    This was all when the station was the Tiffany of private radio. Now it is joke with these two year radio broadcasting grads mugging their way through a story and trying desperately and failing miserably at being authoritative. Spend more time editing and checking a story than on your beards gentlemen.

    As a Bell shareholder I resent the talent cutting out and heading down to the Quebecor bunker to spew the PKP and Big Oil agenda.

    Keep working at it you might get up to 5th in the ratings. Radio Moses knows that you must identify a solid personality to your people it is just traffic and weather on the sevens and whenever

    When RB was good it was live 24 hours not taped and canned and taped and canned

      @Etobi-COKE Voter Their format has been traffic and weather on the 15s for years. Not sure what station you were thinking of, there..

      And who all has a beard? The only one I can think of offhand is Jim Richards, and he's certainly been there long enough to have earned his beard.

      In any case, everything evolves, Christian Science views notwithstanding. If you don't like CFRB, your radio dial ain't broke.
