Hello Roz and Frasier:

Yes, you were "jousty", but that's why we tune in.

Lots of Bixi use in the heart of Montreal on weekends! WOW. Look both directions when you cross the street. Someone is going to get popped.

I enjoy the present format of your show, however it should be based on the time you both have to devote to it. It's a lot to prepare, edit, then air. After all, you are not confined to broadcasting commitments of precise blocks of time. I think it should be flexible. In a given week, if there is a hot topic(s) to address, the show could run an hour or more. Otherwise, you may prefer to do shorts of twenty minutes in length, especially if it is a slow week news-wise. Music is a great filler.

On that note, I really enjoyed the trumpet solo in Misirlou.

Thanks for another enjoyable episode,

Brutus

p.s. Wishing Alyssa an easy and pain free move to Hamilton.

Hey PJs....

I know, I know,... you thought I had fallen off the face of the earth. And I had, metaphorically. Dear God in Heaven, why did I choose this job? I am so fed up and it's a good thing that Summer is upon us or I might just have lost my mind once and for all.

Such good songs this week. Although I always love to be introduced to new music by Alyssa (which is invariably fabulous!), it's nice to hear all these wonderful, catchy, Summery tunes.
That woodblock in "Steal My Sunshine" gets me every time.

That being said, however, I HATE Rod Stewart and "Maggie May" is an unforgivably bad song.

Admission: I snorted water out my nose when TW said that with Communauto he thought you could just break into any car. Classic.

You can use the word "Inhibitor", by the way.

"I deal a lot with nostalgia" sounds like some kind of weird, private-eye business card...What was it we were joking about on the weekend? Casual Tomfoolery? Casual hijinx? Something like that.

Only you could take something like great like swimming and make it sound like, I don't know, eating liver.

I vote for a hipster episode.

Love Koop, by the way.

It's time for bed, yo.
