Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!

On Friday night The Magic 104 Radioactives made the scene at The 5th Annual Battle Of The Brains for The Greater Moncton YMCA. We were the media sponsor of the trivia event that started 5 years ago with 7 teams and raised $3,000. This year we had 30 teams registered and raised over $14,000 for The YMCA community outreach programs! Our thanks to Bonnie and the volunteers from the YMCA for a great night and for putting up with our rowdy team. We decided that since we were going to the Battle Of The Brains we'd dress up like nerds. Shelli's the one in pigtails...she brought her compass just in case we got lost. That's me with the fu-manchu...and wife made me shave it off the next day. By the way...out of 30 teams we came in tied for 12th...not bad considering we spent most of the night trying to bribe the judges.

Magic 104's Olympic Weekend

A couple of weeks ago as The Winter Olympic Games were ending in Italy, The Magic Morning Show with Tony Smith & Shelli Summers asked listeners what the city of Moncton could do for Gold Medal curler Russ Howard when he got back from the games. One listener suggested we fly the whole team over from Newfoundland for the that's what we did! Friday afternoon Magic 104 flew Olympic Gold Medallists Team Gushue in from Newfoundland to celebrate with their teammate Russ Howard who lives in New Brunswick. The visit started with nearly 500 fans greeting them at Moncton International Airport. Then a parade down Main Street, Moncton to a raucous reception at City Hall. Later the guys got the VIP treatment with a swanky Mayors reception where they found out that the city is naming a section of road after Russ Howard and erecting a huge granite curling monument with the team's faces etched on the rock. They finished Friday off with the Rob Thomas concert at Moncton Coliseum. Saturday morning hundreds greeted the team at The Beausejour Curling Club for a champagne brunch and then in was off to The Bay for a two hour autograph session. More than 1000 people showed up at Highfield Square to get pictures and flags signed by the curlers. Finally it was back to the curling club for a huge pizza party and to watch the gold medal game. They flew out Sunday and probably had a big sleep on the plane ride back to Newfoundland and Labrador. Whatta weekend! Thanks to our corporate sponsors for helping us to make the whole thing possible...CanJet, Holiday Inn Express, Club Beausejour & The City Of Moncton. Magic 104 was proud to make it possible for our listeners to meet the Olympic Champions!

The Gold Medal Breakfast

The Magic Morning Show had a Gold Medal Breakfast on Friday with Olympic Men's Curling Champ Russ Howard on the air for questions from us and you! What a great time...Russ even let me wear the medal! Then...It mysteriously disappeared...(Shelli says I took it but that's not true)

You know...We thought it was so nice that Brad Gushue's Team Canada Rink invited Russ to go to the Olympics with them that we thought we'd invite them to come to that's where we're headed next. To Moncton International Airport to pick up the guys when they get in from Newfoundland for the weekend! See you at the parade!

Thanks for Listening!

Ice Bowling

Wednesday, March 1st, Shelli and I both got to 'Ice Bowl' for the very first time...
I know what you're thinking...but I've led a sheltered life. We got to showcase our bowling talent at center ice at Moncton Coliseum during the intermission of The Wildcats game. All for a great cause, to drum up publicity for the upcoming Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl For Kids Sake. Wouldn't you know that Shelli and I won! Must have been my time spent on the South-West Nova Scotia Mid-Professional Bowling Circuit. (You know my nickname was Tony "Twinkle-Toes" Smith) If you want to find out how you can get in on some bowling fun too you can surf on over to and we'll see you at Fairlanes on march 24th & 25th!

Thanks for listening!
