I guess we don't get to hear Bob's thoughts...

So The Strombo Show today was a "best of" thing, so we didn't get to hear fresh thoughts from Bob and/or Alex about George's 'The One' gig. Too bad, as I was looking forward to hearing from them. Sigh.
Anyway, that was, as Barbara posted earlier, the last show for now. C'est Dommage.
So if you missed it, don't worry.
Okay, I'm stopping now, I'm making myself depressed. :(

UPDATE!!!

Okay, so I spoke too soon. Jim Richards is now hosting the show from T.O.
George et Bob are on the phone. Bob is fully behind George's choice to do 'The One'... and apparently Bob is writing a book called "Bob plus one", Teehee, I like!
Anyway, apparently next week it will be George and Bob live from L.A. -Rejoice!
Sorry about the mix-up!

It's okay Becky, only 48 more hours until we actually get to see for ourselves what The One will really be like. Whether or not it's fantastic or it defines the word SUCK, we'll all be able to breathe a little easier just knowing. The anticipation's been increasingly intense.

UPDATE:

The first hour of the show was a best-of, the second hour is live.

George calls in on the phone.

Whooppeeeee.

The change in events over the last couple of weeks seem somewhat surreal - from truncated motorcycle trip to hosting duties of The One. I read somewhere that he was selected over 200 other applicants.

I got home and logged in just before George came on the air!
Lucky me! (I usually don't get home in time to listen).

The Stroumbo Show live in LA next week!

Becky said...

THANK YOU JIM! Thank you for calling George on the fact that he's "trashed" Idol before! I've been waiting for someone to ask him that!

Alana said...

BLARGH! I got a phonecall and missed that part of the show, Becky. That sucks, I would have loved to hear how George responded...

Allison said...

ahh, i tuned in and heard that it was a repeat, so i turned it off and watch 'Groundhog Day' (worth it tho, Strombo is now Bill Murray)...now I'm a little sad, did I miss anything exciting??

Barbara said...

I was at The Just For laughs show 'Women Fully Clothed' (which was really funny) so I missed the Strombo show. I will have to catch up on it all from you later.

Barbara said...

So from what I understand they re-tooled the Strombo show from last week to this one and Jim (who hosts his own radio show in TO(I think)) will host the Strombo show with George live on the phone, from LA? Last week they were talking of this week being the last one...
Is that right?
I wish they would have done the MySpace bulletin to tell everyone this in the first place. George used to do a bulletin on MySpace to promote what was going on in the next Strombo show, now I guess that's up to Jim because the boy is too busy.

i miss george :(

Allison said...

ah, thanks Barbara. I don't remember them talking last week about how this week would be the last show, because George kept talking about how Bob was coming down to do the show with him. Anyways, at least will get to hear something throughout the summer!

Barbara said...

I am not sure Allison if I heard what I heard anymore, but I think that was what they were saying last week, that this week would be the last one for the season. Then again, it may have been some rumour I read on his MySpace or something someone else said. I tried to ask George for some confirmation but there was no reply. I guess he is busy. :-)
I am now trying to get reliable info from Jim Richards who is prob. just as busy. Hey, a girl can ask...

Becky said...

Apparently George and Bob have a studio lined up for next week, so thankfully it won't be over the phone.
George just answered the 'Idol' question with a bunch of garbage about how it was different. Meh.

I dislike Georgie's simplistic approach to world events. It's always coloured by the need to have one party seen as good and the other as bad. No matter what the facts, the scenario is always the same. I don't find him hip, I don't find him flip. I just find him to be as witty as a rural hick.

Hey anonymous, not everyone likes everyone, right? I don't think anyone here can argue with you solely because you're entitled to your own opinions. At any rate, we appreciate you dropping by and giving us your input.

Becky said...

Hey, I like rural hicks. Kidding!
Like Alana said, thanks for the input, we don't like the site to be too one-sided!
