Roger Ashby on the air again...

He's back to his  radio roots in Kitchener this morning, live with Angie Hill on KFUN 99.5 Kitchener.
He sounds great!!!

Re: Roger Ashby on the air again...

It's only been a few months since the big goodbye, but wasn't he supposed to be starting some sort of Bell-backed streaming service where he picked all the music? That was how he planned to keep his hand in radio without having to get up at 3 in the morning. 

I wonder whatever happened to that or if it's still going to happen?

It can as he's still working in the "family". KFUN is owned by Bell.

He's not there permanently, it  was a "guest host" spot with Angie, but still he was back on the air in Kitchener and killed it https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/smile.png

RadioActive, his streaming show on iHeart Radio is still to come.  Initially they said it was to launch in January; but these things take time.

I was going to ask if he's "failing retirement". LOL
