Party For The Late Martin Streek Tonight Raises $s For A Good Cause

By Karen Bliss

Friends of late Toronto DJ Martin Streek, a fixture on 102.1 The Edge for 25 years, 17 of those on-air, are throwing “A Party For Marty” on Sept. 6 at Toronto’s Opera House to celebrate the man whose loss is still felt in the music community 10 years after he took his own life at 45. Proceeds from the night go to the Canadian Cancer Society.


"The charity selected is the CIBC Run for the Cure.  It was Martin's favourite charity, and one that he participated in for many years,” Jeff Domet, Streek’s friend, Edge co-worker and co-organizer of the event, told Samaitanmag. “Marty was very active and 'crushed' this marathon every year that he participated in it. CIBC run for the cure is the Canadian Cancer Society. The money all goes to the same place.”

He said they could have selected a suicide prevention organization, but they chose CIBC Run For The Cure “because we knew for sure that would be something that Marty would fully support. We are keeping on his legacy supporting this charity that meant a lot to him.”

Hosted by former Edge personality Pete Fowler, A Party For Marty includes “some of Martin’s live-to-air DJs,” from his club gigs — DJ Dhingra, DJ Craig G, and DJ Shwarma — and remembrances from his former co-workers, such as Maie Pauts, Brother Bill and Ivar Hamilton. Pina Crispo,  former Edge promo director, is also involved in putting it together. -- Continue to read the feature in full on Samaritanmag.com
