The interviews with former/current Toronto journalists always reminds me I that bought 2 newspapers a *day* for probably 20+ years. Now i don't even think of a traditional paper as a way of getting news, sports, business, or entertainment news; something I never thought I'd say. I always loved Ben's music reviews as I anticipated buying the latest CD's.

He lost me a bit early on, but was thrilled to hear about his favourite bands being Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain. (There was a fourth I didn't catch.) Really looking forward to his return to kick out the jams!
