*Sad news about a member of the GST show's family. Our condolences to Ken Wanninger's loved ones.
George Stroumboulopoulos (from Strombo's facebook page in his own words)
Incredible sadness and disbelief.
We lost a dear friend and colleague a couple of days ago. Ken Wanninger was engaged with the world and enjoyed great conversations on so many topics and his loves and passions came through in his work. He had a deep love of film and music and his creativity was on full display in the radio and TV show.
We are honoured to have been in his company, and if you enjoyed our shows, you should know that Ken played a major role in making them sing. Just weeks ago, he worked on the Prince Charles special staying late to ensure the bio was the best it could be - working until he was completely happy with it. It is even still unbelievable to have to write in the past tense as this has been shocking news. A life cut too short.
Much Love and condolences to his family and friends,
George, Tania and the GTonight team-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the 8th anniversary of this blog I bring you what I wrote on the 2nd anniversary from my own personal blog. Happy birthday Stroumboulopouli!
In January 2006 I started a blog just to explore what blogging was and to work through my personal grief about loosing my boyfriend to lung cancer… It had been a year and a half since his death and I needed to try to move ahead with my life. I was looking for a focus.
The name Stroumboulopouli is the plural of Georges last name, and should you wish to know it's created source, the credit goes to "Jeremy at The Hour and Deana at Sunday".
Going to a taping can be a more personal experience. If you are Toronto when the show is taping or can be there when it's on the road by all means book a seat or two. Or like many people do, have a conversation with George when he is talking to you from the other side of that glass. (I do not!)
I also want to thank George Stroumboulopoulos and the crew and former crew of The Hour and the Strombo Show for making it personal. They inspired the path that lead me from standing still in Montreal to getting back into life and moving (literally to Toronto) but metaphorically forward. I have discovered and rediscovered friendships, music, comedy, movies, creative writing, photography, geography, books, ideas… not conceived by The Hour but for me, the spark was reborn there.
Strombo is kicking around Toronto to visit friends and vote in the provincial election. He would never suggest who you should vote for but he is very big on the action of voting.
