Even with a holiday, the business of radio and television continues on! The week starts with another edition of The Stombo Show. Listen here from 5-8 pm EST.
Coming up on The Hour this week:
New Zealand born, Australian raised and Nashville tweaked, award winning country artist Keith Urban. He has a new CD Defying Gravity. I was contemplating making a naughty comment about the CD's title...but I'll just say this, Keith is my favourite of Nicole Kidman's husbands that have appeared on The Hour...this is the other one.
Freelance journalist and the author of Fight Club, Choke and Pygmy, Chuck Palahniuk.

"It was for self-preservation. I got sick of taking him to the park and sitting there for hours freezing to death." ~ Walter Gretzky, Canada's most famous hockey dad, on building an ice rink for his son.
Q: If Mr. Gretzky built an ice rink for his son Wayne, do you think Mr. Fraser ever gave his daughter Sheila an abacus?
Whether she had an abacus or not, Quebec native Sheila Fraser has done quite well as Canada's first female Auditor General since her installation in 2001. All joking aside, Ms. Fraser's job is a very important one. Put simply, she makes sure that public money is being spent appropriately, as intended. On May 12th, Fraser's office released the Spring Audit Report.
