I’m always amused by poor writing, especially in broadcasting. There’s inexperience, which can be forgiven of course. And then there’s just plain sloppiness. I get a giggle out of noticing them and always regret not keeping the ones I find. I foolishly think I will remember them.

The Hamilton World of Motorcycles Expo is in the books. It goes by so fast. Now bring on the London show in 2 mere weeks!
The Hamilton Spectator posted this terrific video of our bike show here in Hamilton. See for yourself what all the fuss is about!
I’ll be spending the weekend at the Hamilton World of Motorcycles Expo so things will stay static here for a couple of days. And today I’m cheating a little by posting a blog I have up on the 981 Free FM website. The company that’s trying to get many of its workers to take a …
Wouldn’t it be terrific if everyone just told it like it was? No euphemisms, no buttering people up, just the cold, hard truth.
Why is it important that the chicken I’m about to eat was allowed to roam freely, attend the school of its choosing and dream of a better life before it was slaughtered, cut up and packaged?
Dieting. Meh. We both knew we had been putting way too many treats into our pie holes so we decided the first of the year was the best time to take a good run at losing some weight. Derek has joined Herbal One as a “spokesperson” and as the resident vegetable-slicer, I’m along for the …
On Friday, I had the good fortune to speak to a classroom full of first year radio and broadcast journalism students at Fanshawe College.
Buying a first home is a daunting task. Unless your name is Bieber or Kardashian, you’re likely going to have to make some compromises. And if you’re looking in Toronto proper, you’ve got your work cut out for you.
Funny 1410 has been on air since the very end of last year. If you recall, it’s a new format for a legendary (to me!) frequency here in London, where I worked the all-hit format many moons ago.
I wrote and posted this blog on the Free-FM website and it attracted a bit of reaction so I thought, let’s see how it plays here!
This minute I am holding myself back from doing a dance of joy around the house, singing “I don’t need a C-PAP! I don’t need a C-PAP!”
I heart Ricky Gervais! I think he should host everything including SPCA fundraisers and wedding receptions.
Free-FM offers a text alert system for a one-time charge of .50. It’s brand new. You’ll get a text in case of severe weather or a major breaking story. We’ll also text the morning’s top two headlines.
I’ve made a conscious effort to be less cynical. Unlike a skeptic who can be convinced by evidence, a cynic closes themselves off from a lot of experiences in life and I realized I had become one. So when I decided to move to London it seemed like a good time to try a new …
It started with 4 suspicious fires on the weekend all targeting adult-oriented businesses.
For years now I’ve been told I have mild sleep apnea. Next week I’ll get the results of my third sleep study at which, I am predicting, they will suggest that I get a C-PAP machine. That’s the Darth Vader mask that’s attached to a machine with a water reservoir and a steady stream of …
I’m a rock fan. I prefer pounding drums, wailing guitar solos and singers with passion that verges on a scream. And I don’t think that’s ever going to change.
