Penticton's "Man of the year" from 2003 is settling into his 4th decade behind the microphone, Dennis Walker ventures onto the internet to talk to a loyal audience he has always called his country music family.
His personal family roots are from the heart of the Kootenay's in Creston, where his broadcasting career started when he was 14 calling KIJHL hockey games, and high school basketball for community TV. A full time radio gig started not long after high school graduation at the then privately owned CFCK radio, with stops along the way in Osoyoos, Kelowna, Vernon, and Penticton.
He's picked up the Mandolin in recent years, and can bang off a few Bluegrass and Celtic tunes. He's made appearances with the Kettle Valley Brakemen and Nikita Afonso. His Fastball pitching career is winding down with cycling now a hobby and big part of his South Okanagan lifestyle.
You'll see Dennis at many community events grabbing 'sound' and bringing it back to share the audio with you. Thank You for listening.
