Habs Talk Radio from The Land of Blue and White

image Not just one, but two topics of interest on the Montreal Canadiens, on Tuesday, from Toronto-based FAN590. Surprisingly neither involved Habs-bashing.

First up, University of Montreal Theology professor, Olivier Bauer  (pictured above) talked about his book, and class that is taught bi-annually, “La Religion du Canadien de Montreal.”

Professor Bauer has been featured on this topic in the past in the Montreal Gazette and on TVO’s “The Agenda” (seen below).

Uncle George talks to the Bobcat: Former Canadiens owner George Gillett talked to FAN590’s flagship Primetime Sports’ Bob McCown about his former asset.

The former owner, always a favourite on the show, told Primetime that he is still an avowed fan of the team and the city of Montreal.
