Leah Hurst Lywood

If someone would have told me a few years ago that I would be a part of the creation of an online streaming radio station, I most definitely would have asked you where in the universe you landed here from. I have always loved music as a part of my soul, performed with percussion and back vocals with a band in my teens into my twenties and collected vinyl like it was the premise of my being. 

Every special occasion growing up since the age of 4, I received my first transistor radio in a black leather case, music store certificates, vinyl and anything even closely related to music. I got my first cassette player at the age of 9 which was followed by a “Realistic” complete stereo with the turntable and speakers in my room by age 13. Something I think my father began to re-think when he would come home from work and Led Zeppelin was screaming through the house.

Here it is, much later in my life. HHOL started with Russ “Big Daddy” and I talking about his desire to create a community radio station to assist locally in every way possible. We took his desires and ideas combined with a few of my ideas to get things started, Lee joined us in every way and VOILA! The birth of the Halton Hills Online Streaming Radio with we the local
“Three Muskateers!”

I have taken on the “producer” position, social media, web master, miscellaneous and other bits including “mom’s spit” as Big Daddy calls it and being on air. Oh, and of course trying to keep my two partners in line…biggest job of all!   

Join me weekdays, Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on our HHOL streaming radio station live!
