Welcome to the Strombo Show Chat Blog..

Hey there..

Welcome to the Strombo Show Chat Blog!

[ NOTE: Picture is from George receiving his Doctorate of Laws from the University of Calgary.. We think it was ~2007 (but don't quote us on that). We'll find out & confirm. Not sure who to do photo credit to? If you know, let mus know! Thanks. ]

We created this blog.. actually about a week or so ago to support the Strombo Show Chat that is running on Skype now as StromboShowChat (see "former" posts for information, or if you need technical help getting setup, please contact us). We are just getting the blog up & running finally now as we've been busy.

It's an "unofficial" chat (and blog) at the moment. Not sure if "we'll" ever get any official recognition at any point, but we are chatting with "the powers that be" (when we have time to email them again that is..) and that takes time.

We've "ported" posts that we originally put up elsewhere ... but the Strombo Show Chat information was sorta taking it over & we'll leave them duplicated there probably until the month end (April 2010, likely end of May now to handle the transition/setup) to make sure we have them successfully moved over with all information, and then we'll probably delete them from there.

If anyone has any questions/concerns/etc.. please feel free to post or comment on here.. or drop us a note some other way. The side panel has some info, as we're working on a few things like a Contact Info/About Us pg & a Chat Rules/Info pg, How-To-Sign Up (see blog post here), several FAQs, etc.

We will seeing about setting up a Strombo Show Chat email as well.. but we don't want to step on George's toes in anyway doing any of this stuff.. so we're waiting for some response before we do anything more "official" like that.

Please join the chat session on Sunday nights..

Join up & join in on your time zone, or whenever you listen.

Interesting enough though.. most people are streaming the show online at CBC Radio 2 website: and the earlier timezone(s).. 8pm AST/7pm EST/4 pm PST are the MOST popular at the moment, with most people out East tuning in & then signing off by ~8-8:30pm PST.. which is.. late-ish.. out East.

We are currently planned to be around for the whole time frame across all time zones (4pm PST/8pm AST to midnight PST) since ~(now former) StromboShowChat Collective team members are all across the country.

Maybe in the future we'll sort out confirming some other moderators to help out.. but we listen right now, first time in AST during the craziness of the chat.. and then the 2nd time (as long as the show is good, which is usually is..) in PST as it's quiet in the chat & we can catch up on things we missed and sit back, enjoy.. update this blog hopefully and occasionally a few people drop into the chat on CST/MST, or a the few of the "old guard/regulars" in PST stumble in...

So.. Please participate. Please engage.
Please offer feedback/insight/help/etc.

Yours in musical awesome-ness,

~(now former) StromboShowChat Collective

  1. I have a discussion question: If you got to ask George one question, what would it be?

    interested in going to the show tomorrow. email:



As it turns out, I can't turn off the "Anonymous Users" part of the commenting form w/out also losing other formating I like, so I'll have to live with it. However, I do hope that those that comment here will make an effort to at least use a name of some sort. Or if you have a blog or website you can include it under the "Name/URL" option.

I do welcome all comments regardless and while you are not obliged to leave anything more than the comment, this blog is about engaging and sharing so I hope you will do the same.

Best regards,
Yours in musical awesome-ness!
