Re: Eric Francis, I would almost guarantee that the Monday Eric Francis hour is paid for by him to get him exposure and keep him relevant. My understanding is that he pays for his Friday hits (via sponsorship by the Beltliner). He was writing all the cheesy little commercial skits about how Rob Kerr and Eric Francis hate each other, so tune in and listen.



He's the modern day Jungle Jim Hunter buying airtime to get on the radio.

Both Pinder and Wills were calling games in the AHL around the same time. I'm curious of the exact timing when they each joined 960, but (just a guess) I'm thinking Pinder's probably a little frustrated that Wills is calling Flames games instead of him.
