I can finally say with total elation that the “Dean Blundell Show” has been cancelled. The show that I have been “dogging” for years is no longer just suspended but cancelled, Corus Radio, owner of the Edge made a statement today:
“With the start of the new year, Corus Radio will be taking 102.1 the Edge in a new direction in 2014. The station will return to a more music-based format showcasing the best in modern rock. Th Dean Blundell Show has been cancelled, effective January 6, 2014. Stayed tuned as details of the new morning show are announced in the coming weeks.”
Dave Farough, General Manager, Corus Radio Toronto
I recently posted about Dean Blundell and his show. My mind is now at ease and I am currently listening to “Human Nature” and “bathing in the moonlight”
A step in the right direction for Michael Jackson and for others that are being slandered.
Todd Shapiro the other half of the Dean Blundell Show in Toronto blogged about Michael recently after his death. If you read through it you will see how uninformed and opinionated Mr. Shapiro is about MJ. Not once does he mention anything remotely positive or true about him. This is the kind of defamation that we must stop. If you clink on the link below you will also see the hateful comments that the listeners and readers of these stations write, this is typical of this station and The Dean Blundell show and I have been diligently keeping up with their shows and have contacted the proper Canadian Broadcast Commissions to no avail. (see earlier posts).
This man is cruel, hateful and slanderous however, the airwaves have the control. It is now our time to take the “bull by the horns” so to speak and educate ourselves, no matter how uncomfortable or ugly the things we hear and read may be. The MJ Global Community must work together to fight this slander and make this “world a better place for you and for me” and especially for Michael Jackson.
Celebrity Dead Pool by Todd Shapiro
Okay, so I don’t wanna’ brag… but I went ON-AIR 2 weeks ago and stated that I thought Michael Jackson would pass away before his summer concerts in London. In your face Psychic Nikki! Now, I wasn’t hoping for him to die, however, I just felt like he would hit the dirt due to his constant fragile nature. He reminded me of Benjamin Button (even though I haven’t seen the movie), as he had a child’s mind wrapped up in an old man’s body. He died at 50, which seems like an appropriate age as a balance to his mind and body.
Are you upset that the King of Pop has died? Should we be celebrating the life of someone who accused of such horrible actions? And while he wasn’t ever convicted of pedophilia, most believe it was odd that he settled many of his law-suits by paying out millions and millions of dollars to the families of the alleged victims. While I’m on the topic, what parent would let their ‘child’ stay with MJ even after the rumours of his perverted ways were rampant?
Anyway, I don’t want to get too deep (ewww, gross!) into the life and death of Michael Jackson because truthfully, I didn’t know that much about him. I do know that I LOVED some of his music (yes, I can admit it!!) and that I believed he was a lost soul despite being adored my millions… Oh, and he clearly was perverted even if he never touched those kids. NO GROWN MAN SHOULD EVER SHARE A BED WITH A CHILD THAT’S NOT HIS.
So, what are your thoughts on Michael Jackson? What did you love about him? What did you hate about him? And most importantly, what jokes can you submit to me about him? My favourite is:
What’s the difference between Michael Jackson and a Horse Racing Jockey? It’s legal for a Jockey to mount 3 year olds.
By the way, my favourite Michael Jackson song was ABC… when he was young – and it was okay to hang out with children.
After listening to The Dean Blundell Show you tube links below, I hope you will see why I am so enraged. Please read the links provided below share them, and take action against this radio show and its station. Write letters to the CSBC and The Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) regarding this and make your opinion known. THIS MUST STOP!
- Read about the Dean Blundell Show and see what kind of “guests” he has on his shows and what he represents.
- Read about the sanctions against this show and remember that this morning show has been on for many years but did not have such hateful content until Blundell joined.
- Please listen to the links that I have supplied in which Blundell has slandered Jackson, his children, and his fans.
- Write and innundate Corus Entertainment, the CRTC and the CSBC with letters. This is the only way that something can be done about this radio show. Writing to Blundell is unproductive since, as you can see by the response he has written to one of my posts, he is totally unreasonable and disrespectful.
Please we must do this for Michael and for others who have been continuously slandered by these hateful people who, because they have microphones in their hands, think they can slander and speak untruths anytime they want. This particular problem is a Canadian problem and we need Canadian MJ fans to assist in this endeavour.

The links provided below are daily recording of the “Dean Blundell show”. These shows are racist, hateful, cruel, and slanderous. No one is safe from his ridicule; whether it be Michael Jackson, the handicapped or an e-mail writer with an opinion on his remarks.

The Dean Blundell Show has been sanctioned numerous times by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) and The Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
Here is the information regarding these sanctions. They are truly appalling and no one should be subjected to such slander and ridicule from another person.
Dean Blundell was suspended in March 2004, with respect to a rather rowdy appearance by Steve-O of “Jackass.” It was not due to content but with Dean Blundell’s refusal to follow orders. When it became apparent things were getting out of hand, Cross called the studio and ordered Blundell to cut off the guests’ microphones and have security escort them out. Blundell continued with the show and that’s why he’s suspended. “Insubordination” is how Cross described it this morning. Alan Cross was Program Director of The Edge at the time. http://www.torontomike.com/2004/03/the_reason.html
Please read how Dean Blundell Violated the Code of Ethics in September 2004. The show was entitled “Spencer the Cripple” the radio station violated a specific code of ethics. Link of code of ethics here: http://www.cbsc.ca/english/codes/cabethics.php#Clause9. Link to what happened on that show http://www.torontomike.com/2009/09/dbs_spencer_the_cripple_segmen.html
In October, 2010 Blundell again violated Clause 8 of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Equitable Portrayal Code which prohibits the sexualization of children in broadcasting. Link of code of ethics here: http://www.cbsc.ca/english/codes/cabethics.php#Clause8 Blundell started by making tweets about Justin Bieber. Bieber fans objected, and Blundell let them have it with tweets like “Save your energy for puberty or to fend off your dad tonight while you’re sleepin’” and “He’ll be chuggin’ before he’s 18 if he likes that music.” What got him trouble was not the tweets but, talking about them on the air. (His behavior then was very similar to his conduct concerning the lady of our MJ Community who wrote the e-mails to him which he then read on the air.) http://www.torontomike.com/2010/10/dean_blundell_sexualized_child.html
This defamation and slander must STOP!
In my next post I will be discussing Blundell’s defamation of Michael Jackson and his children.
“The Dean Blundell Show” has, for many years, slandered the handicapped and the less fortunate. Now Blundell has taken aim at Michael Jackson, his children, and his fans.
The Dean Blundell Show is the longest running morning radio show in the City of Toronto and is heard nationally. The call numbers of the station where this show airs is 101.2, The Edge (formerly CFNY). Please click on the links below and listen to some of the comments made about some of the rational people that e-mailed him regarding his comments about Michael Jackson’s private life and the invasion of his privacy.
I have personally contacted Blundell with some true information regarding Michael Jackson and he responded with two words: “Eat Shit”.
An MJ fan who wrote a very respectful email to Mr. Blundell defending Michael was repeatedly bullied by Blundell and his “cast of characters” with his nasty emails. She was extremely patient and gave him facts after his disrespectful comments. He had far more choice words for her after she continued to question where he got certain information regarding Jackson.
Blundell read her email on air and proceeded to mimic and degrade her with his comments on October 3, 2011. Please listen; beginning at 15:30 and hear what he had to say about her after defending Jackson.
To me this is not only about Michael Jackson, but people in general and the disrespect Blundell shows. There is truly something wrong with a person who makes jokes about the dead and also degrades someone just because of her opinion. He lacks, decency, morality and has no respect for human life. No one is beyond his tackiness and dishonesty.
