Sometimes finding your once favourite muchmusic VJ can be like a pop-culture Where’s Waldo. For every still visible Rick Campanelli, Leah Miller and George Stroumboulopoulos, there’s countless Bradford Hows, Rachel Perrys, Namugenyi Kiwanukas.
But everyone now and then, a former VJ will pop up and will flood my memory with hours and hours of musical flashbacks of the Much on Demand variety, that I can’t believe it’s taken this long. At least that’s what happened when I caught CTV’s The Listener, which saw VJ bad-boy Rainbow Sun Francks guest starring as a police corporal. After some quick research, I found out that Sun Francks actually starred for a few seasons on Vancouver filmed and cult-classic Stargate: Atlantis. So sci-fi geeks, please excuse my ignorance. Rainbow is also on Twitter too! Man! Where have I been?!?
Those who enjoy a good flashback as much as do, haven’t missed out. It looks like Rainbow is around for at least the season of The Listener.
Now…where the hell is Amanda Walsh?
