Welcome to The 'X' Zone...
There were 3 things that young Rob McConnell wanted to do in his life.
1. A musician;
2. A Police Officer;
3. A Broadcaster.
Well, the young Rob McConnell, who was raised in the multicultural area of Montreal known as Park Extension accomplished all three goals and now is taking on new and exciting adventures in life and learning each and every day.
Music has always been a part of Rob McConnell’s life. Born in Montreal in 1952, after teaching himself to play guitar, woodwind instruments, percussion and vibraphone (and he does a great job playing the piano with two fingers!) Starting at age 16, Rob could be found playing in garage bands on the South Shore of Montreal. While playing the part of John Lennon in one of the first Beatle Clone bands “The SelBeat” Rob would be found playing bars and wedding receptions to playing at a motorcycle club's party in Sorel.
From a very young age, the media, radio and television intrigued young Rob McConnell.
As a youth, Rob was a guest on The Magic Tom Show (Tom Auburn) and on The Johnny JellyBean (Ted Zeigler who went on to be a regular on the Sonny and Cher TV Show) at the studios of CFCF TV Channel 12 on Ogilvy Avenue also in the Park Extension neighborhood.
In his late teens, Rob could be seen sitting and chatting with Leonard Cohen, having lunch with Cliff Edwards from the great Canadian group, "The Bells", teaching First-Aid Senior and Preliminary for the St. John Ambulance Association where, he was the youngest certified senior first-aid instructor. Rob even worked the home/security protective detail for then Commissioner Brian Mulroney.
In the late 60s’ Rob played Montreal’s British Pubs, the French Bistro’s in historic Old Montreal, church and high school dances, to playing the Coffee Houses of Montreal’s McGill University’s Aylmer Street area where he met and played with a little known but up and coming Canadian artist, Gordon Lightfoot at The Yellow Door.
In his later years, Rob worked with such international artists such as B.J. Thomas, Bobby Curtola, Linda Gentille, Brighton Rock and Peter Noone.
Rob enjoyed off time with his friends at Montreal's The Maiden Head Inn where he met and became friends with Ferddie Furtado and at The Cock'n Bull enjoying the music and comedy of Festival of Laughs musical comedy artists, "Bowser & Blue." During his years, Rob has also crossed paths with such greats as Danny Kaye, Red Buttons, Paul Williams, Burgess Meredith, Liza Minnelli just to name a few.
