The Hour. Last week of January
The Strombo Show will be 3 hours of chat and music... from 5pm to 8pm EST
You have a choice between hockey and music. George may have chosen hockey but he left you a three hour show packed with music, conversation and love... maybe.
It's fresh, new and entertaining in any case. But he will understand if you watch the All Stars.
What's coming up on The Hour?
It's looking like it's Authors week on The Hour.
Winter is a very good time to stay inside and become engrossed in a children's book, a biography, a spiritual guide book, a book about music or something to turn the winter blahs to giggles.
