If you've browsed around the website for any time, you know I'm a big fan of Mike Stafford who does the afternoon drive show on am 640.
Yes, Mike and I have a history. We started working together back in 1979 in, in the little yellow house in Brampton and from the moment I met the guy I knew there was something special about him. (the picture is of me and Mike at the 1984 U-Know Awards)
Yesterday while sitting in my office in Brampton, trying to pass another day without radio, I listened to the Stafford Show and I was treated to five minutes and 20 seconds of some of the most compelling radio I've heard in a long time.
The Canadian radio market is funny, especially the "talk radio" market. To be blunt, it doesn't have a lot of bite.
But Stafford? Mike Stafford has bite, and intelligence and skill and guts - everything that talk radio needs in Canada.
I'm glad it's Friday because if you don't have time now, I want you to set aside five minutes and 20 seconds over the weekend to listen to a segment of Stafford's show from yesterday.
He was addressing the United Nations report that chastised Canada for using the term "visible minority", and I found it gripping. The Stafford Show
