  • Jael (Ealey) Richardson — Author of The Stone Thrower
    At the age of thirty, Jael Ealey Richardson travelled with her father—former CFL quarterback Chuck Ealey—for the first time to a small town in southern Ohio for his fortieth high school reunion. Knowing very little about her father’s past, Richardson was searching for the story behind her father’s move from the projects of Portsmouth, Ohio to Canada’s professional football league in the early 1970s. At the railroad tracks where her father first learned to throw with stones, Jael begins an unexpected journey into her family’s past. In this engaging father-daughter memoir, Jael records some of her father’s never-before-told stories: his relationship with his absentee father, memories of his high school and college football victories – including a winning record that remains unbroken to this day – and his up-and-down relationship with the woman he would one day marry. As Jael begins unravelling the story of her father’s life, she begins to compare her own childhood growing up in Canada, with her father’s US civil rights era upbringing. Along the way, she also discovers the real reason—despite his athletic accomplishments—her father was never drafted into the National Football League. The Stone Thrower is a moving story about race and destiny written by a daughter looking for answers about her own black history. Using insightful interviews, archival records and her personal reflections, Jael's journey to learn about her father’s past leads her to her own important discoveries about herself, and what it really means to be black in Canada.

  • Chuck Ealey — All Star, MVP & Grey Cup Winning CFL Quarterback
    After completing an undefeated record in High School in Portsmouth Ohio, Chuck received a Football scholarship to University of Toledo. While getting his degree in Business Economics, Chuck, as Quarterback, led his UT Rockets to a record breaking 35—0 college record. He was 8th in the 1971 Heismann Trophy standings. Despite this record, Chuck was passed over by the NFL draft as Quarterback. Although offered other positions, Chuck remained committed to becoming a Professional Quarterback and chose to go to the CFL where the only thing that mattered was his ability. In 1972 he led the Hamilton Tigercats to a Grey Cup Championship, winning MVP as Quarterback. He also played for the Toronto Argonauts and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and played in the CFL for 7 years. Following his athletic career, Chuck has become a successful and well respected manager within the financial services industry. Currently he is the Regional Director of Investors Group Financial Services in Mississauga Central. Chuck can also be seen on CP24 speaking on related financial topics and heard daily on Wave Radio 94.7. He is frequently asked to be a keynote speaker at corporate functions and sports events around the GTA.

  • Joshua Grant Marshall — Not Really A Recording Artist, Son Of A... Legend!
    Like most 23 year olds, Josh Marshall is broke! So as a birthday present to his father (Nov 30th), Drew's son was manipulated into singing on his father's radio show in lieu of a REAL present! “Seriously though, he's pretty stinkin' good. And to be honest, this is the best present he could have given me!”

Talkback, etc.

  • The Counsel Of Many!
    Need Help or Advice On An Issue In Your Life?
    Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!

    This week on The Counsel Of Many: The mother of a young man wants to know what the difference is between a “real” Christian and a “fake” Christian, because her son's pastor just called him a fake Christian.

    A few weeks ago my son got pulled aside by his youth pastor and told that he's not a REAL Christian. The pastor went on to say that he thinks that my son is just playing games and is faking his Christianity. Not exactly what I was expecting to come out of my son's youth pastor's mouth. I guess I can see where he's coming from. He probably just wants my son to be a “better” Christian. But before I go and talk with the youth pastor, I thought I would get some opinions. What exactly is a REAL Christian? And how does one FAKE being a Christian? I understand that my son isn't exactly an angel, and that he doesn't live a lifestyle the pastor would encourage. But before I have a talk with this youth pastor, I would like to try and understand these terms.
