C. Black doesn't "connect" with some on SOWNY so best that those with high blood pressure issues ignore this

I admit never having had time for something called Jewel 88.5 until the SOWNY announcement that the inimitable Roger Ashby is heard there Sunday mornings 9 - noon.   It may inspire a book "Roger and Me"       

Also airs there Saturday afternoon from 4-7 PM if you don't want to wait or if that's a better time for you.

Thank you.    Is anyone carrying Ashby's Sunday Oldies show, other than Jewel 88.5?

Profiting from COVID-19 is the essence of Happy Capitalism surely!

Investing in solid Canadian corporations such as Corus Entertainment while shares are affordable is a way to support Canadian employment and keep Canada great still again.    Do you disagree?

   I'd like to know why they sold the CRTC on an Oldies format and then completely abandoned it before hitting air    

Are there any oldies-format broadcasters left within SOWNYs listening area?    Even AM-740 and 560 CFOS have gone largely best of the 70s, 80a + 90s

Don Cherry is not unlike Conrad Black.      If a broadcast or a newspaper column does not draw a number of irate comments, it was unsuccessful.    Show business.

A leaf-thru the Life & Entertainment sections of any of the GTA's four newspapers frequently indictes "Contributor" as the author of articles.   That indicates they came from free lancers
