  1. In my humble opinion… Two factors contributed to the decline in CHED Radio’s ratings. The poor quality of hosts in their daytime line up, and the Oilers not making the playoffs. Corus cuts are also contributing. to a poor performance. I prefer to listen to the sister station; CHQR during the daytime.

  2. Back in the Rutherford days, I used to listen to Rutherford (and the other Daves) on CHQR just to get away from a certain sportscaster that seemed to be “on” 24 hours a day. I realise that there’s no better deal than a Crosstown deal and that Tony Roma’s was the place for ribs, and my teeth could be fixed through Quick Card while my furnace ducts were being cleaned by Modern Power Vac. I still remember those spots along with the names of the advertisers. I made it my life’s ambition to boycot these sponsors. To this day. I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.
