Richmond Hill Post - - News -

Ziggy Lorenc was once one of the most rec­og­niz­able faces at MuchMu­sic, best known for her work on the show Life on

Venus Ave., a pro­gram for the ro­man­ti­cally in­clined that fea­tures mu­sic videos on the themes of love and sex. She be­gan work­ing for CHUM back in 1980 and was there when MuchMu­sic flipped the on switch for the first time. Lorenc cur­rently hosts a ra­dio show ded­i­cated to ro­man­tic mu­sic that’s on Zoomer Ra­dio AM740, which is run by for­mer Citytv and MuchMu­sic head hon­cho Moses Znaimer. The show broad­casts on an old CBC ra­dio sig­nal from the Sec­ond World War that is no­table for be­ing the longestrea­ch­ing chan­nel in the coun­try. “I’m the Night­bird, and I’m on late at night,” says Lorenc. “It’s love and ro­mance, the same thing I’ve been do­ing for a hun­dred years, and sex at mid­night, some dou­ble en­ten­dre blues out of Mis­sis­sippi, so it’s fun.” On the oc­ca­sion of Valen­tine’s Day, we get the scoop on Lorenc’s fave ro­man­tic tunes: • “Septem­ber in the Rain,” Di­nah Wash­ing­ton • “You’ve Changed,” Bil­lie Hol­i­day • “Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out to Dry,” Linda Ron­stadt.
