A ‘Throwback Thursday’ Story From the Teen Years – RIP Troy Furlong

This is my ‘Throwback Thursday’ story for today. Back when we were in our late teens in the late 80s we used to hang out at a Wendy’s restaurant just a block from my house, in the same plaza as the IGA where I worked part time as a bag boy and pretty much next door to the high school.

‘Throwback Thursday’ Story – The Time I Got Robbed Back in 1991

It a “Throwback Thursday” as the Facebook and Twitter theme goes. In the spirit, here goes a story from years ago. Back in 1990 through 1991, when I was 18 and 19 I worked overnights at a Need’s Convenience which was and still is a franchised convenience store chain. For those who find this on-line through tags or a Google search, it was the one on Queen St. in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada.

Greg Michaels’ Crazy Adventure For A Job Interview

I’ll tell this story again because of the date. It’s also kind of an interesting story of determination. Back on this day, Jan. 29, in 1995 it was a) The Super Bowl and b) a young 22 year old on a bus in search of a dream. I was on my way to an interview the next day, Monday, with a now defunct pop radio station in Brewer.

What is “Home” – Where You Grew Up? Where You’ve Lived The Longest? Where Your Heart is?

This is one of those things that I think about from time to time, where is “home?” I wrestle with this because I’m often asked where I’m from. I usually say I was born outside Los Angeles, raised in Halifax, Canada and now live in Auburn, Maine.

Greg Michaels: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Edmundston, New Brunswick: A Nice Weekend Getaway

Our summer vacation this year is a trip to Halifax, where I was raised for a few days, then we’re off to Edmundston, New Brunswick. We’re bringing my mother in-law and she is a first timer to Halifax. We’ll probably check out Peggy’s Cove, the downtown waterfront and drive by all of the places that meant something to me. For example my old schools, my childhood home, maybe a few work places too.

Any Places You Loved From Your Youth Disappear?

As I get older more and more of my youth disappears either by a bulldozer, by failure over time or just due to a revamp. At any rate a place in Halifax we used go after the other bars closed has now closed for good. The Palace also known as 'The New Palace' has closed I guess because of changing times and demographics. It was such an institution in Halifax The Barenaked Ladies referenced the bar in a song, 'Hello City.' Anyway the point of this story is not so much to reminisce about an old bar as it is to think back at our young days or in this case wasted youth.

Greg Michaels’ Job Interview Trek 18 Years Ago This Week

What is the furthest or craziest thing you’ve done to get a job? For this story we have to go back to the summer of 1994 when I was 22 years old. In June of 1994 I was hired as a part time DJ at a station in Yarmouth, NS. I wasn’t there very long but long enough to hear the stations in Maine over The Bay of Fundy.
