Default Lightfoot on CFRB Radio Sunday

Hi everyone! Just found this on the Wayne Francis site under the 'news' section!

Lightfoot will be joining Greg Godovitz and Bob Reid in studio - and taking calls - for a full hour on Rock Talk on CFRB 1010 radio on Sunday December 16 at 6 PM eastern time. The show will be repeated on Monday December 17 at 1 AM. Listen online at www.cfrb.com.

cfrb is a great station for so many varieties of 'talk' topics..gardening, law/human rights/social topics..
http://www.godobilly.com/welcome.htm Greg G. was a founder of a group I remember from when i was a kid - Fludd and then the hard rock GODDO - which I never cared for. He lived the lifestyle and wrote a book..when Rompin Ronnie says:" Greg has stories that would embarass Caligula" ya gotta know he's lived the sex, dugs, rock and roll life..!!

Thanks for the heads up... Fludd has a Lightfoot connection as well... Fludd is actually the beginnings of the Canadian rock group Saga. Saga's former drummer Steve Negus told me in an email a year ago that he grew up listening to Gord's music at his parent's place in Hamilton.

I tried listening to the station just now and had no luck (and I've got a pretty up to date Dell. I'll try again, but hope it gets posted somewhere.

We are being hit by a major storm here in Toronto and I'd imagine there'd be a chance that Lightfoot wouldn't venture out to drive to the CFRB broadcast location..but he just might! I'll be listening and try to get a call in..

it's CRAZY snowing! and crazy blowing.. I for one am staying inside - except to go out and shovel my walks and driveway later today..

I have mentioned that I HATE winter haven't I??

(30cm is 12 inches)
Last year at this time (the last couple of weeks as well) the weather was very mild and some days only a coat was required - even in the evenings.. The Massey shows period of time was also unseasonably warm last year.
We had summer last so long this year and then it went immediately into winter ...
sheesh!!

I was interviewed by phone on CFRB on The Motts show back in 2001 I believe regarding some school issues/extra curricular activities being withdrawn in local high schools and students being suspended for staging a walk-out in protest-my son being one of them. (we were in a protest march outside the high school at the time I did the interview) Parents formed a coalition and were instrumental in getting the extras back and suspensions dropped after lots of tv/print/radio/meetings with gov.officials/school board etc.)

Char - I heard about your winter storm on the weather and also wondered if Lightfoot would be able to make it to the station. I'll be listening!!

I listened to the station last night and again this morning on line and it seems to be working fine.

compounding the problem of so much snow and wind is that during the night there was a few hours of freezing rain so that's under the snow..traffic cameras on highways etc. show practically nobody out on the roads anywhere. transit systems of buses/streetcars and trains are all running late or not at all and the airport has dozens of cancellations..
I'm sure Gord is out shoveling snow as we speak..
lol

Well, we're shoveling here in central NY: snow, sleet, more snow, more sleet, now some lake effect fluffy stuff, more snow to come before 7 a.m. tomorrow when it's expected to end here. Best approach - go out every three to four inches to shovel it off. If you wait too long, it's too heavy (my arms are still aching from the 6-7" we got last week.) Fortunately it's not enough (yet) that we're wondering where the heck to put the stuff, and there's a warm-up predicted for the end of the week, to the mid-30s. I don't mind the snow; it's the ice I hate. I wiped out twice a few days ago, and have the bruising to show for it.

Here in Moncton, at 2:16 pm not a snowflake yet. But you can tell it's coming.

Char I did watch the Barenaked Ladies last night on Bravo, and will be listening for that GL interview, if he makes it.

I like any temp that is above 40F and if anyone wants to prepare food for me I'm more than willing to eat it!
We just came in from shovelling..We've had 10 - 12 inches since 6 a.m. and it's coming down just as hard a it was at that time..Some drifts were up to 18 inches..Pretty windy at times..Not really cold tho-that's why there's so much snow..if it dropped in temp it would stop..if it went up we'd get rain..
lol
if this is any indication of what the next 4 months will be like I better win a lottery RIGHT NOW!!!

here's a few pics - before, during and after.. (daughter Lisa)

Great job Char. I was just thinking that you were doing as professional a job as the two hosts in speaking with Gord, when they broke in and acknowledged the same.

Just a suggestion - those who feel so inclined, contact the 'Rock Talk' hosts and express your thoughts, excitement, appreciation, etc. Perhaps they could be convinced to have Gord on again sometime in the near future. They have a comments page just for such a purpose below.

and a nice shout out for Wayne's site..I mentioned it as well..
perhaps some audio might be archived..
I looked at pics at the site and now recognize the hosts from last Sunday at Barry's memorial - had no idea who they were tho.. I do remember the group Fludd..mostly cuz I had a friend whose last name was Flood..lol
great to hear Burton..even if he had to wait his turn..lolol

I have to pick up my prize package at CFRB-2 St.Clair at Yonge St. It's 2 blocks north of the EMP office..

Don't know what the prize package is..forgot to ask..oops...

some previous interviews are archived, including Burton..
