Who is Jurgen Gothe ?

"Jurgen Gothe is one of Canada’s most widely heard and read media personalities, as well as one of the country’s foremost commentators on food and drink. He explores wine and spirits, food and restaurants, music and leisure in all major media, nationally and internationally.

He is best known to a vast number of Canadians (plus even more American listeners who tune in regularly, along the 49th Parallel) for his award-winning afternoon drive-home program, DiscDrive, now in its 19th consecutive year, on CBC Radio Two. DiscDrive is heard coast to coast every weekday, from 15:06 to 18:00 EST. He remains the Network’s only two-time gold medal winning host, with awards from the New York International Radio Festival.

He has spent three full seasons as co-host of Serdy Video’s national food and wine television show, Simply Wine & Cheese, becoming the food consultant and co-host for a new series, A Taste of Home, seen on CTV and Global TV in all major Canadian cities. His challenge was to create original recipes in each episode, based on regional cooking styles and ingredients.

He then wrote the first season of 13 episodes of the Alliance Atlantis/Food Network production, “New Classics with chef Rob Feenie” that aired to national acclaim.

Jurgen Gothe has been frequently featured in Western Living Magazine (where his creation, The True North Chili has sparked a chili cook-off as part of Eat! Vancouver, in the spring of 2003.) For Western Living he continues to provide an annual round-up of gift-set CDs each December.

Carte Blanche was the name of his popular weekly column in The Vancouver Sun, which ran for eight years before he resigned from it to contribute a regular West Coast restaurant column to The Globe & Mail." <Source: http://www.cbc.ca/discdrive/host.html>

Jurgen Gothe will host a new weekly show on Sundays from 5 to 6 p.m.

"CBC pulling long-running Disc Drive off the air"
by Pete McMartin, Vancouver Sun
Published: Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Disc Drive is dead.

The Vancouver-produced show, CBC-FM's perennial top draw and a fixture for evening rush-hour commuters across the country will go off the air this year.

The last show will probably air the week before Labour Day.

Hosted by Jurgen Gothe -- himself a Vancouver institution -- the program will have been on the radio in its 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. slot for 23 years.

Gothe's bemused, dulcet patter and his ever-changing playlist made Disc Drive a hit. His approach was low-key without being low-brow, and his musical tastes, eclectic. <Source: http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=db6c64ad-47cd-4b66-9c46-241089e2664e.
