Little-known fact: In the mid-1960s, after leaving the Prairies for a job at Toronto's CHUM, Slaight did a consulting stint for pirate radio ships off the coast of England. Set up in international waters, the pirate stations broadcast rock and pop music to millions of listeners who weren't getting what they wanted from legitimate radio ? the beginning of a movement that continues to this day.
