Today On CKTB

April 8, 2008 @ 05:25

Just a reminder that this morning between 10:30 and 11:30 I'll be hosting the Tom McConnell Show on 610 CKTB.

Tom is going on paternity leave for four months and they’re looking for a temporary replacement, so I’ve thrown my hat into the ring.

Let’s turn into a live version on the radio. CKTB has a huge signal that can be heard throughout the GTA. Here are the phone numbers.

905-688-CKTB (2582) / 1-877-610-CKTB / Pound 610

And here is the streaming link.

Sunday On CFRB

April 4, 2008 @ 09:54

The great Jim Richards is hosting the John Donabie weekend morning show on Sunday, and he's invited me to come on and talk about some of the issues that affected Torontonians this week.

I don't know exactly what time I'll be on, so you'll have to listen to the whole show starting at six am.

I know it's a tall order to rise at such an early hour on a Sunday, but maybe you can wake up and do a little mornin' shaggin' while you wait for my segment.

Jim and I will talk about Mats Sundin, the penny and Air Canada.

Politics At Its Best

March 17, 2008 @ 09:28

I just listened to an emotional interview with Brenda Martin on the John Oakley Show.

A distraught Martin remains in a disgusting Mexican prison, another Canadian victim of a whacked out judicial system in a backward third world dump.

As it stands, the Liberals have taken a great interest story with former Prime Minister Paul Martin having visited Martin in prison, and Liberal MP Dan McTeague pushing from all sides for the Harper government to do something.

As I wrote last week, the Harper government should do something; The Prime Minister should make a statement about the welfare of Canadians in Mexico and the crappy treatment we’ve been getting over the past couple of years.

Having said that, don’t be fooled by the actions of the Liberals. This is the perfect opportunity for the opposition to make political hay.

It was kind of the former Prime Minister to visit the prison last week, but this shouldn’t open the door for the rest of the party to start hooting and hollering while placing unrealistic expectations on the current government.

It’s an emotional issue that has the sitting government caught between a rock and a hard place. Despite being extremely frustrating, diplomacy plays a part in this and you’ve got to believe if winning this women’s release was that simple, she’d be back in Canada by now.

Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier spoke with his Mexican counterpart on Saturday, but to this point, that’s about the extent of official government response.

It’s a touchy situation that has to be dealt with delicately by those in power; meanwhile its easy pickin’s for an opposition that had a dreadful record of Foreign Affairs while it enjoyed power under a bumbling fool named Jean Chretien.

Last Night On The Radio

March 12, 2008 @ 10:33

Here's an example of some great radio.

I actually grabbed this with a cassette machine while sitting in my office last night in Brampton.

Jim Richards, one of the best broadcasters in Toronto was interviewing Punch Andrews of the MIX, who's losing a battle with lung cancer.

It was a fabulous hour of radio that took the listener on a roller coaster of emotions as Punch told his story of being diagnosed with this vile and disgusting disease at the youthful age of 42.

Towards the end of the show Punch explained what would be the hardest part of his passing.

Tonight With Jim Richards

March 11, 2008 @ 11:54

Do yourself a favour and make sure your sitting by the radio tonight for the Jim Richards Show on CFRB.

Jim’s guest will be MIX 99.9 jock Punch Andrews who’s in a vicious battle with lung cancer.

It’s not good, Punch is in "stage four advanced."

But Punch will join Jimberly at eight o’clock to talk about his situation and hopefully raise awareness. It should be compelling radio.

The Jim Richards Show. CFRB – Weeknights 7-10 pm.
