This week in history: 40 years ago

FEBRUARY 7, 1979: Steve Blimkie of Chalk River may be tomorrow’s superstar. A recent graduate of Mackenzie High School, Blimkie enrolled last fall in a four-year course in broadcasting and recording music at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. He has recorded several songs already this year with a variety of producers. One song, “Anymore,” was included in a new wave program that was broadcast earlier this month on FM.
