Five years ago today, I was in the room while Humble and Fred recorded their first podcast. Well, it wasn't really their first podcast, simply their first with an actual commitment to record daily. They're moving their studio to The Queensway, just east of Islington. I biked over today to
I appeared on Humble and Fred's show this morning, talking Blue Jays fever and spinning a few retro Jays songs. It was great fun chatting with the guys about the three songs they put together in the early 90s. Here's my segment. You can hear the entire episode of Humble

Last night, at the Horseshoe Tavern, I attended a party for Humble and Fred's 25th anniversary. John Tory showed up, I finally cornered George Stroumboulopoulos about coming on my podcast and Ash from USS (hear him on episode 95 of my podcast) performed a sweet acoustic version of Yin Yang.
