One of my biggest bugaboos for traffic, news and hosts ..... "a cement truck is blocking ...." "workers are pouring cement" "cement is falling from".

Concrete, of which cement is a component along with sand aggregate water and other additives, is what is, being transported in a truck, being poured or is falling.

If a truck carrying loaves of bread is blocking a lane would the report be "a flour truck is blocking ....", as flour is a component of bread as cement is a component of concrete.

Selective outrage by the Sun ....l I guess it depends on your political leaning.

Sandy Annunziata ran up $4,100 in expenses to the taxpayers of his region travelling back and forth to the Jerry Agar show with no apparent outrage from the Sun ...... wait  Annunziata Conservative and Caroll is Liberal

All this morning they were issuing alerts to the effect .... Message to our listeners we are upgrading our equipment you may experience some outages.


Just like mace I have no connections with the industry other than when I used to phone in tips to the old CITY when Tom Labrakos, Dwight Drummond, sometimes The Inspector Mark Daily and Glen Cole wer on the assignment desk.

The only broadcasting I have done was over two way radio when I belonged to a volunteer organization in Peel for about 20 years

How about this morning on Jerry Agar with his panel.

One of the participants (owner of an auto detailing business), whilst they were discussing Sheer vs Trudeau possible lawsuit, made reference to a lawsuit he was involved in and had to disclose injuries to his "ball sack"

This is For Don Daynard if he still monitors .... takes me back to mid 60's young green lad from Ireland went on a bus trip to the Grand Ole Oprey sponsored by CFGM. Don and his then wife were on the bus trip to Nashville and a young lady scostantly serenaded the weary travellers with her ukelele singing Yellow bird on a continuous loop all the way from Willowdale to Nashville
