Summer Strombo Shows....(say 3 times fast!)

Shows for July 20th - 25th

The Strombo Show was broadcast from CBS Studios in Hollywood for the second week, with the help of his Toronto crew at The Edge.
A topic discussed: If your employer were to ban Facebook would you quit your job? Prompting an on-air phone call from two members of TV's Rent-A-Goalie and hilariously inspiring a facebook group.
Along with the eclectic range of music, George talked with Rob Halford, lead singer from Judas Priest, about their new album Nostradamus.

*Although The Hour's interviews are re-runs from the previous season, I've added links for a few recent tid-bits about some of the guests, for your enjoyment.

Very good week ahead. No Bryan Adams - whew!

Ryan Reynolds is in one of my guilty pleasure movies - 'Just Friends'. The lip synching to 'I Swear' gets me rolling in laughter every time. So worth a rental!

Eager to see the Morgentaler interview again with fresh eyes after the Order of Canada dustup.
