George? Is That You?

Tune in Monday night to the Ron James show for a Special Strombo guest appearance.  George will be playing fictional character "Ray Connors, renowned Peace Activist", being interviewed by "CCON radio talk show host  Buell Crawford" (Ron James).  Connors has written a book condemning the Chinese Government for human rights violations, and Crawford's searing line of questioning declares that "for someone espousing peace, man .. you sure hate the Chinese!".  Crawford's math calculates that hatred for the Chinese as being directed to "one percent of 1.6 billion people or 1,340,000of them".  The interview is doomed from the start, and Connors finds himself looking for his chance to escape.  Clearly, this is no George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, and the laughs keep coming.  

The segment will run Monday, February 24th, at 9:30 pm as part of the season premiere of the Ron James Show.

Strombo is on this Saturday Feb 22
