Does 640 not listen to itself?

I realize most listeners don't typically listen to one station all day, BUT AM640 has a habit of creating their shows as stand-alone islands.  Instead of a nice flow of ever-changing topics throughout the day, 640 will repeat topics from a previous show.  When Stafford and his ever-interrupting board monkeys introduce a topic (and generally milk it for all its worth), the next host, Tashia and then Kelly and finally Grandpa Oakley also talk about the very same subjects. It's highly repetitive and shows that producers don't seem to get together and compare notes.

But, then again, they have virtually no numbers and seem to have no interest of increasing them. Sad, really, that such a golden opportunity is wasted.

cGrant sounds like he's a P1 listener.

No bus cancellations in Northumberland this morning.

AGREED!    Do you know anyone who doesn't have AM 640 pre-set on their vehicle's radio receiver?    Maybe it's just for 3, 4, 5 times a day like the highly vaunted 680 News.  For whatever reason, people are tuning into their faves like Oakley, Conrad Black, Cam Stewart & Lou Schizas

I always enjoy Lord Black's visits to Oakley's show.  Say what you want about the guy, but he comes across as smart, well-informed and very well spoken.  I can put up with locker-room bombast about betting lines, pizza deals and wing sauces, but every once in a while it's refreshing to hear some intelligent conversation.

cGrant is evidently a clever marketing tool under contract to Toronto 640 to stir up this kind of feedback; do you agree Charlie?

No.  Why should I?

Because you're obviously a lateral thinker, like Conrad Black

Respectfully, I have no idea what you're talking about.  I just enjoy Conrad Black's appearances on Oakley's show.
