PJ Fresh Phil and Snit on YTV

memory

YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

I was always a little old for YTV.  It launched late in 1988 when I was fourteen years old and by the time The Zone debuted I was way too old to be interested.

I didn't watch The Zone, but I was familiar with it.  It first aired in the early 90s and they had PJs instead of VJs.  The first PJ and the only one I ever knew by name was Phil Guerrero who went by the name PJ Fresh Phil.

As you'll see in this clip, PJ Fresh Phil's co-host was Snit, a television with dentures.  I knew PJ Fresh Phil in the real world as the guy I used to mosh with at The Phoenix on Monday nights.
