Down through history there have been many great lovers . But how many truly unselfish lovers of mankind can you name . Someone who’s really got a heart of gold . You know the kind of person legends are made of . Well this year , and just in time for Valentine’s day , we’d like to name the man or woman who truly exemplifies this spirit of love .
And the winner is none other than your friend and mine , the inimitable Glen Cochran . This jolly old soul is undoubtedly Canada’s greatest heartthrob . He not only makes the girls go googey-eyed , but also brings tears of joy to young and old across this great land of ours .
Just who is this man , and what is it you say , about his lifestyle , that keeps his creative juices flowing day after day , and sometimes even twice a day .
Well I bet you didn’t know that

2. Glen enjoys turning on the radio , opening the window , and playing the harmonica in his comfy chauffeured car . He finds the more he turns it up , the better he gets .
