Long-time fan of Psych Sunday, was hoping they'd continue it with a new host.  They did have it on overkill for a while with the two-hour Psychedelic Brunch on the weekdays and 12 hours of Psych Sunday a few years ago.  I could only handle so much of The Guess Who and The Band because there was very little Cancon from that period.  And counting Joni Mitchell as classic rock was really pushing it.
   Neil Young, April Wine, Rush, Lighthouse, just to name a few Canuck acts from that time.

 After almost 30 years on the air, Psychedelic Psunday has been axed. Andy Frost is gone too. He designed and started the show in 1985. Frost is also the voice of the Leafs at the ACC.... There are surely a lot of people who are pissed. I think Q107 will rue this decision. I really hope they come to their senses or maybe it is just a media ploy and the show will be reintroduced with hoopla and fanfare. I don't know....Sad
what are you missing most?  the music or the man?

I listen to a 24/7 60's, 70's, and 80's station

as for the man, around here it is, or was, Red Robinson.

He was MC when both Elvis and the Beatles came to Vancouver.

He is either retired, or semi retired.

Had a theatre named after him until some yahoo bought it and changed the name. He was a good sport about it though
     The music first but Frost is like a part of the show. He designed it and hosted it. I told him once that when he is not hosting, it's just not the same. He liked that..There are a few guys who could do the show but when Frost quit for a while there was one guy who did really good. His name is Rory O'Shea. To make the show good you have to know the music, not just play songs....They used to have a feature called the vinyl hour where they would play albums, scratches and all.. I still play albums. The sound quality is like nothing else.

Ya...guys that have been on the radio for that long are really missed by their audience. 33 years is a lifetime in a way. He must have been really good.

I'd really miss Michael Enright and his show on Sunday morning on CBC radio. It's like he's a regular presence in my living room. My kids almost never had a Sunday morning without him.

I don't want to veer this off to much but I'd sure like to hear a local sport talk program that wasn't 24/7 hockey. Winnipeg used (maybe still?) to have one that I would listen to when I was there for a few weeks. I think it was on CJOB early evening. Hockey was a topic but so was CFL, the Bombers, CIS stuff,NFL, baseball etc. It was really good.

PS ...I still do lots of vinyl too.

Fair enough Dan.  I just meant there was a limited amount.  And some seemed to get an excessive amount of airplay for some of their more mediocre songs.  Not just on Sunday, but the rest of the time.

 Great stuff everyman. Veer off all you want. I'm pretty sure this qualifies as entertainment.... I went to school with a guy named Michael Enright. I wonder ?
  My son bought me a Doors album for my BD recently. I first played the CD version and then the album. The sound from the album was much much better. Fuller. You could hear all the instruments more clearly.
  CJOB- good station for sports.

  When you're far up north at a fishing camp with no TV, the radio is your key to the events. Listened to many CFL and NHL games on the radio.

   I did not mean anything by my statement, Oskee. The CRTC made sure we got to listen to our homegrown talent and I'm all for that. You are right on that there is a limited amount considering the USA and Great Britain filling the airwaves...
  Heh, heh, I still mute Joni Mitchell. She is not classic rock. Thanks for the thoughts.

Ya Dan...I still love listening to games on the radio. Radio overall is still a first choice for me in a lot of ways at home. It's certainly the first thing that gets flipped on in the morning.
When I was a kid we'd always go to a cottage in the summer with no TV. The CFL on the radio was a must.

Psychedelic Psunday was easily the best music program on any Toronto station. I tuned in regularly. It was in fact the only reason that FM 107.1 was the fallback setting on my radio dial. 

:(
Sly old fox!

The first Grey Cup game I followed "live" as a kid was the 1959 one between the Tiger-Cats and Blue Bombers. (We didn't get a TV until 1961.) 

Moreover I still have very fond memories of listening raptly to the B/A CFL broadcasts on CKSL radio in London in 1961 and 1962. By 1963-64 more CFL games were being televised on CBC's London affiliate, CFPL-TV, and I don't remember listening to any more games on the radio. 

I still like sitting outside on my porch swing on summer and fall evenings listening to Argonaut and Tiger-Cat radio broadcasts on my ghetto blaster as well as Eskimo and Blue Bomber radio broadcasts over the internet. I'm looking forward to doing precisely that again this weekend!

The answer is satellite radio, yes it does cost a monthly fee.
But it has all genre of music.
For example 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and also theme chanells.
The other best part there are no commercials  the music chanells.
It makes traveling distances enjoyable.
The bonus is there are play by play stations for all CFL games.
