THE PHOTOGRAPHER HARRY BENSON


THE PHOTOGRAPHER HARRY BENSON- 
By Bernard Bujold- 
The art gallery "Galerie Got" of Montreal is presenting the exhibition of renowned Scottish photographer Harry Benson who is known in United States and all around the world for his pictures of stars like The Beatles, Mohamed Ali, nine US Presidents and many other personalities. The pictures of Benson (88 years) at the Montreal exhibition are much about The Beatles including his famous one of the pillows fight... 
One the many subject photographed by Benson, but not seen at the exhibition, is the actual US President, Donald J. Trump, who he knows since over 40 years. Asked about Trump: Benson said that any journalist or photographer who met him for a work assignment is sure to get a good story. "Donald will always give you something, a angle for your story, and it would help your career. Donald Trump knows how to work with the media people." 
The exhibition in Montreal at the Got Gallery (50 St-Paul West) is on from April 28 to May 28, 2017.

GREGORY CHARLES AND FACEBOOK


GREGORY CHARLES AND FACEBOOK... 
By Bernard Bujold - 
Gregory Charles has always been open to new things and he demonstrates it again with his personal use of Facebook Live during his morning animation at Radio Classique. 
The concept of Facebook Live is relatively new but more and more public figures are using it like politicians at their gatherings, including Donald Trump...   
It will be necessary to see the evolution but it is obvious that other radio stations will copy the way that Gregory gathered radio and television with Facebook Live. The beauty and added value of the concept is undeniable! To be continued...

BALL, HOCKEY OR TV ?


BALL, HOCKEY OR TV...
By Bernard Bujold-
There are evenings where the choices of activities are more than the availability of the person... 
This was the case on this Thursday evening April 20, 2017 in Montreal. 
First was the fifth game of the Rangers-Canadiens playoff series at the Bell Center; nearby at the Windsor Station there was also the Daffodil Ball which brought together nearly 3,000 guests; and finally, for the less daring, there was the TV and the series BLACK LIST on NBC at 9 p.m with RAYMOND REDDINGTON and a special two hours... 
Personally, I chose that Raymond; my iPad for hockey; and a pizza for the feast...
