I am so damn smitten with her laugh.

My bucket list would be to drink beer and bust chops with her just to hear her laugh at my jokes.

Great Chat. I enjoyed it. See Mo is just the same off the air and on.

Loved it - although it was way too short! You guys were just getting warmed up.

Ha I appreciated her quick reference to Runs in the Family by Pursuit of Happiness.

Jealous, worked in those areas and never seen Moe ha.

Listening again, I do sense a slight bit of tension when you bring up Derringers name. I know she credits him and speaks fondly but there is a moment when she's chatting about her departure from Q and the tone slightly changes. I may be reading into this more than it needs to be but I have a hunch....

She was annoying on Mix 99.9 years ago, she was annoying when she was doing the same old schitck on multiple radio stations and she was annoying on Q107 - both with JD and in the afternoon. I am sure she is annoying on CHFI now but luckily I don't listen to that station.

I am sure she thinks that she is funny but the silly plays of words are too cheap for me.

Mike, Great interview with Maureen. I have to agree with comments by Beatts. I always felt that something was up with her leaving Q. And after hearing what she said about JD, I am convinced of it. She called him an "Alpha " male a few times and there seemed to be some resentment on her part with the addition of Jennifer Valentyne. She mocked the promos that JD was doling leading up to his announcement and Mo made reference to Jennifer being JD's "dream" girl. All said with a slight edge to her voice. You would never hear JD utter such comments about Mo. He's a class act. I'm disappointed in MO's comments. So Beatts, your hunch is right...something happened there.

Love Mo, and a great interview. Radio is a tough gig, I think she may have found a good compatible landing at CHFI.
All the best Mo.

Am I the only commenter that finds this woman annoying? So glad I don't listen to radio.

Do your best to get the King in.

The ball is in JD's court.

I've got a bunch of these to catch up on! Enjoyed this one. Found her voice to be a bit nasally though. I don't know if she was sick, or just because she had just come off a shift.

Ted Woloshyn's name came up briefly in this episode and, I believe, #218, Craig Venn's. Saw this piece was posted the other day at FYIMusicNews by his musical "sidekick" Bill King:
