150 years ago on January 25th, 1867, Lavinia Hermione Gertrude Amanda Guelph, wife of Charles Wetherbee, died at the age of 46 and was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery.  She claimed to be a daughter of King George IV.  Exactly one hundred years later at 12:30 pm on January 25th, 1967, radio station CJOE began broadcasting on station 1290 from its studios on the third floor of Hotel London.  The radio station was owned by Middlesex Broadcasters Ltd. whose president was Joe Mcmanus.
