Dean Blundell Satellite Blips

freeplayrangerPeriodically, the referral stats for this site reveal a nugget of truth that hasn't hit the mainstream press. Most recently, this happened on July 14th when I detected, seemingly out of nowhere, a series of visitors who Googled "humble howard fired" and "humble howard leaves mix". Where there's smoke, there's often fire, and I wrote this entry about it. The rest, is history.

All morning I've been getting hits from people Googling "dean blundell satellite radio", "dean blundell fired" and "dean blundell moving to satellite". I don't know anything about it, and a visit to the Edge 102 morning show page doesn't reveal anything's out of order, but these searches only started this morning and they're coming from several different ip addresses. Again, this might not be anything, but sometimes where there's a little smoke, there's a fire.

Did anyone listen to CFNY Edge 102.1 this morning? Are these searches just a natural extension of the many "humble and fred satellite radio" searches that end up on this page? I haven't been getting hits from people wondering if Roger, Rick & Marilyn were on their way to satellite, but then again I've never written about them, until now...

I was listening to Dean Blundell this morning and they said that they are going to satellite tomorrow morning (Aug. 16th) and that they'll be on channel 69 (apparently they fought to be on that channel).

A caller then called in and said that they were disappointed to which Dean replied "just go pick up a satellite radio".

The confusing thing is that I can't find anything online confirming this even though they gave a final goodbye at the end of their show this morning.

Very puzzling.

I'm guessing it's a stupid joke by the crew, because their web page even includes "the news according to Jason" dated today and there's a schedule of events posted for tomorrow's show.

Very puzzling indeed...

For a goof I checked out the XM radio website and oddly enough their channel listings go from 68 to 70.....there's no 69

........yet.

When I checked Mike's link earlier in the day to the 102 website I didn't see the XM banner at the top... It's there now... maybe the show will be on FM and XM??

I remember when Humble and Fred moved to AM 640 they were on both 640 and 102.1 for a period of time.

Perhaps the plan is to do the same here. Simulcast this show on both 102.1 and satellite until 102.1 introduces a new show. I'm just speculating, of course...

It was obvious he was joking. Just making fun of Mad Dog and Billy.
Come on you douchbags, realize when a joke is told.

I was right outside the Damn station when they where bitchin' out this guy (Didn't know who it was' Turnes out it was dean) telling him on Live-Air that they were gonna' fire his sorry ass, (and they were serious 2). I thought, this poor guy, they must have just hired this guy, he looks pretty dissapointed (they only emberrased the guy on live air; telling him "Tell us why we shouldn't fire you, or keep you for another week"...and "you screwed up, do you think this is funny, 'cus were not laughin"...idiots. anywhoo, I hope this answers some of your questions. I was looking inside the window of the station while this was all happening and thought "awkward...i'm leaving"...
