About Richard Syrett
     
Scratch at knowledge and invariably a mystery lurks just beneath the surface. It?s his indefatigable and passionate pursuit of these mysteries, his insatiable curiosity of the world around him and his unique and finely tuned story telling abilities that have earned Richard Syrett the moniker, Canada?s Art Bell.  First, foremost, and always a broadcaster. Richard?s writing, story-telling, and interviewing skills, infectious enthusiasm and the ability to stare down chaos and confusion with a smile make Richard a rare and valuable media commodity.  He has been producing fresh, compelling and provocative talk radio in Toronto, North America?s fourth largest market, for nearly 20 years.   
After graduating top of his class from Centennial College?s Radio and Television Broadcasting Program in 1992 he began working almost immediately at one of North America?s blowtorch stations, the legendary CFRB AM 1010. He received his ?doctorate? in broadcasting working as the producer for such talk show legends as Larry Solway, Ed Needham, the late Brian Linehan, Andy Barrie, John Oakley, Michael Coren, Jim Richards and Spider Jones.
In 1999 he took over the microphone for the first time with his own talk show and by 2000, his arcane Sunday night program examining political intrigue, the dark side of geo-politics, cover-ups, corruption, alternative energy, alternative health and unexplained phenomenon, had become an appointment tune.  In 2003, his special brand of talk was chronicled on the front page of The Globe and Mail?s Review section (Canada?s national newspaper) and that spring his show earned a 13 share in Toronto?s very competitive market.   
Later in 2003, Richard left CFRB for cross-town rival, AM 640 to build and produce an edgy, funny new morning show and continue his own unique show on Friday nights. The show continued to be a ratings grabber, drawing a larger audience than the stations? hockey broadcasts of the city?s beloved Maple Leafs.
Richard was lured back to CFRB in early 2007 to host five nights a week.  Over its two year run, it garnered a dedicated, even zealous, following.  He consistently beat his rival in the market, the behemoth Coast to Coast by as much as 2 share points.   When Richard?s show was suddenly and unexpectedly cut from CFRB?s line-up as part of a ?corporate reorganizing? Richard?s devoted listeners organized and staged a rally outside the radio station in minus 30 degree weather!  Despite being off the air, his past, archived RB shows continue to be downloaded from his website.   One of his last shows in December of 2008 has been downloaded in excess of 31,000 times.
Richard has obviously struck a chord with a huge market and has become the new voice of alternative talk radio. Richard is not, however, a one-note wonder. As a whimsical impressionist, he had created followings for his fictitious characters during his morning show producing stint and he is recognized for his political acuity.

That makes two of us, Ev. I thought that Syrett did a great job. In fact, I'd take him or *any* of the hosts over Noory. Like someone else once said, ABN (anybody but Noory).

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 29TH, 2009
11PM UKRAINE MYSTERY ILLNESS
Richard welcomes an expert in emerging viruses to discuss the mystery illness currently causing a state of panic in Ukraine. Some reports are claiming that this mystery illness is a more virulent form of the H1N1 swine flu.  Other reports are linking the mystery illness with typhus, ebola hemorrhagic fever or even the pneumonic plague. The latest numbers out of Ukraine indicate that 1.25 million people have now contracted what is being called "the mystery flu". Over 65,000 of those have required hospitalization and 239 are officially reported to be dead. As the situation in Ukraine continues to become more dire, many health experts continue to be absolutely perplexed as to why the WHO continues to refuse to release the sequences from the samples taken from patients in Ukraine well over a week ago.  Meanwhile, there has been a dramatic spike in flu cases in neighboring countries such as Russia, Belarus and Bulgaria.  In addition, a dramatic increase in flu cases is being reported in Serbia, Norway, India and Canada.  In many of these nations there are reports of the flu virus absolutely disintegrating the lungs of patients just like it is doing in Ukraine.

I noticed this wonderful Canadian guest host from last year isn't mentioned, so I thought I'd give credit where credit is most certainly due. I clearly recall the night he guest hosted (from Toronto, I think) for George, and this man did an absolutely outstanding job. He was articulate, informative, engaging, and he held my attention throughout the entire show (this was one show where I didn't turn off the radio after an hour or so from either mental exhaustion or frustration). This man also knew his stuff and contributed a lot to the interview without overshadowing the guest (whose name escapes me at the moment). What also struck me about this particular show was the number of callers who had high praise for Richard; many stating he was the best guest host they'd heard in a while - I concur 100%

Sadly, Richard Syrett has never been asked back to guest host another show - my intuition tells me the producers received a lot of positive feedback - George got wind of it - and, presto, Syrett is out of the game. Oh, George, poor, insecure, feeble and small-minded George.

If I had to place a vote on a permanent replacement for Snoory, Richard Syrett would get my vote in a macro second.

I couldn't agree with you more. I also remember Richard guest hosting, and yes indeed he did a superlative job. I really enjoyed him...well, I enjoy ALL my men, honey!  ;)

Strictly a guess here - I wonder if his being a Canadian has anything to do with preventing his further involvement in C2C.

Well I listened to it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right questions at the right time. Very slick style as well. I've just downloaded a couple of his podcasts and they're also very good.

Can't believe he wasn't on my radar before, but now he most definitely is. And the best bit is I've got a 2 year back catalogue to catch up on. My bus ride to work now looks a lot sunnier :)

Richard Syrett is simply fantastic - the best paranormal/conspiracy host on the air, in my opinion.

Richard Syrett - The Conspiracy Show is broadcast from Toronto, Canada every Sunday night from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on AM740 radio. U.S. citizens living in the northeast can pick the show up.

He also broadcasts his show on television in Canada, on the Vision Channel.

Here are a few links for Richard Syrett. I highly recommend if you can catch his show, then do it.
Intelligent, articulate host, no bumper music, no ignorance or stupidity.

FYI - here is the official website for The Conspiracy Show with Richard Syrett out of Toronto:

http://www.richardsyrett.com/

Toronto also is home to a very cool bookstore, Conspiracy Culture, which offers a wide range of paranormal/conspiracy related books, DVDs, and other materials. My friends checked it out when they were in Canada and said the store was great and that the owner (who is a good friend of Richard Syrett) is quite intelligent and engaging, too.
