A Special Night For Petey

June 20, 2011 @ 10:57

Everyone is welcome to gather at the Charlotte Room on Thursday night to celebrate the life of Peter Griffin who passed away last month.

A whack of people who used to work with arguably Toronto's best ever morning man will be there, but it's also open to those who loved to listen to Pete and Geets.

Come on down, reminisce and raise a glass to a great guy.

Thursday night, seven o'clock, The Charlotte Room, 19 Charlotte St. Toronto.

Humble And Fred Condom

June 15, 2011 @ 08:59

Hey Fred,
Funny you should ask. I'm in the process of moving and was cleaning out a drawer on the weekend and found the Humble & Fred condom package (for some reason the condom is missing:).
Regards,
Neal

The Humble and Fred Condom campaign actually won an award in 2000.

Humble And Fred Phone Cards

June 14, 2011 @ 12:15

We issued these back in 1998 when people still used pay phones. Hey, they were cutting edge at the time.

Thanks to Christopher Moloney who sent this along with a note "How long has it been since my last shot? I found a Humble & Fred calling card inside my Immunization Record"

Does anyone have a picture of a Humble and Fred condom?

My Favourite Berger

June 1, 2011 @ 16:38

It's been a bad month for Howard's on Toronto radio. First of all my bud and former colleague Humble Howard got the bag, and today it happened to Howard Berger at the Fan 590.

Berger had been on the Fan as a hockey reporter since 1988 but today they decided he was no longer useful.

I'm not going to beat around the bush, Howard Berger was one of those love him or hate him type of guys. It seems for every fan he had, there were as many or more detractors. I don't know why, I liked the guy, and I still do.

Who knows, maybe part of the problem was jealousy. I mean really, the guy's job was to go to every Leaf game, home and away, for the past 23 years. (insert joke here)

But you know what I mean, while the average Joe had to pull on his boots and sweat out a long day, Howard's job was to watch hockey games and talk about them... and oh yea, he got the summers off.

Now tell me that isn't every man's dream job.

I don't know if it was Howard's style, his delivery or what he said, but he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way and that's being played out today on twitter as a pack of weasel goofballs piss all over the guy on what has to be a tough day.

I don't understand it because I liked what Howard did, and whenever I listened to the Fan (which I do rarely now) I liked it when Howard did his thing. I liked what he had to say, I liked his perspective.

I liked how he treated me when I did the sports beat and our paths crossed.

But now he's gone. After 23 years what seemed like a good idea all of a sudden turned into a bad idea.

I would have thought with Rogers hot on the trail of Maple Leaf rights; Howard's job would have been solidified. Instead he becomes expendable.

Hang in there Howie. Who knows, maybe somebody else will give you a call? But then again, speaking from experience, maybe they won't.
