Wil comes from the U.S. (Chicago). Maybe that's why he gets confused as to who is born where. He says lots of dumb things. So does Jason Strudwick but with far less criticism. My guess is that's because Fraser sounds smug (to some people) and Strudwick doesn't.

I agree. Whoever writes commercials for these guys has zero creativity. Their commercials are bad, and to me, take away from the sponsors that spend their money.

I don't mind the Sherwood Park car guy with the accent...and Oodle Noodle is fine. But the commercials where guys are screaming "WATCH IT...WATCH IT." make me put on the MP3s.

And really "Play more tables and games....don't be a fool...play more pool..yeaaaaaaaaaah."

Companies often have an idea of what they want. They say we want this, we want this tag line, and we want it to be soft, subtle, aggressive, sexy etc.

By far the worst, most annoying commercials I've heard on any radio station in Edmonton

They are bad, no question, but they probably seem worse because, on a talk station, you end up hearing more and in likely a higher volume, then you would on a standard music station.

Does that half hour long broadcast on 630 ched every Sunday about how everyone should sell their house and take out as big a loan as possible from the bank to buy rare coloured diamonds count as a commercial?

because that is the worst / most annoying.

I had a discussion with one of the on air personalities and he pointed out to me, that his show and several others buy time on the station-- he signs a check and it is up to him to sell the time. He did say that when the last agreement ended they tried to double his rates, he happened to have in writing a better offer from ched and so he only got a 50% bump in the rates.

The team is not in charge of all their shows

Going a different direction from the commercials.

I hope one day tsn1260 can get Bob staffer back so he can speak his mind and not be biased. I'm not the biggest fan of Dan tencer but they should offer him as a show as well. An entertaining show would be tencer and Gregor together debating against each other.

The worse for me is the stupid propaganda commercials.

For the longest time it was the cell phone companies complaining about the government. Then it was the government saying the cell phone companies are greedy. Now it's the Redford government being out of the country all the time and some stupid one about how so woman and her friend took a smoke from their parents purse.

I can't pick up the station at work, so I have to stream them, at least for the morning, and that commercial and the "sales meeting minute" are the only times I actively take my headphones off.

Heard Gazdic on the Gregor show earlier.

Good interview and well worth listening to on the 1260 site.

And maybe some may not agree, but I think Gregor gives some of the best interviews out there.

I do not agree. I think that there are times during his interviews when he is far more interested in hearing himself talk rather than listening to the answers that he gets to his questions.

I bet he would love to interview himself. Then he could do all the talking.

I think Gregor is an excellent interviewer. The only time I don't enjoy his interview segments is when Brownlee is co-hosting. Robin's long-winded preambles before getting to the actual question have put many an interview subject and audience member to sleep.

I honestly have never heard a person lead someone to an answer more than Brownlee. It takes him 60 seconds to spit out a question. He's just not cut for radio.

That's because he is used to putting his thoughts in writing and yes he is a poor choice for radio. Stick to newspapers and blogs Brownlee.

Gregor has one big problem in his interviews. He has a list of notes or questions prepared it seems and asks the person a question. The person answers the question and adds some things to the answer that actually covers questions Gregor had intended to ask. Gregor then proceeds to either not listen to his interviewee or ignores the answer and asks the next question on his list.
