PETER KUFLUK (AKA PETER KEIGH) WAS A TORONTO BROADCASTER AND A COLLEGE FRIEND OF MINE

You sense the clock is ticking when university friends begin dying.  Peter and I were together for three years in Radio/Television/Journalism Arts at what was then the Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now Ryerson University).  Following graduation, I went into television and Peter into radio.

PETER KEIGH began his broadcasting career at CHUM-FM before he’d left Ryerson. From there he moved to CJRT91.1 to host ‘Morningmusik’ – a classical music program designed to calm the jangled nerves of TORONTO commuters. He was always proud of his 29 years there, in Canada’s most competitive radio market.

From PETER’s Obituary – “He was proud to be among the first in Toronto to use CDs on the air. But what he was most proud of was us, his son Michael and his daughter Rebecca. He will be greatly missed by our mom Marion, his wife and friend of over 40 years. A collector to the end, dad found joy in his library of DVDs, array of tools and assortment of clocks. Dad loved to talk about the weather, the birds on Sturgeon Lake where he lived and the bang-up job he did re-roofing his house last year. Because our dad never had the chance to say goodbye to his many loyal listeners, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and goodbye on his behalf. If you have a favourite charity, please donate in honour of Peter.”
