I'll bet the Edge 102'ers would get smoked in a ball game but would win in a game of Name That Tune.

Hopefully no one picks Toronto Mike for Name That Tune ;)

(I wouldn't have gotten a single one of those either.)

Too soon, man... too soon.

That's what you get for making us listen to half a phone conversation for ten minutes!

I'm glad you brought that up... my apologies to all! When it's not a numbered episode of Toronto Mike'd I simply don't implement the same quality control! :)

@Toronto Mike: I got the Eagles "Those Shoes" right away. "They Did a Bad Bad Thing" I got, just didn't know who sang it. Martha And The Muffins I would've never, ever got, same as the Hip.

Hmm. Just noticed this...Strombo Monday and Tuesday from midnight to 8:30? You sure it wasn't midnight to 5:30? Cause H&F came in at 5:30.

In my defense, I did get the songwriter for the Martha and the Muffins track, as well as the Chris Isaak, Eagles and Hip. I knew it was The Hip right away, I just couldn't come up with the non-single track on Music @ Work, one of my least favourite Hip albums.

It's based on this:

Maie Pauts is Ryan Goins - or maybe Pillar - and Brother Bill is Kawasaki.

Jays lineup would dominate the summer, while CFNY would fare better in October.

January 22, 2016 @ 3:37 PM


Bluejays for me. That was a treat to watch this year.

I think this is an apple and oranges comparison though. How does the edges 97 line up stack up against the mighty Q, HTZ fm etc in 97?

January 22, 2016 @ 5:21 PM


I'm missing something, what's all the "name that tune" reference?

Everyone who subscribes to Toronto Mike'd will periodically be pushed bonus audio. I call these Rapid Faxes. There's been two so far, and the "name that tune" is explained in the second one.

It's as apples and oranges as it gets. I think it's meant as a light jestful question. :)

Da bearsssss....

Who would win in a fight against Josh Donaldson...and Humble Howard? That's right, Coach Ditka.

January 24, 2016 @ 5:06 PM


1997 CFNY for sure. Mid 90's was when they hit their apex (for me anyways).
