0730 You know him best as the host of CBC Radio One's "Q". Before that he was a member of the satirical musicial group Moxy Fruvous. But there's much more to Jian Gomeshi. And you can read all about it in his new literary memoir. It's called 1982 And Jian sat down with Mary Ito to talk about it.
Listen audio (runs 13:19)
1982 is published by Penguin.

0800 Hamilton was known for years as "steel town" But these days, "arts city" might be a better description. And that explosion of artistic endeavours is being celebrated today with the James Street SuperCrawl. Tim Potocic is part of what's going on. He's co-founder of the SuperCrawl. He's also co-owner of Sonic Unuyon Records in Hamilton. That's where Mary reached him by phone.

Learn more about today's gi-normous arts and music festival in Hamilton at the SuperCrawl website.

0830 Steve Brinder is a substitute teacher. He's also a comedian. And the first job provides plenty of material for the second. Steve will be part of CBC Toronto's Accent On Toronto show on October 17th at the Music Hall on Danforth. But first, he came into the Fresh Air studio to talk with Mary.
