preparation of some radio ads.
Doug MAXWELL threw his first curling stone in 1949, starting a lifelong association with the sport. He served 20 years as the director of the World Curling Championship and is credited with inventing curling's skins game. He wrote numerous books on the sport, including the bestseller "Canada Curls."
The MAXWELLs had recently moved to Waterloo.
He is survived by his wife Anne, his children Ward MAXWELL and wife Deborah KIRKEGAARD, Gord MAXWELL and wife Pat FENNESSY, Janet MAXWELL and her husband Gary WICKHAM, James MAXWELL and his wife Karen MAXWELL. He had eight grandchildren.
A memorial service will take place on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Annesley United Church in Markdale, followed by a reception.
