Herb Tarlek with Don Daynard and Erin Davis on CHFI

RadioYouTube 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.

As a kid, I loved WKRP. I think that's how I first fell in love with radio. One of the many great characters on WKRP was Herb Tarlek, the plaid suit wearing advertising account executive who couldn't score a big account or with Jennifer Marlowe.

Back in 1997, the character Herb Tarlek was resurrected for a television ad campaign promoting the CHFI morning show with Don Daynard and Erin Davis.

My wife worked at CHFI for three years between '94 - '97 so I got a real kick outta that- even though it bastardizes my favourite show of all time and then reason I got into radio. Don was an old hoot and Erin is a doll.

Good times... Good times.
