Andrew Cartwright

I’ve been a resident of the Ottawa Valley since 2011 after having grown up in Montreal.

So you wanna know about Cartwright, eh?

Well life in the ‘Frew is kinda laid back,
Ain’t much an old city boy like me can’t hack…
It’s early to rise early in the sack …
Thank God I’m a Valley boy!

I grew up quick and I grew up mean,
My fist got hard and my wits got keen…
And when I drink too much … watch out … ’cause I start to lean.

The people are nice and the air is clean …
And 98.7FM sure does seem…
Like the best fit for a quirky little man like me.

I’ve worked at Greek stations and on Native reserves …
Bigger ones, but that’s for the birds…
As 98.7FM to me…sure… is… the word.

I traveled far … without a car…
Totin’ my pack along a dusty road…
When along came a semi with a high and canvas covered load.

The driver said … “If you’re going to The Valley, Mack, with me you can ride…”

So I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside…
And when I arrived…I found the need to hide…
My beloved Montreal Canadiens jersey.

I wake early each morning… just me and my laugh…
But sadly I have yet to be asked for my autograph.

I can’t get a tan…
I have only one pan (seriously)…
But things could be worse for this old ham…
As my Uncle Frank says: “Dat’s for sure man” …
Because after all… I could be a Maple Leafs fan!
