Is there politically, socially and culturally aware a female in Canada between the ages of 16 and 36 that doesn’t love this guy? Former MuchMusic VJ, and current host of the award-winning show, The Hour on CBC, George Stroumboulopoulos is coming to Vancouver airwaves starting next week.

Kicking off November 4th, between the hours of 2:00pm and 5:00pm, Canada’s beloved pierced and leather-bracelet wearing media hunk will be spinning tunes (although on-air personalities don’t actually spin the records anymore… and well they’re called “on-air personalities” instead of DJ’s again, for that reason), conducting interviews and leading discussions on 99.3 The Fox.

Strombo is no stranger to radio, it’s actually where he got his start.

Since hosting Punkorama and Live In Toronto on 102.1 the Edge in the late 90’s, George has gone on to interview the biggest newsmakers in the world… [CNW]

I must admit that even though all the AC/DC they play drives me nuts, I do love the “rock talk” content the Fox provides; from Taggart’s Take to my personal all time fave… Alan Cross’ “Ongoing History of New Music.” The fact that Cross is one of the executive producers of The Strombo Show definitely means I’ll be checking it out.

If you’re not in Vancouver you can still tune in on these other stations: Power 97 (Winnipeg) from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm CT and 102.1 the Edge (Toronto), FM96 (London) and Y108 (Hamilton) from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm ET on Sundays.

    Is he hosting the show from Toronto, and broadcasting live nationwide?

  2. Thanks for the heads-up — I’m definitely past the 36 yr mark, but totally enjoy his show. I’ll listen in!
