Taking it all off in the name of THEATRE

She may play Miss Sugarpuss, but Holly was once on Arthur. Bet she made that aardvark blush)



While Miss Sugarpuss is making her debut at the centaur theatre this week as part of the wildside festival, the actress behind the character is well accustomed to the performance space. Her name is Holly Gauthier-Frankel, and if you dont immediately recognize her name, after you see Miss Sugarpuss Must Die!, you likely won’t be able to forget it.

For Canadian Tv Junkies, she was also the voice of  Sagwa, that very trippy asian cat from PBS’s  Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat.

But she did some more awesome voice work as Fern on Arthur ( you know, the aardvark) and also for the show What’s with Andy

So don’t miss her on Sunny Side Up this weekend, 9:30 am on CJLO 1690 Am or

Searching for Happiness: a report by Adam Avrashi

Here is something I have been working on for the past little while.

I went on a search from happiness, and came out with a really interesting story.

Happiness can be as simple as eating your favourite cupcake on a chilly winter afternoon. But is there a recipe for happiness besides for sugar, flour and a bit of spice? And can that happiness be sustained?

Adam Avrashi sets out to answer those questions and along the way he meets Miriam Glassman, a young entrepreneur who just started a business called Flatter Me. For five dollars, she will call your friends, family or anyone of your choosing and compliment them over the phone.

Adam also meets up with McGill university psychiatry professor, Dr. Simon N. Young, who explains that mood plays a large part in being happy and that it can make you live longer.

And Adam also meets Dr. Jim Pfaus, who is researching the link between love, sex and rats.

This report was written, edited, shot, produced and directed by Adam Avrashi

It was great having Jade Hassoune from Geordie Production’s For Art’s Sake on my show this weekend. He did mention a few interesting thing in his interview:

1) playing an 11-year-old isnt as easy as it appears ( he had to shave his legs for the role!)

2) Its actually more rewarding to speak to the puppets than be the puppeteer

3) Best. Set. Ever.

Enjoy the interview below;

Starting off this summer, my grandmother has been joining me on the radio to talk about whatever was on her mind: from Mel Gibson to Coronation Street. But one time, she forgot she was due on air, and well, she had to go live from the grocery store. So enjoy; my Nona, Odette Avrashi

Happy Halloweeeeen! BOO!
