The voice of a city died today.

Toronto's Citytv news anchor and station announcer Mark Dailey dead of cancer at 57.

I went to a street festival once at Yonge and Eglinton, and Dailey was emceeing something or other, and once finished with business he wound up by intoning 'This is Citytv...' and we all -- all several thousand of us -- screamed back "EVERYWHERE!!"


A voice so authoritative that it still makes Corey Haim sound cool...



...so snarky it anticipates the Internet by a decade...



...and so awesome it could do promos for 'Your Federation Station' and dare you to laugh.



Ave atque vale, Mark.

Shoebox
The sun is cold
And the misty hills bespeak me Of long-ago dreams;
Not lost, only waiting
Kept alive by those who might listen – And watch –
Over the hills to the sea.


This is the story of those dreams...with all-too-frequent detours into reality.
