It's Summertime!

George Gershwin summed it up best: "Summertime, and the livin' is easy". In case you missed it, the much anticipated Summer Solstice arrived early this morning! Of course summer means different things to different people. One thing it means to me is spontaneous roadtrips with music blaring from the car stereo. If you are looking for some new music to add to the soundtrack of your summer, check out today's edition of The Strombo Show (5pm EST) on one of these Corus Radio stations: The Edge 102.1 (Toronto) The Fox 99.3 (Vancouver) Power 97 (Winnipeg) Y108 (Hamilton) FM96 (London).

If you are a fan of The Hour, one downside to summer is that we are now into repeats. Perhaps you'll be able to catch an interview you missed when it originally aired or have the opportunity to re-watch a special favourite.

Glad to catch the Super Dave interview. Missed it when it originally aired. Shout out to Fuji!! Confess though that I turned off the Suzanne Somers' interview. Her irresponsible and half baked medical theories make me crazy. If I can go the rest of the summer without seeing Jenny McCarthy? All will be well. Happy Summer!

I had a small question concerning these repeat broadcasts. I ended up missing last night's broadcast of the Micheal Buble episode. I was just wondering if perhaps they could rerun it during te latter part of the summer. Do they only rerun the" Best of" Friday shows as well as the "Best of 2008" episodes? There muat not be a lot of those episodes, so they could rerun them a couple of times? I was just hoping that they could rebroadcast the episode I miss. (I would also surmise the episode on Sunday night at 2 am will be tonight's episode rebroadcast)

When does George come back for the new season anyhow?
