McKentythumbNeil McKenty liked to argue just for the hell of it. During the 1970’s and 80s he was one of Montreal’s highest rated radio talk show hosts. At the peak of his career more than 75,000 people tuned into CJAD to hear his show, Exchange. “The basic exchange on Exchange, is not between the listeners. If the host sets up the chemistry, the show goes on its own momentum, and I am almost on the sidelines. On the other hand, I am in the entertainment business. If I bore my listeners, I’m dead.”

McKenty, a former Jesuit priest, was also a newspaper columnist and author of several award winning books including The Inside Story, The Journey of John Main, Mitch Hepburn and with his wife, Catherine, wrote Skiing Legends and the Laurentian Lodge Club.

He was 84 when he died in 2012. The material collected in this book focuses on the years he moderated, infuriated, provoked and entertained his listeners.
