Oh, Phyllis

It took DECADES, but there is finally a Casino in Toronto…and near-by Ajax, and…

In the ‘Falls, of course, there are two;  I had hoped this would suffice…

Gambling -PAM prescriptions and NON time-release MORPHINE;
yeah, we’ve got our priorities right…

and now there’s I-still-cant-believe-it DOUG* FORD
more-than -halving [a GROWING] Toronto Council
and scrapping Drive-Clean…

* Freudian proof that I-still-cant-believe…
and i’m an Jungian!

First, my beloved Al JOYnes:*; [LINK]; https://www.facebook.com/al.joynes

and then, [moments] ago, I’m told that this is ALSO (John) SKOles’ LAST BROADCAST TODAY (AND i FOUND THIS as the ONLY link [same blogger? – thanks, Mike].


THEN ,THE LAST BLOW: no MORE psychedelic Sunday and/or Andy Frost.  Hw was the biggest cheerleader of the new format; ‘Great Hit & Real Classics’,
but now they just play the same songs over and over and over and over

I’ve been meaning to update THIS link since the date I wrote it**: now i don’t know what to do…TORONTONIANS! NIARARA-ites!


* letter to Tammy Cole, Sales…

Firing Al Joynes?
Are you out of your minds?
This was the best 12-hours in your week!

I have becoming increasingly dis-illusioned w/ your ‘new’ format, e.g., REPLAYING songs and /? more contests. Is this FM or AM?

I feel like i did when Barrie’s TV station was sold; what happened to their collection?

This firing may be the final straw; hokey as it can be, GIANT FM plays more like the “Q-107 I was listening to before it was officially on the air.”

** where SKOles was omitted only b/c I wasn’t sure how to spell his surname…
Skoles vs. the grating voice of “KK”?? NO CONTEST!

That’s Spa-DEE-nah – NOT Spa-DIE-nah

Despite the Shuffle Demons fun song (below),
there is NO HARD ‘I’ sound in Ojibwa
[or Obibway, as it was when i was a kid, circa TImagami].

I’m clearing/re-organizing shelves, and this must’ve been enjoyable or I’d not have kept it.

MY cc is [?/now] cream-coloured;
I have used an ‘enhancement tool’ to attempt to replicate the PHOTOGRAPH.
