Driving the streets of Toronto the past few days I've noticed a new ad campaign for Humble and Fred's morning show. For over a decade the Humble and Fred Show, mornings on CFNY Edge 102, was the radio program I awoke to. I enjoyed their folksy charm, sense of humour and the tunes played in between. Throughout the 90s there was no better Toronto radio show in the mornings.
A few years back Humble and Fred were moved off of Edge 102 and on to Mojo Radio, a new sister station that was all talk. For a little while I still tuned in a little here and there but I often denied it for Howard Stern or tunes. Then, Humble and Fred moved to Mix 99.9 and I haven't heard a word out of them since. Still, I can see those ads plastered throughout the city and remember fondly the morning radio of my formative years.
