Bonino Bonino Bonino!

Video clips of the Hockey Night in Punjabi broadcast of Nick Bonino’s goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins immediately went viral, amplifying the profile of Harnarayan Singh, the voice behind the call.

In this conversation with Harnarayan we talk about his love of hockey and Canada while also challenging both to be better. We talked about his relationship with Ron MacLean and his sister Gurdeep. Of course we talked about his journey from calling games with a toy microphone as a kid to calling Hockey Night in Canada games across the country and everything in between.

We also discover the one thing most people don’t know about Harnarayan Singh. You will be surprised!

Tom Wilson

When my next guest walked on stage the crowd at The Great Hall in Toronto popped. A giant of a man with long, dark, wavy hair and wearing a dark, long coat came on stage and read from his book. This was March 29, 2018.

I had no clue who this person was. Why did he read from a book?

My next guest was raised in Hamilton, ON. He is an award-winning musician, singer, songwriter, an author, painter and visual artist.

The liner notes in his book, “Beautiful Scars”, reads, “Along the way he became a father and a grandfather, battled demons and addiction, and he waited, hoping for the truth to emerge. and when it did, it would sweep across the St. Lawrence River to the Mohawk reserve of Kahnawake in Quebec , on to the heights of the Manhattan skyline.” I now understood why he read from his book.

Please Welcome to the show, Tom Wilson.
