Yep, looks like C2C AM will be moving from 640AM Toronto to CFRB 1010 starting 1/1/2018. So what? Well, that means that C2C AM will then be on CFRX 6070kHz AM. So, Coast To Coast AM on shortwave. That would be a welcome addition to the bands.    https://www.coasttocoastam.com/article/new-canadian-affiliates/
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Too bad 6070 kHz has been inaudible on the West Coast for the past two years or more.... But it will be nice to hear it on CFRX if and when propagation ever picks up.

Art didn't care who he put on the show as long as they grabbed listeners and raised his market share. He had a guy on when Clinton and Gore were making a tour of America campaigning in '96 that said Gore was an Illuminoid Vampire and they kept a supply of plasma on board the bus to keep him in check.

I was smoking a cigar on the back porch when I heard that. I started laughing and coughing so loud from that one, lights in neighboring house's came on. I ditched the stick and snuck inside before they could call the law on me.

I don't remember the guy's name but why do want to say his first name might have been Alex?
