Lawyer turned CBC mainstay presented case for humour


Millions of people had seen Muhammad Ali, many thousands had talked to him, but Jack Farr had them all beat. The longtime CBC radio host was among a small and prestigious group who had a poem written for them by the American boxing legend. Nicknamed “Captain,” Farr parlayed his regular radio appearances into his own gig as host of the Winnipeg-produced The Radio Show on Saturday afternoons on CBC from 1983 to 1992. He dashed back and forth between the TV room and the kitchen for the entire day and was happy as a kid in a toy store.”Farr met Bonnie at the CBC radio studios in Toronto. The words and humour just rolled out of him, much like his Radio Show items and interviews,” she says.
