Hebsy On The Royal Pains
Another perk that came from playing at the Toronto Mike’d Listener Experience was meeting a bunch of Mike’s past guests in person. One of the more notable guests was sportscaster extraordinaire Mark Hebsher.
We could tell right away that Mark was a Hip fan because regardless of what he was doing or who he was speaking with, whenever we played a Hip song, he would bop his head and sing along with the band.
Then when we played Courage, Mark parked himself right in from of us and stuck his phone right in our faces to record the entire thing. It was a little unnerving and a LOT flattering.
Mark has a weekly sports podcast that he records at the TMDS studio. It drops every Monday and Friday and features Mark’s take on the big sports stories of the time. It’s great! I Highly recommend it if you're a sports fan. The day after we played Toronto Mike’s event, we were pleasantly surprised with the following shoutout:
