Your radio has changed....

The news arrived in a “Programming and Promotions Update” email from CFRB this past Thursday announcing that two new shows would occupy the Sunday evening timeslot of 9-11, effective September 9th. Gone from the line-up was “The Strombo Show”.

As a viewer of The Hour, I’d always considered the radio show to be a bonus…sort of like the “extras” feature found on a dvd. An eclectic blend of fun and frivolity, awesome music, with a handful of regular features tossed into the mix, among them Questions About Stuff and the Advice segment. Another unique aspect of The Strombo Show was the interface with its audience through the social utilities of Myspace and Facebook. Not only did this allow listeners to participate in the program, but it enabled people from around the world to connect with one another.

Listening to the interaction between George and Bob was akin to sitting in on two friends shooting the breeze. I would be remiss in not mentioning the contributions of Alex (a favourite of many) and Ryan Doyle for filling in over the summer months.

For the listeners of The Strombo Show, the two hours always went by quickly and never seemed quite long enough. Good times indeed. But as we know, sadly, all good things must come to an end…

My 2 cents - When the Strombo show first went to air I recall there was, more often than not, discussion about social or political issues with callers being asked to phone in and air their views. The discussions between Bob and George about various topics, ie. music, and other likes and dislikes were interesting. The show lent insight about the hosts, including Alex later on, who added another dimension. But toward the end of its run the show seemd to lose focus and direction - although some listeners still enjoyed the banter between friends - not that that any of that was a bad thing !!

I'm sure George needs the time for other commitments too !

I think George and Bob had always wanted to have their own radio show together, so they accomplished that !
