Condolences to family and friends of former CJMS-A and CKVL-A/MONTREAL host LUCIEN (FRENCHIE) JARRAUD, who died FRIDAY in PARIS at 84.
The MONTREAL GAZETTE reports that JARRAUD was on vacation when he passed away; he had undergone surgery for respiratory problems. Credited with starting QUEBEC talk radio with a night show at CJMS in the 1950s, JARRAUD later was a leading morning host in MONTREAL in the 1960s and 1970s, exiting CKVL in 1985 and in recent years working at Country CJMS. He also ran for Parliament in 1974.
