Hitline Countdown Radio

Welcome to Hitline Countown Radio on, where we offer up three songs that you won’t hear programmed on commercial radio any more, at least, not back-to-back-to-back!

No, we’re letting regular radio play all of the new music over and over and over and over and over and over again while we get a little bit creative with our playlist … the way radio used to be!

Firstly we roll out a popular song that enjoyed good chart action back in the day, followed up by something more mellow from our “Northern Light” collection and finishing with a song that has, for some reason, fallen through the cracks. A great tune but a song you just don’t hear on the radio any more. Some of the cuts from our Northern Light collection are custom recordings featuring local and regional talent!

Bob Durant

Broadcasting veteran Bob Durant has passed away

Bob Durant is best remembered locally as the host of the morning show on 560 CFOS in Owen Sound. He was well known for his outstanding work in broadcasting, with stops in Toronto at CFTR, CHFI, the FAN 590 and AM 740. He also worked at stations in Montreal and in his hometown of Ottawa.

He was friends with the late Ted Rogers from his days at CFTR and CHFI. Bob was an award winning journalist … so well respected as a newsman that he could pick up a phone and call just about anybody, at any time, and they would give him an interview. CFOS listeners enjoyed hearing Bob and his old friend Bill Watters share laughs and tell old stories on the morning show.

His popular daily commentary known as “Durant’s World” cut to the heart of the matter by offering timely, relevant, ear-catching opinions on a wide variety of topics. Bob Durant offered an honest opinion … sometimes humourous … sometimes controversial … and always entertaining.

Bob had the unique ability of being able to turn on a microphone and talk to a listener as if he or she was a life long friend.

Bob and his wife Kathryn moved to Collingwood on a full time basis in 2005. Together they raised two daughters and enjoyed time with their two granddaughters.

When not behind a microphone, Bob could often be found on an area golf course where he was known as “Fairway Bob.”

A service will be held next week at St. Mary’s Church in Collingwood to remember broadcaster, family man and friend to many, Bob Durant.

One of the good guys on the planet has moved on.
