Todd Shapiro Fired From Dean Blundell Show: What Happened?

radioEdge 102 (or CFNY if you're an old guy like me) has removed all traces of Todd Shapiro from their website. Here's what Dean Blundell had to say:

A lot of you people have been asking about what’s going on with Todd and where he is. I’m sad to say no longer with the show, leaving the morning show team here at the Edge.

I have no idea if Todd Shapiro was fired or whether he left on his own. If he quit, I don't know why. He hasn't tweeted from @iamToddyTickles since July 11.

Jason Barr was fired from the Dean Blundell Show almost three years ago and now co-hosts a morning show on 97.7 HTZ-FM.

If anyone knows what happened to Todd, let me know in the comments. And Todd, if you're interested in an interview to clear the air, contact me.

Finally! He was the douchiest radio-douche who ever douched on the radio.

Maybe I'll actually start listening to the DBS again.

....naw, think I'll stick with Biggs and Barr in the mornings.

Brutal. I may just quit listening. The last week with just Dean and Derek were brutal...

Anyone hear that 'expert' phonecall bit? Totally sounded pre-recorded and just terrible 3 year old humor. They'll prob get traffic girl Adj to co-host.

Bummed but if anyone hears where Todd end up I'd be interested to listen in to him. Good guy.

I just hope that if HTZ picks him up, it doesn't mess with the balance Biggs & Barr have going on right now. Unless he changed his character dramatically, I don't think he would fit in with the tone they've already set.

If Todd was fired, I wonder who fired him. Did Ross do it before he was cut or was this a move by whomever replaced him?

Dean also made mention of a new co-host that would be joining him in the coming weeks, and that the show isn't about any single person anyway. Maybe they can change the name of the show to reflect that a little better.

Dean is an arrogant hypocrite backstabber. He's called Todd one of his closest friends on air in the past. Is this how you treat a friend?? When callers asked him directly (including myself ) where's Todd been the past week, he joked that he's either sick or on vacation somewhere.

A 10 second blurb at the end of yesterday's show to just say todd is no longer part of the DBS is a slap in the face of his listeners and Todd himself.

Pathetic.

July 25, 2013 / 18:52

Max

@Jamie To be fair, that 10 second blurb was more than you'd get at most Toronto stations when someone is fired. He was probably told not to say anything at all.

I don't like his show either, but I don't think that's a fair criticism.

July 25, 2013 / 18:57

There's speculation it was a build up of a lot of things over time including endorsing violence when talking about a fight that broke out at a Remembrance Day service, as well as degrading women.
Whatever it was, they gave him the Martin Streek/Barry Taylor treatment and erased all traces of the guy from the website.

July 25, 2013 / 19:02

Max

@Keith If it really was for endorsing violence, then why wouldn't they fire Dean as well? I'm sure Todd's comments were not any more "out of line" than Blundell's.

I doubt they fired him for any of those reasons, but who knows? We're not even sure if he was fired or just walked away.

July 25, 2013 / 19:06

Anon#2

Is anyone really surprised Todd left? He just turned 40 and being verbally abused on the air almost daily by your co-worker who call you "one of my best friends" is a good reason to find a new job.

I say good luck to Todd and I'm sure he'll land a great gig where he doesn't have to endure juvenile pee-pee and poo-poo humour.

July 25, 2013 / 20:05

It's weird listening to the show now that Todd's gone. It sucks now, I wonder what happened. It's weird that todd has been off twitter for awhile now as well. Wonder if he'll clear the air and tell everyone what happened.

July 25, 2013 / 20:06

Keith

@Max - no idea. I'm just repeating speculation that other resources have reported what might be the cause.

July 25, 2013 / 20:10

Binford

Im betting its the pathetic loners who listen to the show and found something to complain about to the CRTC that is the reason todd is gone. Todd, like him or not kept that show moving , only problem was that there is alot of pathetic people out there who would rather spend hours complaining to the communists at CRTC than simply change the station and go listen to the other generic shows that all copy everything dean n todd do. Todd will be fine and wouldnt be surprised if he went on to tv or another media outlet. Good lucky todd you n dean made my mornings for a long time.

July 25, 2013 / 20:11

Binford

Id be shocked if he was fired by chorus since they have to know the DBS is heavily reliant on todd. It was either the CRTC putting pressure on the edge or deans hissy fitts just became unbareable. Either way, todd had a solid personality and will be fine and wouldnt be surprised to see him get his own show.

July 25, 2013 / 20:15

The DEan Blundell show sucks and Todd Shapiro leaving makes no diffrence.

@Binford The show was heavily reliant on Jason as well, but Corus had no problem cutting him.

July 25, 2013 / 20:23

@max. Yeah it was, barr was easily my fav on the show but todd easily played a bigger role. Jason was fired for showing his junk during sausage fest so there are legal issues there that opened the door to his firing. Guess we'll hear something sooner than later so no real point in speculating for now. He couldnt be doing that bad since every other radio personality copies everything he n dean do, dean without todd i see being boring and annoying

July 25, 2013 / 21:16

I.D.

Dean is a guy who got jobs in radio because of his dad, a sales executive with CHUM, and was hired by CFNY at the last minute from Windsor after Strombo turned them down to replace H+F.

Todd was an H+F hanger on who replaced another guy who was annoyed by Dean's contrived dick jokes and quit after a couple of days.

It's amazing that they lasted this long let alone got paid anything to do it.

July 25, 2013 / 21:21

Fuck yo coutch

Sounds like todd slept with i.d's girl, sounds like alot of hate from a guy who really knows the blundell show well.

July 25, 2013 / 21:37

I.D.

The behind the scenes drama is always more interesting than the public show, as Toronto Mike knows :-)

July 25, 2013 / 21:39

Missy

I remember when Jason was let go and Dean had a few words, "Jason was a great guy", blah, blah, blah, then months later talks about how much he disliked Jason, and bashes him.

Wonder if Todd will get the same treatment?

July 25, 2013 / 22:13

Name Redacted

ID is correct. Dean does have a radio father & one who is the polar opposite of Dean Blundell on air. Dean worked at 89X in Windsor prior to coming to 102.1

July 25, 2013 / 23:07

Wayner

That's too bad. I enjoyed the interplay between Dean, Todd and Derek and before that Dean, Todd and Jason. I hope he moves on to something great.

I stopped listening to the show in December as I couldn’t take their (i.e. Dean’s) fixation with Justin Beiber and the show's increasing reliance on the "call-in" format...it just got tiresome.

I moved over to CBC 2 and just enjoy the music...

July 26, 2013 / 07:19

Randy Walker

I used to listen to DBS religiously and only turned it off when crappy music was played. I listened this week and it was very boring... I found Biggs and Barr lame as shit since day 1... Now I just listen to CDs...

July 26, 2013 / 08:08

Marc

It is very hypocritical for Dean to bash Rob Ford for not answering crack video questions but won't answer of the Todd questions he is getting.
Like him or hate him Todd deserves more than a quick "is no longer with the show"

July 26, 2013 / 08:27

Richard

@Wayner - I agree. The DBS spent and still do, far to much time on bieber. Doing it again today. Now that Todd is gone the show isn't as good. Todd was the funny one of the group which was very evident
when Dean was on vacation and Todd did the show without him!

July 26, 2013 / 08:31

Tim

I have no doubt that Dean is a very hard person to work with. I found the whole frat boy shtick between the two of them tiresome and stale. They had to shake things up a bit. I like Derek but I have no doubt he has no desire to be kissing Deans ass every morning. I say blow the whole thing up ,fire Deano, keep Derek and bring back H&F

Here's a note I received from a Corus insider:

Hey Mike,

Wanted to clarify something with the Todd Shapiro departure from the Dean Blundell Show. I work at Corus, and know people attached to the show.

Todd's being axed was not related to the latest CBSC complaint and punishment. Those happen all the time, part of running a radio business, and people rarely get fired simply because of a complaint like the ones levelled at The Edge.

Apparently Todd & Dean have had many arguments off-air in the past. A few weeks ago, before Todd took a "vacation", he and Dean apparently had quite an explosive argument... no word of what the discussion was about.

Creative differences, I'm guessing.

July 26, 2013 / 11:59

Dong Johnson

Didn't see any pics of Dean at Todd's birthday party on twitter... they probably weren't as close off-air as they eluded to be. They might have been at one point though.

July 26, 2013 / 12:24

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

Another Corus insider:

Here's what happened:

Todd complained about Dean to management. Apparently tired of being treated like a bitch. Corus had a three year deal on the table and pulled it. Dean got rid of Todd same as he did Barr. CRTC bullshit is a smoke screen so dean doesn't look like a home wrecking douche lord. He is the quintessential radio douchebag.

I want to go on record as saying that I've never been a fan of Dean Blundell.

Sage advice dictates that the best way to "protest" against a radio station is to stop listening to it, and that's precisely what I did 4 or so years ago. Dean Blundell is a major reason.

Mind you, I've never been a fan of Todd either (I think Jason Barr could have done a spectacular job running the mornings all by himself), but the fact that Dean uses his perceived position of authority over there to get his way all of the time is nothing short of purile.

Radio is such a different world compared to just a few short years ago, and it's unfortunate.


July 26, 2013 / 13:22

If anyone is on Twitter, Dean is not currently following Todd and Todd is not currently following Dean. I can't say for certain whether they were following each-other before the incident though.

My guess is that we end up with Voodoo as the new co-host. Check him out on Twitter -- back in late June he mentions something about a job interview with 102.1.....

Dean has ruined that station, first jason and now todd, that show could be much better with just jay n todd. Dean wil take a funny joke todd says and just beats the joke to death over and over again. Hope to hear todd on another station hopefully rock, without having to stroke deans ego im sure todd will be pretty good.

I think there might be something in regards to your Corus insider with regard to Todd going to complain to management.

If you read Deans cryptic message below from his twitter account:


" I really like watching people Bite off more than they can chew. Then blame everyone else for letting them do it. #truecolors"

July 26, 2013 / 15:04

A good source

Those who say that Todd complained about Dean are 100% correct
Instead of dealing with anything there solution was to pull the plug on Todd after offering him a 3 year deal

Best way to protest is not Listen and teach Dean he is not a radio god

Some friend Dean was to Todd after saying nothing but nice things about him at his 40th bday
Nothing better than a back stabbing so called friend

July 26, 2013 / 15:54

It was over long ago....

The show got super lame when Dean left his wife. His whole angle on hating his wife and bashing her, then living his wild and care free bachelor days - it was just pathetic. He's like an 18 year old boy who never grew into the mid 40s man he's become.

Did Todd's gf recently have a baby? Maybe Todd was maturing and growing up, not wanting to pigeon hole himself as the goofy sidekick who allows their co-host to treat them like crap on air. I listened to the show for years, since back in the Dean, Jason and Sandra days - when Todd was just an intern. It lost its appeal for me years go.

The morning show is lame, and I agrew with whomever mentioned that Dean is a hypocrite for always shuffing these things under the carpet. The target audience for 102.1 has to be like 20-40 and you know Dean is on the high end (if not completely off) of that scale.

GET RID OF DEAN!

If anyone hears of where Todd ends up, post it. I'd be interested to hear from him without the giant lard Dean by his side.

July 26, 2013 / 16:49

Rob@rob.ca

@AGoodSource

Wouldn't backstabbing also be going to complain to management about your "friend" behind his back?

The Dean Blundell show wont be the same without Todd. Unlike Jason (who I do like), I always felt Todd added a great deal of humour and personalitt to my morning whereas Jason didn't really say all that much (he is much better on Biggs & Barr). I don't know anything about the inner workings of show or what happened. But it is called the Dean Blundell show, if someone who works under Dean was unhappy with their role and talking to Dean didn't work, they should have started shopping for another job or ask their current station if they can move onto another position within the company. I rarely support someone who complains about others at work (unless an employee is hurting the company).

I think beef was right back in the day saying dean was an asshole. In the past 4 years Jason left, Todd left and his wife has left.

toronto mike...the truth...Todd caught some dirt on Dean...after his divorce he experimented, didn't bat for the home team...so to say

@ todd fans - stop listening to the show, see how fast a rating slump will make other changes

When Dean started I wrote a letter to his then boss to complain... they called me and put me on speaker... Dean was in the room... they told me Dean was one of the hardest working guys in radio... They suggested to give him a chance and I would grow to like the show. I did and they were right. There was a time when Todd seemed to work just as hard... I think he got fed up being the bitch and wanted more respect and wanted to do more and Dean saw him as lazy and falling short. If you remember a few months back Todd ran the show one morning when Dean was "sick"... first time in 13 years. He fell flat on his face... showed his weakness... that seemed like the start of this mess... at least the on air part. My guess is Todd blamed Dean for not getting the chance to show himself and said Dean was holding him back from doing more. Dean probably seen Todd as falling short and riding his wave... I bet this has been going downhill for a bit. Who knows... I guess Todd has a point to prove, lets see if someone gives him a chance.

Todd always struck me as a floater who never took advantage of Dean's support.

July 26, 2013 / 17:40

no longer listening

Come to think about it I think the clues have been there all along... I listen everyday almost the whole show each morning. I remember months ago Todd doing bits and Dean saying "When do we get to the funny part" Todd would get upset and one day Dean said something like "You not talking now" after he bitch slapped him... Then Todd said It was funny and Dean was just being a ass... I'm sure Dean is hard to work for and demands a lot.

Look at Meatus... Dean liked him and helped him... I heard he was a hard worker too... not the brightest but tried hard. Lets face it... Todd had Dean to thank for being where he was and I'm sure Dean felt Todd never lived up to the support he gave him... In the end Todd stabbed Dean in the back with a end around... Dean flexed his muscles and bye bye Tickles.... Sad ending to what once was a good friendship... No one wins...

Dean said something no one picked up on... "The show is about you the listener" sounds like spoiled Todd thought the show was about him more and that was Dean's final jab at Tickles... "Oh so good" "You like that" "Ohoooooo" "You like Tickles"

I will miss those days...

July 26, 2013 / 17:57

wow, voodoo would suck as a co-host.

can't believe Dean really is such a prick. definitely wont be continuing to listen but will it really help? doubt it...i'll tune into wherever Todd ends up.

i hope Douchebag Dean's pilot show they're currently filming bombs, wont be tuning in.

One thing... I think the week Adj was on with Dean was a test to see how she did. I also think this week is a bit of a test for Our blind friend... he did okay today.. I also remember a few weeks back when Derrick was "working in another room" May have been Todd asking for a bigger chance to show himself. In the end what Dean and Todd may not realize is they were a great team and the fact they could not work out there differences will bite both of them... Dean looks after his friends who work hard and deserve it... Todd "right or wrong" lost Dean's support and that was the writing on the wall. I bet at Todd's 40th Dean looked at it as Todd's going away party.

Dean... Todd.... if you are reading this I want you to know I liked both of you and there is no right or wrong here... In the end Dean is right... the show is about the listener... Dean... 13 years ago when I wrote that letter I was wrong... you are funny and you proved me wrong. However you did that with Todd's help. If he fell short that was just as much you to blame for it as it was Todd... Please make sure that you don't make the same mistake with the next "bitch" I enjoy listening and right now the show is not doing what it should... "BEING ITS BEST FOR THE LISTENER" I will however stay tuned because unlike the first time I wrote you... I now realize how hard you are willing to try.

Indie 88's audience isn't going to be the Re-Todd scene, sorry man.

All this talk reminds me of reading about Dean before he came to Toronto. Completely unremarkable (guys like Fred and Greg had more going on before coming here) but The Edge wanted a guy who could pretend to be excited about Limp Bizkit and Nickelback and that's what they got.

The assumption that people who worked together at the same radio station at the same time are buddies for life shows you how the radio fantasy is still alive in 2013. You won't find an industry in which people develop more resentment towards their co-workers over time.

As soon as someone is perceived as a threat, all hell breaks loose. It's not like anyone has to actually work for a living when their job is being stupid on the air.

If you want dean gone for the douche bag he than its pretty simple, erase your pre-set from 102.1 and stop listening. There are far better rock stations out there and even the biggs and barr show is pretty good, both guys are likeable and dont have the douche bag attitude dean does. Todd will be fine since it was his personality that carried the show, when i use to listen it was easy to notice that all guests likes todd far better than dean and im guessing dean was threatened by todds popularity and felt like being a 40 year old bully was his only resort.

Im convinced dean by himself made adrian crazier than he was if u listened to way dean would bully him and get him worked up . Might aswell be news talk now cause that station has no personality anymore.

I have a feeling that Adam will be the new sidekick which i hope not for his sake, i met adam a few times and hes a solid cat so dont wanna see him get treated like the rest of deans ego strokers

So sad about Todd!!!!! Derek is a moron, there is so much of Derek on the show you might change the name to 'The Dickhead Derek show'.
I have listened to 102.1 for 35 YEARS and now I'm done! Dean is not that funny without Todd, and Dean needs Todd to rescue him when his arrogant douchness get's out of control. Dean is rarely funny these days and I'm sure his ego had Todd fired...so sad, my mornings will never be the same!!

I.D. : That's why I think it'd be perfect. Todd outgrew the "re-todd" persona some time ago, and I think something like this would be a fresh start that would showcase who he is NOW. You can tell his heart wasn't in the dumbass stuff. Like when he apologized before every "greasypoo" joke. Clearly just doing it because he was told to.

I give the DBS two months tops. With new management in the picture and slumping ratings their going to cancel the show altogether and go into a different direction. It's inevitable. The show has been lackluster and irrelevant for months now.

Well you could here it in Todd's voice and even his laugh was like do I have to laugh at this bullshit?

Dean's is such a hypocrite . Dean really is a fake friend and a real loser who tries to put people down all the time. I'd Love to hear his X-Wifes side she probably tell us about his small penis and how he lasts 30 seconds and thats it. Even Adj you can tell is fake laughing at Deans crap like ya ok whatever you say Dean.

Not a sad thing this happened now Todd as pearl Jam says will be the Better Man

Years ago Shred & Regan, the guys at 103.3 The Edge in Buffalo took to taunting & harassing Blundell. They started calling him Dean Dumbell & mocking him openly on the radio. An especially good bit was when Tim Hortons was almost blown up & they had Dean fleeing in fear. I don't know the details but I still have some old email correspondence with 103.3 about it. They hit him hard.

It really pissed off Blundell. He started slamming the entire city of Buffalo causing a headache for then PD Alan Cross. If the rumours are true as to why Jason Barr & Todd left well it's hard to be be nice to the guy

Dean likes to dish it out but he seems to have trouble taking it.That makes him a diva. He's a male version of Mariah Carey.

Truth is, it should be Dean who feels threatened. Look at the future for Blundell. He's painted himself with a single brush & it's going to be hard to step outside that realm. The realm he lives in (shock jock radio) is mostly centered in rock music & the format is in decline. Isn't that what really happened to Humble & Fred?. As a team they work together very well but their schtick only works in a few select formats. All of those formats are outside of the Toronto market.

The above is why I say Fearless Fred is the true "superstar" of Edge 102. He does rock radio very well but he can step outside of that & be successful. Who knows, perhaps the next morning show host at 102.1 will be Fearless Fred & crew?

And 102.1 faces a grim future. The alt format has let itself get old and stale. It's going to be extra hard to recreate that format especially as most alternative fans have left the radio dial for the greener pastures of internet radio.

Side note: One of the top rated alt rock stations is Sonic 102.9 in Edmonton. For a few books it was actually on top of the market. Give it a listen sometime. The music isn't much different than Edge but the on air personalities are. There is much less of that "let's party with some babes and a case of kokanee".

Johnny b good

I hear that Dean felt so threatened by Todd's growing following that he forced him out as a way to remain the alpha dog. Everyone knows the celeb types gravitate towards Todd in interviews. Dean is a classic "my way or the highway" type ahole. He is exactly the thing that he makes fun of drake and beiber for.....a fake!!

What Johnny b good said is 100% True

fly on the wall

I went some weeks listening and some weeks not. I don't think either of them are all that great but have some moments. All that I know is deans sense of humor is revolved making fun of people. Problem is like comments above is he can dish it and not take it. Having said that any guy that has any balls would tell this guy to go f**k himself pretty fast and I'm surprised Todd lasted this long. Interested to see what happens with Todd because his skin is going to be thick as a whale after dealing with this prick for over a decade. He's going to be a great Co host of someone who has mutual respect and not a daddy got me the job type tool. Fearless Fred for the win. Hey dean your ex wife isn't crazy they are all the same. Your just a fucking asshole that destroyed tour family.

July 27, 2013 / 23:12

mitch

a Fearless Fred morning show is something i could get behind. even better would be to pair him up with Todd, and you got two funny and genuine dudes who might actually elicit some POSITIVITY into the world and still bring humor.

July 28, 2013 / 06:36

I.D.

Dean's name is the one on the show and synonymous with the station. Any abrupt firing of him would cost them money.

Expect the kind of change designed to see if he can either boost ratings with a different style or be phased out more quietly.

Bro Jake from Rock 101 in Vancouver (a Corus station) was put through that and found another job in the meantime on the Team/TSN sports station.

July 28, 2013 / 07:53

Tim

I would like to see somebody who actually cares about music on the show. If right said dead Fred gets anywhere near the morning show that will spell the end fer sure. I think we have two scenarios for the show. Derek and Ash come on and they become a three person team or Dean does an intern search for a new co-host and they have live on air interviews. Either way, I do not think that Dean is the nicest cat in the world but I also think Todd was generally a kiss ass loser who rode Deans coat tails for years.

July 28, 2013 / 09:37

Dan

I've been listening to the show for a while. 8 years give and take. I thought Todd's personality was a good foil for Deans, and Derek adds value with the voice overs and production.

I think, however, in any situation when ego becomes too large, it becomes unmanageable. I think this is the case with Dean. I've heard him on air talking down to others, especially Todd, lately on air, and Dean doesn't have the charisma or self-effacing humor to make it funny.

Dean is only good for the first punch, a gut reaction to something. That's it. The rest of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is BS. Give him 2 minutes and he will talk in circles. (Recent examples, Bieber is terrible and has to be gay, Ford is is a great guy but is terrible but I want him for 4 more years)

The followup punch that Todd provided (providing a reasonable explanation, and a segway into something funny) was a necessary value add. With no one there to really do that its like listening to an old drunk man rant on and on, with no charisma.

Ultimately, in my opinion, Dean needs to go. He's only funny with others, but even that gets trumped by Dean yelling at whoever he doesn't agree with. The show needs someone that can control the guy, including calling him out on his crap, but that can never happen with the current paradigm ("Dean Blundell Show" = Dean as God)

I'm taking a break from the show. And I'm interested in what Todd appears in next. I think the guy has talent, and wish him the best.

@ID

The problems at Rock 101 and CFOX go deeper than Bro Jake though ID. Rock 101 had some terrible ratings for a long time. They were closer to the bottom of the pack than the top. I'm not a classic rock fan but I remember hearing the station for the first time on a repeater near Golden BC. They played classic rock then played Blondie - Hanging on the Telephone. I had no idea what station I was hearing (I was in the middle of the Kootenays) but I was pretty shocked to hear them say Rock 101. The music was all over & classic rock works best with the same 400 songs.

A good announcer is the cherry on the sundae in radio, but the sundae (music) needs to taste good. If it doesn't it doesn't matter who is behind the mic. That's what happened with Bro Jake.

Did anyone hear the other day Dean trying to do "Tweets by ..." I forget who he was trying to be. But the only person that can do those are Todd. Dean was dreadful at it!! Mornings will never be the same. Hopefully we can tune Todd in on another Station. And then tune Dean out. Dean went to far with Todd and Todd finally told him where to shove it. Good for him. Team Todd. Good luck Todd.

This is really too bad. I thought Todd was the only one Dean got along with and now even that was a myth.

July 28, 2013 / 21:15

Jeff Moros

I work at Corus and the basic truth is that Todd and dean had a falling out a few weeks ago, dean claimed that Todd was flirting with his girlfriend, Todd claimed he was just being friendly. A few days past and it got worse. Dean said he'd had enough and he wanted Todd suspended or fired, Todd said he wanted off the morning show and to be given his own show in the evenings. He also claimed to have evidence that dean was into drugs and was having an affair with a well known and respected Toronto business man. In the end dean won because Corus can't afford to lose him. Dean says he's ready to move in and that the show was getting stale anyways. He'd like to have Adam be his new cohost but Corus wants a woman in the seat also Derrick had already had plans to leave the show for a television gig but has now agreed to stay on until September to help produce and cohost the show

July 28, 2013 / 21:48

You have to remember, these radio guys are entertainers. Actors playing a character to a certain extent. Whatever type of entertainment brings in the target audience. The DB show needs both Dean and Todd. They had a unique relationship that worked. It was noticeably awkward when one was missing. I dont see anyone else being able to fill that roll.

July 28, 2013 / 22:23

Mike in Guelph

Wow, hard to tell if what Jeff Moros wrote is true but if even half of it is, wow.
And who would the business man be? Carasco? One of those X-Copper guys?

I would have totally listened to an evening show on the Edge with Todd. Too bad.

July 28, 2013 / 22:37

The "Jeff Moros" thing is obviously a composite of all the above rumours.

The most boring of them are the most likely to be the truth.

#Waa-happened ? I tell you what happened; #Dean is a weak wanna-be alpha male that needs all the attention as a 2yr old. I bet you the main reason Dean had #Todd canned goes back to the time when they did the bit on "find Todd a fiancé" where several prospects would spend the weekend at Todd's place. Dean hated that promo you could here it in his voice while taking little shots at Todd the whole time and having to remind Todd and all the listeners that this is Dean's Show (what a baby) ! The best thing for Todd is to kill them with success and when given the opportunity punch Dean in the mouth with F-u and your juvenile show that lacks current material and focuses on boring suggestive sexual innuendo's !

July 29, 2013 / 01:28

Anyone mention that this may be a contract negotiation?
DBS not on the air this week...might be the end folks...show isn't the same.

July 29, 2013 / 06:47

Jeff Moros

The show had always planned a vacation this week, it's just a coincidence it's happening during all the controversy. And just to be clear, Todd is no longer on the dean blundell show, Corus is still open to working with Todd at a later date. Don't expect him back at the edge though, dean has too much clout. It's an understatement to say everyone at Corus is afraid of him, we had a coworker fired for making a "stern copycat" comment and producer danni was also fired for the same reason

July 29, 2013 / 09:35

Mike

Wow. Sounds like an ass. He's not even that funny. It was the show that was funny

July 29, 2013 / 09:49

Sarah J

I think Dean's ego got in the way on this one. If the show is for the people, like he says, then one look at this board would tell him that the people want Todd!! Of course, that is just something he says to placate. Its his show, as he likes to remind people, and its his way or the highway. Too bad his way sucks without Todd. You are only as good as the people you work with. Without Todd, he is going to sink faster than the Titanic.

July 29, 2013 / 14:15

John Smith

I was told by someone in the industry, Dean and Todd had a falling out, Todd asked for more money as he made substantially less than Dean, Corus told him will get back to you but then let him go.

July 29, 2013 / 16:18

I believe Jeff. I hope the show tanks and Corus gets a new morning host. I'm not against the edge but I won't listen anymore to Dean. Good riddance!

July 29, 2013 / 17:36

Carl

Did anyone else notice their old friend from Jackass wished them luck on the tv show and that he heard there were cameras in studio, even though he was only on the phone? The host seemed surprised and asked him how he heard that. That was the first Monday without a certain co-host. Also there were other little quips about cameras in the studio. Possibly a TV rights disagreement? Co-host tried to hold out, and instead was axed? Could explain the host's tweet about people biting off more than they can chew. All speculation though from someone that has to find a new morning show to stream.

88.1 is playing non stop rick ashtley and that is far more entertaining than the blundell show minus Todd. Todd and the calls to Adrian were the only reasons i listened to the edge, dean is not funny and his attempt at humour is annoying. Hes a middle aged cat who thinks hes still in a frat. Ironic that he hates the comparisons to stern yet hes known by most people as the poor mans howerd stern and he knows he tries to be just like him

July 29, 2013 / 22:26

Kayla

Poor mans howerd stern? Ahahahaha. I always thought the exact same thing. I remember sausage fest 2 years ago, dean would get some attention from people but todd had 3x as much, every girl was only talking to todd and i felt bad for dean cause no one was talking to him. Todd is easily the one on the show that people actually flook too, yep, its deans name on the show but its dead without Todd. Give it a year and itll be over

I predict that Todd will be back on the air come tomorrow with the launch of the new indie88 station in Toronto. That explains why no info out of the edge. They're worried about the many listeners that will be tuning into a new station. Everything has been kept pretty quiet until noon tomorrow.
Maybe I'm wrong, time will tell.

Id love to see todds show mop the floor with deans show. I have no doubt todd has the ability to get better guests. I just really hope its a rock station with good indie rock since canada has amazing rock talent like reignwolf that we dont hear on edge cause they rather play nickleback, uss, and daft punk 20 times a day. If todds actually gonna be on 88.1 i aee the end of DBS within a year

@Bodge - she actually kinda did. Here's her birthday tweet to Todd: "happy birthday for gemini its all about money and new ways of making money and new business opportunities after june 25th." So i guess she did call it...in a way.

July 30, 2013 / 12:17

Nick

I'm sad to hear about Todd leaving and I wish him all the best. It would be great to hear him on the radio again.

I wonder if my declining interest in the DBS has more to do with censorship than anyone's personality. It would be hard to deliver an entertaining show when you can't speak freely and you're being muzzled by your management because of CRTC complaints. I wish the radical minority who feel compelled to file a complaint would simply not listen to the show if they found it offensive.

I'm excited about this new indie station. I'm looking forward to discovering some new music. Lately it seems like the CBC has profiled more interesting artists than what's been on the edge.

July 30, 2013 / 12:26

no longer listening

"Todd on the street" tomorrow morning in front of the edge at 8:11 asking people "What Happened" on Indie 88... Or "Todd on the Street" at Edgefest asking people if they will miss him on the edge. I could see Todd in the crowd at Edgefest asking funny questions... In yer face Radio and a morning show war to get things started on the first day.

July 30, 2013 / 12:26

Tune in tomorrow

I can say for sure 100% todd wont be here tomorrow with 88.1, thats not to say he wont come on board later but just dont wanna get peoples hopes up. Tge station has been planned for awhile now and todd just left 102.1 last week so wouldnt give us much time to get him settled in. I can say he would be an asset here and as a radio insider i will say that most guests and other personalities cant stand dean and 90% of the guests that you heard on the edge only appeared because of tight friendships with todd, i know from interviewing a few local athletes that they loved hanging around with todd but dean make things awkward almost always and its why they dont call in anymore or pick up the call. However i hope everyone tunes into 88.1 tomorrow for a true indie station and lets let todd know we want him back on the sir asap

Daver

I have to listening to Dean is like listening to a train wreck. What kind of man disrespects his ex-wife on radio like that? Seriously - his kids could listen to that garbage some day.
I also like how he tries to play "smart", when he throws out malapropisms that make most people with a post-Grade8 vocabulary wince. And his obsession with Beiber and that Adrian fellow are beyond comprehension.
The show is way too negative with him on it. They got rid of Jason and Todd who were both great and they left the dunce in the room. Derek is the only saving grace now but he is more clever on focussed produced bits.
Anyways - I listen to Biggs and Barr a lot now and only really liked Derek and Todd's bits.
Think this show has is toast and thanks goodness.
Stern wannabe. On that point remember when Blundell got all offended with a caller awhile back who accused him of that? He didn't let the guy make his point and abused him like crazy.
I think most sensible people agreed with the caller.

I doubt dean will show up at Edge fest tomorrow, He doesn't want to face all the "where is todd" "bring back todd" chants from the crowd

It would be cool if todd showed up just to say one last goodbye to the fans, but I hear that Todd is being quite now while his lawyers settle all the copyright issues with the show and himself. the same thing happend when Jason was fired, he took the Ballsac song with him

July 30, 2013 / 19:35

This was a great read

Dean's probably not sleeping too soundly this week.

Good luck Todd, as everyone had said here, would love to hear you again. Somewhere fresh and new, in a less negative enviromment

Denver

I would tune out when dean starting talking too much just outta annoyence, now that itll be all dean all the time doubt ill ever switch over from 97.7 to 102.1 again and will prob jus listen to the commercials on 97.7 rather than hear the middle aged bully picking on beiber or ford. Like mentioned above, dean is just way to negative about everything where biggs an barr are always in a good mood and far more posative.

BIGGS AND BARR 97.7. TUNE IN FOLKS way better than dean blundell

July 30, 2013 / 22:12

Maybe Todd told them to suck it and left on his own...he surely had to be getting sick of the Dean's negativity...Dean was getting a little too much to take at times for us the listeners...can't imagine how Todd put up with it this long....
We are all waiting to see where Todd will surface and we will tune in cause he is one funny motha sucka!!!

July 30, 2013 / 22:24

Dave Winger

Unfortunatly doubt well hear from todd for a few months like we saw with derek. Doubt he'll land at 88.1 since its sounding like a top 40 station from what ive heard, but would love to see him join 97.7 to follow the biggs and bar show with his own show or even join them.

It really isn't hard to not listen to BDS. He is obnoxious which is part of the schtick I know but without Todd, the show is boring. Adj doesn't cut it either. App removed from phone. Good bye asshole. The only reason I ever listened was because of Todd. And ya, if you want Ford to fess up, how about you???? Hypocrite.

So a little birdie told me that Todds contract was up, he didn't renew it because he is in fact going to a new radio station , what station, , not sure.. apparently not until end of summer bc he does have legal stuff to settle (copyright stuff) .. is it a coincidence that Alan Cross is the new man at 88.1 ?? .. maybe the writing is on the wall ,, or maybe its all just a coincidence. . Ill be keeping a close ear on 88.1 .. wherever you are Todd, you're the reason why toronto tuned into the dbs .. hope to hear from you soon!

July 30, 2013 / 23:47

BardOnTheBeachTO

Ended up here from a Google search, because I'm just another morning listener, grateful for real music and any reason to laugh at the ridiculous. I was just sorta wondering why Todd's vacation was so damn long? (I missed the 10-second explanation, obviously)
Never heard of Biggs and Barr. But I will check them out now.
And Todd, no matter what happened or why the reason, I've been listening to the guy for years now, of course I'll give it a listen wherever he ends up. I never forgot this - during the Stanley Cup playoffs a Boston fan punched a female Leafs fan in the stands, and Dean was incensed, calling the act `masochistic.`` I remember thinking that Todd must have known he meant misogynist(ic) but he said nothing. No-one said anything. It was weird, but in light of the above, unfortunately I kind of get it.
As for 102.1 - just putting in my vote: Adwoa Nsiah-Yeboah is wickedly funny, unbelievably smart, sticks by her guns without being a douche-baguette, never takes it all too seriously (yet knows when it's really serious and all jokes aside) and always, always, ALWAYS supports the other guy. The week she was a fill-in co-host a few months ago was absolutely hysterical. I never changed stations when she was on.
After reading all these comments, I don't know if Dean even deserves her. I know arrogance is part of his shtick, but if it's not just a part of an act it takes all the fun out of his commentary on the Biebers, the Fords and the Entitled. Hypocrisy - not as funny.
If Corus wants to go a 'new direction' and have a hope at surviving Sirius, the on-line radio world, etc., my gut tells me she's the one. For whatever reason, she brings out the best in Dean - and I don't mean the kindest. Just...the better.
Thanks for the forum TOMike.

AngryGreek

This was a great read. I've been listening to CFNY for well over 20 years. I always laugh when they call it 'The Edge' and some lame-ass nearly dance tune comes on the air. It hasn't been edgy in a long, long time.

That aside, I did still enjoy the morning show. Dean is ok, for what he is. As many have said though, he's no good on his own and needs a very quick thinking partner to make up for his shortcomings. That was Todd, funny, a little edgy, but not an asshole who was pissed off at the world. Dean is one of the most negative guys I've ever heard in my life, and my name is The AngryGreek! I think personally that Dean will be hard pressed to find another host that will play off of him as well as Todd did. Todd, on the other hand, will do just as well (if not better) on his own.

Would I like Todd to come back and host the morning show? Nope, I would much rather have Fearless Fred hosting it. Fred makes me laugh, and keeps me engaged. Good Idea / Bad Idea always puts a smile on my face. He's funny, and intellectual, and nerdy, and childish and a whole slew of things that just about anyone can identify with. The Edge would be VERY smart to overhaul their lineup and throw Fred on in the mornings. Just my (angry) two cents.

July 31, 2013 / 01:21

Stephen from Kitchener

I used to have a sharper ear tuned to Edge news when it came across this blog. I only recently found this article and the entry about Winters’ firing. Truth is I just don’t care anymore as anything I used to like about the station is gone. I used to love the Edge during the period I listened, and I liked the DBS. However, I suppose I started to grow out of their show after a while. And after listening to the Jocktober segment on Opie & Anthony it really opened my eyes to the horrors of local market morning show radio. It’s all so douchey and terrible with shitty bits and jocks trying so hard to be funny and unique. Maybe at one time local morning radio was a big deal, but with the internet and the global scale it has, who cares about what local radio has to offer anymore? I haven’t listened to the DBS since late 2010/early 2011.

Look at how much has changed with the Edge/CFNY over the last ten years. I don’t need to rehash the details, the readers here know all too well. There is basically nothing left from what made 102.1 remotely listenable. Ross Winters getting fired is all well and good, but the damage he caused is already done. The DBS has been on the air since what, 2001? Twelve years is a pretty respectable run in local market hokey morning show radio at one station. I believe H&F also lasted as long (1989-2001). However with these recent events, the rumors, Todd’s leaving, it feels as if this cycle of CFNY morning show is almost over. Plus these guys are getting older and still doing the same shtick from when they were in their 30s. And as everyone knows, if you get too old in a station that has a younger demo that usually means the boot. Maybe it wasn’t always like that but it seems that way in radio today. Also, nice to see the tradition of just erasing a person’s existence from their employer’s website still continues. No matter if you worked there five or twenty five years, the corporate suits with wallets bigger than yours don’t give two shits.

I can’t even be bothered to turn on the radio anymore for short trips when I don’t have my mp3 player handy. I just can’t take the bad on-air talent and content, the fakeness/safeness, the repetitiveness; everything that makes radio such a prehistoric thing in 2013. If I don’t have my own music collection, or a downloaded satellite radio show or podcast on me, I just drive listening to the sounds of the traffic and my motor. I’d rather not listen to anything than have to listen to bad (terrestrial) radio.

Who knows where Todd will land, regardless on his feet. Dean on the other hand as "Stephen from Kitchener" put it that they are getting to old for their Demographic. Well if you look at Dean Twitter feed, someone asked if they will be coming back, and deans response was "huge. Bigger. Better. Fresher. And on the old TV.......boosh. #aug12."

ON THE TV!?!?...So he is going to cut people down and Bully people on TV now. Another Marilyn Dennis type show (whom he has made fun of again, numerous times??)

DBS has been going downhill fast for quite some time now. Dean thinks he's a god, but really he is the most unfunny person on the show who calls himself original but spouts out the same crop jokes over and over. The show focuses so much on ford and Bieber for a simple lack of content. Todd and Jason were both asses but it was the dynamic of all three that made the show great in its time. Too bad deans ego gets in the way everything. Derek is a genius but as another person noted, his specialty is prerecorded planned sets.

The edge itself it also going down quick. The music is getting worse and worse as well as the on air personalities. Greg beharell is a joke, can't stand him, I miss bookie.

I have a suspicion that Todd may end up at Y108, another Corus station. I tuned in for the first time this week and the morning show announced the leaving of someone named kerry and that his replacement will be announced 'in the coming weeks' and that it will be very exciting. Perhaps they're swapping personalities between station to keep baby dean happy.

No matter I'm done with the edge and it's off my presets in the car. Maybe if they can bring in a new morning show with some fresh content, I'll tune back in.

Corus : drop dean blundell the guy is a joke! Adam deserves more recognition than he gets. Adam is awesome

Dean is terrible, I haven't listened to the dbs since '08.
Power happy, immature, loser! I'd rather pay for radio than listen to dean for free. Keep your head up Todd, dean is on a downward slide!

Hey Todd, come to Vancouver! The radio stations suck out here, we need you to spice things up!

Thanks for the info radio folk, good to finally get down to the truth!
Deaner is a pole smoker, Awesome!!

Ya know, I tried to get in to that Indie 88.1 thing, but man, they need to buy another record. I figured Alan Cross could have lent them some music. I understand he has more CD's, etc than I do.

This All-Astley, All-The-time is too much.

Bring in todd

I have been listening to DBS for 8 years an was also a regular guest on the show. Todd could be the coolest guy you'll ever meet. He's as real as it gets and doesn't bullshit you. Dean on the other hand is a complete flake, I can't even count how many times the guy contradicts himself on a daily basis. I remember calling in and before we'd go on the air he would tell me what to say. If you went "off script" , he would hit the delay or hang up while he was talking.

Ever since the show got in trouble with the female audience and shifted their attention to pleasing the ladies it was never the same. My problem with Blundell is he is always preaching about standing up for yourself and your opinions, yet everytime he gets in trouble he apologizes and revokes his opinion.

July 31, 2013 / 12:33

no longer listening

If you read my comments I have a different take on things compared to some of you. I think it's safe to say that most of the insider stuff is true. Dean and Todd had a falling out and Todd will resurface someplace.

After having time to reflect I think Dean is here to stay for a bit... I see this as his last chance to re-package himself for the show to survive. He will have a new boss to win over who will be willing to pull the trigger if he has the mandate. Dean will have to retool and bring a fresh approach. The smart thing to do would be to surround himself with talent. I just don't think his ego will allow for that. If he goes back to his old ways this will be a disaster. The show was bad, this is his last chance or ratings will suffer and sponsors will leave to stations like Indie88... I'm listening right now... He needs to go back to when he was the "hardest working guy in radio" as he once was described to me by his boss. Again I think his ego will get in the way. I run my own biz and no matter how much success I have I always come to work in the morning thinking I have to work harder to prove myself. Dean became complacent and if he does not change he will fail. I think there have been some great responses and observations on this blog and the guy who said that it was shameful how he treated his ex on the radio for his kids to hear was bang on. Says a lot about the type of person he is. No matter what she is like you never run the other person down on a wide stage like this for your kids and there friends to hear. He has damaged those kids for life and regardless of how bad she has been he is a hypocrite to tell guys who call in to look after there kids and man up then turn around and run his wife down. Says a lot about the kind of guy he is... no respect... just the same as how he talks to guests and staff.

Remember how he use to run Josie down on air... Just the other day he said he could tell Liz was in for Josie because she smelled better... LOL! Cheap shot of a co-worker for sure. I remember when Josie went to the boss and complained about him. I'm sure behind the mic there have been lots of problems.

I hope Dean can come to terms with his personal life and show the talent he once had. He had chemistry with Todd in the early years and that is hard to find. I worry Dean will try to demand it rather than earn it. That in the end will be his demise from radio... Hell if not for Fred I would never listen again.

Lou

I was a guest on the edge most may know me, i loved talking to todd in the studio and over the phone, like chris said, todd was as real as it gets and dean was like the spoiled child that threw hissy fitts every time someone elae got attention. The edge owns my radio name so i cant disclose that but my real name is lou so u can figure it out. Deans always hated the attention todd got and every friend i introduced to them both were all fans of dean and todd and after meeting them loved todd alot more and actually not only did they not like dean but all hated him and his arrogant personality.
Good luck tickles and u better call me from your next gig

@ Lou: It would seem that Dean see's it as he decided not to have you back. Much like Gay jeff. I'm not saying you are lying, just how Dean frames it.

July 31, 2013 / 14:30

Jack

It seems like dean doesnt want anyone back, edwardo, gay jeff, lou, adrian, kevin smith, brett lawrie, jp arencibia and the list goes on. Its hilarious when dean tries over and over to get adrian and he doesnt pick up and when he eventually does he litterally begs him to talk, kinda pathetic. Theres always deans side than the other side which is more often than not the truth. Think about what guests dean actually has that are regulars? Physic nikki cause she promotoes her witch craft to death on it and vudoo who makes up stories to promote himself. Its the same guy who claims her selpt with lohan and she denies it and said last week that he was hired by brad pitt to fuck anniston while brad watched when they were together and they paud him $20k to do it, u kidding me? Most guys would give an arm and leg to sleep with her so doubt brad needs to pay for it. Either the guy is so full of shit or hes the dumbest business man around cause who would hire him after he talks about every girl hes appearently been with, a half smart guy couldda made millions putting his fake orgys in a book. Only goes to show you guests dean gets

protest the hero....

is dean at edgefest???????????

July 31, 2013 / 16:48

dundten

Allow me to play Devils advocate here. I'm sad about losing Todd too but...

Those saying they are "never listening again" are the same ones that said it when Jason got fired and guess what they not only continued to listen nut they forgot Jason all together and few followed him

88.1 is not the second coming of radio like some are saying, the station Has one of the worst signals in toronto (seriously put it on your car stereo and drive around, Too much static and interference from other stations) plus they seem to be a station that will thrive on "hipster" indie stuff, nothing wrong with that music but most seem to bash the edge for playing that stuff latley

Dean and Todd had great chemistry, but Dean also has chemistry with others, Adj Is the worst thing to happen to Radio but i'll admit to laughing at Deans banter with her (although i wish she would learn to not be a retard...Shes like a black Marylin Dennis, just devoid of a talent or a soul) Derrick seems to be Deans best foil, Dean seems to be afraid to belittle derrick (probably because he knows derrick will always outwit him) I also think Dean and Adam worked together well back in the weeks after Jason was let go

Todd was a great sidekick but face it, he's a terrible DJ and Host, His mornings where he took the lead chair from Dean were awkward, he had no rythem and he certainley couldn't pull his weight. The man has talent but it's as a sidekick or a field reporter, not as a lead.

In the end, It sucks that Todd is gone and who knows where the show will go from here, but Fact is that TOdd will pop up elsewhere and very few will follow him permenently Dean will continue the show and gain new fans. and 88.1 will Fail within a year and all the hipsters can complain that OMG it was the best thing Ev4R

July 31, 2013 / 16:55

Todds better

Lets no forget that hypnotist thats on all the time, hes an amazing guest if u like hearing the same thing over and over again, it was funny the first 100 times than died down the last 2000 times. I always got a laugh outta gay jeff, adrian, and mostly todd. Deans guests disappear and dont come back. Dean degrades womsn far worse than any other radio guy so he and voodoo will make a great show for guys who hate woman or anything decent in life. So happy todd is gone so he can be himself on another station noe

July 31, 2013 / 17:33

Jeff

@dundten, i dont know about you but ive been flipping over from 88.1 and fan590 and i gotta admit im liking the music so far, its alot like the edge minus the nickleback and coldplay with the addition of good indie, curious what theyll do with a morning show but ive got faith in allan cross to deliver a good product. With regards to the blundell show, ive found that show lame and boring for awhile now got rid of the 102.1 preset all together after deans constent rantings on ford an beiber, it felt like it was on replay with the same dumb ford voice over and over again, hes attempt to be howard stern is pretty bad yet he gets his panties in a bunch when he gets called the poor mans stern. I did like todd and loved adam when he covered for them while on holidays. Id love to see todd and adam together weather on 88.1 or the edge or whatever station, id tune in if dean wasnt involved. Just my 2 cents

Anonymous

dundten... you said what I was thinking but I'm not sure it's the same this time... see it's not the fact Todd left that is the problem. It's Dean... you can only cut off so many listeners and cheap shot the people who pay the bill's for so long and the listener gets fed up. I agree that Todd was a train wreck when he was on his own. There is a pattern showing up here that puts Dean in a bad spot. Once people turn on him that will be the end of it. DBS will be fine till something better comes along. Then look out... No one listens to the Edge for the music, they don't listen because Dean is great... they listen because there is no other option... If Todd was on another station with someone he clicked with standing at Union Station in a Depends doing "What Happened" I would be gone and never coming back. Regardless of what they played. Dean's ego is greater than the sum of the parts and I think it's ironic that he made that statement about the show being about the listener because all I here is a show about Dean and how much he hates women who don't do what there told. People will continue to listen till there is a better option... then we will see if Dean is as good as he thinks he is.

Well said no longer listening, i was thinking the same thing, people tune into the dbs show litterally cause there isnt much else, it gives u traffic, and small portions of news and sports. I like biggs snd barr but thats far more music than talk where the blundell show gives todays biggest news bits and other relevant info, too bad i have to listen to blundells voice to get that. Hoping todd gets a morning show to compete with dbs. If only there was a news station with hosts that had personalities. Todd always had a solid chemistry with guests weather the homeless or the famous, his personality always got the best out of people so i have no doubt he will be back on out radios in a couple months

I wasn't at Edgefest- But according to Dean's twitter he had yet to arrive and would 'be there in 5' as of 6pm or so.

Gay Jeff was always a fun guest, Dean phased him out because He was trying to cover up his affair with a well known toronto Business man he met through Jeff. All of us at the station had figured Dean and this gentleman were more then friends, but few of us cared. Dean Was going through a divorce and he could date who ever he wanted, But dean did not want the news getting out because he felt it would make him look weak. Jeff made a subtle comment on one of his last episodes about dean and this gentleman. Dean Used the delay to erase it and during the commercial break exploded on Jeff, It was a few days later that They said Jeff would no longer be able to do the show. I was there when todd threatened to break the news, but i think that was just said in the heat of the moment. But Dean needs to just admit it because it can only stay a secret for so long

July 31, 2013 / 20:36

CumDumpster

Todd was terrible, and despite how "cool of a guy" he was in person, it didn't makeup for the fact that he was unfunny and terrible at interviews. He doesn't follow sports, and while it's obvious for 90% of the year, it becomes painfully obvious when he's doing interviews.

The show is old and stale and I'm sure Dean has a big ego and is two-faced in real life, But everyone that says they "won't be tuning in ever again" is lying. Really? Todd was the tipping point for you? It wasn't hearing Nirvana 80 times a day, or wasn't when the morning show turned into a listener call-in for 4 outta 5 hours?

At least half of the verbal fellatio comments above must've been written by Todd and his family, because there cannot possibly be that many retards in real life.

Its a shame that Todd has gone but all good things must end. Everyone thought it was the end of DBS when Barr left, but it still thrived. Todd will surely land on his feet somewhere. Even if some suggest he doesn't have the talent to succeed on his own, his popularity alone should carry him to a new gig.

I sure hope its not Voodoo as his new sidekick. That guy is so full of crap its not funny. Someone on another site said it might be Adjwa coming in to co-host. Some one claiming to be a Corus employee said it was going to be a different co-host each day rotating through a bunch of people -)Adjwa, Voodoo, Hypnotist Dave, Derek, and Kerry of Y108. I don't think Adjwa is good. In small doses and small banter yes, but not all the time. Voodoo (see thoughts above). Dave - I think he is an awesome guest but cant see him co-hosting (although he said once, he worked in radio a long time ago). Derek - I think he could do it after some tweaking. Kerry - Lots of radio experience, fun person. Her style is polar opposite of Dean. I think the best candidates are Dave and Kerry being first choice.

The last dinosour

I work with deans ex wife and actually met him a few years ago when they were still married. I asked her if she knew anything about Todd getting fired and she said she hadn't spoken to dean about it but that he never liked Todd. Dean makes just over 350 k a year and Todd was only making 40. She said Todd was supposed to be let go when Jason was but Corus convinced dean to keep Todd as it would have cost them too much to terminate his contract

July 31, 2013 / 22:10

Really

@cumdumpster, holly shit u nailed it, todd has spent a full week in this blog writting how much he loves himself and his 49,000 twitter followers are all his family and made up alias. Good job sherlock on cracking that one. Todd if you read this blog, wanna say goodluck and hope to hear u on fm soon and youvin my opinion were the one that made that show laughable in a good way, deans sense of humour is brutal and he needed someone like you to transition into the jokes cause only talent dean has is bullying and degrading woman

Not a chance in hell todd was making 40k. See his condo? He had a porsche at one point as well. I'd assume dean would be in the 150-180 range and todd in the 80-90 range.

Why doesn't the edge play that imagine dragons song "Demon" more? 8 times an hour is just not enough

August 1, 2013 / 04:54

Money man

People you think dean was only making $180k and Todd only $80??? Haha. Top morning shows would are paid a lot more! Try $600k for Dean and $250k+ for Todd. But I doubt money was the reason Todd left. As for Dean the hypocrite, why not "man up" as you have said about other people so many times and address why Todd is gone. Wow you called out Fordsy everyday for a month and yet you are doing the same thing.....double standards I guess. At least Stern speaks his mind and doesn't hold back or hide on any issue. Glad lesbian Lou gave some insight into what a lot of thought was the truth all along. Starting to realize why your exwife wanted out. Your worse than Bieber cause your 40!!

@ Lou - Always enjoyed your segments and many segments they had like yours on the show just bringing in real people to talk. They don't do that anymore which is why it is getting to the same old same old.

I dropped dean from my twitter and dropped 102.1 from my preset with 88.1 now, loving this music. Solid balance of old, new, alt rock and indie bands. This is the station ive been waiting for. Hope alllan cross can produce a decent moring show and itll wipe the edge right out.
Good job 88.1 and please please please Play some canadian indie like reignwolf , for those who dont know him yet youtube his stuff, the cat is talented. Id say he sounds somewhere between sheepdogs and black keys.

I miss Toddy Tickles! The Morning show was perfect with Dean Todd and Derek! I wish Derek would come on more often. I can't believe Todd is gone. I think they should bring him back he added a great sense of humor to the whole program. the DBS is amazing and makes my mornings. I hope they can find a great replacement for Todd, but I think it will be hard.

I agree that Dean is being a bit hypocrite by calling Fordsy out for avoiding the truth, mean while he wont tell us the real reason Todd is gone.

He claimed on his show that gays are gross but now he's one of them? I hope he just comes out, there's nothing wrong with being gay, I'm married to a woman but I've given oral to a man before.

J.P

Used to listen to DBS up until about 2 yrs ago when I got a new car with Sirius. Started listening to Howard Stern again and never looked back. Most morning shows pale by comparison and Dean like many 'shock jocks' tries to copy Howard but fails miserably. Also Howard has evolved and while he still has the odd porn star on he interviews a lot of A list stars and does a great job doing it too.

August 2, 2013 / 12:07

heres hoping

I am keeping my fingers crossed until August 12th. Dean has hash tagged that date on twitter and talked about a tv show. I would be pleasantly surprised if Todd was the host of a tv show... I'm intrigued about the idea ( you'd think it would have to be more than just the broadcast room on tv). this is all baseless, mind you.

My kids go to the same school that Deans kids go to, they often show up with bruises and talk about Daddy's dark times. Dean came to a PTA meeting once and he was very rude, he drank an extra cup of coffee and wouldn't shake anyone's hands, he also got really mad that people inquired abiut the brusises saying his kids fell down alot and that his wife (at the time) liked to tech them life lessons. Dean seemed to have a sadness behind his eyes, I think he is a very haunted person under the laughs.

If the show is about the people....

The people have spoken. I have been really listening to Dean lately and it's so true his jokes are very repetitive and extremely unoriginal. He isn't charming and really only talks about penis and sometimes vagina. Which I like but the context is so wrong. He will make the most unfunny jokes (listen to podcast July 11, to see some real good recent examples) Dean your ego has ruined my mornings for the last time. You just lost the heart of the show, you are the voice and Derek is the current brain. You treat coworkers like shit "Nicole your a call screener" no that want his point he was trying to get her to be quite. Bottom line, DBS I'm done with you, Todd check your chin up, it's unfortunate a guy who rode his dads coat tails into a morning show host spot, has this little talent and this much leverage. Rest assured he will get his one day.

I'm just outside toronto, so i dont get it on FM. but i have internet. I went to the site, and i CAN'T BELIEVE how much BETTER IT IS!!!!!! and The LEGENDARY ALAN CROSS is featured there!!!

And the Website is wayyyyy better too!!
I am no longer an edge fan... The Music has sucked REALLY REALLY hard.
INDIE 88, Hire Todd Shapiro!!!

Indie 88 is not all that you guys have hyped it. It's alot of Hispter crap that makes me want to drive my car into a tree. Yes they play some good music but so does chum FM or virgin but you'll never catch me listening to those lame stations. The edge is still a good station, they have stepped a bit out of their theme and have started playing more upbeat pop music, but it's not so bad, I'd rather turn on the radio and sing and dance to Daft punk then to cry and cut myself to city and colour.

This blog seems to have run it's course. Too much BS now, probably from the same person.
Todd will be fine, he'll get a new job. Dean will make another attempt to maintain his fan base by revamping the show. But unfortunately I predict his morning show will end in about a year's time. As good as it once was people are just ready for a change.

Good luck to them both!!

i agree the show has seen its best days come and go. Its time for a change. something that fits with the other changes at t he Edge. Fred rocks and Josie works for the office crowd... now we need a new face in the morning.

the Edge should find a female who can carry a show herself. someone sexy and bring Todd back as the bitch. Put the Edge back in the Edge... Sexy confident female who works for all listeners... then see the ratings sore. I think the problem is there is no one who could do the job.

August 5, 2013 / 11:21

no females

No females, women just aren't funny and they bring too much drama. They just want to swoon over reality TV and talk about boring stuff that no one asked to hear. They belong in the kitchen or making babies not in entertainment

I have a source at Corus and he says dean is gone, he walked away in the middle of last week. Edge will run best ofs this week then I've been told Fred and Adam are taking over the morning slot next Monday. Derek and adj will remain with the show in the same roles. Dean apparently has a tv gig lined up

August 6, 2013 / 09:43

Just to add. Dean is still part of the Corus family he just doesn't want to do the morning show anymore. He'll still be a face of the edge as well as his tv hig

August 6, 2013 / 09:55

Shawn Leibner

TV gig? Oh please. In his 13 years in radio he hasn't made any waves other than to piss off a whole lot of people. Who's going to want to watch this fool on tv now?

If he was smart he'd take his ugly ass mug off the radio and tv altogether.

The DBS is the number one radio show in Toronto, hundreds of people show up to live shows and thousands try to get tickets.... Yeah but I'm sure no one would watch him on tv

Get a life buddy, despite your thoughts, dean is still very popular

August 6, 2013 / 13:08

Not so fast

Radio vs tv is a totaly different game not to mention the most important part which is demographics. Deans show did well because there was litterally limited conpetition for morning showd to those who are in their cars between the hours of 6-10am, tv has far more options and not to mention the pvr aspect which means we can watch anything anytime, highly doubt deans radio audience will care about his tv gig and it will be cancelled within a year, i listened to dbs but its litterally the last thing id watch at home on tv with everything else on. To be honest i think think people cared about dean as much as he thinks they do as i wouldda listened to the show regardless of who it was because it wasnt just news, sports but had listeners engaging alot aswell. Really think some people are putting dean on a pedestal that he doesnt derserve snd his attempted fail on tv will prove it

August 6, 2013 / 13:37

Not so fast

Oh yeah, i cant cant wait to see dean get crushed on tv rating by not only one women but by a dozen of them, his years of degrading women will come full circle when shows like rickie lake and rachel ray destroy his ratings.

August 6, 2013 / 13:40

non-factor

Yeah sure factor ill believe that when I hear it. Deans tweeted the show is back #aug12 and Josie said the same today, the Dean Blundel show returns monday.

Everybody relax, Todd didn't carry the show and Dean inbetween the news and edgefiles is bearable, it really is the only thing worth listening to on T.O.s airwaves.

August 6, 2013 / 18:28

Chuck D

I agree with Not So Fast. Dean is not the first radio host who tried out tv. Honestly, I can't think of one former morning radio host that has made it on television.

Btw from what Dean and Derek are saying on Twitter they will be back on Monday morning.

August 6, 2013 / 18:52

Todd carried 65% of the show

@Non factor, what do you mean Todd didn't carry the show? You will see just how quick this morning gig goes bad without, todd on the street, Todd's intelligent (sometimes Juvenal ) hilarity. He had the best one liners and made the show soo much better, just by his charm and self degradation alone. Dean is great at having his voice ( but when he leaves NO room or tolerance for anyone else's he becomes a war lord) listen to podcast May 24 I picked up some anger between them, ( it's all spoke in code) the last edge files segment. Todd's mentions he has a patch,( meaning he went Anal on a girl) Dean quips back something snarky. Most telling part is Dean says as a kid he was a beaver ( Boy Scout) he came home and said he hated it and people are dumb ect .. Todd says: the start of your radio career, lol j/k kind of thing. Dean says something about how he didn't like complainers and he didn't want to be there so it works out for everyone.

Essentially they are doing what's called talking in code. They are masking their words with a story. (This happens around the 45 min mark I think) I've always been able to pick up on "code" talk very easily and they did it very well. (Some people are very blatant when doing it.
Anyway someone may find this interesting I will look for more examples.

Yes, it could be the #1 rated show in Toronto, but as of what date was that poll taken. That's not saying much when you consider the other options that are available for the current time on terrestrial radio in Toronto. The whole show is built on an existing fan base which has been following the DBS for years. The demographic is aging and I doubt the show is picking up any younger listeners. In fact many radio listeners in Toronto itself don't know who Dean is or what the DBS is. I HIGHLY doubt there is any sort of major recognition for the show outside the GTA and most likely miniscule outside of the province.

As far as shows go, did you actually attend the Captain Morgan DBS events? I did. They were small "free" admission venues probably attracting no more than 100-200 actually DBS listeners who showed up along with the "other" bar regulars those particular nights. Not exactly the "thousands" you claim that would show up if the show was actually so "popular" as you state. I even have video of the events. I have posted a few on Youtube only to garner a couple thousand hits on each in a span of 2 years. Not exactly a success in viewership if you ask me (I have since removed them). I don't want to get into the issue of events like Sausagefest or Edgefest. I think many of those attendees are there to see the live acts and not so much for the DBS.

Since we are on the topic, let's talk about the DBS "Unplugged" show. That experiment lasted a whole, what, 2 months before the plug was pulled?

It's quite apparent some listeners are becoming very sensitive with the material on the show. The only real news the DBS has been making in the last couple of years is incidents with the CSBC rulings. Not something to be proud of, imo.

Along with the loss of Todd, it seems there has been a shuffle in upper management (from what I've heard and read). Someone or somebodies will take their place and will they be as "easy-going" with the show material? Most likely not. It seems there has been a major shake-up over at the DBS and listeners haven't been givien any concrete answers as to why. This is in no way positive for listeners and it seems there are quite a few angry DBS listeners out there.

As far as a tv gig, what could Dean possibly do? A late night watered-down talk show version of the DBS? That reminds me of another Canadian comedian who made that attempt. His name was Mike Bullard and we all know how that ended up.

The DBS is basically an old horse being led to the glue factory. It's living on bought time.

Enjoy the revamped show if there is one. Let us know how it's working out here. I'm no longer enthusiastic about listening in.

The whole thing is sad. Like it or not, they were funny. Dean handled 9/11 like a pro. Todd was great at what he did too. I'd sit in tears in traffic on the QEW listening to Todd on the Street. Regardless, things took a turn for me when Jason left, and being a corporate girl myself, it's time to realize these things happen. Will still listen to both 97.7 and the Edge. It's entertainment.

August 7, 2013 / 19:23

Mike

All the best for Todd... he brings out the humour in the show, often positive, knows how to poke fun at himself, and how to handle himself after Dean's condescending comments... Todd one the street and meeting your TML / Blue jays are were awesome.

I have been listening to DBS for three years and found Dean funny before the whole divorce, now he seems bitter, arrogant, and disrespectful. I started tuning out to the show after he keeps playing booooooooooring bit to some callers. Dean is not good without a cohost who can withstand his abuse, just listen to how unconfortable Derrick/Adj/Nicole get when Dean tries to demean them like he did to Todd/Meatus/Drughead/Marlow Sunshine...

With the DBS being out for a couple weeks i tried to find other stuff to listen to, and have stumbled upon The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. Try giving him a listen, its really insightful, and he brings in really cool guests.

August 7, 2013 / 20:50

Ricco

More people need to make formal complaints to the CSBC about this radio douchebag Dean Blundell. Eventually the station will have no choice but to get rid of his ragetty ass. That or castrate his show to the point he'll have to get up every morning to put on a "family friendly" show.

August 7, 2013 / 23:54

Um, Lots of negativity on this blog. Personally I'm sad to see todd go, but Dean is still funny and i look forward to see who the new cohost is

Wow deal

Listening to Indie 88 is making me want to slit my wrists. What a depressing radio station

August 8, 2013 / 09:57

Big A-Mac

While I haven't listened to 88.1 as of yet, I hope Todd can find another radio show to become a part of. While he was great on the DBS, I believe that, with a better host/co-host to work with, he'd shine even brighter than before. His humour is usually spot-on, while Dean's sometimes lacks the kick it needs to make a statement within his listening community. And what was said about dean's attitude before and after the divorce is almost a perfect representation of how the show has developed: into (one of) Dean's own ranting obsessions. He (Dean) needs to dial it back and remember that us listeners will decide his future. Good luck, Tickles! And always remember kids... TODDS GAY!

August 8, 2013 / 12:47

no one knows

I work at the edge, and I can confirm that on deans return the showwill be going to an all talk format, or at least mostly talk. Dean will still play music but it'll be far between. Corus fired todd because he was against this change. thats hwy dean said the show is about listeners, todd just wanted to play music and not entertain

August 8, 2013 / 17:46

no longer listening

you know that "Todd is gay" line makes me think... i find myself rethinking everything Dean said to Todd and wonder if he has always been a bitch.
On the surface now I think that Dean liked Todd in the begining because Todd got laid all the time and Dean lived vicariously through Todd. Then as Todd started to find fame and do well Dean resented it.

August 8, 2013 / 17:58

Dean's ads with Kory's are painful... Todd was a natural at doing that stuff.

102.1 The Sister station to 99.9

@no one knows.
If that is true, then the show will bomb huge. But at least the rock music of Daft Punk, Gotye and Lorde wont be played on this "rock" station in the morning.

Dean is very dull with out Todd. Dean is a leach and can only be entertaining when he is leaching off of someone else's jokes. I don't think I have ever heard him interview a guest where he wasn't a stuttering douche bag. Even Derek can see that Dean is about as useful as tits on a nun. The music sucks on there now and they might as well call themselves the sister station to 99.9.
The annoying commercials that are spammed dozens and dozens of times a day, along with the poor play lists and lack of actual rock music topped with the recent firing of one of the people who had talent and was entertaining is what is driving people away from this station. I only listen to Fred, he is the only one who is entertaining.

I've started listening to 97.7 and I enjoy it. It is actual rock music and not dance music.

August 8, 2013 / 23:09

Rob

Just noticed the Ben and Kerry show on Y108 has changed to the Ben and Shawna show. I can only assume Kerry is either heading to the Edge or 88.1. Although he's no spring chicken, he is one of the biggest music fans out there, and would be great at whatever station he goes to. If he does join The Edge, I'd love to see Dean try to pick on a guy with that much experience.

August 9, 2013 / 08:27

I stopped listening when he repeated Rob Ford jokes over and over, becoming one of the drones that don't look at the real political problems, just the funny fat ones. 94.9 is where it's at GTA!

Dean's a huge f*ckin' egotistical bitch. His whole show has been built on insulting Mayor Rob Ford, Justin Biber, Drake, etc etc. The same sh*t over and over. Now that Todd is gone, I will take ANY and EVERY segement I find offensive and REPORT it to the CBSC.

downtown

For the past year I have only tuned into the "Wha' Happened" bit. I took Dean's advice: "if you don't like the show, switch stations". I got tired of Dean's bullying of people who don't agree with him. I think Todd did, too.

I have thought the music on 102.1 was not that good any more. (Daft Punk, Serena Ryder, etc.)the station seemed kinda top 40s to me. Not like the old days.

I am now rotating the dial between 97.7 to 107.1 to 107.9. After reading some of the above posts I will check out 88.1, thanks guys.

August 10, 2013 / 21:40

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz, get over it.

Just read this whole blog - quite entertaining. To those who keep claiming your done listening - yea right. Get it out of your system and tune back in (as I know you will) in a few days.

Yes, the loss of Todd was a blow - shocking even. But most of you are taking this waay too personal. You think your opinions are really going to make an impact? This is entertainment, nothing more. My suggestion? Move on. If you took the time to search this forum out, and had the balls to post your hatred towards the station claiming you won't listen any longer, you'll be back - if not only to watch the train wreck roll on.

The show survived the loss of Jason, and they will Todd as well. Much to your chagrin. In a few weeks no one will care about Todd scenario, and you'll all have moved onto the next 15 seconds of fame situation.

August 11, 2013 / 00:04

No doubt

No doubt that they prob wont lose a ton of listeners (right away) but unquestionably they lost the biggest asset and talent. I know this for certain I download all the podcast, and since todd left I haven't downloaded more then 1 new ones without Todd. Real poor decision to let him go I take it personally cuz it fucks with my mornings. They should have done whatever it would have took to get Todd to stay. Disappointed to see them let such a strong asset leave. Very unfortunate.

August 11, 2013 / 08:48

Saver

I disagree there zzzzzzz. I listened to that station for about 28 years. Then when Jason left I started to move on. Then Bookie. Alan Cross gone too. Now Todd.
They've made some bad decisions. Dean is brutal. And I haven't listened since Todd left, although I was half and half with 97.7 anyways. Am sure they don't care much about my demographic, but I voted with My feet. Their playlist is awful too.

August 12, 2013 / 07:44

This is horrible

Wow is this show ever a train wreck lately. Adj is HORRIBLE, she is a highly paid laugh track. Did Dean bring her on the show to just laugh at his jokes all morning or will she ever bring some actual content. Adj is good at traffic, leave her there. The show this morning was terrible, couldn't even listed, turned in for five minutes in the hope they had brought someone decent on the show... NOPE. I will stick with Biggs and Barr on 97.7, good music and funny show.

Whats left at the Edge? Bad music.... correction... horrible music and a very unfunny morning show with the same old jokes and no fresh content.

Wont be listening again, and no I'm not one of those people who say that and tune back in... I'm done.

August 12, 2013 / 08:50

Go for it

Holy fuck is adj the worst thing in the world. She adds nothing to the show except to be an annoying laugh and repeat things.. Why does she repeat everything she says twice? Is she retarded? Fuck I hope dean is not considering adding her to the show full time. I hope adj does us all a favour and gets aids and dies

If the crtc weren't a bunch of pussies n got they're heads outta their asses Todd Shapiro would still have his spot on the DBS !!!

August 12, 2013 / 11:48

The Listener

We don't know what happened to Todd other than the fact he's no longer there. Did he get fired? Quit? NOBODY has addressed the issue and I don't appreciate Dean dodging the issue. I also feel Todd (who has been MIA for the last 3 weeks) has not brought any closure or explanation either.

I tuned in briefly at 6:10 am this morning to hear what's new. What I heard was Dean laying into Mayor Rob Ford (typical) being drunk on the Danforth. Adjwoa (sorry for the name mispelling) was laughing away as usual and Derek was trying to get a joke in here and there between Dean's babble. I can't knock Adj, she's a traffic reporter. It's seems they are throwing here in the mix to help fill the void left by Todd's departure. But I think it would be wise for them to simply let her do what she's been doing for the past 8 or 9 years, the TRAFFIC! Derek, as much as I appreciate him and think he's talented, doesn't quite blend with Dean's "low-ball" humour.

What's even more disappointing is I just logged into the Dean Blundell Facebook page and realized I've been banned from commenting. This after saying a few unfavorable and truthful comments. This is the treatment listeners and webpage supporters (for years) get when things go to the shitter.

Fine by me, that's how they want it, that's how they will get it.

Needless to say, my extent to listening to this mornings show lasted all but 5 minutes. I have absolutely no idea how the rest of the show went, nor do I really care at this point.

todays special

I agree that Adj needs to be either killed or fired, she is terrible. Why does she feels the need to just repeat what dean has said or even repeat what she's just said. Is it nerves? or is she just that dumb on her feet when it comes to having conversations on air? Dean Likes her because she has huge boobs, and that's fine if that's all a woman offers, but not on radio. us as listeners have to hear her and its like nails on a chalkboard, Please someone push her in front of a train, or have her go back to traffic and have the helicopter crash

August 12, 2013 / 17:32

Pile Driver

Want to take down the show? Call in with a stupid story that you want to share on "what happened" or during some other call-in part of the show. End your story with "Dean Sucks" and hang up. It may not make it to air as there is a 10 second delay, but if enough people do it he'll get the message, or at least become so paranoid about what callers will say that he'll stop relying on listeners content to fill his slot.

This would be a funy way for the listeners to put a nail in his coffin before the suits at corus do it anyways.

hey Dean you long time Howard Stern wanna be .Such a douchbag.Todd made that show not you .Awesome career move dude

August 12, 2013 / 20:19

wow

I haven't really been paying much attention to the DBS for the past few months or so because it seemed to me that it was becoming more watered down. And this was while Todd was still part of the show.

I had been completely unaware that Todd was gone until I tuned in this morning and something seemed like something was off. I then noticed Todd was missing so I did a quick google search where I saw that he was let go couple weeks ago. This pretty much kills the show for me as Todd basically made listening fun and was the perfect counter for Dean's douchiness.

I guess that means I'll be paying even less attention now.

August 12, 2013 / 20:57

Uwinagain

I remember when Jason was killed off the show. People would call in and ask psychic Nikki if she could help find their friend Jason that was missing, dean caught on and eventually was more open about Jason being written off the show. Infact over time dean would even bring up Jason and talk about how weird he was and how grumpy he was. I hope people start calling in and either flat out asking dean what happens to Todd or being subtle about it and seeing if dean picks up on it and comments. So call in people, also be sure to mention how incredibly stupid and worthless adjwa is. She's worse then the blind on that ridiculousness show on MTV. Dumb bitch with a set of tits

August 12, 2013 / 21:33

I liked Todd and all,but maybe it was because he kept showing up half in the bag.The man likes his alcohol(as do I).And Dean would always bust his balls about coming in hung over and red eyed.

i cant get over how bad todays show was... Dean was laughing at stuff he normally hangs up on so its clear that he knows what is being said about him and the show.

BYE DEAN... GOOD LUCK IN YOUR NEW JOB...

August 12, 2013 / 22:51

Wolf Like Me

I listened this morning and am glad a lit of people are noticing the same things. Adj laughing at everything Dean says and repeating him and herself repeatedly.
Not sure if Todd quit or was fired but the joy in the show came from Todd. Like him or not he was quick on his feet and had real wit. No one else on the show comes close.

Derek is a great guy but either lacks the confidence to be funny any more or isn't allowed to be. He used to have his moments.

August 12, 2013 / 23:34

wha happened

lol Dean's the biggest pussy with a large outlet to influence his flock of mindless sheep that wouldn't know what good music is if it ran them over in a submarine. Gotta love how he is very disturbed that Rob Ford wont answer crack allegations then a couple weeks later wont even acknowledge that Todd even existed.

August 13, 2013 / 01:34

The Listener

Yeah, Dean's a fucking douche. Works with a guy (Todd) for over 10 years. Guy (Todd) gets fired or quite (we don't even know what the fuck happened) and yes, acts as if he never existed. In fact, if it wasn't for the listeners constantly asking what happened to Todd, I think Dean would have kept going on without a word.

You all remember that one week and a half or so when Todd was gone. Everyone thought he was on vacation. Dean didn't say one word about Todd for days!

Fuck Dean! I'm sure he had something to do with Todd's exit.

I've tried to listen to the DBS yesterday and again this morning. It just sucks now. Same crap, nothing changes. When Dean plays the "Booooorrrrrriiiinnnnnggggg" sound clip on people, he should do that to himself and his show. I finally had to give up this morning. Can't take it anymore.

Dean Blundell, your show sucks now.

It's time for a new show .... new radio station.

The show is so painful to listen to, I actually look forward to commercial breaks. I need to find another station with decent music, at least for the morning.

So, after over a decade, it is finally over. In hindsight, an avid listener could see there was friction between the 2. I've been listening to the Edge since the Pete & Geets days. When it seemed like I had discovered this incredible secret; an incredible show with music like no other. It was fantastic. And the DJs were as Excited about the music as I was. But that was then. The Show has gone through all manner of evolution, but primarily from the emphasis of the music being Edgey to the host being Edgey - or an Ass. Take your pick. In this context they could be synonymous. In any event we went through the run of the gamut in morning show hosts: from Steve Anthony to Humble & Fred to Dean & Todd. As much as We All can appreciate a well honed product, there is such a thing as over-producing. Just take a look at any number of Hollywood films. Most are forgettable and show nothing of director talent as it is a Production First rule; where it is producer, not character or story driven. It's all about production value, not about telling a great story. Radio is no different, and where most stations are the same watered down versions of each other, the Dean Blundell show is CFNY's attempt to keep it real. Sure, there are rules, mostly CRTC rules, some of which CFNY has skirted with, but for the most part, the DBS's actual non musical portion of the show has been Dean's playground - greatly influenced by the producer of the show - from Jason Barr to now Derek Welsman. And also Todd. And in speaking about Todd, we mustn't forget how Todd got his job at the edge. It was through a Live intern contest where he was basically a gopher and on-air buffoon. When you're hired because you whack off on air and produce a cup of semen for your "boss", exactly what kind of respect can you Ever command? Yes, Dean is a jaded, surly, prick who only gets worse by the day. His immature boob references and Rob Ford voice do nothing to help him. He has lost track of himself and really, once it's gone, it's gone. But Dean - as do many of the others, come from backgrounds of industry education and are skilled, learned and talented in the art of radio. Todd brought some balance and took some "edge" off Dean - (irony?), but more to appease the more reasonable listener and not necessarily by plan, but rather it was just their characters coming through. In the end, Shapiro is an attention seeker who does not fear reprecussion because he foolishly believed that everything he does or says is Sanctioned by some higher entity (which at one time was Dean)...Does Dean have a huge Ego? You bet. As does anyone who is in the performing business. Any radio, TV, Film personality has a huge Ego. I mean, we All have Egos. But when you trip over your own constantly, it's Huge. Does that matter in the departing of Todd and the Show? Probably. But it's also what made the show work when it did. Unfortunately on Todd's behalf there was a little more disillusion than with Dean, which may be why Dean flips so much. In spite of his Ego, he inderstands that he may be wrong. He's actually quite aftaid of being wrong and prefers to hang up on people or talk over them should they be able to make a sentiient point. Perhaps if one had character enough to stand up to a bloated egomaniac like Dean and could articulate their position, you might actually gain his respect / not that you'd need it. But Todd... well who would care to? His idea of self respect comes down to what he can gain from You. He will flip if he sees an advantage for himself, not because he actually cares. Remember, he jerked off on air!! To get an intern job!! At 29 years of age!! You just can't respect that. You can admire it, but not respect it. And in the end, that's what all this comes down to: Everybody loves a Fool, but no one wants him for a Son. So goodbye Todd. Wherever you turn up, if it's anything more than a sidekick posting, you will fall flat on your face. I'm sure time will mend the wound that now gapes between Dean & Todd because they are both in the same boat. Maybe not radio show, but certainly, they are now past their prime, fish out of water with large targets on their backs. Good Luck to both of you, but quite frankly I've been tired of you both for a long, long time.

Canada-eh

Interesting reading all these posts....what to make of them? Personally, I'm done with the show. I was really put off the way they made Jason 'disappear'. He was a class act, had the smart quips and still my favourite saying came from Jason: Everything will fit if you kick it hard enough!!

I left for a while, then tried a couple of times to listen to DBS again....same humour, which I don't mind in small bits, but over and over and over...yet, Todd was the one guy who brought a bit of variety....he is unique, funny and talented! The self-depricating person he is (sorry for spelling) is what makes him likeable. I honestly haven't even tuned my radio into 102.1 since I heard he left. I know that industry is hush-hush about this stuff, and I appreciate the feedback on this blog (thanks MIKE!) as this is where the Jason info surfaced too.
I don't even want to tune in as I know Adjwoa(sp?)in the past, didn't add anything, except average traffic reports (but guys come on, eas up on the malicious aids/crash,death comments)...
All the best to you TODDY TICKLES, hope you get appreciated wherever you land.
Cheers all.

August 13, 2013 / 09:36

Dang JohnnyD...my post followed that?!!?
Well put, insightful...Still I hope tickle-me-todd does land somewhere. At 40, you'd hope he's grown a little....not like he had a good 'role model' at DBS.

The Show Today

DBS is truly the worst morning show on the air. OMG this mornings show was PAINFUL to listen to. Why would you put a traffic person on air. She has ZERO on air skill when she's not reading a piece of paper. The laugh track sidekick needs to end. Meh, doesn't matter anyway, I just cant listen anymore, there's NOTHING funny on that show. I attempted to give it another shot today, I used to actually LOL when listening to the show, today, I didn't even crack a smile.

Goodbye Dean Blundell, you're a washed up has been. You should come down from your high horse now buddy before it's too late. You being by yourself on the show is only more evidence of how terrible a host you are.

August 13, 2013 / 09:55

I used to love the DBS show.. it's sad that it's come to this.
Adjowa is really bad and I couldnt even listen this morning becuase of her. Derrick is ok but he's better at being the producer than on air. Todd was very whitty and funny and he and Dean played well off of each other. If what is posted about his departure is true then Dean is a big baby.
Get over yourself Dean, the show was good and now it's terrible.
Well done..

I've been listening to the show since day one. They've had a good run and now it seems it's finally over. Dean is a douche but the chemistry between him and Todd made it entertaining. Todds whit and personality played off Deans arrogance well. Todd makes a good co anchor and I hope he ends up in that role somewhere and I will tune in from time to time I am sure. If he had his own show it would probably suck balls. As for DBS, I am done. I used to listen because I enjoyed the show. Now I listen to watch the train roll off the tracks...but you can only tune into that for so long,its painful to watch.

Why does Dean talk about penis so much? is he gay...not that there is anything wrong with being gay. I am starting to think that he is.

August 13, 2013 / 12:22

DBS ...... sooooo boring

I hope Dean reads this blog, it would be a good eye opening experience for him. Maybe someone can send him the link.

Actually he would probably invest about 30 seconds of his time, then say you guys can all go and suck it.

I'm Dean friggin Blundell ......

August 13, 2013 / 12:56

long time listener

The chemistry between Dean and Todd made the show. When Jason left I was a little sadden and then Derrick was added and got over it. But now without Todd this show is gonna suck more balls then fearless Fred's crappy satire in the afternoon.

Not to mention the music has really gone down hill, not that that's the edges fault entirely but they have never helped matters either.

I've been listening to the biggs & barr show since last week and they got some interesting material. At least it's refreshing and not the same water down crap that has been on dbs for the last little while. And they play some good old music that you don't get to hear very often.

Without Todd this show is over IMO. The edge has lost its way.

My favourite was Jason, I was glad when he got hired at 97.7 with Chris Biggs, LOVE THAT SHOW! I tried listening to Physic Nikki's segments but I can't even stand Dean's voice or the way he talks over/insults her so I gave up. I only just heard a reference this morning about a "Todd" looking for a job & googled him! Dean treats everyone like shit & Karma is finally coming his way. The music is better on 97.7 too, not the same songs played every 15 minutes...

Good luck Todd, you're better off.

Joe Listener

This blog must say a lot to corus if they read it. There is not one positive comment about the dbs in here. This isn't a site for hate of dbs or dean blundell so you'd think there would be two sides in here. But. There isn't, everyone has the same point of view, Todd made the show, everyone's pissed Todd got fired, Dean is an arrogant prick that everyone's sick of, the show sucks now, adwoa is horrible and Derek is awesome at what Derek does, which is not off the cuff on air comedy. The sum of this is that the show sucks now. The funniest thing is how I mentioned there are no arguments in here, when was the last time you saw a thread run this long for anything without a few fights. None. Everyone agrees.

Time to listen corus, drop the entire dbs and get something fresh.

August 13, 2013 / 21:40

The Listener

Good points Joe.

The DBS is a sinking ship and it seems it's Captain (Dean) is doing nothing about it. You could argue it's been slowly sinking and taking on water for months, even years now, but it's absolutely at the point of hitting rock bottom, and I really hate how everyone is playing it off at the Edge like nothing is going on.

As a listener for years, you get emotionally attached to people (co-hosts) you bring into your life every morning. It's simply unfair to have him cut like a cancer and thrown out into the trash with no regard.

I've heard snippets of the show here and there since Todd left. Haven't downloaded any single podcast since ( I was previously downloading every single one religiously).

I've been banned from commenting on the DBS Facebook page for expressing my disappointment in the whole situation. It's amazing even 3 weeks later there are posts and posts of angry comments on their page by users about Todd's dismissal.

Good for you guys. Let them know how you really feel. I applaud you all for being truthful!

Todd's Gay

I'm with 90% of the posts on here. Deans a sell out. Gassing Todd is one of the worst moves this soon to be 99.9 sister station has made. I REALLY enjoyed listening to the banter these two had, and after 10 years- that's his fare well?!?!
Adj or whatever the hell your name is, let Richard announce the traffic while you go run in it. I hate to be cynical but Jesus, a blind man in an orgy has a better chance at feeling his way through a conversation then she does. Stick with traffic.
Miss ya Todd, hope you land on your feet somewhere where your coworkers respect you. You have a crap load of followers that will support and tune in.
Deans borderline gay.

Dean came out at 6:30 and said there was certainly no truth to him having gay sex haha.
Sounds a little familiar to a certain Mayors situation. Deny, deny, deny.

If Todd was fired I bet he's got a good severnece package and is in no rush to get started elsewhere. Unlikely he'll go to Biggs and Barr though.

At least one insider was right, about the different guest hosts for the next while.

Just because both Dean and Todd have had some sexual encounters with the same sex doesn't make them gay. It was way too much alcohol ... all horned up .... it just happened.

I stopped listening a few years ago after listening to them religiously since '01. I used to listen for jason and todd. I don't like 99% of their music and most of the hosts' schticks are getting boring. Josie is trying pretty hard to be what she was. I don't enjoy her take on sex either. I can listen to Fred sometimes and I enjoy that he puts himself out there on twitter/facebook/instagram.

The good music is at 94.1 on cbc for their mornings and afternoonss. Always good stuff on there. Their quips about weird news are light and easy. I listen to 680/99.1 for interesting talk and 1010 for humble & fred and alan cross. I don't like 97.7s music because they play ac/dc and Soundgarden in the way that The Edge milks their love of Nirvana and Dave Grohl. Biggs and Barr sounded okay the dew times I tried them.

Hope he ends up in a good place. I'd imagine he'd be good if he could be mature, and as people said, he was a good guy off air.

I am a 56 year old, educated, female listener. My kids would always leave my car radio on the edge and I started laughing and enjoying the show (It's been 3 or 4 years now) Todd would always answer with a quick and funny comment when Dean would read or speak about a topic, they blended well together. I will also miss Todd's infectious laugh. I listened to them now with Adjewah and Derek and had to switch the channel. I listen to Roger,Darren and Marilyn on CHUM now (Hate the Music) but Roger reminds me of Dean and of course Darren of Todd (with his fast funny combacks). I will also miss his impersonation of John Travolta, Christopher Walken etc.
OMG EDGE get him back.... Thanks

Did anyone ever consider they (aka Dean) can't address Todd's departure because lawyers are involved and NDA's are in place? Maybe Todd doesn't want anyone knowing and talking about what happened. Todd will address it in good time when/if he resurfaces. But the personal slashes against everyone? Come on people. Adjwa does not do a great job as a co-host, I agree, and the show/music IS hurting. But they are going through a restructuring that is very common in corporations, which is what Corus is, whether you agree with their management's decisions or not. Good things happen to good people, bad things happen to bad people, good things happen to bad people, and bad things happen to good people, it is what it is. Let's see how they make out with their restructuring before we start wishing Aids and train accidents on people. Good grief. Does somebody need a hug? I've been through many changes with the boys and gals on the Edge being a long time (40ish female) listener, and unless I was sitting in that studio at the time everything went down with Todd's "departure" and any time leading up to it for that matter, I won't speculate, although tuning into this blog has been a great escape for me during the day. It's not easy just to "get someone back" that may not even want to be there in the first place. People grow, disagree, change, whatever have you, I wish everyone the best. I will still tune in, but I do also listen to 97.7 and 108, pretty much give all of you the same air time (well 97.7 or 108 are better weekend stations, sorry). And hey, what 's wrong with ACDC?? Variety is the spice of life! And if the Edge doesn't work for you anymore then move on. Oh, and before everyone starts to speculate and wish a train accident on me for not slamming Dean here, I am NOT affiliated in any way with the DBS, Corus radio, or Todd for that matter...

August 14, 2013 / 17:32

jacksons four

The funny thing about this whole situation is that Dean is getting wrongly blamed for this whole thing. I've worked at the edge since 2006 and I can tell you that Dean had nothing to do with todd leaving, Infact He pleaded with todd to stay. Todd left on his own accord, he wants his own show and corus wasn't about to give it to him. The reason it's not being discussed on air is because as a user above said, theres lawyers involved like crazy, Todd was under contract until 2014 so his leaving is a breach of contract, neither side can really discuss whats going on because theyve been advised not to until its all sorted out. Dean had Jason removed from the show, but todd just upped and quit

Charlie Shnosky III

I've been listening to 97.7 in my car in the morning since Iron Mike Bensson started doing the morning show in '04. Always listened to 97.7 at other times of the day, but had listened to DBS for the morning drive before that. I listen to DBS in the house before I leave in the morning because the reception for 97.7 is lousy in my house. I like the music on 97.7, and I like Biigs and Barr. Not overly offensive, but often funny.

That being said, I find that DBS has become incresingly juvenile, redundant, and uninteresting over the last few years. Hearing a guy in his 40's (Dean) constantly talking about his sexual prowess is really off-putting. Todd is charismatic enough, but I always found him a bit too smarmy. I think he's a second banana level talent; I doubt he could deliver ratings with his own show. We'll see what happens. Todd is probably used to a decent lifestyle and is going to need a regular paycheck soon, especially if his hot fiancee is going to remain with him for any period of time.

As for the DBS, we'll see if he can deliver ratings with the current/upcoming format.

I can confirm that Dean's next host will be none other then Tarzan Dan! His official tenure won't start until September 3rd but the contract has been signed and there should be an announcement soon.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz, get over it.

The only reason Adj is now on the morning show is to provide a female buffer to all the sexist remarks made about women on the show. Its harder for women to bash the source when one of their own is involved and laughing too.

Poor decision in my opinion as there is no depth to anything adj says anyways. Im tuning now only to witness the train wreck roll on...

Don't get me wrong, I loved Todd. But, the show was VERY stale and the content was repetitive and quite boring. Having Billie Holiday on the show might give it the umph it needed. Plus, she did a great job on 92.5.

In reply to: Binford's comments on July 25, 2013/20:11:

You have to be kidding me!? Do you actually think the Dean Blundell show is THAT original? They bite styles from left & right, especially from Howard Stern. Where do u think the whole "Wha happened!?" sound bite/bit was used first, amongst many others... Stern does/says something, a week or two later u hear it on Dean Blundell's show.

DBS has been on a steady decline for the past few years, ever since Corus media's takeover of it, with it's tamed down format change and censorship (& pretty much whenever Dean's divorce commenced, that's all he would talk about!) It's depressing enough to be up at 6:00-7:00AM and commuting to work, it doesn't help when your (once-was) favourite morning radio show is all about self-pity, angst & making fun of mentally ill individual. I feel like Dean was probably a huge loser growing up and now in his 40’s he’s “giving it back” to others. I’m no shrink but it seems like behavioural patterns with him, like acting out and trying to relive his youth or something. All he talks about now is Justin Bieber, Drake and making fun of other radio hosts in order to stay relevant, it's really pathetic. I remember back when the show first aired, they ripped on other music formats (ie: "schlock rock" bands like Guns & Roses etc...) But when I tuned in a few months back, I heard both G&R AND AC/DC and I was blown away (not that I have anything against either of those bands). I just find it hypocritical of the host to be bashing something only to be playing that exact music later on. This is the beginning of the inevitable end, it's been a long-time coming and as previous comments mentioned. I, along many of my friends will not miss this sore excuse for a radio show.

Dean has the extraordinary boldness and balls to put down Todd on the radio this morning. How dare he? Who does he think he is? He never uses his name, but the audacity he has to even for a second talk down about Todd is disgusting. Jesus Corus Entertainment. Are you reading this? GET RID OF DEAN. he's a jerk, has been, done, move on to some fresh positive DJ's in the morning. I can't stand his negativity.

RT dundten: I totally agree with u about everyone saying they won't listen. If that was the case, the DBS would've been off air years ago. As for Indie 88.1FM: They do play some good music occasionally, but ur right its more or less 102.1 the edge's format with some "older" tunes occasionally. And I had the same experience with their frequency/signal. It either goes all staticy, or just dead air until it resurfaces a signal again. At first I thought it was my car and/or radio, I guess not.

Side note: for all you asking if Dean was at edgefest, you're likely not getting a response becuz the edgefest line-up was atrocious! Headliners: Lumineers? gimme a break! Only good thing about edgefest this year was the fact that Monster Truck was on the bill. Edgefest has been slipping more-so then the station and it's morning show.

August 15, 2013 / 15:14

Hey

Whaaaa happened?!?!

August 15, 2013 / 15:37

hugs and kisses too

Dean was pathetic today. He just swooned over billie like she was the greatest broadcaster ever. Frig dude you used to call her phoney and dumb. And I like how he addresses the gay affair he's having then brushed it off like it wasn't true. Face facts dean, you got caught with your pants down and now you have to come out and admit it. Also Derrick seemed to be hiding something too

August 15, 2013 / 20:03

Dan

There’s a reason why it was called the DEAN BLUNDELL Show, and not the Dean and Todd show. Don’t get me wrong, I liked Todd, he was funny at times. But maybe it was time for him to stop riding Dean’s coat tails.

Dean will be fine when he finds someone new (Like Billy, on todays show 15Aug.).

And for all you Dean haters, I agree with most his comments on air, and most of you do too, you’re just afraid to say it.

Cheers Todd

you know if I was Dean I would do something funny... that might help the show...

August 15, 2013 / 21:34

The only reason Todd would go to htzfm is if iron mike retires. Biggs & Barr dont need him. As for the dbs it's been boring an repetitive for a long time, id rather listen to htzfm or the fan. Both are far more entertaining!

August 15, 2013 / 21:58

The Listener

Dean can't hold an interview by himself if his life depended on it. Terrible show today.

I had to hear it for myself. Billie's very professional. Dean keeps bringing up her being let go from her last station and what it's like working with Mad Douche. You can feel the tension. Can you blame her?

It's quite obvious Dean doesn't work well with women (see his past). He even mentions it. Why bring this poor women on air? She doesn't seem the type to stoop to Dean's dirty low-ball type of humour. It was like Dean brought her on to stroke his own ego, saying "This is the greatest day of my life", "I knew it", "I've waited 8 years" when referring to Mad Dog and Billie "copying" his material.

Billie STAY AWAY. Today's show just proved again, who the real douche is (Dean).

August 15, 2013 / 21:58

careful people... mayor Ford has never been so popular. This whole thing will only make Deans ratings better... I find myself listening just to see what's going to happen. On the short term this will help but when they settle in the show will eventually fail if they don't find a new direction.

August 15, 2013 / 22:13

My CD Player Does Not Work

I've been listening to CFNY before DBS - go Brampton!

DBS has had its ups and downs over the years (remember Sandra?), but I thought it was at a nice 'level' these past couple of months.

When Jason (aka Danger Boy) left - I was shocked. Immediately afterwards, Dean and Todd seemed lost and they had a very rough patch as a key talented guy was lost. Derek came back and things got much better as he has tonnes of a different talent.

It is too bad Todd has left, but it seemed to have to happen as he's 40 and his on-air persona seems to be like a guy in his 20's - a sidekick to Dean's more mature persona... Perhaps a new start, will allow Todd to refresh himself? The Re-Todd or Tickles shtick can't last forever but he can transfer over his fanbase and adapt his humour.

Like him or not, boring or funny depending on the day, Dean is the main dude with things to say. With a new host, perhaps things will get even better? They have to have a female perspective on the show as it makes sense demographically. I enjoy talking and listening to women.

I though Billie was good today (as she was back on 92.5). She got a bit weird before she was fired off of Virgin - she was going through a rough time. If she gets the job, she'll be fine and may have more to offer. Two divorcees with their own male/female perspectives! If Derek thinks she's good, then she is 'good'.

Life and radio shows do not last forever. Radio seems like a really screwed up business.

My personal opinion is that Corus has it 'right' with Q107... Everyone is solid on there. The Derringer group is the best all around. Ryan and John will be fine when Derringer retires/leaves - they are a great team and blend with everyone. Dominik Diamond is my choice for the 'Next One'. What happened to Scholes? He and John 'Flairboy' brought back 'Rock & Soul'!

(I also think that the Edge's Greg B. is original and that Damnit Maurie from 92.5 and Biggs & Barr's Jamie should be removed from all media).

I went off on a tangent. I listen to the radio way too much.

August 15, 2013 / 22:30

Greed free

Who's Sandra? Did dean used to have a female cohost? I've only listened for a year or two now (never knew Jason). But someone want to fill me in on Sandra?

Thankd

August 15, 2013 / 23:05

Hey Wha Happened

August 15, 2013 / 23:05

My CD Player Does Not Work

Sandra Plagakis - long time ago. Not sure why she left, but I think she's still on the radio. Then there was Lisa Player for a bit, who I think left radio altogether...

I remember when Todd came on DBS near the beginning (Todd was the 4th wheel). He was Dean's 'bitch' and was even fired.

Jason Barr was on with Humble & Fred prior to DBS - he was named "Danger Boy" and did stupid things as a young man - similar to what Todd did when he came on board to DBS. Jason is pretty cool.

You can't have too many chefs.

August 15, 2013 / 23:28

Deb

I got sick of listening to Dean bitch and whine about every other radio show stealing his material. Meanwhile, as many others here have mentioned, he is a HUGE Howard Stern copycat. Nothing he does is original. Even "wha happened" is a Stern bit. After Jason left, I stopped listening regularly. Just happened to tune in briefly yesterday and realized Todd was gone. Hopefully for him, it's onwards and upwards.

August 16, 2013 / 05:46

Freddy

I'm so happy to read the comments here, because I really don't like Dean and apparently not many people do. He pretty much has the shittiest view on world and I'll never understand why this Howard Stern wannabe got a show to begin with. I've listened to the show for years, mainly because of Jason & Todd. Now that they're both gone, listening to Dean is like nails against a chalkboard. Hey Dean, I hope you aren't a shitty douche all of your life, sucks to be you. I'd rather go listen to Maryln Dennis.... oh god....blaaaarg.

August 16, 2013 / 09:26

Well done

Dean must have broken up with his girlfriend. He's all over Billie. Like seriously dean you sound like a 12 year old boy trying to hit on the pretty girl. The show feels like a waters down at work morning show these last two days. I don't care if edge gives Billie a job but please don't make her a permanent fixture of the DBS. Give Adam a shot, he's young and funny. He's what Todd was 10 years ago and dean could use him as a punching bag. I also wish meatus would come back as a producer.

August 16, 2013 / 09:36

Alisha

I wondered what happened when I heard the advertisement for Corries clothiers, Dean sucked!! I just thought Todd was on holidays. I only listen to the edge because I LOVE the music they play. I find the DBS funny 25% of the time, they just go on and on about stupid things. I can't stand Physic Nikki and just switch stations when she's on. What other stations play this kind of music?

I recently started listening to dbs last year. Ive never liked dean always seemed like a hypocrit in my personal opinion I can tell me and dean would NOT get along, I liked todd and derek a lot there probably only 2 that made me laugh now that todd is gone ill probably switch channels last 3 weeks have been horrible i actually started listening to kat and scott fox.

As I posted on the DBS Facebook page today:

"Listening to the DBS yesterday was one of the more uncomfortable experiences I've sat through on my morning commute.

After having listened to Dean bash Mad Dog and Billie for years, I can't help but think he's now nothing more than a massive hypocrite."

In a pointed effort to boycott the DBS, I listened to 88.1 this morning and was pretty pumped to be able to hear a Joel Plaskett tune on the way to work.

The show is even more terrible than it was before... I've disliked Dean for a long time, especially with his stance on the police force.

I recall one interview he did with someone from a group I cannot recall who was arguing against the police actions during the G20 fiasco we had a couple years back.

The individual who Dean was "interviewing" had some very good points and when Dean realized this, all he could do was talk over the guy, insult his character and name-calling.


Anyway, is it just me or did the guy from Cory's Clothiers sound depressed talking to Dean. That was one of the saddest sounding commercials ever

August 16, 2013 / 12:49

Moi

Sad that Todd is gone. He was a fun goof and did a lot for the show and it is definitely not the same without. My fear is that with this Billie Holiday girl, we're gonna get into the 'entettainment" news you hear everywhere else. They want a chick co host, even tho there may be other guy 'interviews'..mark my words it'll be a girl and it'll become impossible to distinguish the show from all the other morning show tripe out there, from Maureen Halloway to whoever else is the token "girl" voice talking about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston...

I listen everyday to DBS. Buffalo radio is awful. I always liked the show but Dean is a hypocritical bully, sexist, scumbag, funny though. Gonna miss Todd. Great point man. Don't think Dean can pull it off. Sounds like he's trying too hard. More Biggs and Barr for me!

It seems Dean is the one with the "issue" here. His show is sinking fast and he's on damage control. The idea of even bringing in a co-host whom he previously has ridiculed is a desperate move. I have nothing against Billie. Sounds like she's a professional. I just don't think she'll have the needed chemistry with Dean if he wants to keep the same format he's had for years.

No Jason, no Lesbian Lu, No Adrian, No Todd. Quite a drastic change of evens here. It seems Dean is the only one left, except for Derek, whose been pretty much a no-show half the time this past year.

The DBS has just sent out the "mayday" call.

August 16, 2013 / 14:43

Charlie Shnosky III

>>>The only reason Todd would go to htzfm is if iron mike retires

Todd doesn't seem like a good fit for HTZ. He's very much a Toronto guy and HTZ is a work-a-day guy's kind of station. Biggs and Barr had to overcome that at the beginning, but both of them come across as less big city than Todd. I don't see HTZ listeners warming up to a Toronto guy who drives a Porsche.

HTZ is also very much about the music. The DJs really arer rock 'n rollers. Todd doesn't fit that bill.

>>Biggs & Barr's Jamie should be removed from all media

What's wrong with Jamie?

August 16, 2013 / 16:57

jaco

Thats true charlie.
I also dont think todd would move from Toronto to St catherines.
I wouldn't if I lived in T.O
And its too much of a commute.Todd's too much in love with the Toronto nightlife to move away.

August 16, 2013 / 19:09

Alex

So to clarify, Todd was fired because there were far too many complaints against Todd. The "play" between them was retarded. It was like listening to one person talking to himself.

At least now with Derek, there's some dynamic play. Derek is his own person on the show and it's hilarious.

I hope Todd ends up flipping burgers somewhere because he's just a spoiled little bitch who got lucky with the radio gig.

August 16, 2013 / 21:41

Blind Derek

Thanks Dean, I mean Alex.

August 16, 2013 / 21:51

hey now

Admit it Dean you and your show is a complete duplicate of the Howard Stern show. You say you have never listened to his show or watched it. That to me is total bullshit. Your hole show duplicates his show and has been doing it for years. You always talk about that other station stealing your bits, but in turn you have always stolen the bits from the Howard Stern show . Who is by the way the KING of all media. Try and come up with something original for once. I know you would NEVER read anything like this on the air because you know it is true.Im calling you out on this . Yours Truly HOWARD STERN

August 16, 2013 / 23:30

Guy above is a dumbass. First you refer to the Howard Stern show as 'his show' then you claim to be stern.. Also Howard Stern is educated enough to spell it WHOLE

DBS Insider

First of all I would like to state that I am not an employee of Corus. I am a regular on the DBS. I am very close to the boys and to what happened. Dean did not fire Todd. Dean did not request Todd be fired. They did not get into an argument. In fact, Dean was really upset at Todd's departure. That is all a fact. The following is conjecture: Todd asked for a very substantial raise from management and some other little perks. He gave them an ultimatum, and they called his bluff. Now he's gone. I am little bit surprised the mods here titled this thread as "Todd is fired...". He wasn't fired. His contract wasn't renewed because of greed. There is a lot of hate aimed towards Dean blaming him, and its misdirected. He was caught in the crossfire.

That does explain Deans tweet after it happened but before everyone knew about someone "biting off more than they can chew".

That may be true DBS Insider, and maybe not. We don't know what happened because any of the individuals involved aren't giving any details.

Lemon chicken

It also doesn't explain that Todd's recent outburst outside a Toronto club. He was very intoxicated and was being asked questions by the media. He said he was fired because dean was furious that Todd wanted to go public with deans affair with Greg currasco. He says dean is an asshole and that he's a phoney

August 17, 2013 / 20:20

JohnnyD

Yeah Anonymous, I totally read that from the Corey's Clothier guy. I'm sure that was Todd's gig but the poor guy is likely tied into a contract. DBS is as immature and embarrassing lately as a groveling pervert (aka Dean), begging for sex from pretty ladies (aka Billie - often Adjua). Lame! Also, did anyone notice how Dean TRIED not to cut off Nikki so much this past episode? Seems like he's taking hints from YOU, THE LISTENER. He's still a jaded ball of dark energy so I doubt menial changes will help him. I really do feel embarrassed for him lately.

the funny this is is that People keep saying, todd should go here or todd should go there but bottom line is that Todd is not a DJ, He could maybe pull of Talk radio at best but he still couldn't be the lead. Todd was a sidekick and the basic fact is that he had it made with dean, He still got to have alot of freedom without having people realize he was not a proper radio guy. He walked away from that because his girlfriend didn't like him working mornings. Todd is a sellout and his girlfriend is a succubus

You quit on all your loyal fans Dean. I gave you 10 years, through Jason, now Todd... And for what.... Adj"s timely "huh huh" laugh? To have a guest host in Billie? The girl you said "you could cut a roast on her face" yet Friday of last week it was the happiest day of your life?
Sucks that Todd left allegedly for more money, he saved your ass numerous times as did all your listeners. Karma's a bitch. You let a lot of people down Dean.
Your true character has shown to be nothing more minuscule than your recent attempts at saving your show.
Extremely disappointed listener.

The Listener

I downloaded Fridays podcast and I gotta say the show is TERRIBLE. I got through 15 minutes of it this morning while making breakfast and I just had to turn it off.

Tried to listen to the rest of it tonight. Made it to about the 30 minute mark when I decided all this dick, vagina, gay wrestling stuff was completely boring me to death with it's immaturity.

I like Billie. I'm not sure I feel she's all that comfortable with Dean's dick talk. I think she's out of her element and I'd hate to hear her go down that dirty road with Dean.

The DBS has gone to shit. I've been sampling many of the radio stations in Canada and the US which have their talk shows also on-line. There's A LOT of good stuff out. It's embarrasing to think that CFNY 102.1 The Edge FM, one of the bigger radio stations in Toronto, the largest city in Canada, has this product as a morning show. Truly embarrassing.

August 18, 2013 / 23:25

The Listener

Btw, while listening to the show I came to the realization that all this "dick and vagina" type comedy was done in the mid to early '90's. From comedians like Richard Pryor, to Eddie Murphy, to Andrew Dice Clay.

No comedian is doing this type of comedy anymore yet it seems Dean has been trying to built his whole radio show around it for the last 10 years. Odd.

Not sure if she was told to act like that or that was what she assumed was expected of her. She's not as bad as adjwoa ( who in my opinion shouldn't even been allowed to leave her house). But I though Melanie would rival billy bit today was not good. Still better then the dean and queer show yesterday though. I'm not against gays but I don't want to listen to a gay morning show

Took 102.1 off presets. One word.... Desperation. Too bad, so sad. Keep on keepin' on with that shit eatin' grin Danger Boy et al. At the end of the day, it's about the music.

I'm very close to someone at the show (obviously i can't say who but This info is legit) Corus and Todd are now back at the bargaining table. Dean went to bat for his old buddy and told Corus to sort this shit out or he's walking away. Corus does not obviously want to lose their top morning guy so they've agreed to hear Todd's demands.

Nothing is official yet but there could be hope that Todd will return very soon

come on people i have been harsh on here but some of you are over the top. the show is bad right now but it will take time. I see Billy staying and that in the end will be Deans demise. They need time to learn to work with each other but in the end Billy got fired for a reason. Todd is gone because of himself or Dean... Jason is gone because of Dean. All things must end so Dean will be gone one day too. Im sure Dean knows this and if they force Billy on him That will bring the end closer if Dean does not adapt . I think what has not been said here is that Todd made it easy for Dean to tell Dirty jokes because we all knew Todd was the real deal and Dean had a segway to go that direction now we already know that Billy is not comfortable with that so with no base to work from Dean's dick and gay jokes will not be the same.... come on Dean you need to show some creative talent and find the funny side of life again... not the angry one...

if you read between the lines Dean has read a few emails from unhappy listeners.... im sure he gets hammered everyday.... maybe there is something to the idea that Todd may be back.

I don't think Dean is very happy with the change of circumstances. I feel Billie isn't all that comfortable with Dean's dirty comedy. There has been nothing but weirdly wired co-hosts lately. The situation has taken a toll on the show with unhappy Facebook members and low podcast upload numbers since Todd's departure. Who knows if they'll ever find a suitable co-host. I think Dean knows he's in a desperate dilemma but hates to admit it, playing it off like everything is okay by saying he gets plenty of positive emails regarding the guest hosts. Yeah right.

I don't listen anymore in the mornings, and I have uploaded a few of the podcasts. But it's extraordinarily difficult for me to enjoy any of the podcasts through it's entirety. I've tuned off quite a few of them after 10 or 15 minutes.

August 22, 2013 / 20:20

DBS is done in my books, the way this crap has gone down they have no respect for their fans. I have listened to 97.7 all week now and enjoy it very much. Music is great and no more Justin bieber jokes no more drake and rob ford all they need now is to add Todd, bye 102.1 it was fun

August 22, 2013 / 22:11

Big Cazzo

Is it true Todd has been rehired by the edge?

August 24, 2013 / 01:07


Cody

All I know is that Dean was making fun of Justin Beiber for the 100,000th time and then said "that Beiber needs to stop hanging out with the people he is hanging out with" and then Dean slipping up and called Beiber a "nigger". When I heard this I couldn't believe it. I thought for sure Dean was going to be suspended or fired but the very next day Todd was gone. So Im guessing that they had a fight after the show about this and Todd either left or was fired, But probably left.

Whatever. This mess died years ago. Go on youtube and check out whatever the 2012 GTA People's Choice awards and listen the Blundell babble and Todd just staring at him.

I was listening to the DBS podcast from back in 2011-2012. Was so funny it was the episode where they were making fun of lesbian Lou's Christmas. So so funny. (Was also the last time he was allowed to say "gunt")
But it's not 100% their fault they have really had to water down and make the show PG to be palatable for the anal people who can't understand humor.

I do really wish Dean would leave with Derek and they get Todd and do their own thing on satellite. I do very much miss Todd though. Even though Billie is doing a decent job, honestly it will never be as good. Sad but true.

August 26, 2013 / 20:19

DBS insider

This whole search for a co host is basically redundant. We've already had mum outputs meetings concerning Billy already having the job. Dean likes her and Corus want a woman in the spot. Dean agreed to a woman on the condition that he get to pick her. Also expect her to drop the billy name, dean is very pissed off at the "mad dean and Billie" jokes online. So much Infact that he has blocked callers that make the joke (he also bleeps them too)

i have to be honest... today i tuned in to the Ford / Cartmen jokes at 6:30 am and turned it over to 97.7.... painful on both stations... Jason is not the sameand Bigg's was just bad with that phony radio voice.

I am lost... I have nothing to listen to. I turned back to Mr D and I have to admit he was better than Dean.... at least I laughed at some of his jokes.

MadDean and Billy... has a nice ring to it... The funny part is it's true.

Dean was jealous and spent the last 7 years bashing Mad Dog and Billie. Now he's got Billie and we can call the show;

"The Mad Dean and Billie Show".

Does that also mean one day Dean will reveal he really is gay? He's spent the last 10 years talking about penis right? It's okay Dean, we understand. It might take a little longer for you to come out of the closet.

Needless to say, I haven't heard the show for almost a week now. Not in the mornings, not on podcast. To me, it's simply another boring man and woman morning radio talk show. BLAH.

As soon as they can find someone hipster enough they will make announcement. It will have to be someone that wears sweaters year round, wears glasses but has perfect eyes, only drink coffee from small shops. Prefers VHS to bluray and cassette tape to mp3s. They will also be required to wear faded tshirts with either the original Nintendo or a Quebec Nordics logo on them. Also not mandatory but would be a plus.

Hey Anonymous I agree. Not only is Dean a hypocrite, he's a self-centered egotistical foul-mouthed a-hole! Anyone notice how many of the people that were close with him on the show all these years are no longer with him? Gay Jeff, Jason Barr, Lesbian Lu, Adrian, and now Todd (his co-host for 10 years gone without a word). And he has an ex-wife. These were the individuals which helped build his show. And to top it off he talks crap about Mad Dog and Billie and now has had Billie on the show as a co-host multiple times? Has he gone mad? I've completely lost all respect for this idiot.

As for Amy Anonymous, she's simply a pot smoking addicted dopey dopehead who's got nothing better to do than smoke pot all day long and claim she's "medicating" herself. Oh "F" off you dumb c*nt. Don't gimme that shit you wanna be a respinsible adult and smoke some weed on your off time that's your business but when I heard her mention "medicating" children with illnesses as well as family pets with marijuana I wanted to reach through my radio and B*TCH SLAP her!

F*CK the DBS.

August 30, 2013 / 13:47

Long Time Listener

Do any of you remember when Todd first came on the show? They called him -ReTodd and Dean made him look like a clown even though Todd was doing funny things and even getting arrested for the show.

I was hopefull when Dean made Todd a proper co-host because I thought he would start giving Todd a little respect. That was not the case.

Bottom line is that Dean has always been a jackass and always will be. The show honestly sucks without Todd.

I don't care much for Todd as a person and I have heard nothing good from those who have met him, but he is funny and Dean Blundell is worst. Afterall, all the catch lines that come out of DBS were Todd's. "Toddy Tickles", "Oh Soooo Good", "Dirty Pirate Hooker" etc...

I wonder if Todd was as much of a dick before he met Dean. That many years with a guy like him can really affect your personality.

August 30, 2013 / 15:33

Todd was cool. I've been to many of the Captian Morgan events. Todd was always ready and willing to take a picture with you if you asked. He'd even throw his arm around you like you were his bud.

Dean a dick. He'd be talking on his phone or would say some smart ass remark like "who farted" when you wanted to take a pic with him. Complete dick, unless you were some groupie chick hanging all over him. Fuck Dean.

September 6, 2013 / 14:55

I've been following this thread since Todd was fired. I was curious why the Edge let him go. Mike has posted the reason for his dismissal here. Radio is a very fickle industry. It's really a ratings game. Numbers have to constantly improve or a replacement is around the corner. Corus, like other radio owners, only care about ratings and how much they can charge for ads. I imagine so many dream of being a radio host, that supply is plenty. Talent on the other is not.
Todd was refreshing and had some great input. His Todd on the street was excellent, especially when he visited the various shows in the city throughout the year. I really enjoyed the DBS show then. I have never met Todd, I have never met Dean, but have exchanged a few emails over the last few months with him. So after they released Todd, I decided to continue listening to hear how this revised show would work. I'm not a fan. Like I said talent is hard to come by. Love him or hate him, Todd was a great asset to the DBS. I emailed Dean my thoughts about this. He replied back with "later dude. Lots of other shows. Have fun". So I moved on to another morning show. It's going to be interesting to see the DBS ratings in the coming months. The majority of my friends have moved to other stations too. And I suspect if Dean's show numbers are not up, Corus will move on too. Too bad Dean doesn't get it: I am your customer. Lose your customers, and who is going to pay your salary?

From what I can see it looks like the podcast numbers on Soundcloud are down at least 30% from when Todd was co-host and the activity on the DBS Facebook page is wayyy down. Lots of upset listeners and people claiming they have stopped listening.

Doesn't look to me like anything is up overall.

Renegade

I work for a private company that is hired by tv and radio stations to conduct surveys and calculate ratings and marketshare for ad revenue purposes. Corus has been a client for years. 6 months ago they requested a detailed breakdown for the edge's morning show. The results were very low and after they made changes (firing Todd) we were asked to conduct another survey and the results were much more to Corus' liking. The main thing Corus wanted as a client was more female listeners as well as more overall listeners aged 18 to 30. Polls indicate both of those categories have increased a significant amount since Todd was removed from the program. In other words, the new DBS is here to stay for the foreseeable future

September 10, 2013 / 22:47

Also stop blaming dean. It was my company that pointed out data to Corus that showed Todd was not overly liked and 67 percent of complaints towards the show were aimed at Todd or Todd's bits. Women especially found Todd to be juvenile

So "Renegade".......they hired the firm you work for 6 months ago to conduct surveys you say?

And it's barely been a month since Todd has been gone and miraculously things have changed for the "better"? Considering they haven't even had a steady co-host for the last 3 weeks? Wow, that's a pretty impressive....errrr......surveying company you work for.

And listenership from females and those 18-30 has drastically increased? Well, what about the male crowd and those over 30?

And "67%" of complaints from past shows where aimed at Todd? Well you don't say.

By the way, does your mom know you're up past your bedtime? You have school tomorrow morning you know.......

Anonymous must clearly be part of the industry because they seem to know how everything works. Media outlets request data quite frequently. It's called a flash survey and it's done when a client needs quick data over a short period of time... But I don't need to tell you that since you know everything

And for your Info the male audience has increased 2 percent on days when Billie cohost and 1.7 percent more when Gerry Dee cohosts. Corus did not specifically request the data for listeners over the age of 30 but it's still a strong number with 38 percent if that audience being female which is up from 34 percent just 6 months ago

The DBS is not funny anymore. For the period that I listened to it, just to try it out, it was not funny. Unless they've hired comedians to write for them, the humour is not there.

And that stupid commercial with Dean talking about "how many times company XYZ has gotten me off". How lame and unoriginal is that?

I give the new DBS about 9 months. IMO, Corus will fire Dean by the end of winter, search for a new host over the summer and do a big promo push during the summer for their big announcement in Sept 2014.

"Anonymous must clearly be part of the industry because they seem to know how everything works."

- You are referring to the singular in plural. Did you get past grade 3 English?

"It's called a flash survey and it's done when a client needs quick data over a short period of time..."

- "Poof", I just pulled some random meaningless numbers out of thin air in a flash.

"And for your Info the male audience has increased 2 percent on days when Billie cohost and 1.7 percent more when Gerry Dee cohosts."

- Obviously pointing towards more than one "flash" survey. Corus sure loves "flash" surveys.

"Corus did not specifically request the data for listeners over the age of 30"

-Yes because somehow this isn't important considering that backbone of it's listeners have been the over 30 crowd. Sure.

"it's still a strong number with 38 percent if that audience being female which is up from 34 percent just 6 months ago"

- Says the 35 year old sitting on the toilet in his mom's house on his smart phone pulling some random numbers out of the air to post on this thread. Good job!

Renegade may be legit, but who is he? Does he work for the show or Corus (because they'll say just about anything to keep listeners) or are his facts true and unbiased? We don't know.

It's fair to say "surveys" take weeks if not months to complete. I find it hard to believe someone can take "flash" surveys literally days after a big change on the show and say things are moving in a positive and increasing direction. It doesn't sound like there is enough long term data to give an accurate reflection of where things are going.

What I do know is I don't like the format of the new show. I don't like the direction it's going, and I haven't listened to the show nor the podcast for three weeks. This is coming from someone who was an avid listener for the past 8 or 9 years.

Take a peek at the DBS Facebook page. You'd me amazed at all the negative comments that have been posted. And we're supposed to believe things are fine and dandy. Oh please.

All these comments on ratings leave me wondering.. where are they getting their data from because like most of you seem to agree, the DBS has lost it's edge, it's become a parody of what it once was. Then again I only have to look at some of the management decisions that put the horrific Greg Beharrel show on. Listening to DBS for more than 10 minutes sends me to 680News, the GBH show has me changing stations the moment I hear him speak. JD and FF are at best mediocre, but I can stomach those two.

I've listened to DBS since the beginning (after H+F). The cohosts have come and gone (Sandra moved to Ottawa and the other woman was pathetic). Todd had his ups and downs of course, but the show was funny, both with and without Jason. (I do miss Jason, but I miss Pete and Geets too, but you can't go back.) But now with Billie? After listening to CFNY/Edge102.1 for 30+ years, the only thing worse than her was Rick Astley in the late 80's. She is truly the mathematical reciprocal of funny.

I just listened to DBS today, 4 minutes maybe, You how in the past Dean has said 'Oh I know why shes single' and points out a woman's laugh and how he could not be around her for a certain amount of time. Billies got that laugh... annoying. And Dean is still looking for the witty comment to ride on... Sorry Dean, the Wit was fired, so you could keep a dying job. You should have stuck to your fake speeches of how you 'stand by your word', and you should have kept Todd and gone down with the ship. Imagine what would have happened.

I suppose this is the beginning of the end. DBS has lost its shock value so there's no point. Billie is just annoying doesn't have much to say,simply doesn't add value. There were way too many commercials lately so the station was doing something right. They could have toned it down, now there really is no show. Time to change the channel.

DBS hit a new low this morning when he suckered Billie into closing her eyes because he had a "big surprise", which turned out to be a couple of guys hustling the reptile show at the CNE this weekend and brought in a ball python, a snapping turtle, and some other reptiles. When Billie opened her eyes, she screamed, which got looped and which I'm sure we'll hear ad nauseum forever. Then there was yesterday's show, where we found out far more details about Billie's personal/family situation that I didn't really care to know about. According to that, Billie is basically broke, so the question is how much longer she can put up with this crap before something gives. I only listen to it because it has the same morbid fascination of knowing that there's an eastbound train and a westbound train heading towards each other on the same track and pulling up the lawn chair to watch.

And I think that by now, most people that listen know that Dean has a big wiener. At least in his mind.

My guess is that Corus is already looking at replacing the morning show and that something will happen by January.

September 13, 2013 / 12:05

Pay wave

I have a source that is very in on what's going on at the edge. It's already been decided that dean is calling it quits next march. He's got other ventures to pursue and he's ready to leave. He agreed to give Corus until march, Todd wanted out now and that's why he left. Billie was always going to be added to the morning show, this cohost search is actually for her cohost not deans. Those complaining about the show only have a few more months to whine

I feel sorry for Amanda. Maybe it's time to switch to 88.1. Hate to give up on this train wreck since I've listened to it to the days that it came out of the little yellow house in Brampton.

@Rayray, I dunno man. Isn't the DBS just a carbon copy of the Mad Dog and Billie show now? I'm a perfect example of someone who's been out of the loop for the past 3 weeks. I really don't know what is going on with the show since I gave up on it when we found out Todd won't be around any longer.

I have no interest in listening to a show with a host who, imo, is a complete dirtbag. I don't like the way he treated the whole issue with Todd, I don't like the fact he shat on Billie for years and now he has her as a co-host. I don't like the fact he states he's never listened to the Howard Stern Show yet he had Jackie Matlin on (coincidence?). I even heard Adrian was on the show last week. This after he said he'd never have him on again.

C'mon man the guy is not only fascinated with man meat but he's also full of shit.

I can confirm the post above that dean is leaving early next year to pursue other ventures. I work for CBC and dean has already been hired to become a regular on the television show mr d. He won't appear until the end of the third season but will become a regular in season 4. Dean will play a very old friend of Gerry's that is hired by Xavier academy as the new music teacher. Dean has already purchased a house out east where the show is filmed

September 15, 2013 / 22:48

Dean would make a great addition to mr d. M sure he's capable of scting and him and Gerry have good chemistry so I could see them playing old friends, I'd prefer to see Gerry have another best friend as opposed to that actor who plays bill. I fucking hate that guy and everything he does, smug piece of crap

Dean's not going anywhere anytime soon.
He and Corus both publicly have stated he's renewed on a 4 year contract. He'll be off in 2017, not before. All the "I can confirm..." 's on here have been complete bullshit

As for the Mr. D Show, Season 3 hasn't even aired, which itself is a reduced season because ratings (also available online) are brutal. IF there is a season 4 it won't be decided for a while, its also been filmed for a WHILE, well before Todd left DBS. Highly doubt it was re-jigged for a Dean cameo in the last month, come on people.

For those who pretend"Im not listening anymore",they sure know a lot about the Show.
Change is a must for creative people,if the format and everything stays the same ...they will die and I get bored.
Most on here are gossip junkies and just love to swim in shit.
I bet Dean and the gang read this stuff and get a real laugh and some of the dumb comments like mine. Those Radio Hosts have thick skin and dont give a shit what people post. Ive been listening since the Day I heard Dean Blundell instead of Humble and Fred and I still listen..its funny.
Gerry Dee on the Show...fuck'n Eh!
I thank Dean for all the Cool Shows and Guests Dean had and the time Kevin Smith came to The Sound Academy. If it wasnt for The Salads and Dean, I never would've Photographed Kevin Smith.
I never got Access from DBS or Corus but thru the Bands to Shoot the Events but come on people..you DID enjoy a lot of those Shows and Events you got shit faced and Partied your ass off?
YOU ALL SHOULD BE Thanking Dean, and 102.1 The Edge.

For those who don't know what that means and seeing how many u educated people comment on this blog it means Todd left on his own! Now get your heads out of your asses with speculation. He wasnt fired he left - his own decision. If you wanna blame anyone for the showing sucking ass now without Todd you can blame none other then Todd himself.

I also heard the Dean make the comment about Todd leaving on his own the other day all you fucks are slamming Dean and praising Todd when in fact iDean did not fire him! Todd's a diva and I wouldn't be suprised he quit because of his skanky looking new fiancé or 40 year old mid life crisis.

Today's show was the best in a long time Jeremy beggart is really funny. It's so nice not to have a woman ruining the show with her dumb comments. Why do we even give women equal rights, everything that comes out of their mouths just makes the world dumber. Billie belongs in a kitchen not on the radio. I hope Derrick returns soon it still sucks that he got suspended for his comments ( I thought they were funny). I also think it's great that dean is bring open about what happened with Todd.

It would be awesome if Todd appeared on a GTA morning show as a co-host or whatever and competed directly against Dean.

Based on the comments on this board, DBS facebook page, and other sites, no doubt in my mind, Todd would have much higher ratings and a greater listening audience than the DBS. Todd was the true entertainer and carried that show. Hopefully Todd lands another morning gig soon.

Lasted listening to this train wreck for five minutes this morning. The unfunny Gerry D was guest hosting, the usual rants about divorce stories, stories traded about Gerry D and Mad dean getting divorces, and ranting about internet trolls. And Billie just seems like she wants to find the back door out of the studio.

I have not listened to Blundell's show now for several weeks. I have moved on to another station.

Corus will figure it out soon when their ratings numbers come out and see a drastic drop in listeners, and they won't be able to charge those ad rates they did when Todd was part of the morning show. Dean's days will be numbered. Read the DBS Facebook page, so many still speaking out loud saying the DBS show sucks and tthey are moving elsewhere.

Corus will be forced to spend money to promote their new morning show when they replace Dean, and like any coach of a pro sports team, when they initially get hired, they will eventually be fired too.

If Dean had at least acknowledged legitimately why Todd was let go, I'd have some understanding for the DBS. But he waited to the very last 30 seconds of his show to utter one sentence regarding the incident. Fuck you Dlundell! I have never met you or Todd, but felt your morning show was part of my everyday morning family routine. You don't treat someone within your inner circle who was instrumental in your shows success like that.

Stop listening to crap from a bitter tool. I mean he is dumb and malignant but very insecure. I reckon the last book he read was in grade 12 english. See how many malapropisms he throws out every day - plus he looks like a gigantic asshole - and who has a face that big and obviously dumb? - a gigantic asshole.
So fucking stupid too - he throws words around that he has heard but actually never figures out their meaning - my ten year old is not dumb enough to guess from context but actually understand.
And again how could you go on and on and on about your ex like that in public - his kids get to listen to that and their kids as this shit never goes away with the internet - only a complete asshole would ever do that. And that big toxic face reminds me of a huge asshole.

Have to give some credit to the train wreck. Somehow Mad Dean managed to mangle some random rant about some hairy arm pitted women that wanted to change the national anthem into some kind of bizarre AM talk show and get some soldiers to call in.

I'll admit I still listen to DBS on occasion, but I'm very close to not listening to the show anymore. This morning was a good example why I don't listen as much as I used to. The interview with David Chilton was brutal! It was obvious Billie was out to lunch during the interview. She should have kept quiet instead of making stupid comments. "Is he the bald guy?" "Is he the Boston Pizza guy?"

I'm sorry to see this show go down the toilet. Should have called it quits when it was on top.

I liked the show most when it was Jason, Dean and Todd. It was the combined synergy that made the show. Since then the show was very plain and predictable. However I truly was disgusted when they made fun of other people's unfortunate misfortunes. This is different than bad situations made by stupid decisions. Today only 1 of 3 are left and I believe it will soon be 0. I find it fitting that they now have turned on one another. I wish them all well but they should realize that one day it could happen to them.

Karma's a bitch.

Once Todd left the show went to the shitter. Its gotten better in the past week, but only on the lowest terms. Morning show is no better than Mad Dogs at this point. Same level, almost the same people even!

Take a hint, move on with your supossed tv show, go to satellitte and see who will pay to hear this crap. Its a shadow of its peak greatness when it was dean, todd and jason.

As frankie would say: best of luck to ya!

Yeah, today's show was great about MadDean taking cheap shots about how half of the listeners in St. Catherines changed channels (all six of them, according to MadDean), referring to Jason's new gig. And Billie talking about doing reverse cowgirl.

This has now become the Value Village of morning radio.

"Value Village of morning radio"

Haha. Good one.

And I don't think Frankie will ever be featured on the show again. Some people may not care, but even when Todd was on the show it was always Dean who had no clue really about Frankie.

Fact is, I think Dean has no clue about anything!

dedicated listener

I have been a long time listener and have loved the show. I had listened since Todd left to give it a chance. I am very disappointed, but not surprised. Todd, Dean and Derek really made me laugh out loud all the time...quite literally i looked forward to my drive to work every morning they were on.

I know this thread has gone off topic quite a bit, but let me bring it back to some critical points.

Has anyone here really found the show to be hilarious like it used to be? There is no wit, sharp comebacks and jabs, or very interesting discussions anymore......just pretty boring and uninteresting for the most part. The "guest host" thing was a complete lie...he wanted billie from the start.

And I don't buy the admission from dean the other week that Todd left on his own and just wanted something new/different. If that truly was the case he would have finished on the show, maybe do a big send off..no hard feelings...but what happened he goes on vacation to never come back again and they remove every trace of him from the website asap...lol ya...left on his own free will to just simply pursue other career options. So i call liar there. And are they not suppose to be great friends? Do you unfollow your friend and have nothing to do with them after you leave on reasonable grounds? So again I call BS here too.

Todd even with contractual obligations could say, hey guys I love corus and dean, they have been great to me over the years, i just wanted to go a different direction at this point in my life...........lol no trace of that right?
Corus would not bring all this constant negative publicity on themselves by forcing Todd to be quiet if he really was just letting his contract run out to pursue something else...that is ridiculous.

And what happened to dean's twitter post when this stuff broke back in July/August...about coming back with "bigger, better fresher, newer, funnier" ramble...has he actually done anything different? any new bits? any funnier bits? Has he really done anything?

Anyways, this was the first full week I did not tune to 102.1 or download the pod cast...and you know what... I don't miss it at all. I do miss what Todd and Dean had together (along with Derek)...but not this show.

It was a good run dean, and you gave me many many many laughs over the years and I thank you for it....but, its done now and time to move on. I really would like to know for certain one day what really happened with Todd and why.

Cheers

Dedicated Listener said it well. I too got tired of all the bullshit and lies. So much so it's completely turned me off from the whole thing, literally. I haven't heard the show nor the podcast. I have no clue what's going on nor do I care. It's sad, but everything good comes to and end, eventually.

This whole incident has simply exposed the fact Dean has no talent to carry a show by himself, let alone the right chemistry with a proper co-host.

Another train wreck of a show featuring the execrable Gerry D. Towards the end, it sounded like even Mad Dean was getting tired of him and the show was basically a commercial for their upcoming Kitchener stand-up. Sadly he said he wants to come back next Wednesday, to which Derek replied something like, "okay, but not so much talking".

This is actually turning out to be so bad it's macabrely good. Kind of like the Edward D. Wood Jr. version of radio.

Blundell its over

Since todds departure ive given up and actually found a far better station in 88.1. The blundell show is so bland right now its just awfull. Ill tune in once a week for 5 mins but cant stand it. No quick punch lines, no lol moments and the same material used over and over.. The music has never been good which makes me really appreciate 88.1 who play far better rock. Time to let go dean, its clear todd was just as important to the show as u are and the show has lost alll its witt and comical value. It was a good run but take away todd and jason and dean isnt enough to carry a show

October 10, 2013 / 09:35

Tommy

I've gone back to 97.7 and I'm happy with it. I can't believe all that good rock music I've been missing since spending too much time at 102.1 listening to that sissy hipster crap. I've tried 88.1 but my reception is inconsistent since I live in the outskirts of Toronto.

I remember reading a post on the DBS facebook page which really sums up the whole situation. It's pretty blunt but ironically true. It said something like this....

"Dean, Corus took away your balls and replaced them with a set of tits".

How true :/

October 10, 2013 / 09:50

rayray

I remember years ago (I'm 55 and a veteran of the punk movement--anybody remember the "Crash and Burn" during the month that it existed?)when Mad Dean basically "overslept" and Jason was covering for him when he was barreling down the 400 making sporadic appearances on the phone.

Well, on the bright side, at least Josie Ditz head is away except for her stupid "Top 20" thing.

Yeah, I'm going over to 97.7 so at least I won't have to hear the execrable Gerry D.

Right! Exactly my point.
Clearly something nasty went down.
Post events were pretty typical.
The show was a mixed bag of mysogony and hypocrisy, and I'm glad that that negativity is over. In this age of tolerance that crap no longer flies, and Corus knows it.
Hasta lavista, Todd; hola, Billie.

The Real Truth

I'm an executive in the radio industry and can confirm that the Todd Shapiro Show will be airing on indie 88 in the new year going up directly against DBS. 102.1s Adam Ricard and former DBS producer Matt Boiselle aka "Meatus" will be joining Todd as his cohosts. Look for the popular Todd on the Street segments to appear on the new show as he retained property to those upon his dismissal at the edge. Don't be suprised to see other former DBS guests such as lesbian Lu pop up as regular guests. Todd's morning show will coincide with the debut of their strengthened signal which recently got approved by the CRTC. If your looking for a clue Todd follows indie 88 on twitter.

Hey The Real Truth, nice comeback. Usually the word "peasant" is attributable to someone at the CBC and their sense of entitlement. Kind of suspect that this is the execrable Gerry D at work here trying to drum up some interest in a dead skunk. Especially since he's supposed to be on the DBS show tomorrow. I may just listen to it one last time. Alternatively, maybe Ron James can be another guest co-host if this doesn't work.

Who cares. Just give it up already. ou could argue that the show was crap when Todd was on but at least I found it entertaining. I tuned in to the first few shows with Mad Dean and Billie and it's just unappealing crap all around.

I haven't tuned in for over a month and I don't miss it at all. The DBS does not exist in my books.

RIP DBS

Got to admit I've continued to listen since todd left hoping and thinking it would eventually get better given time but the show is horrible now this morning was especially painful when they played the clip of the "special" prim king and queen. They just played a clip there was nothing to it like in the past no comments no punch line nothing (not that I condone making fun of the disadvantaged) it was just odd and ackward. I checked out the Biggs and Barr podcast the past couple weeks and I have to admit its no DBS in its prime but it's much better then I thought i actually find myself laughing unlike the new DBS. Dean you f'd up a good thing.

The reason that I continue to listen to this train wreck is because I've listened to CFNY when they first signed on back in the little yellow house in Brampton and I have an affection for the station. What amazes me is that Corus continues to let the morning show be Mad Dean's personal soap box; first, his divorce lawyer was a recurring guest, and this morning a former crown prosecutor turned defense attorney was on, so my guess is that he somehow defended Dean since Dean is such an avid fan of X-copper. Billie just seems to float around in the background doing fake laughs like Ed McMahon used to do with Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show" when Mad Dean hurls misogynist insults at her. Mad Dean just lashes out at everyone that disagrees with him. Amongst others, this morning's cheap shot was at Indy 88.1. Still can't figure out why anyone would pay money to listen to him and the execrable Gerry D in Kitchener. Maybe the two of them can share the one laugh that they'll hopefully get. Should be a wonderful night of divorce jokes. Maybe they should get a Lenny Bruce dvd as their training wheels.

Derek should take over. He's the only one left that has any talent.

I guess that it's Karma that Allan Cross was on George Strombo's show the other night.

Actually, it would probably be entertaining to head out to the "Everything To Do With Sex" show this weekend and do a "Todd in the street" type of thing to see which troglodytes won their tickets on "Wha' Happen?"

"The definition of "class".

So the DBS is given some award by some organization called "topchoiceawards" whom I and I'm sure you have never heard of.

My question is this; how much did the DBS pay out to get that silly recognition?

It's quite obvious the term "class" in this situation applies to some very, very low standards. But then I wouldn't expect anymore from a bunch of pot smoking, booze-guzzling factory working hillbillies who listen to this mockery of a radio show.

The show is horrible. Where does CFNY want to take this show? Sure, it's been around for 10 years, but that's 10 years too long. He's pissed off quite a few listeners, gone through MANY co-hosts, and has had numerous run-ins with the CRTC. It's obvious it's not going places. And with the recent departure of Todd, I don't think the fanbase has grown. In fact, I'll bet it's gone in the other direction.

CFNY does not have any vision. I think they seriously need to re-examine their programming (both the morning show and their music) and make some changes. I would seriously hope they start with Dean Blundell. He has absolutely nothing more to offer the CFNY listeners.

Morning all...well, this isn't about wha' happened to Todd, per se, however, I received an email this morning re: stuff to do in TO. The first Gentlemen's Expo is coming to TO on Nov 22-24....hosted by: Mr. Todd Shapiro
Here's the link folks: http://www.gentlemensexpo.com/
Just thought I'd share...I am a fan of Todd, like many of you, I thought he (and Jason, when he was still around)brought the show together as he provided much of the humour!
Anyway, I'm not afilliated with the TGE at all, just thought it was cool that Tickles is out and about!

Haven't tuned in for months now. Certainly won't be with the recent "Ford" rehash now. So sick of listening to "video clips" 18 times in a row. You're on the radio ass hat...listeners don't care if you're watching a video on line and giving shitty 'joke' commentary.
Deans resorted to watching Tosh.0 and replaying the audio from internet memes over the radio...so tiring.

Billies fake laughter is so obvious its hard not to see she is desperate for a job. Even Derek is booooooooooringgggg.

Heard a nice dis on "Edge 102" the other morning on the Scott Fox morning show! Even that crap is better than the current state of the edge's embarrassment of a morning show.

Will you stop being a fucking douche please. Something more than just a contract not being "renewed" there. That whole situation is clouded in mystery since. Todd was m.i.a for the later half of August. Apparently he was "on vacation". Then, when Dean couldn't ride the lie anymore they simply announced Todd would no longer be on the show". He was pretty much given a 2 minute farewell for a 10 year service. Since then and even now most of us haven't even heard from Todd.
Then who happens to pop up on the show, the very person Dean had been poking fun at for years. Dean's kinda like a buddy you used to have back in high school that would always discourage you from trying to go out with a certain girl. Always telling you she's a loser. Then, months later you find out your buddy Dean is "hitting" that.
Fuck Dean and fuck his shitty lame-ass show.

The show has been on fire the last few weeks. Yeah losing Todd was a shock but I realize now his act was stale. Billy hasn't always been on target but she is getting better and dean seems to be less of a dick now. I think him and Todd had been fighting for a while because the early half of this year he was just a grumpy asshole. Wednesdays show in particular had mr in stitches, the rib ford material was classic and Gerry dee may be one if the funniest men Alive

Dean Blundell's show sucks hard.
The personalities they have there now are the worst. Derek has no substance and has nothing to contribute. His little clips from before were bearable because he wasn’t a part of the show.
And Billie came from a shitty show herself. The Mad Dog and Billie show, what a joke. They really pissed me off, it was like listening to high-school students put on a show. She is not funny and just a “yes-man” or “yes-woman” to Dean. And now she is doing Hollywood news on the air, lame.

It's good to hear Todd's voice again. I've heard a few of the first radio shows with Billie but didn't find her interesting, and Dean isn't good enough to carry a radio show by himself, so I gave up on the DBS show a couple months ago.

The Dean Blundell show has always sucked, they have always picked people apart and made fun of people with their vocabulary of a 7th grader. They suck so bad and Deans mouth is disgusting, he thinks he was Gods gift to the world but now look at him, he is going to be so lonely. People like that always end up single and alone, they don't have any respect for themselves so how would be impossible for them to ever have respect for anyone else. Imagine if somebody talked to him and treated him the way he has treated so many people over the years???? Hecan dish it , but can't take it. If the rest of of the world said the things and have done the things he has done, they would be in jail. That whole morning show sucks and i hope it comes to an end soon...they should have done it years ago. it's ruining the rest of the EDGE, because the music and the other DJ's on the Edge are fantastic.

And i am suuure the only reason he talked about penis size so much and picks on people about their penis size is probably because of his own complex. You can tell just by how bitter and nasty he is that he has a major chip on his shoulder and he has to take it out on everybody else..like an unhappy soul.I am glad his wife got away from him, hopefully she will meet a gentleman now.....He has picked apart and abused thousand of people and karma comes around!

Mike, you pretty much hit the nail on the head. Blundell caters to a certain demographic, of which in the area and surrounding, is dying out (listen to the show and the type of callers that call in, more suited for a bunch of yahoos in their leotards drinking beer in some shack up north). I don't see this demographic growing at all and it's only a matter of time before he, and his beer-chugging, pot-smoking dopey friends are booted off the air and left out in the cold.

Q102.1 will one day be a sole east Asian radio station talking about Bollywood and Bhungra music. Get ready, Brampton is fastly encroaching!

2. Mad Dean went ranting about how people like to diss him (so I'm assuming that he's referring to this board).
3. Then Mad Dean starting ranging about how someone sent him an e-mail referring to "Jerry D" instead of Gerry D. Or maybe Dee. Who cares anymore?

Overall i do not have a favourable outlook of 102.1, and listen to other stations more frequently; 103.3,107.9 (especially the Loaded and Indie shows!!),94.9,97.7 and of course now 88.1.Hope all these stations play more independent CANADIAN music, and why the Hell is there not at least 1 dedicated daily metal show on any of these stations?!?!?

Listening to Deano is like trying to enjoy reconstituted strained prunes...gives me the runs. I left this lame Deano the Dinosaur show and am now enjoying XM Radio. I would rather pay for decent content than get free baby pee pee and poo poo content. This radio station is out of business and doesn't even know it yet...but they will soon when they get their rating. It takes forever and a fortune to get one new listener and less than a nano second to lose a listener read advertising dollars flying out the window. Yes Deano your ego is about to go piffff. Your radio career is over dude. Go back to Seneca College and take the broadcasting program and learn how a professional really works the airwaves. IF you have the qualifications to even gain access to the program. Failing that perhaps mortuary program at Humber is more in keeping with your talents.

Hey guys, been following some for the comments here since Todd left and agreed with many that Todd did not leave on his own accord to pursue other opportunities as was suggested by the edge/ Dean. And I must say that based on the fact that Todd still is unemployed, and just acts like a stupid kid on his twitter...I am more convinced then ever that he was lazy at the show and probably wanted alot more money and they said take a hike. It looks like he screwed up his place on the show and the opportunity he was given.

Dean doesn't know where to draw the line. He opens his big dirty mouth in the name of "comedy" and somehow manages to offend someone of some body of peoples. Then he gets reprimanded by the CRTC, makes an apology, and does the same thing over and over. This has been going on for a number of years and as a former listener of the show I've become completely turned off by it. So much so I've completely stopped listening to the station altogether.

It's about time some changes are made and this is a great start. Maybe the Edge can get back to bigger and better things. The DBS is a dark cloud looming overhead.

Hopefully the station management won't repeat the same mistakes. I'd like to program 102.1 back into my radio presets.

Although seriously Derek you should know better.
Total bully crap really.
It's such a bad un-Canadian show.
Corus backed the wrong horse three times.
Get these knobs off the air.
Dean should be selling cars soon.

I feel sorry for Derek. I mean, from listening to the show in the past, he's a church-going dude with a wife and 2 young kids. When he first came on air he was pretty reluctant to sling around mud like Dean does. I'm sure Derek is not a complete angel but knew where to draw the line on the air when it came to certain topics. Then Dean started to blur those lines for him.

I met Derek once. Was a very nice and genuine dude. Too bad he got dirty mixing it up with a PIG like Dean.

Only thing that's real

I'm friends with Sean on the morning show and he told me that Corus basically told dean Derek Sean Marlowe and adjwoa that there services would be terminated over this while mess. The station is apparently keeping Billie though her and Adam will take over morning duties

Now where am I going to get my morning fix about hearing about uncircumcised penises being ugly and listening to the moronic Gerry D?

Farewell Edge, welcome Indy 88.

Hey, @only thing that's real, apparently Adjwoa didn't get the message because she was on air this morning.

If the DBS is a dead horse I'd still be kicking the sh*t out of it!

I hope the show is cancelled for good, not much to listen to after Todd was sacked by Dean. Have recently switched to Humble and Fred and never looked back at the DBS. Get their daily podcast and find out what real entertainment is like - these guys have been, and still are, the best radio hosts in Toronto.

Bout f'n time. The DBS is a frankenshow stitched together by a rag-tag bunch of has-beens and nobodys. Hope this "suspension" is permanent.

Time for some fresh voices and fresh material.

Looks like Todd will tell his side of the story when his lawyers clear him to do so. Look at Toronto Mike's latest posts.

Karma's a bitch. A year to two ago Mad Dean used to lecture Shirley Phelps of some southern Baptist Church about her protests against funerals for gays and Mad Dean gets canned for homophobic remarks. Pothead calling the kettle black.

Adam is doing a great job, but I guess filling a void isn't that hard.

@Toronto Mike, so my guess is that Corus will continue to pay him under contract but keep him off of the air until it runs out? Adam is doing a great job and I miss Psychic Nikki, but what are the execrable Gerry D, and Mad Dean's divorce lawyer doing now?

And why will anybody care? Poor Billie is collateral damage. All Indy is do is recruit some talent and the Edge 102 morning show is dead except for the free Sugar Beach tickets.

Gee, the CBC is advertising the Gerry Dee new year's eve show. Anyone want to take bets that Mad Dog will show up in a cameo?

I bet fake Dean is sucking Mad Dog's dick right now hoping to land a co-host gig on 99.9 Virgin.

I'm sure Dean will let us know if Mad Dog is cut or un-cut.

This show is dead in the water. I'd be surprised if the people at Chorus bring it back. There is a negative cycle with this show and it keeps repeating itself, only getting worse in the last few months.

If they do bring it back, they'll need to cut Deans balls off and muzzle his mouth. Sit him in the broadcasting chair where everyone can look at him like Hannibal Lecter while he squirms and moans. Are they planning to send him to radio "rehab"? That would be a complete joke and won;t work.

There is no option but to can this show and put closure to it. It had a good run.

All this ranting about dean. What a joke he is awesome at what he does and the show ill admit sucks now but not at deans fault. He has continued to push the boundaries and always taking the heat for it. Obviously the people in charge have told him to change the format and I'm 100 percent sure it wasn't deans fault. Change or be let go. At this day and age everyone needs job security. I'm sure if assholes didn't complain about everything he does it would still be the same funny show as in the past! I'm just sick of hearing everyone blame dean as I'm sure he'd rather it be as it was and it was really good back in the day

@Jay, I hope this is sarcasm or, if not, at least a cry for help to get out of Mom's basement. At least Adam and the NKOTBs don't have to resort to bringing in divorce lawyers for the morning show and someone finally figured that there's life beyond Nirvana and the Red Hot Chilli Peckers. Wait, that's a Dean joke and Edge 102 seems to finally be feeling the pressure from Indy. Gotta love Alan Cross.

Jay, Dean IS the reason the show has TANKED. Look around, anyone who had ANY character that was on the show in the past is GONE.

Wake up.

I liked the show for years. I like Humble and Fred before too. The DBS really fell apart in the last year and I am sad to see it go but I think it was time. Past its due date. I'm going to try some new stations, Edge has lost me as a listener for now. Hopefully I can find a station without the Spence Diamond commercials.
