A Few Minutes with...Rhubarb Jones

JOE FM's Rhubarb Jones takes part in our brief Q&A about our favourite city!

BY EMIL TIEDEMANN

I HEART Edmonton is excited to introduce a new segment to our humble site, "A Few Minutes with...", which is a 6-part Q&A with local celebrities, TV/radio personalities, artists, athletes, or regular Edmontonians dedicated to bettering our amazing city.

Our first victim will be Rhubarb Jones, who only recently became Program Director over at one of Edmonton's most popular radio stations, JOE FM (92.5), playing "80s, 90s...Almost Anything!" Jones is also part of the on-air team at JOE FM, DJ'ing weekdays from 2-6PM.

I Heart would like to thank Mr. Jones for being the inaugural participant for "A Few Minutes with...", and for answering all of our hard-hitting questions. Okay, maybe they're not exactly Oprah-worthy, but still...

1. What is one thing about Edmonton that you think stands out from other Canadian cities? There is a real sense of community in Edmonton. I am always blown away by how many people donate their time and resources to charitable and community initiatives in the city. The people really do make a difference!

2. Do you have a favourite place to visit in E-town? I have two small kids, so I love going to some of the community playgrounds that are set up around the city.

3. If there was one thing you could do to improve the "City of Champions," what would it be? Raise the average winter temperature by 10 degrees!!!

4. Whyte Ave. or Jasper Ave.? Whyte Ave.; only because I'm a Southside guy! I am looking forward to Jasper Avenue's makeover!

5. What radio station do you listen to the most? That would be 92.5 JOE FM of course!!!

6. If you had to sum up the city of Edmonton in three words or less, what would they be? Great people!

Thanks Rhubarb!
