Mornings with Wix and Meg

CICZ Meg and Wix

Meg

Once a GTA transplant, Georgian Bay is now her permanent home.  In the last decade on 104.1 The Dock, Meg has gone from being a crazy cat lady who spent oodles of free time with mountain bikes, tents and kayaks, to a person who tries to run sometimes.  Sometimes it’s on a trail, sometimes it’s after her small children.  Still a total nerd she can usually be found paying library late fees or lugging mason jars to The Bulk Barn.

Brian

Brian Wicks has been with the Dock since its inception 12 years ago, as News Director and morning co-host. ‘Wix’, as he likes to be referred, has a couple of grown kids, one of each, who have long departed the nest, leaving Brian and Deb to pace freely about their Tiny Township home with no concern for clothing or manner. Wix has just welcomed his first grandchild, a boy named Beau, who he plans to nurture toward a career of underwater welding. When not spinning tales and relaying the days news on the radio, Wix enjoys being out on his boat on Georgian Bay, or trying to figure out that 16 foot putt on a local golf course. He is between dogs right now, but loves to train and care for canines, and will soon be shopping for another ‘Doodle’ of some sort to bring into the household.

    Mallory & Dave Holmes started Charlee's Run, a fun 1K/5K run walk, to create community for those experiencing the loss of an infant and to show people it's okay to share and talk about these experiences.  This year, the run has to look a little different, but they're still determined to create a community and place to be together.  http://www.charleesrun.com/

  • Real Estate and Mortgages during the pandemic-Rachael Beemer

    Wix and Meg, perhaps like you, were wondering how the Real Estate market is affected by Covid-19, and what should people be doing about their mortgages.  For all the intelligent answers, we turn to Rachael Beemer, from My Better Mortgage in Innisfil, who nicely fills in some of the blanks.  Thanks Rachael.
  • Thank you to our First Responders

    Each Friday we're doing a 'Hero's Salute' to those working long hours away from their families while everyone else's shelters at home.  This week we took calls from listeners thanking police, paramedics & fire fighters.  Each week we'll thank different sectors from drivers to cashiers to correctional workers.  
  • It appears our contests are causing Marital Fights....

    Or maybe it's just too much 'together time' but our listeners needed clarification on The Backyard Vacation to ease a conflict.   Either way, listen for the code word at 7am, 11am & 4pm, enter it at the 1041thedock.com for your chance to win a Husqvarna mower from Mercer Equipment in Barrie. 
  • Can your farts transmit Covid-19?

    Are your farts 'silent but deadly'?? Wix and Meg discuss a NY Post article looking into the possibility that the Coronavirus, could be transmitted through.... ah..... a gaseous release.!      But broaching such a subject, on live radio, isn't always easy.  Have a listen.
  • We're doing less of what?

    More than 57% of us are doing less of WHAT right now?   The answer is 'wasting food' but he's not wrong.....
