As talk radio legend Charles Adler gets ready to leave the Winnipeg airwaves for good, Dan & Kenton re-visit their discussion about what the future of the radio industry should look and sound like. Also, Kenton finally gives up on True Detective while Dan goes clear on Scientology.
Dan pitches his idea for the “CJOB Podcast Network” while Kenton pitches what would be the first “R-rated” Star Wars film. The Nerds also get into Star Wars toy collections, OITNB, and mourn the loss of Sir Christopher Lee.
Dan reacts to comments from last week’s episode on the (possible) death of radio and ties it in nicely to Monday’s Apple Keynote at WWDC. Kenton does his best Jimmy Iovine, aided by their similar hairstyles.
Kenton & Dan mourn the death of the Winnipeg edition of Breakfast Television, which is to be replaced by the highly successful radio show Wheeler in the Morning with Philly & Rena. It’s a huge risk, but as the Nerds relate, CityTV really had nothing to lose.
Dan & Kenton celebrate their triumphant return to Red River Radio studios by talking about the state of radio, new Star Wars rumours, and the merits of Meet Joe Black
It’s funny where a conversation can take you. This week, Kenton and Dan fully intended to talk about the ongoing issue of Net Neutrality, and how it will affect the future media landscape.
But….they didn’t get to it.
Instead, there’s an interesting discussion about radio and television ratings, a wrap up for the first half of Mad Men season 7, Levar Burton’s Kickstarter campaign, and Dan wises Kenton up to one of the greatest WWII movies of all time.
