WINNIPEG, MB — If you missed it on social media, I’m no longer doing my weekend show on 94.3 The Drive. I’ll be honest with you, it just wasn’t the kind of show I want to be doing. Because I recorded it in my home studio every week a few days before it aired, there was no interaction with listeners. And because of time constraints, it was difficult to have guests. But don’t worry, something new and exciting is coming. And in the meantime, you can always find me here at MyToba.
Radio ratings came out this past week and here are the numbers in the demo that matters most in the radio world, adults 25 to 54 years of age.
It was just World Aids Day. And Elton John had some interesting stuff to say to Rolling Stone. “The end of the HIV epidemic is in sight. We just got to get people tested. If people have these tests, they’ll be diagnosed, they’ll be put on treatment, they won’t spread the disease and we’ll know where we stand with the population. Driving people underground is the worst thing you can do with this disease.”
I’ll be dropping by Ron Paul Garden Centre soon for our Christmas tree. I don’t think there’s a better selection anywhere and the staff really knows their stuff, especially Ray Dubois! And if you go this weekend, you can get a sleigh ride and a photo with Santa.
I’m glad to hear Clay ‘The Clipper’ McMurren is not packing it in after 52 years of styling hair, 45 of them at his shop in the Towers of Polo Park. It’s just a change of location. No word yet on where he’ll end up but I’m sure if you drop by and see him closer to the end of the month, he’ll be able to tell you where his new home will be. Check out Clay’s old ad with Bomber quarterback Don Jonas.
And I’ll end this week’s column with a great quote from a fellow radio person I really like, Cynthia Occelli. “When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom or criticize you, remember they’re telling you their story, not yours.”
