Former 1010 talker Peter Shurman is in for Cutrara this week, and says that over the Summer, he'll be in for Tasha, Stafford and god-knows who else.  He's a capable host, and a good fill-in IMO.  Hopefully, he won't start doing Frank Leo spots...

More law troubles with him.  He will be turning himself in for breaching bail and not residing with surety.

Yes, of course!    Money I make following Cam Stewart's tips is invested in securities touted by Lou Schizas.     It pays to listen to AM-640.    Doesn't everyone?

Over on Bay Street where Mr. Schizas is known as the Cam Stewart of equities, Lou is considered a strong candidate for next Bank of England governor

What I found surprising and kind of ironic is that on the same day Sears filed for bankruptcy protection, every radio station I listened to was running endless ads touting "Sears Days." But after hearing the news, all I heard was "Sears Days ... Are Numbered."

I'm guessing these spots were arranged long in advance, but considering the headlines, they certainly were great moments in bad timing and maybe they should have pulled them.

I was listening to Lou on am640's business update yesterday talk about why Sears is in the state it's in, and he explained that the head of Sears had the idea of becoming the next Warren Buffett, and took the company in a disastrous direction. Lou is one of the better personalities on 640, he does a good mix of practical info and pop culture spin, and I totally share his buttertart obsession. ( I never shopped at Sears for music, K-MART and Woolco got my allowance every week for tunes.)

A terrible story about a legendary jock won't go away, even three years after his death.

Casey Kasem did a lot of things right in radio and in life. But from everything I've read, his choice of a wife was not one of them. This story does nothing to change that opinion.

Sears Canada is not entirely dead.
If they were serious about shaking hands with the grocery business, they've got a good chance up against Loblaws/Joe Fresh.
I'm actually surprised (by now) that Sears has not been sold to Metro, Sobey's or whoever out there that may wish to think a little more like Loblaws/Joe Fresh.

Interesting look at a new way to generate revenues for your podcasts...this could break things open...tapping into video-pre-roll ads...just wondering if it will be similar to ads we see on YouTube...

Here is more on this...
