    I just don't know where it all began. It's funny because he had no problem trading barbs with me but I got blocked the moment I asked him for legitimate facts why we should trust MB as a fan.

    He can't do it logically so he has to act like a child and create these machinations that aren't there.

    It's funny because my brother in law showed me the Keith Olbermann video where he makes fun of Jack Todd. It was glorious.

    McKenna seems more suited for CJAD.

    They are all more than terrible. Such contrived drivel.

    I didn’t realize anyone still bothered with Todd, he can blow a fuse within seconds.

    Now Keith Olbermann is something else altogether. I miss watching him. Someone give him a show already.

    He sure loves the sound of his own voice.

    Marinaro just now: I like to use spray deodorant. I sweat under the arms and smell. I don't like that. I keep cologne in my car.

    WTF. :laugh:

    And then Marinaro continued about a friend of his who dyes his grey hairs with mascara.

    Ferrar co-hosting with Marinaro is really exposing Marinaro's limited vocabulary.

    I guess Ferrar knows what's good for him and not challenging Marinaro's shortcomings, given that his main gig is on CJAD and only rarely hosts on 690.

    The last 10 minutes were gruesome when Marinaro took the conversation into personal hygiene.

    Ferrar just toying with him now -- he floats out a turd about how Marinaro should run in politics and the latter takes the bait: "I've thought of running at one time, by the way." :laugh:

    Gallo finally getting his pillow gig cut from under him with Dormez Vous offering a competing pillow with a promo code and running a slew of ads on 690. Maybe Gallo won’t be so smug now.

    Is Brian Wilde totally unhinged? I was thinking of making a thread with some screenshots. He blocked me for sending him a private message that read "I know you didn't mean anything given the context but it's inappropriate for a white person to call a black person an "Uncle Tom"". No response just an immediate block, which is odd because we have had polite exchanges before. I think it's just a really bad look for someone who has been accusing everyone of being racist on Twitter for the past couple years

    I find Dreger to be so annoying. If I see his face on my TV, I immediately change channels.

    Only reason to listen to 690 in the dog days of summer are the bumbling amateur replacements that gift you with the most hilarious faux pas.

    Tuned in just now to find out that Gallo is hosting Nilan's time slot and he has Jimmy G as a sidekick.

    So Gallo is just dragging things out, filling the air with small talk. He mentions how much he likes all the shows he's going to be hosting in the next few weeks as the normally-scheduled hosts take vacations. Then he quips about how he's going to flood the station with the sound of his voice or something like that.

    So sidekick Jimmy G tells him how we'll be hearing the "dulcet tones" of Gallo's voice, a comment that Gallo approves enthusiastically.

    Ten minutes or so later, after Gallo has wandered unto yet more bland subject matter, he turns to Jimmy G and says: Sooooo, what's that you had said about my voice, "dulcid" tones?

    Jimmy G answers: No, it's dulcet tones. And then proceeds to spell it out as "D-U-L-C-I-T".

    Idiots. :laugh:

    "Dulcet tones" belong to a legend like a Vin Scully or a Dave Van Horne not the Gallos of this world. Hey Gallo, stick to "dulcid".

    Melnick going on hiatus for a month, as announced yesterday during his show. There’s going to be very little to get you motivated to listen since the afternoon show features the best content normally.

    Yesterday was also Gord Miller’s last segment before heading for Europe. What a great guest — smart, knowledgeable, funny. I hope he becomes a staple and not just a replacement guest. This is exactly what the station needs — an infusion of smarts and worldly experience.

    Simon taking Melnick’s place on the afternoon show doesn’t know the difference between “owed” and “owned”.

    And he sells real estate for a living. :laugh:

    Another amateur moment on 690.

    They have someone do a sportscast who doesn’t identify herself and she can’t complete a sentence.

    She sounds really nervous. One of the news items she was reading off mentioned how Jason Pominville is considering signing with the Habs and has “until July 1st” to make a decision.

    Followed by some dead air.

    Then, there’s a hot mic and she says “Tony’s not here.”

    Followed by more dead air.

    Then a commercial.

    More dead air.

    Then another commercial.

    Beaut.

    Marinaro calling Stu Cowen's Gazette piece on Markov nothing but a sympathy PR stunt and he's been going on and on about it since having Cowen on to discuss the article this morning. Did Markov call Marinaro a few bad names or something in the past since he doesn't seem to have much good to say about Markov.
