I was one of the lucky few to have had a conversation with Gord Downie.
It was in my earliest days of radio. The Hip were performing at an event we were hosting and I remember I had a quick exchange with the legend. Of course, I was nervous and didn’t want to come on too strong…I don’t have any pictures, or audio of the conversation, but I will remember it forever. He looked at me, said hello and then asked me if I had a cat. That was it.
I have 2 cats, actually
