Who are Steve and Tawny? Well, if you’re one of the few who don’t know, we’ll tell you. Steve Hammerstone and Tawny Skypunch have hosted a very popular (in the Coboconk region) morning show for many years. The show features good old fashioned chit-chat, along with interviews, advice, arguing, pettiness, and water cooler talk. A few years back, CBC Radio – Canada’s national public broadcaster – asked Steve and Tawny to go out and cover the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. They had no previous experience with sports, but made the best of the opportunity afforded to them by the CBC, and in part Steve’s dad who is a broadcasting bigwig. After the Olympics, they were offered an advice show called The Know-It-Alls. They did 50 episodes answering important questions about the world, like “when’s the best time to mow my lawn?” or “what’s the deal with that smoke behind planes?” and “How do I deal with a chatty boss?” Most recently, The CBC has been airing “best of” moments from interviews Steve and Tawny do on their multi-award-winning morning show.

My Ex-husband Steve
Steve Hammerstone of Steve and Tawny is my ex-husband. I was wife #2 of 3. So far. I implore you not to listen to this podcast! It'll only make Steve's ego even more inflated if you do. The last thing I need is to run into Steve at the Moose Knuckle Cafe in downtown Coboconk and have him blather on about how popular his podcast is. So please DO NOT listen. And tell anyone you know not to listen. How does this star thingy work? We just click on the stars above? Well, on a scale of 1 to 5 stars in jackassery, I'm giving Steve a solid 5!
P.S. Hi Tawny. Candy here. I think you're a very nice person and wonderful broadcaster.
I'm from Coboconk and I grew up with Steve and Tawny. I'm so glad that even though I've moved away I can still find my favourite radio voices and take them with me. Great job S&T!
