About Humble and Fred

Humble and Fred are a couple of nice fellows who have been part of the Toronto radio scene since 1989.

On the hunch of a very progressive Program Director, Humble was plucked out of Montreal to come and work with Fred at CFNY-FM.

For the next 12 years they entertained their audience with a mixture of humour, irreverence and goofiness while CFNY morphed into 102.1 The Edge.

Then in 2001, a well intentioned big shot at their company had the brilliant idea of moving Humble and Fred from The Edge, which was on the cool FM band, to something called MOJO Radio, which was on the AM band.

How they were ever talked into it is still a mystery to this day. They can’t even explain it.
The MOJO Radio project got off to a great start, but then managerial cold feet turned it into something the two nice fellows weren't comfortable with. So when the chance to move back to the cool FM band came along, they jumped. But alas it turns out the station wasn’t so cool.
Square peg, round hole – it barely lasted two years before Humble and Fred were separated for the first time in 16 years.

What followed was six years of meandering, flip-flopping and soul searching as they looked for that door that was supposed to open after the other one closed. Problem is they found themselves in the hallway of hell. It had no doors.

They started to take it personally. They thought "maybe it’s something we did."
And it was at this point they bought into another popular cliché. Everything happens for a reason. And the reason could be this.

The Humble and Fred Podcast was born in December 2006 with a holiday recording at Dan Duran's house with technical production by Toronto Mike. Now, in 2021, following simulcasting experiments with Rogers Radio, SiriusXM and Bell Media, Humble and Fred is 100% independent.

Convenient subscription links for The Humble and Fred Podcast can be found at humbleandfredradio.com and new episodes are recorded weekday mornings and live streamed and archived on the Humble and Fred Facebook page. But we need your help! Being fiercely independent takes a village of Humble and Fred fans to financially support the project.
