Pictures and Stories

There was a snow storm going on in Toronto Thursday. Many of the audience members who booked The Hour this night cancelled. So if you were near the CBC building in Toronto at 4:20 this afternoon you could have found a seat at The Hour. In the end 32 intrepid fans showed up.

I was first in line.

So we had George all to ourselves.
Any questions? Was his favourite question for us.

Hence the many photos of George telling stories and answering questions.
Did you know for example, that George has his own production company and reads scripts in the summer. He was also telling us that's coming up on the Hour are interviews will a series of former Canadian Prime Ministers including Brian Mulroney who says some surprising blunt things.

All the guests were pretaped today because of the storm.
They taped the interview with David Wilkins in the studio in the morning before the storm hit.

George taped most of his intros and interactive segments in front of us. We also got to be the Friday audience... Ah the magic of Television. They just put it all together like it should be and it looks smooth when you see it at 8 pm or 11pm or 3am... whatever your preference...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now let me tell you about Karma the wonderful lady who started the strombo forum.
I knew making jewelery was one of her many talents. I could not find CBC logo earrings in the CBC shop or anywhere else for that matter. So I asked if she could make me some.
I have to show my support of the CBC.
She figured out a way and made a pair for me and pair for whomever I thought would enjoy CBC earrings. So there are two pairs in the world and they came in the mail to me this week. I wore one pair Thursday to The Hour. Also wore them to a job interview... I got a compliment on them from the interviewer.
George noticed them too.
The other pair goes to the wonderful, patient, pleasant woman who books The Hour audience.
Thank you Siobhan, for waiting for the audience to tear themselves away from George after the show and photos ops and the stories and the hugs. I know you are not the only one who waits around for us. I thank everyone.



Any questions?

The earrings are awesome! You should mass produce them and sell them on this website. I would totally buy a pair and I'm sure other people would too.

Barbara said...

I'll let Karma know. Thanks Sarah.
This site is not commercial though. The CBC should buy them from Karma and sell 'em at the CBC shop. Or Karma can sell them from the strombo forum. I'm just happy to model them.

Ditto on your thank you to Siobhan and the rest of the people who work on the hour! I've been to the show a few times this season and am always more impressed every time I leave than the time before. The taping runs seamlessly - everyone knows their job and is a real pro. George is the perfect host, running from audience questions to the stage for the taping with seconds to spare.
It's a great experience to see the show taped in person and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the GTA or visiting the GTA. Plus as a bonus, George will stick around and answer every single question...even if he has a temp of 102...(I felt very guilty b/c I didn't realize he was sick, he hid it very well until you saw him up close).

Ah, snow storms. Not to make light of the situation, but that is one of many reasons why i prefer Vancouver.

Hawa said...

sounds like you had fun!
i'd never go in that storm =|

It's interesting to hear what goes on during a taping. Being from the great plains, I will probably never see a show or meet George. It's nice to know he is as friendly off screen as he seems on screen. I hope the people at the Hour appreciate what a great ambassador you are Barbara.

Barbara said...

Hawa, How come they didn't have great class trips like that when I was in school?
Loring, didn't Vancouver get a little snow storm or two this winter?
Thank you Allan.
Erin, I agree, how could I not?

Paul said...

the people at the hour realize it, thanks barbara.

Barbara said...

Thank you Paul for putting a stroumboulopouli link on The Hour's main page! You are so sweet!
I know you don't need earrings Paul but I'll think of some token for the help you have been to me re: the Best Stories Ever.
