Garner Andrews

Garner Andrews is a popular morning radio personality in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He has been voted "#1 radio personality in Edmonton" for three years straight (2006-2008) by See Magazine. Among doing voice talents for other broadcasters such as Zed 99 FM - Red Deer (radio) and DejaVU (cable TV), he can best be found weekday mornings from 6:00 am until 10:00 am hosting the "Garner Andrews Show" on Sonic 102.9FM. He has been known to refer to himself as "The white, chubby, balding, male Oprah".

Garner has quickly become known for his unique style of radio humor, which includes rants and discussions on various day-to-day topics of modern culture and public etiquette. He is known to assertively push for changes in the Edmonton community through multiple projects, such as discouraging the use of debit at the Tim Hortons drive-thru, to petitioning for the renaming of a street after himself. He often brings up the topic of running for and becoming the first "President of Alberta", although his sincerity on the subject is uncertain.

His morning radio show can characteristically be identified by his "Napoleon Dynamite"-esque choices of background music, frequent lashings at a fictitious assistant named Amber, and of course, intro segments from the high-pitched studio usher character, Teddy Peterson.

Despite Garner's social efforts, "The Garner Andrews show"'s most popular component could possibly be the "Sonic Modern Rock Door". Played weekday mornings at 8:20am, listeners can call in to guess the song and artist of a brief snippet of audio for a daily incremented cash prize. This contest can notoriously difficult, or extremely easy - clips can be anywhere from less than one second long, or three or more seconds long.

Some of Garner's Ideas

* Tradio - Thursdays at 8:10 am, Garner will take calls from people to "buy and sell for fun and profit", which can be almost anything. He affectionately calls this the "one hundred thousand watt garage sale". Some past items bought, sold, or traded have been Foosball tables, tent trailers, or even livestock.
* Mini Fridays (a.k.a "Thursdays")
* The "Bring Back Pie" Movement
* Man Land - where men can go and do "manly" things.
* Trophy Wife (t-shirts)
* Salute to substandard service
* Daily Nap Index - an index, similar to a UV Index, which tells the liklihood of wanting a nap. Conditions such as temperature, sky conditions, and day of the week factor into this.
