MIKE DUNPHY and the Multicultural Unit
For the past 10 years or so, Mike Dunphy has patiently assisted the Multicultural Unit in completing and lodging all material associated with obtaining funding for MCU programs and the station. It has been Mike’s diligent approach, gentle nudging and oversight that has seen nearly $200,000 come the way of City Park Radio.
It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, often with a degree of frustration with constant marshalling and phoning individual presenters who wanted funding, to get them to complete forms and maintain the terms of their agreements.
Mike has now decided he will retire from this aspect of CPR operations -and on behalf of all members, the station says a huge thanks to Mike for all that he has done so well in this area for City Park Radio. Even when he had holidays coming up, it was prepared and presented early.
Mike has done a sterling job for the station and his shoes will be hard to fill (he’s still wearing them) . All jokes aside, it is extremely pleasing to honour someone who has gone the extra yards for the station over many years. That’s real dedication to CPR. Thank you, Mike Dunphy.
“Luigi, Yesterday I was amazed and delighted to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to my home. The card indicated that it was a gift from City Park Radio. As I am not sure who to thank, I thought I would message you. I just want to say how delighted I was to read the card. It is very uplifting to know that the friends at CPR care. Thank you to all concerned Best wishes Edward (Broomhall)”
CPR has also received thanks for flowers sent & cards received to Dave Mohr (recent bereavement) & Linda Callister (short hospital stay)

REELIN’ in the YEARS – Classic Album
The Hermit of Mink Hollow – Todd Rundgren (1978)
Ever since his first album “Something/Anything” was released in 1972, Todd Rundgren’s music has been unpredictable and diverse, but interesting and well produced. He is the complete package – a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer.
In the 1970s when he wasn’t producing albums for other people, he was making solo albums like “The Hermit of Mink Hollow”.
Released 35 years ago, this album was a solo project in every respect. It features no other musicians, with Rundgren playing all the instruments. The album title alludes to his self-imposed isolation to write and record the album while living in a house on Mink Hollow Road in upstate New York.
The album’s song list is best known for the single “Can We Still Be Friends” with its cascading voices sung in beautiful harmony. It also contains astonishingly good songs like “Determination”, the whimsical and very clever “Onomatopoeia”, and the beautiful melodies of “Lucky Guy” and “Hurting For You”.
There’s some balance in the hard rocking “Out of Control”. The songs shine with joyous energy like a perfect day, the sun rises with “All the Children Sing” and sets with “Fade Away”. Perfect choices to bookend a classic album.
