Seven days a week at noon and again at 11 pm, listeners in Southern Ontario, including the Greater Toronto area, will hear the best of standup comedy as compiled by radio legend Rick Hodge.

"I am thrilled to be back on radio and do what I love, which is to bring listeners to smile, laugh and occasionally crack a rib!" said Hodge.
