I know what I'll be listening to while running along the lake this afternoon! Looking forward to being outside and listening to what I know will be an excellent conversation.

Why the fuck am I getting emotional as Mike's talking about Freddie P? Jesus, I love Mike Stafford.

I need an unpaid intern!

Nice job! I've always been a big fan of Stafford and he didn't disappoint. Seems like a genuinely nice guy - without any ego. A rarity considering his talent.

Great Listen

Thanks Mike, for the hospitality and getting some stuff out about my exit from The Spirit.
Sorry about the dry throat....four hour morning show killed me.

I'm the shitty host who should have paused the recording to get you a glass of water.

You were awesome.

Thanks Mike.....and three hours later, the man responsible for75% of Simpsons laughs dies. RIP Sam Simon.

Fantastic episode. Stafford was a great guest.

Fantastic interview. Mike Stafford is an amazing host and the best we have in the GTA.

That was very moving and introspective, especially back to the cfny days, where I frankly don't remember him at all. The on-air talent, Pete & Geets, Paterson, yes. The Wankees. Where's part 2, the CFRB days?

@Stafford, You realize now your going to have to do the Producers podcast now, I'm sure Ryan Bonnar will not let it go until you do. :)
@TOmike Great interview, I've followed Stafford when he read the news on P&G. Lost touch when he worked at the "old folks home" but picked him right back up when he went on air at AM640 .

Another great interview Mike, and its Mimico

Great job, Mike and Mike.

I can finally rest knowing why Freddiep was fired as Mikes best man! Truly well done, always liked Stafford, even more now.

Good to hear Fred's podcast regarding our conversation, Mr. Boon. I sensed that Fred really wanted to address this stupid issue about the wedding but the other guy on the pcast kept interrupting. And Freddie, about me cancelling at the last minute, this is what you wrote the day before our lunch on Facebook messenger:

Hi Jodi.. Feel terrible but I have to cancel tomorrow. Something has come up. I'd love to reschedule.

Shit happens. And with two boys aged 8 and 3, dad weekends, 60 mile separation from Jodi, just..never got to happen. Too bad. It's all silly and I truly appreciate you understanding my apologies as a dick....the other guy and sound effects aside.


March 11, 2015 @ 6:13 PM


Yup- interrupting is what "the other guy" loves to do. Eileen calls him on it occasionally but he doesn't get the hint.

The other guy is why I stopped listening.

March 11, 2015 @ 7:54 PM


Catching up, this is fantastic. For some reason didn't expect Stafford to open up so much. Up there as one of the most earnest.

March 24, 2015 @ 5:44 PM


Forgot to mention: great Marsden impression.

March 24, 2015 @ 5:48 PM


Great interview with The Staff!

Just getting into these podcasts. Stafford sounds the same as he does doing his show, which is why we love this cranky, super smart distiller of the Greatest Generation of which I am part of. Still can't get over how 1010 got rid of his show and replaced him with boredom and irrelevance.
