David Pritchard (electronic, experimental)

David Pritchard was born in England during the Second World War but his family emigrated to Canada and settled in North York, Ontario in 1952. As a teen he started his own pirate radio station called CBIG where he broadcast in his Willowdale neighbourhood. He learned to paint and play music but would gain notoriety as one of the first DJs when CHUM launched their FM station in the late 1960s where he would regale the listener with esoteric stories and exotic music from all over the world including electronic experimental music he’d composed himself. He would often claim the material was demo tapes sent in from a listener named Fred. Pritchard was also the first North American artist ever signed to Island Records where his album ‘Nocturnal Earthworm Stew (Bouillabaisse Nocturne Aux Vers De Terre)’ was released 1976. David died of cancer in February 2005. - Jaimie Vernon, The Canadian Pop Music Encyclopedia
