Dave Hodge Joins George On The Strombo Show Tonight!

When the new hockey season returns in the Fall of 2014, George will take his seat alongside a long list of greats who sat behind the microphone to host CBC's Hockey Night In Canada.  Since the legendary Foster Hewitt brought Canadian hockey from radio to television, more than a dozen others have followed in his footsteps.  One of those greats was Dave Hodge, who sat in the HNIC seat from 1971 until 1987, hosting 15 Stanley Cup Finals.  Tonight, Dave joins George in the Broom Closet.

Watch as Dave take on The Don in Coach's Corner in this 1986 clip .

As always, there will be The Magnificent Seven, the top seven new tracks of the week,
a Nod To The Gods Of Rock and Roll,

 Ten O'Clock With Tom (Waits),

and lastly, George tucks you into bed for The Big Lie Down, or The Collective Horizontal, with the mellowest of tunes.

You can hear The Strombo Show on CBC Radio 2 on Sunday nights, from 8 to 11 pm. See you there!  ;)
