John Fife

It was a love of folk music that first brought John to the VHR family, as he convincingly pitched the idea of a folk show.

His wealth of knowledge of the folk genre was evident from day one, and his passion for music and his sense of humour shine through every Friday night.

Since then, John’s versatility as a program host has led him to host a country music show on Sunday nights, and you can often hear him filling in for other hosts on a regular basis.

When he’s not on the air, John can be found watching baseball, or picking guitar, playing fiddle and singing either online or at venues in the Valley.

John and his wife Barb now call Renfrew home.


You Ain't Going Nowhere

You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere is the station’s folk music program, so if you’re a fan of folk, make sure to join John Fife every Friday evening from 6 to 8 p.m.

John will spin popular folk songs, and he’ll dust off the album jackets to play some tunes you may not have heard for years – or ever heard for that matter.
As John says every week: Folk ‘Til You Croak!

Reserve Me a Table

Tune in every Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. to hear a great mix of country music with your host John Fife. John loves his country music, and it shows! He’ll play a wide selection of country songs from Ottawa Valley, Canadian, American and other international artists. You’ll get a little bit of everything, including an entertaining three hours every Sunday. Be sure to reserve your table.
