For my 2nd appearance on Humble & Fred Radio, I sat with them for the entire show. It was recorded on March 14, 2013 and aired on humbleandfredradio.com, Newstalk 1010 CFRB and other radio stations.

At 00:05 minutes until about 00:14 – Discussion of racism and what kind of comedy is ok
At 00:51 minutes to 01:00 hour – Discussion of comedy about being Jewish and being gay, discussion of JDate.com and my story about being one of the few guys at the P!nk concert
At 01:09 hour to 01:10 – Discussion of how many dating sites I’m on, and about how dating sites are now a common way to meet people

What idiot would screw up guaranteed sex by telling the girl he’s in bed with that she reminds him of an unattractive 80’s sitcom actress? I would. Here’s me telling Humble & Fred Radio the tragic tale today.

The Jan. 9, 2010 episode of CBC Radio’s Definitely Not The Opera was about Optimism. I told a story about how in university I was overly optimistic that my “friend” Grant back in Ottawa was telling the truth about things like his magic bicycle and his secret laboratory. There are many parts of this story that CBC didn’t have time to include. Fortunately, they’re all in the play I wrote on the subject. I’m optimistic that someone out there will hear the story and contact me to fund the play’s production. Heck, I’m sure that, amongst his other remarkable accomplishments, Grant is a multi-millionaire theatre empresario. “Josh Man! I heard your story on the radio! I’m going to produce that play for you. As long as you come out to a bar to pick up chicks with me!” To hear the tale, click here or simply click Play below.
Here’s when I’ll be on the radio. You can listen at 1010 AM in Toronto or at www.cfrb.com on the web. Call in and share your views on whatever nonsense I’m discussing! 🙂

In the past couple of days it has come to my attention that some people actually read this blog, looking for updates on upcoming Josh appearances and for information on how things went. So I would be remisce in my duties to my fans if I didn’t update this blog a bit more often. With, you know, Josh Rachlis News. Since this IS the Official Josh Rachlis News blog. And if I type in Josh Rachlis News one more time, maybe I’ll get more prominent placement in Google searches. Should someone be searching for Josh Rachlis News.
ANYway, apparently CFRB was very excited about the shows that Tony and I did and asked Tony how soon we could be ready to get back on the air. He of course answered that we’re always ready. So hopefully we’ll be filling in for someone again soon.
And by the way, CFRB mentioned that they got a lot of positive emails about us. So if you were one of the people that sent a note, thanks! The station loves to hear about what people enjoy listening to and it helps them decide whom to put on the air. Their site is www.cfrb.com and they have a Contact section where you can find email addresses to send your feedback to. Unless you have negative feedback about my shows. In which case, I’m just kidding – they don’t have a website at all.
I’m gonna be burning up the airwaves as I co-host the Nightside show with my friend Tony Daniels (who used to work with Howard Stern) from 11pm to 1am on Tuesday, March 21 and Wednesday March 22. This may lead to a lifetime of radio stardom. Or it may be the last time I’m ever allowed in front of a microphone. In which case you should listen in, as it may be your last chance to hear me on air. You should probably listen to the first night, actually. Just in case. Might not be given the second night. Haha! Just kidding. Of course I’ll be given the second night. And many more to come. Because I will be spreading love and kindness and laughter to the masses. And Lord knows, the world needs more love and kindness and laughter.

And don’t be shy to call into the show! You may be our only listener.
