Alumni Memory: Terry Murray, BJ ’76

Oh Lord, Won’t You Buy Me A Carleton BJ

At Carleton (1972-1976), I minored in economics – apparently one of the first journalism students to do so. I was headed for a career in business reporting, first as a summer intern after graduation at the Globe and Mail Report on Business, and then for a few sad Maclean-Hunter business magazines. But along the way, I developed an interest in medicine, and in 1982, began a lifelong career as a medical reporter. The pic below is a scan of the lyrics of “Oh Lord, Won’t You Buy Me A Carleton BJ,” written in ~1975 by my classmate Rudy Luuko (and sung to the tune of “Mercedes Benz”).It contains some outdated references, like to This Week Times Two, a university newsletter that came out twice a week. – Terry Murray (BJ ’76)
