Peter Griffin was an announcer at CHUM-FM Toronto starting in 1963, when it was a classical station. When CHUM-FM adopted the rock format in 1968, Pete moved to afternoons, and in 1971 was given the morning show. In 1972, he took on a partner in the form of station engineer David Haydu, one of whose radio names was Geets Romo (taken from a character on the 1961 Del Close & John Brent album, "How To Speak Hip"). They were the first morning team in Toronto radio. With Pete's dry humor, Geets' zany antics and multiple characters, Pete and Geets occupied the #1 slot in Toronto radio through 1977, yet in 1978 their show was cancelled. Peter Griffin remained at CHUM-FM until 1980, when he left for the morning show at Brampton's CFNY-FM. Meanwhile, Geets Romo appeared on rival Q107 with various morning hosts for two and a half years. The pair were reunited in 1982 on CFNY-FM, and resumed their morning show until 1987.
