    What to Watch . . . What to Watch?

    Have you ever spent thirty minutes or longer scrolling through the available titles on Netflix or other streaming platforms? Have you walked away from the experience still not knowing what to watch? It can be daunting choosing a program amongst the hundreds of possibilities. You don’t want to waste your time, but how can you […]

  • Strange Ice Hills at the Beach

    I decided to stay active this winter. Normally, when it starts to get cold, I hang up my running shoes for the season. I don’t like running outside when it gets below 5°C. The funny thing is, it’s been warmer than that several times this winter and I have taken full advantage of that by […]

  • DJ Chase March - A Jim Gaffigan Mixtape

    Blending Comedy & Music (DJ Mix)

    Jim Gaffigan is one of my favourite comedians. I had the crazy idea of mixing some of his material with songs that complimented it. It all started with cake. Gaffigan has a hilarious bit that I thought would be even more funny when mixed into Flo Rida’s “Cake”. When I dug deeper, I found a […]

  • Life's Music

    New Release from the Vaults

    Back in 2005, I produced, wrote, and recorded an E.P. entitled Life’s Music. I never did anything with it and it has sat in my vaults for over ten years. I think it is finally time to unleash it. No one has heard this, until now. I hope you enjoy it. It starts out with […]

  • Pictorial Radio History Book

    Canada’s Rich Radio History

    A Pictorial History of Radio in Canada by Sandy Stewart I found this book at a school library where I was supply teaching last month and it called to me. It’s an old book but the history in absolutely fascinating. I highly doubt that anything like this exists in a more modern work. That’s probably […]

    WIB Rap Radio – Frozen Flows

    We had an ice storm Tuesday that shut most of Southern Ontario down. Several school boards, universities, and places of business closed their doors, including Western University. With the campus shut down, and no school for me to teach, I decided to record my show from home. This is the Snow Day edition of Word […]
