I had a chance to sit down and talk with former WHL Victoria Cougar Tom Martin. Tom is best remembered as “that guy that got traded for a used bus” in 1983. He ended up being drafted by the Winnipeg Jets and enjoying 7 seasons of professional hockey between the AHL and NHL. He played in NHL games for the Winnipeg Jets, Hartford Whalers and briefly with the Minnesota North Stars.

The latest instalments of Hockey! with me… likely will air during this weekends Victoria Royals WHL hockey broadcasts on the Zone.

#51 for the Calgary Flames is Roman Horak.  Horak played his junior hockey in the “dub” for the Chilliwack Bruins.  Bruins were a WHL expansion team that played only 5 season in Fraser Valley.  This year… they are our team, the Victoria Royals… so that makes Horak an alumni of our team.  Neat.

I talk to Roman about how awesome it is to be in the NHL.

In episode 5, Suicide Box, I hang out at ice level to record the sounds of the game… I capture a great exchange between Timmy T and the Edmonton Oil-Kings.

I love hockey.

In a spectacular turn of fate, I get a chance to take part in a hockey game contest at the Save-On Foods Memorial Arena at a Victoria Royal’s WHL hockey game.

I win a coffee maker. I like hockey.

This hockey game did not bode well for the Royals… they lost to the Edmonton Oil Kings, 8-2.  I still had so much fun as it was the first time I got to see an entire game from start to finish.  (I usually bring Mads and bed time is before the game ends or else I am DJing and can’t go to the game).

I also got to go in the suicide box!  That is a box for the media right at ice level that separates the players benches.  I recorded some of the sounds and the chirping between players.  Still messing around with the audio in the studio but will have that done soon.

Thank you for listening.  Go with yourself.

 I have been working at the Zone the past few days on a new project called “Hockey! with Jeremy.” My challenge is to create a hockey feature to be broadcast on the radio during the intermission of Victoria Royal‘s hockey games. I have only made two so far (its a lot of work to produce spoken word radio… who knew?).

I have enjoyed the practice thus far… and look forward to trying to create compelling audio and improving my style as the season progresses.  Have a listen to the first two segments.

“Practice” was fun because I got actually sit on the bench and yap with the boys during a rest in practice.  Plus I had the chance to talk with Kevin Sundher and he is the Royal’s first line stud.

“Hockey Sense” I recorded this morning after practice and I had the chance to interview the boys (and a coach!) as they came off the ice.  I of course caught up with homeboys Jesse Pauls and Brenden Persley again.  But I missed my boy Timmy T who might be the most hilarious Royal I’ve talked with so far.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, November 8th), The Royals are at home against the Edmonton Oil Kings. The PR flaks from the Royals said I might get to sit in the suicide box at ice level and record the sounds of the game.  Nice.  Better bring my helmet.  I might also interview some kids about hockey… so if you’re bringing your kid to the game and see me, say hi so I can put your midget you on the radio.

Go with yourself.
