Back online

April 13th, 2014

After some internet nastiness, the site was messed up and I didn’t have much time or motivation to fix it. Somehow, I found some time and now the Bob and AJ archives are back online for you to enjoy.

I’m eternally hopeful once day AJ and I will record again, so this site being around makes that easier. In the meantime, you can find me on Best Episode Ever and The Marshall Mcluhan Variety Hour, where I keep the podcasting chops active.

For fresh new content by people that aren’t me, be sure to check out CastRoller, and CanadaPodcasts.ca

No NHL, now what?

October 15th, 2012

Ok, looks like the site is back online…

 

So, there are no plans yet to resume B&AJ production. More than a few people though have mentioned that since we started this when the NHL didn’t want our attention in 2004, perhaps the current work stoppage would result in Bob & AJ episodes.

Could it?

Would it?

Will it?

 

That may be  up to you. 

 

Leave a comment on this post, let’s see if we can convince those involved …

110: A year, some friends, some wine

Almost, but not quite 12 months after our last show – here’s B&AJ 110!

Strangely enough, it’s recorded at the same cottage where we recorded the last xmas show. However, there are some subtle, yet important differences :

  • Interplanet Janet (AJ’s wife) joins us
  • Fuzzy Logic (Luc) is with us as well
  • AJ and Luc’s kids are there too
  • We started drinking wine WELL before hitting record
  • The police (the law enforcement people, not the band) also join us. Seriously.

The police appearance didn’t make it into the show, so I’ll explain here :

The kids were playing with what they THOUGHT was a dead phone, dialed 911 (emergency services), and hung up. Then, 911 phoned back, so they answered and hung up. The kids alerted us, and we called 911 to tell them everything was ok. BUT, since a child made the call, they had to send the police to be sure everything was in fact ok. So a freaked-out kid and 2 rather friendly police-people later, the show was done.

I have to say that I do find it funny this happened merely minutes after a discussion where I had been called a “helicopter parent” for spending too much time making sure my kid is ok. Life is funny that way.

So in this history-making Canadian podcast, we were effectively shut down by the police (again, not the band).

In a strange twist of fate, Bob forgot to turn the recorder off, and so over 4 hours of material was recorded. Keeping true to Bob and AJ form though, only a small part ended up useful, and (thankfully) the rest stayed on the cutting room floor :)

So there’s our Dec 1 show – AJ refuses to call it our holiday show, leave the door ever-so-slightly opened for 2010 holiday episode. Lawyers are checking into this for us.

We’re happy you found this episode, and we’re sorry it wasn’t better :) but at least we got one done for the true North strong and free!

Happy Whatever-the-hell-you-celebrate from Bob and AJ -

Join us as we sit by the fire, and actually do a B&AJ show in time for the holidays.

Thanks for all the emails/comments/patience this year, hope the holidays find you safe and happy, and we’ll see you in 2010!

Bob and AJ Xmas ’09 ?

December 9th, 2009

Ok , so here’s the deal…

The Bob and AJ show is officially Canada’s oldest running podcast. No doubt about it.

This year, we mark our 5th anniversary, and I REALLY want to do a Christmas show. No, you don’t understand… I NEED to do a Bob & AJ Xmas show so that my model of the universe continues to exist.

AJ, as most of you know, spends little or no time online, so he doesn’t get the feedback I get sometimes. The thing is, AJ doesn’t see what you and I talk about on twitter, facebook, or what is emailed to me directly, and to be honest, he’s feeling a bit unappreciated.

I think it’s really important for us to do an Xmas ’09 show, if only for the fact that I haven’t seen AJ since the summer, and hell that’s just too long.

So I need your help -

I’d need you to comment on THIS post, and tell AJ how a Bob & AJ Xmas show would make you feel. Be honest, be brutal, but please post..  Want to call it in? Sure – (267) 220-3701

Help me make AJ feel the Xmas love!

Thanks!

Bob
