There's some great behind-the-scenes footage of Humble and Fred recording their CFNY morning show in 1994 in this clip. Also, bonus Dan Duran, Jason Barr and Marla West.

Ahhh! The old WKRP "Real Families" episode joke. In the episode, a reality show follows Herb Tarlek and his family for a week. When interviewed, everyone from the station says the same thing about Herb. I believe it was, "He's a great man, a hard worker and an excellent father"... Something like that.

Fun to see young Jason Barr the way I remember him (all full of dreams) back in the Ryerson RTA days.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike


Jason Barr sans Scottish accent!

Does anyone know what happened to Marla West?

And don't forget the bonus annoying Tim Hortons commercial at the beginning of the clip.

The Lysol spot reminds me of SCTV's Pirini Scleroso.

I couldn't help but notice the relative lack of computer screens amid the piles of carts and stacks of paper. It was every on-air host and/or producer's nightmare to have them fall on the floor. I only know that from second-hand accounts.
