For all intents and purposes, we are into the holiday season. With that comes shopping, decorating, parties, Santa, the once a year visit to church for some, and of course, Christmas music! When do you start listening to Christmas music, if at all? Do you like hearing it in stores? A new survey conducted by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada says 82% of people enjoy holiday music while they shop. What they don’t really appreciate, though, is Chris... Click here
One of the nicest elements of working at Giant FM, is the chance to meet and interact with some great people. Just this week, we set up interviews for the Weekend Shows, with Crossfire Wrestling's Jeremy Elliot of United Family Martial Arts, Morgan Mitchell of Music and Performance Niagara- to feature the students in their Christmas Musical Finest.

Sometimes, we don’t really appreciate what someone has accomplished in life until they are no longer with us. That may be true for some of us in the case of Pat Quinn. Quinn, who passed away on Sunday after a lengthy illness, was a winner at every level of hockey he was at, either as a player, coach or executive. The “Big Irishman”, as he was affectionately known, grew up in East Hamilton, playing hockey in Steeltown until a move to the Edmonton Oil Kings, ... Click here
OK so it's a look I've had before but as I mentioned before it was the result of Movember 3 years ago. Anywhooo I started fresh again this past Nov 1 and with the help of a gardener and a little fertilizer my beard and stash are back in place and donations have been made to the Cnanadian Cancer Society and hopefully awareness has once again been raised of cancers that primarily affect guys. Congrats and thanks to all who Mo'd this Movember.
Never, ever count out this edition of the Buffalo Bills. Just when many thought their season was over, the Bills came out Monday night in Detroit and put together an almost flawless performance in crushing the New York Jets 38-3. How did that happen? Many Bills players faced incredible hardships and distractions over the past week during and following the historic lake-effect snowstorms in Buffalo and surrounding communities.Some players actually had to be taken from their homes b...

I don't understand this trend that's been happening the last few years, where we rush into the NEXT holiday before we even enjoy the one we're IN.
I typically DO NOT put any decorations up inside or out until the American Thanksgiving, and even try and push it to the first of Dec. The weather was so nice on Sunday, I decided to put the outside one... Click here
What Fun! Saturday afternoon, it was my great pleasure to represent Giant FM in the Winter Cruiser in the Welland Santa Parade. I had help. Chuck LaFleur and Brian Salmon rode along- 6 hands waving wildly out the windows at the assembled multitude! We even wore Santa hats to add to the excitement and to our looking like idiots. Not hard, even on a good day.
Brian and Stef classed up the St Catharines Santa Parade Sunday, with a report on my Eighties Super Sunday Show... Click here
So the Leafs snapped a three game losing streak on Thursday night with a pretty good effort resulting in a 5-2 win over the Lightning. It was good to see coach Randy Carlyle joking around with the media after the game, probably the most relaxed he’s been in a week. There had been the usual suspects calling for his head lately, again. I don’t think he’s the problem, a lack of talent, heart and character is. And speaking of a lack of character, the Leafs left...

I haven't been able to update my workout progress for a couple of weeks now because I hadn't been working out and man did I pay for it. My buddy and trainer Dan Giancola was away for a week and when he returned I wasn't able to make a few sessions. This past Monday I was back at the BTO studios, 106 Ormond St. South in Thorold to try and get back to the level I was at before I tailed off. The first thing we did was the battle ropes, quickly followed by pull-ups thanks to ... Click here
This has long been something that has irritated me at home...this is how someone installed our cabinets at home!? Really!? Come on WTF where they thinking? They had one thing to do, and this was the amazing result. For ever I have complained about it at home, so I started telling friends and strangers alike about it...and it looks like we are surrounded by idiot... Click here
What’s the highest amount of bags of leaves you’ve ever put out for collection in one year? Up until this fall, my previous record was 28, and that was from a house with a small front yard, but a huge backyard almost the size of a football field. We moved to a new house this summer, and loved the trees, the privacy they provided, the shade in the summer that kept the house cooler and saved on air conditioning bills. Well now, that love affair is quickly fading. We ha... Click here
We have survived 2012, but who knows whats around the corner? Nuclear weapons? Natural disaster? Another album from Nickelback? Whatever does come our way you can now face it in luxury. Take a look at the Luxury Survival Condo made out of a decommissioned Kansas miss... Click here
Well, it's that time again- Parade time in Niagara. This morning begins the cycle of Santa Claus events with the Niagara Falls Parade, starting at 11 from Victoria Avenue and the Armories, down Victoria to Valley Way, then Queen to City Hall. Look for Brian and Jef in the Giant FM Winter Cruiser. Don't throw old fruit at them, a wave and smile will be just fine.
Next Saturday, Fort Erie's event begins at noon, and then at 4- look for Chuck LaFleur and me in th... Click here
