Years ago, Remy was co-host of another radio show on another station here in Fredericton. He asked Mike to come in to ‘liven things up a bit’. Once Mike got in, he convinced Remy to turn the show into a comic/pop culture talk show and the rest is heresy…I mean history.
Tell us a little about your yourself?
Mike and Remy have been friends since 3rd grade. They grew up on a steady diet of sugary cereals, cartoons, horror movies and of course comics. Mike likes anything superhero and Remy gets some kind of weird enjoyment out of police procedurals. Chuck pays attention to things Mike and Remy normally miss.
Who would be your dream guest on your show?
Remy has already had his dream guest in the form of comic superstar and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. Mike is still waiting patiently to land the elusive John Byrne. Chuck has always dreamed of being the WMD producer so I guess we can put that baby to bed as well.
What made you decide to come to CHSR to air your show?
At CHSR we enjoy the freedom to produce our show in our own way without any corporate meddling. The equipment is top notch and the staff are always helpful. CHSR welcomed us in when we didn’t have a home and now, 4 years later, we wouldn’t want to do this anywhere else.
Where do you see the show going in the future?
We are currently trying to raise some money to help us get to a few more conventions in Canada. We just got back from the East Coast Comics Expo in Moncton, we are always mainstays at Hal-Con in Halifax as well as the Dartmouth Comic Art Festival, and we are hoping to make it to Toronto in August for Fan Expo. All of these Canadian produced conventions have top notch comic industry guests, so we like to bend their ear a bit here and there to get some tasty audio to play on the radio show and podcast.
