How do you Like Them Apples?

On our Big Show Big Tour this week, while we were being chauffeured from business to business to hand out freebies and shake hands, co-host Blair and I got into an amazingly effortless and deep discussion about apples and apple varieties.  

The Groundhog Cometh

I can’t stand Groundhog Day.  There! I’ve said it!  And I don’t mean the movie, I mean the ritual of watching a flea-bitten varmint crawl out of a hole every February 2nd. 

Smart Students

On Friday The Big Show was invited to speak to a group of radio and broadcast journalism students at Fanshawe College.  Derek “Rock” Botten, Blair and I offered our takes on the business of broadcasting and hoped to impart a bit of our best advice  to them. 

Brandt’s Randt – My New Addiction

I used to be able to take-it-or-leave-it when it came to games on my iPhone but now one has a hold on me.  And this monkey on my back is the subject of this week’s Brandt’s Randt. 

On the Fringe

One of the best mainstream TV shows in recent memory signed off for good on Friday night.  And unlike so many shows before it, its finale tied things up intelligently and appropriately, leaving fans with a chuckle and a tear.  

A Big Ham

Hubby loves spiral ham.  He has wanted me to pick one up for a while now but I’ve been holding out because they’re so huge and there are only two of us. Plus, they’re twenty bucks and up and you’re paying for a bone!  

Rocking the Airwaves

A Comox, BC rock-radio host was fired last week in what appears to me to be a complete over-reaction to something he did on the air.  

Shattered Comedic Illusion

As a student of stand-up comedy I love to know little tidbits about the comics I enjoy. But imagine my surprise when I discovered a comic I’ve enjoyed for years is very likely a routine thief.  

Canada’s London Randt

This was my on-air take on the whole Canada’s London campaign after a city committee approved the rebranding campaign. It still needs full council approval but Canada’s London is likely going to be spread all over the city. Ugh.
