Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I really miss the cafeteria that was there before that this Plum market replaced. That was a great affordable breakfast and lunch option downtown and it was usually packed around noon. This Plum Market has big shoes to fill. That cafeteria was a twice a week place when I worked across the street. I...

Bob McCown out at Sportsnet 590 Toronto

TorontoSportsMedia.com is reporting that longtime Toronto sports talker Bob McCown will be doing his last show either Thursday or Friday. Rumoured to be interim replacement will be 590 afternoon guy Jeff Blair. To me, McCown is the gold standard of sports radio. In recent years he has been less inte...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Wow, I’ve never heard of Hal Naragon and I consider myself a Baseball history buff. Here’s a good Cameron story while I’m at it. In the early 80’s one of my dad’s friends was playing for the Mariners. Cameron knew my dad and asked if he could get friend on the show, and they worked out the details f...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

As someone who spends significant time travelling, I am a bit anxious to see what they will do with the streaming. I do like to be able to watch the Fox Sports app wherever I may be.

Re: Guilty! Yes, yes, OH YES!

Agreed, MW, he got off easy here. If he didn't intend to severely injure or kill the victim then he clearly had no logic at all. The first thing he should have expected to happen was Grimes to fall off the vehicle.

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

I’m a little south of their target (Canton area) but it seems most of the locals are pretty staunch Fox 8 viewers. Maybe it’s the long local morning show, as that’s a big deal in this area. I’ve always thought of them as equal with the ABC 5 crew and light years ahead of WOIO 19.

Re: CanCon You Like, CanCon You Don't Like

I’m disappointed that I grew up in Detroit, listened to Windsor radio and watched channel 9 all the time, and never really heard of most of these bands until a couple of years ago. Listening to Boom 97.3 from Toronto introduced me to a lot of bands I never heard of. And I hope you’re happy, stopnswo...

Only Stompin Tom could rhyme INCO, Stinko and Bingo all in the same song.
You have to WANT to like Stompin’ Tom. He is not something I can handle in large doses.

Re: CanCon You Like, CanCon You Don't Like

Blue Rodeo definitely Canadian. I know they’re all Toronto guys. If you guys don’t mind, I was hoping you could explain the term to me since I’m not sure I understand it properly. I actually was thinking more along the lines of what CanCon really means. I’m 41 so I don’t remember the glory days of ...

Re: CanCon You Like, CanCon You Don't Like

I don’t know if these guys are considered CanCon (I’m guessing they’re exactly that though), but in the last few years I’ve become a big fan of Blue Rodeo. I always heard about them on CBC and such, but I’ve come to see them as a Canadian version of the Eagles in the late 80s until now. I can’t thin...

Re: 'Russian Five' documentary is headed to Michigan theaters, releases new trailer

I thought this came out several years ago. I also saw a redundant version on an ESPN 20 for 20. The ones you’re talking about are closely related but not the same. While the Russian Five focuses on the Red Wing players from the 90’s, the 30 for 30 and Red Army focuses on the players of the Soviet N...

I remember the first time I was back in Detroit after a while away, and watching the morning news. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to to stay on 7 or 2. I couldn’t figure out if Alicia Smith or (God rest her soul) Jessica Starr was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. Both were absolutely wonderful on ...

Re: 97.1 the last few weeks..

I’ve recently gone back to listening to the ticket, but I can’t listen past 2. I don’t like dealing with angry people and Valenti just makes me nervous. The guy’s show personality is so abrasive that he’s uncomfortable to listen to.
