Musical icon, former CJOH host Maloney dies at 77
Ottawa's Frank Sinatra has been silenced. Dick Maloney -- the host of Saturday Date on CJOH television in the '60s, and a well-known and loved entertainer -- passed away Thursday at age 77.
For the past four years he was confined to a bed, with a broken neck sustained in a fall on Sparks Street.
He was a regular on the Ottawa music scene for more than four decades, and continued to be featured weekly on Oldies 1310.
