The Pub Radio Show - Now Available On Demand

Back in September I co-hosted my first episode of the Pub Radio Show with host Bill Perrie. The Stouffville based radio station gave Perrie his own hour long time slot to invite brewers, brewery representatives, industry insiders, and musical talent into the studio to talk beer. Perrie wanted to create an environment similar to that of a pub, some people sitting around the table having some drinks and chatting, and I think the show's done just that. The taping is done every Wednesday evening and airs on Saturday on 102.7 FM between 4-5pm and repeats on Monday's from 8-9pm.

We've had a number of guests head out to Stouffville to be interviewed and to talk up their product. From John Bowden of Great Lakes to Chris Goddard of Steam Whistle, Perrie likes to mix it up with representation from small craft breweries to large breweries like Molson, which helps create a level playing field that really caters to beer drinkers of all sorts. There have been some really good interviews.

Months after the show went on air, Whistle Radio has just recently put a Pub Show webpage together on their main site that features all the clips that we've completed to date, enabling you to go back and listen from the start. Right now each show is broken up into four parts on the webpage, and doesn't identify the guest, but at least they're available.

This week Perrie and I are going to have representatives from the new Hop City Brewery in studio, along with Nick Pashley who will be there to speak about his new book. It should be another good show. Join the Facebook group today to check out photo's of past guests.
