SOWNY » Grace Slick and Grateful Dead Interview 1967 - What is the Source ? » August 24, 2019 3:18 pm

I thought it might be "The O'Keefe Centre Presents: The Rock Scene - Like It Is! (1967)" too, like the article mentions, but its host was "Noel Harrison" and it didn't sound like the same voice. I suppose he could have been the overall host throwing to different interview segment staff. I also found an October 17, 1967 column from The Ottawa Citizen reviewing that show and mentioning Grace Slick. Could it be possible another media outlet in town grabbed that interview while they were up there on a mini press junket anyway?

If Stafford is turfed, I can't conceive of who might take his place. Will Supriya be back since they were so closely associated with each other? They're not likely to move Oakley back to mornings, and Peter Shurman has made it known many times he doesn't want a full time gig. So who's left? Possibly an outside hire or someone from another Corus talk station.

Maybe Matt Gurney could be coaxed back! https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/happy.png

Didn't catch the full show (and possibly they explained the rationale for this), but clearly sounded like Christie was remote'ing it ("phoning it in") with their ISDN or probably now IP-based "kit" from home or wherever else. The mic quality was different than Jay's voice, slight but perceptible delay as they interacted, and it was obvious they weren't in the same studio for that back-and-forth chemistry and banter. Given she's a newbie to a full-length radio slot, wonder why they wouldn't have her come down and do it in person to make it flow a little better?

Dave Trafford announced this morning (and had its host on) that Saturday nights from 7 to 10 pm on Newstalk 1010 will see CTV's Todd van der Heyden's "Viewpoints" show. "Long-form discussion, politics, technology, pop culture", etc.  This show is already available as a podcast and looks like CJAD aired it for a while - plus "We've been in other Bell markets across Canada" says Todd. 

I'm disappointed that we'll lose "In The Studio" with Blair and Bob in this slot, though - maybe they'll start doing their own podcast version of it.

On the episode posted today of Toronto Mike with guest Marc Weisblott (of the "12:36" newsletter), around the 70 minute mark, Marc recollects that there were two co-host tryouts with John Moore (one being Barb) and that Moore himself confided on-air he was "burned out" and that "he went to management" and told them he needed some help on the shift - then suddenly on vacation.

It'll be interesting to keep an eye on the slot and see what changes might transpire - and with a possible co-host?

Will John be back tomorrow?

He's away still with Dave Trafford continuing to fill in. Based on John's Twitter ( https://twitter.com/MooreintheAM ) looks like he's enjoying the vacation.

I noticed Barb's random appearance, too, this morning, and never heard a satisfactory answer on-air as to why she was there. My impression was a "test drive" of a co-host format to attempt to freshen up the format and what most stations (i.e. the music ones) in the market are doing. For what it's worth, I thought John and Barb had a decent, easygoing chemistry that seemed to "click" fine and would only develop more over time.

A bit of a rough listen indeed. Stiff and awkward - and that's being charitable.    But, I'm willing to give them some time to settle into *some* sort of groove.

Poor newscaster Indira Tarachandra got pulled far more into the show and giving opinions than she likely would've liked ("Is that a compliment or not if construction workers hoot and holler at you?"), but at least managed to come out mostly unscathed.

One offhand comment made by Lawrence Morganstern was how him and preceding timeslot comedian Glen Foster were "poached" from Funny 820 and they jumped over to this station. Not sure if that's the best career move. However, that earlier show "Foster & Decker" was actually reasonably listenable.

Does any one know what Bell will do with this time slot. Will they go back to 3 local shows or keep it as it is now.

Not sure on the GTA vs. other-area shows question, though John Moore on Newstalk 1010 this morning mentioned that it would be announced "this week" who would replace The Motts on-air starting this coming weekend.

I enjoyed Larry on his 1010 weekend morning stints a few years ago (before being replaced by the return of The Motts) - and was impressed at how he did stretches of that show with no callers, guests or board-op banter - stream-of-consciousness indeed. As for yesterday's Sunday Trivia Show, he gamely (no pun intended) did his best, but there's a lot of moving pieces to things and rhythms to learn - it improved during the course of the show but was pretty rocky.

Based on her Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/carolineacameron/ ), looks like Caroline Cameron is doing a "road trip" vacation (Oregon and California). Maybe taking a well-deserved vacation after the Olympics wrapped.

By the way, Agar is making frequent references on air to the fact that this is his eighth anniversary at CFRB, likely longer than he's ever worked anywhere. Anyone recall who he replaced? If memory serves, I think it was Bill Carroll. 

Right you are. There's video of that "hand-off":
