Biography

Boliska had made a name for himself as a disc jockey who got listeners talking. He also made them laugh, and became known for telling what he called the "World's Worst Jokes".

When he lost, that led to another stunt, where Boliska stayed away from his show for several days, saying he was now too discouraged by the loss to do his show. A hypnotist was called in, and Boliska's self-esteem was restored. Boliska left CHUM in late 1963 to go 'across the street' to CKEY.

When he came to CKEY in 1963, he ended up as the second voice on 'The World's Worst Jokes' both on 'EY and, after he left in 1965, on the syndicated version carried on many stations across Canada.
