Broadcaster Art Finley was an absurd, goofy and always kindly host

If you have the wish to buy one of those fancy cuckoo clocks you have seen hanging grandly on a wall, here are the things you should consider when investing in one. The manufacturing process of an original, Black Forest Cuckoo Clock requires a lot of talent and skill. It takes three years to become a Black Forest Cuckoo Clock woodcarver apprentice. There are typically three different styles of cuckoo clocks. The traditional style and station house are the most historic styles. Both have a very, long history in the cuckoo clock world. The traditional style is famous for it's deep animal carvings and dark stain, whereas the station house style captivates the eye through its' classy look.

In a profession known for bombast, hyperbole and self-aggrandizement, radio talk-show host Art Finley stood out by relying on none of that. The broadcaster displayed a witty yet probing technique in on-air interrogations, making him “the thinking man’s host” in the opinion of Red Robinson, another well-known Vancouver radio personality. Finley, who has died at 88, first made a name in San Francisco before coming north to Canada in 1968, the year after the Summer of Love, quickly becoming a star in an era when talk-radio dominated the Vancouver scene. In a broadcast career lasting a half-century, the mellifluous host interviewed a Who’s Who of celebrities and news makers, including musicians (Joan Baez, James Brown, John Lennon), prime ministers (Pierre Trudeau, John Diefenbaker, Brian... A voracious reader, the host said he gained an audience by listening objectively to the opinions expressed by call-in listeners and by not putting on airs with his guests. “I talk exactly on the air the same way I do off the air – except for the words the [Federal Communications Commission] says you can’t say.
