We are saddened to share the news that Kerry Stratton’s decision to step down from hosting “The Oasis” is a result of his diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). He will continue his weekly program “Conductor’s Choice” which airs Sundays at 3 pm. We are devastated by this news; Kerry has been a vital part of our on-air family for decades, known for his intimate knowledge of classical music and timeless literary quotes.

Kerry is also well-respected in the classical music community. He’s a conductor that has lead orchestras around the world, and currently the music director and conductor of Toronto Concert Orchestra, a passion he will continue to pursue.

The fight ahead for Kerry won’t be easy, for him or his family – his wife, two sons, and teenage daughter. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up by his friend Alexandra Moorshead. We invite all our listeners to follow Kerry’s journey and show their support by visiting gofundme.com/supportkerrystratton
