Monday Dec 14
It was an interesting week on radio – Drex popped up on Jack FM on Wednesday morning! Wow, I am SUPER impressed with Jack. What a coup. Drex left his talk radio show in the summer and I’m wondering if he already knew then that he was going to Jack. The Jack morning crew got fired mid November and there’s no question Drex was already hired by then – Jody Vance tweeted she had been keeping Drex’s secret about where he’s landing FOR MONTHS! It’s safe to say they had him lined up for the morning show WELL before Charis and the two doofuses were fired.
I creeped Drex’s Twitter feed to see exactly when he left CKNW but my feed only goes back to July so I guess he left before that. It was fun to read his tweets since he left – he’s unapologetically salty! Here’s a tweet throwing shade at Kid:
In other amusing drama, Nat and Drew had their Facebook Live “party” on Saturday at 7:30. I forgot about it until 8:15 and finally tuned in to catch Josh Groban chatting – what a great guy! I stayed for 12 minutes and remembered why I hated watching their Facebook Live “parties” – it’s basically just watching a tv show of them having a party. It’s not actually fun, and anyone saying they had fun is full of it. We comment on anything and everything with absolutely no reaction or interaction, basically just talking to ourselves. So I got annoyed, typed a snarky comment and left:
Turns out, they DID read that message and then sent out a “special hello” to me. BAAAHAHAHAHA! That Joey can be real sarcastic too, though listeners may not have realized he was throwing a jab my way. They claim to read all the messages afterwards but why – they wouldn’t know what the comments were referring to anyway. “Good job, Drew!” for what? Which part? The whole thing is ridiculous but good on them for at least trying to be engaging and fun. No other hosts are bothering.
The Breeze’s Song of the Day contest is over. Hope you won a spa card! Whosie Whatsit on Peak is also over. Winner of $5000 announced at 8am Monday. But JR continues to open presents, CFOX is opening more stockings, and Rock 101 is taking names for the draw on Friday. Zed has more $500 Metrotown gift cards with the Song of the Day.
On a personal note, 50 years ago today my family landed in Canada. Best. Day. Ever. Thank christ my Dad took that job in The Pas Manitoba! If it wasn’t Covid times I’d be throwing a party!!!
