The Hockey Show - Episode 164

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with another great interview! We're always on the lookout for good people with great stories to be a part of the show, and we were lucky enough to grab some time with one of the best sportscasters this nation has to offer! Because he's written a new book, we wanted to get some insight from Canada's favorite game show host himself on how he got started, how he fell into broadcasting, and anything else upon which his book touched!

While we were disappointed that Maggie the monkey had a previous engagement she had to be at, we at The Hockey Show are proud, honoured, and privileged to speak with TSN's James Duthie tonight! James, as you may know, is literally the guy on the left when it comes to the TSN hockey panel, and we are happy to speak with him about his new book, The Guy On The Left. We go over his childhood, his inroads into broadcasting, and what it's like being part of the TSN crew. We also find out who has the best dimples from Winnipeg and west, hear one of James' favorite stories about CFL legend Matt Dunigan, and get his perspective on some of the guys who have served on the panel with him.

All in all, it's an excellent discussion on one of Canada's most recognizable sports figures who doesn't wear a uniform. James is fun and personable, and he really seems like he enjoyed the chat. This interview was pre-recorded a couple of weeks ago due to James' busy schedule, but everything he says in the interview is still relevant today. Except maybe the part about going to see the Blue Jays play. That's a pipe dream.

The phones will be closed tonight, so make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage as well! Tweet me anytime with questions you may by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. We sit down with TSN's James Duthie on the program and get the details on how he became one of the most important hockey men in Canada tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
