Podcast episode 421ish: Dino Archie

I love talking with Dino Archie, whether we record it or not. That's why I keep having him back. This is his fourth solo appearance on the show. Once he came on with Sunee Dahliwal. And another time he guest hosted for me. But he's never been hotter than he is right now. The guy's career is on fire. He just filmed a spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Adam Devine's House Party. He won the Seattle Comedy Competition in November. He's got a new album coming out later this month called Settling Old Scores. And he's about to bring his VanCity Comedy Extravaganza to the River Rock Show Theatre stage (Saturday, April 30). This episode was recorded during the radio station's spring member drive (if you'd like to become a member or simply donate to the station, go to and click on 'donate'). When that happens, I usually edit out the pitches for the podcast. But because Dino jumped in and made them fun, I decided to keep them in.

Enjoy this one like I did. You can click on the gizmo below if your browser lets you see it. If not, head over to iTunes or Stitcher or a place like that and download us into your head.

Apr. 17: Dino Archie

It's Dino Archie time again, ladies and germs! Dino has been on the show numerous times before. With this appearance, he now joins the exclusive 5-time Member Club along with Paul Anthony, Steve Bays, Graham Clark, Ian Boothby, Will Davis, Harry Doupe, Darren Frost, Richard Lett, Darcy Michael, Kliph Nesteroff, Dylan Rhymer, and Tim Rykert. I guess that's not so exclusive after all. But fine company, nonetheless. Dino's been on a roll lately. He won the most recent Seattle International Comedy Competition and even more recently taped a set on Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show. His star is on the rise. And on April 30, he's getting together another one of his Comedy Extravaganzas at the River Rock Show Theatre featuring himself, Graham Clark (see list above), Darcy Michael (see list above), Ivan Decker (former guest of WSF?), Dave Merheje (former guest of WSF?), Kathleen McGee (former guest of WSF?) and New York comic Mike Blaustein. All for the low, low price of under $20. You can't afford not to go! Dino's one of my favourite people to talk to whether it's on the show or on the town, so I'm looking forward to it.

We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM in Vancouver and around the world streaming at or whatever radio app you use. So no reason to miss us.

Podcast episode 420ish: Ed Hill

Here we are at episode 420. It's only fitting that our guest would be a guy who's never done drugs. Ed Hill and I talk about that. We also talk about piano lessons, crabbing, ghosts and gout. He tells us what he Googles whenever he visits a new city and how one of his tweets made Jimmy Fallon laugh. He also explains why he's a "weirdo whisperer," which also happens to be the title of his upcoming CD.

It's yours for the taking. Click on the gizmo or go download us at iTunes or Stitcher or another such place.

Podcast episode 419ish: Caitlin Howden

A lovely chat with a lovely person on a lovely day. It all came together in this episode when I spoke with improviser extraordinaire Caitlin Howden on a park bench overlooking False Creek on a warm sunny day watching the world go by. She told me about being a dominating Grade 6 basketball player, breaking her coach's heart, having her Grade 9 improv teacher break Caitlin's heart, and Ian, her crush, breaking her heart. But there's more than heartbreak in this one. We talk about reality TV, the Sunday Service, Second City and other things you'll just have to download to hear. Caitlin recommends you go for a walk while listening to get the full outdoors effect.

Apr. 10: Ed Hill

Tonight in studio we welcome back Ed Hill. Probably from somewhere, too. The guy is always out on the road, performing around the world. Since last with us in 2013, Ed's appeared on Gotham Comedy Live and even had Jimmy Fallon read one of his tweets on air. He's got a new CD out called Weirdo Whisperer that he recorded in a theatre in Seattle. Maybe we'll get to hear a track or two from it. And we'll find out what else is new in his life and I may ask him whatever I forgot from when he was with us the first time.

We're on the air at 11 pm, as usual, on CFRO 100.5 FM. If your radio's, you can always livestream us on or one of those special radio-streaming apps that are all the rage.

Podcast episode 418ish: Dave Merheje

Dave Merheje, representing the YQG, joined us for an hour to talk about nothing in particular and everything in general. I didn't know he had moved away from Toronto and is now living in Los Angeles. So there you go. We talked about his religious upbringing, rap and hip-hop, towns he could do without, a rant against Justin Beiber followed by a mea culpa, good gigs gone bad, and ethnic comedy shows.

It's all here for your listening pleasure. You just have to click on the gizmo below or go find us in iTunes, Stitcher or other such places. We're now available in search engines near you.

Apr. 3: Caitlin Howden

What a gorgeous week we've had in Vancouver. Suddenly it's spring. I took the opportunity to sit down with Caitlin Howden on a park bench. We watched the world go by and talked about all things Caitlin. Her beginnings in Montreal, her years in Toronto, and her transition to Vancouver. Now she's the darling of the Sunday Service (although they're each darlings in their own ways).

So tune in tonight and pretend it's sunny out. We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO, 100.5 FM in Vancouver. Or livestream us at You can do it!
