The only time I listen to the jewel is in the evening. They have a program called The Lounge. It's a little like the old style. easy listening FM that was prominent in the 60s and 70s, but with a bit of contemporary mixed in.

I like The Lounge also

I was doing my father in law's taxes and he still gets the Toronto Sun home delivery. So he had this receipt from Postmedia stating that he qualified for this digital news subscription tax credit. I never heard of it but I claimed it anyway.

Newstalk 1010 host Jim Richards tweeted today that he has received his first shot at one of the larger pharmacies in his neighbourhood ( which I believe is leslieville? )

Jim said the pharmacist told him that "I was the only person there to get vaccinated in two hours."

Hats off to Jim and everyone who works in radio for keeping the conversation moving forward, and letting their listeners and Twitter followers know what's going on, and where there are available vaccine openings. The advice given by wise big yellow board members to just walk in and inquire seems to be "shot on". 🤞💉

Sidebar: Jim Richards has quite the Twitter chops and a cool main page...

Ontario is reporting 86,565 new vaccinations yesterday

There used to be a site where you could type in a song and find radio stations currently playing that song.

Well. I have recovered. Two days of my life I will never get back.

25% of people who get the vaccine will have a strong immune response. Well, I was one of them. Wednesday night I got very cold and then my temp rose to 101 degrees and I was awake all night. Yesterday was a day of extreme fatigue. Today I am slowly getting better but still a bit achy.  I hope I won't have to go through this again with shot number 2.

People seem to forget that Towhey was a Rob Ford apologist and yes man.  He was also a rather mediocre low-ranking army officer and alt-right type radio talk show host.  Why 1010 kept him on after Rob Ford died and Doug Ford lost his bid to be Toronto mayor I have no idea.  But for some reason 1010 keeps going back to the well with this guy.  No, you shut up!

I remember when Christie Blatchford tore a strip off Towhey because he resigned as Rob Ford's chief of staff but didn't say why he was resigning. The guy never had any credibility.

Not sure where this thread is going but Bruce Arthur has been writing extensively in the Toronto Star about COVID-19 and its effects. Doing a hell of a job with it, too.

Does everyone have to do politics now? The Toronto Sun according to Brady.

He was on with Greg Brady today and he was talking about Covid and vaccines. No mention of any sports. Brady also said twice that he was with the Toronto Sun and he was not  corrected. Strange stuff.

So Bell would still be bigger even after the Rogers-Shaw merger according to the latest figures I can find based on revenues. 

Shaw $5.4 billion + Rogers $14.1 Billion = $19.5 billion
Bell - $24 billion
