Really?  Really?  Michael has had 9 lives on Newstalk 1010.  May be time to move on.  Got to hand it to him though.  He's been brought back in other capacities at least 3-4 times.  Says something about his talent.

Two former Jazz FM people; from the morning show?  Subject is in the news these days.  It seemed intentional to not go there.  Too Soon?  I would have enjoyed their thoughts.

I have brought this up to former bosses and was met with, "no it wouldn't work in Canada."

However as 2018 comes to a close I thought I might bring it up one more time.  I would love to see an Americana format in this town. There are tons of great Canadian talent that would fit the format.  It's one of the reasons I love traveling in the States.  Diversity!!!  Jazz , R&B, Americana, Blues, Oldies etc.  Here you can take the big three FM stations and basically not a big difference between them; but I am happy to see BOOM doing so well.  There's my 2 cents.  Thank you.  Come on Toronto...Take A Chance on Something new!!!!

Breakfast Television could learn a lot about working stats.  Name the stat and you won't find Breakfast TV; on the air.  Not even sub-hosts to keep the programming going.  Usually a re-run of CityLine. Meanwhile turn on American TV.  And for the most part either some of the regular hosts are on; or all of them; giving us regular programming and some holiday stories.  Toronto Morning TV doesn't seem to take holidays very seriously; when it comes to their audience.  Then again to be fair; their on air staff must love magement.

I'm really curious about this radio station.  Really I am.  There are two separate post categories on this station that add up to 110 posts.  110 posts.  I don't get it.  Legendary broadcasters pass away and we get maybe 4 posts.  I'm waiting for someone to tell me CKNT is the future of radio; but; after reading about there launch I'm afraid I'm still a little confused about this Excitement.  Not being sarcastic here, I just don't get it.  50's 60's 70's radio.  I think it's been done many times before.  Enlighten me please.

Bring back Mark Wigmore. A great lover of Jazz and also a great entertainment editor.  Terry does voice track mid days. Has done for years.

I don't know why; but I was surprised at the comment that everyone was voice tracked on Sirius/XM  I listen to Flash Phelps every day and he sounds like he's definetly live.  Although I've always said that a real pro will never let you know he or she is voice tracked; because they are so good at what they do..

Radiowiz.  The Fan never has to worry about another sports formatted radio station; in this town; at this time.  Just look at their numbers.

Kind of like the 104.5 CHUM-FM to CHUM 1045 refresh? 

I couldn't agree more cGrant.

Radiowiz.  Doesn't sound like a full time change of venue for Adam.  Maybe it is.  I read about him filling in; but it seems a little anticlimactic to me; after the big buildup.

Well, let's hope Shoppers has a great marketing campaign to let people know about this museum; because quite frankly, a drug mart is not where I would expect to find anything about Toronto's Musical history.

Interesting developments in Toronto. Toronto Mike reports that Adam Wylde left Rogers and Kiss 92.5. however he has some pre recorded segments for the weekend but then he is done. Word is he will be headed to Chum FM mornings to join Roger and Marilyn. Eventually the plan seems to be that when Roger and Marilyn retires the morning show is his. I have heard rumblings that his mom is looking to retire (mom is Marilyn)
