It's safe to say that Growing up Much is something millennials and Gen Xers have in common. Erica Ehm was one of the first batch of VJs to grace Canadian airwaves back when MuchMusic launched in 1984. Her broadcast journey actually began in Montreal in the late 70's when she entered her College into a contest on CHOM-FM to have Max Webster play in the Marianapolis Cafeteria. While her school did not win the contest, Erica did score a job in the CHOM-FM music library, and work and Broadway Live as a DJ where Suggs from Madness crashed on her family's sofa, she saw the GoGo's perform, and Bono told her to go into P.R.In this episode, we talk to Erica Ehm about her journey to MuchMusic, through MuchMusic, and all the creative projects that came after including television, stage productions and songwriting. Did you know Erica has won multiple Junos and Canadian Country Music Awards? Exactly! That's why you need to hear how Erica evolved. And guess what is next? Podcast!Erica's brand new podcast is Erica Ehm's Reinvention of the VJ, where she reconnects with MuchMusic alumni to explore the challenges of reinvention with entertaining anecdotes and useful insights to inspire you to face the next chapter of your life.Subscribe on Apple Podcasts Subscribe on Google PodcastsFollow on Spotify.

Jeremy White works evenings and weekends at the Beat 92.5 in Montreal. He got his start in community radio at K103 in Kahnawake in the Mohawk Territory just off the island of Montreal. The radio station played a key role in the 1990 Oka Crisis which exposed Canada's fractured relationship was its First People. Jeremy shared some family stories from that era, along with growing up with the station, and listening to the incredible talent on CHOM, and Mix 96 like Cat Spencer, Terry Dimonte, Kim Rossi, and Ted Bird.In this episode, Jeremy opens up and life in Kahnawake, starting at age 15 at K-103, and then getting hired by Leo D'Estrella at Q92 which evolved into the Beat. We also discuss Jeremy's online presence and his interviews with some prominent music stars like John Oates, David Guetta, and Rob Halford. He also talks a bout his time in Edmonton at Virgin 104.9 which he readily admits was not his favourite move. In fact, moving overall seems overrated these days unless it's to Z100 or something in a large metropolis. We also flashed back to Ted Bird's episode and you can hear that here in its entirety.Thanks also to the people who make this show possible every week including:PromosuiteMatt Fogarty VoiceoversJustin Dove at Core Image StudiosMegatrax
iHeart Media's Tony Coles was not immediately drawn to radio. It came later after he was let go from a radio job and competing program director, the late Dave Robbins showed compassion and reached out. Tony will tell the story in the show better than I can write it, but it was clear that Tony could relate to Dave's compassion, recognition and empathy for "those moments" in radio. I have had the chance to meet Tony on a few occasions and if you want to get better as a programmer, or air talent, follow him.In this episode, you will hear about a few of his early stops in radio, the decision to pivot to programming, working with talent, finding new talent for radio in 2020, and the assembly of the Black Information Network which launched earlier this year. The network was built in the pandemic for 2020 consumption. You can stream it from the website, or the iHeart Media app. (And good news Canada, yes you can listen to it too) Finally, we wrapped the episode up with a few thoughts about Thanksgiving. Tony loves Thanksgiving and I wanted to have him on in between both Canadian and U.S. Thanksgiving to talk about what he loves about it. (Full disclosure, I have been celebrating both for years) There is more about BIN and its personalities on our show page. You can also connect with Tony on his Linked In page.
