I first listened to rock jock Tom Clay on CKLW “The Big 8” as a young boy. That radio station transmitted out of Windsor, Ontario and when Earth’s ionosphere worked its magic after sundown, their 50,000 watt signal could be picked up by AM radios throughout much of eastern Canada and America.
Based solely on Clay’s on-air persona, one could’ve easily deemed him an honorable, admirable guy.
However, when it came down to how he conducted his off-the-air life… well…. let’s just say that when he was wrong he was stunningly wrong.
But when he did get everything right… well… our Vid of the Day is a testimonial to the good side of Clay’s character. Let’s eye / ear witness his film clip enhanced social commentary / musical mash-up of What the World Needs Now Is Love with Abraham, Martin and John.
