Lake, George

George Lake hosted “Hawaiian Sunset” on CKUA 1949-52. During the early 50’s, the CBC Dominion Network and Australian Broadcasting Corporation ran his radio show as a summer replacement. He was also the steel guitarist on Harry Farmer’s “Melody Junction” CFRN-TV show. George and his Hawaiian group were selected as the opening act for the CKUA 80th birthday broadcast at the Myer Horowitz theatre, under the direction of Program Director Brian Dunsmore. He is still actively involved in the Edmonton music scene. George also founded the current prestigious 18 piece Trocadero Alumni Orchestra in 1991, which was featured on New Years Eve for a number of years, broadcasting live on CKUA with John Worthingham as emcee.
