Reviews about radio

  • John Pritchard
    Please stop running that terrible choir boy commercial with the virtually indecipherable lyrics. It sounds awful and I have no idea the name of the product or service it is meant to promote.
  • Gord Baker
    Enough of the 'stick and ball' sports. Not ONE mention of The Indy 500 and NASCAR 600 races last weekend. Pathetic.

    Darryl Dahmer was traffic legend reporter on 680 News in Toronto! It's a shame that he stepped down. I was listened him, since when he came on air.
