First things first though. In Radio 2 Land...
Sunday night 8- Midnight. Tune in to your local CBC Radio 2 station OR listen online to The Strombo Show. It's 4 hours of commercial free radio. George. Bob. Tunes. Talk. Guests. It's basement radio taken to a whole 'nother level kids... enjoy.
Now it's over to TV land and the source of my amusement/laughter/frustration/dilemma.
Each week, we are thoughtfully emailed a list of the guests to air the following week. It's right from the fountain of knowledge from The Hour's offices. Official. Hot off the presses. And it's very much appreciated. HOWEVER, sometimes there is a wrinkle. That wrinkle being that that there is often more than one person of note with the same name in this big bad world of ours! This is the dilemma for Monday. Press on dear ones...
Monday January 4th
Will the REAL Peter Mettler please stand up?
So... the first guest on this date could be THIS dude. Peter Mettler -- Mixed Marial Artist. Nicknamed 'El Pulpo'. Fan of the bald pate. More than likely he could kick your ass. I am betting it's NOT him. But big congrats on the arm work and tight abs pal!
My bet is the guest in question will be THIS gentleman. Peter Mettler. Acclaimed, award winning Canadian Filmmaker. Fan of the unkempt, slightly bushy hairstyle. His latest work which was shown at The Toronto International Film Festival is called Petropolis -- An Aerial Perspective of the Alberta Tar Sands. Reviews tell that this film provides an incredible perspective on this misunderstood and vast energy source or environmental disaster - depending on your perspective.
