Steve Boyton


Afternoons 3pm-7pm





Prior to departing for Peterborough several years ago, Ottawa had been home base for me, spending many years on the air and behind the scenes at stations like CFGO, Q101, W1310, Y105, and Majic 100. I was part of the original line-up at The Jewel in 2006 and I’m thrilled to be back in the Capital, hosting the afternoon drive show from this little two story red-brick house on York Street! You can also hear me in The Lounge every Monday night, from 7-11 PM.

Favourite Food: Apart from being a wonderful soulmate, my partner Juanita is also a fantastic cook, so we eat in most of the time. When we do dine out, we try to stay in the neighbour and patronize the local offerings, which there are plenty of within a 5 minute walk.

Favourite Movie: Avatar, Life Of Pi, Amelie, Harry Potter, The Da Vinci Code, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Once, come to mind right away. I tend to enjoy imaginative movies that transport you to another place and time. Bio pics and ‘live’ concert footage too. And happy endings!

Favourite Activities: When I’m not behind the microphone, you’ll likely find me behind a digital camera, pursuing my other passion – photography. Feel free to visit my Flickr page: Pets too! Juanita and I share our home with two furry kids, Stella & Abri.

Favourite Artists: Where do I begin? Sade, Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, Jason Mraz, Don Henley, Jo Stafford, Matt Monro, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Bruno Mars, Gordon Lightfoot, Adele, Marc Jordan, Dean Martin, Jesse Cook, Diana Krall, Coldplay, James Taylor, Alison Krauss…
