|Humble, Not-so-Humble, and Fred|
But John Doyle is usually too busy so I end up doing it.
Then it was off to Humble & Fred's secret Five Hour Energy Studio in darkest Etobicoke. The former CFNY dudes have been carving out a new niche on the Interwebby for a full year now and just came off an additional summer stint on Kingston radio. It's always fun yakking with the duo who enjoy what they do and do it well. You can tell just by listening, and you can do that here.
Did my usual Wednesday at 12:35 live chat with Scott Thompson at Hamilton Talk Radio's CHML. Scott is fast on the draw, likes to keep it moving and is always thinking two questions ahead.
Scott wanted to talk first about All in the Family and the anatomically-correct "Joey" doll we spoke about months ago. A listener send him pictures of the lil' pecker as proof.
This leads to talk of a show NBC thinks has elements of All in the Family this fall--The New Normal. Ellen Barkin plays a bigoted Nana who is a cross between Archie Bunker and Sue Sylvester (the latter probably because this sitcom was developed by Glee boss Ryan Murphy).
Scott wonders if All in the Family would fly today. I say cable fare has taken that edge away from network TV.
listen in here.
Friday morning at 7:45, I can be heard giving my Top 5 shows of the season to my old pals Erin Davis and Mike Cooper on Erin & Mike's Morning Show on Toronto's 98.1 CHFI.
