It had been over 10 years since I was last on the air in Ottawa , however on December 10th, 2007 "The Real Darren Stevens Show" returned to the Ottawa airwaves weekdays afternoons on CHEZ-FM.
It was a classic rock music intensive show injected with a lot of personality, an unpredictable mix of comedy bits, guests and lots of listener interaction.
It was a ton of fun, but was kind of short-lived.Just when things were starting to get going, the station pulled the plug on it.The final show ran on Wednesday February 20, 2008
Here are some audio clips from my brief return to the airwaves of Ottawa

Well, everyone except me! Why not me?
It was a simple enough question - "Can I have a TV show?"
Well, that was in 2003!
That may be true, but I think it's time to take matters into my own hands…time to tap into satellite uplink signals, the internet - to do whatever it takes and pirate the airwaves with…The Real Darren Stevens Show
What did you expect me to call it?
It's TV for those with a short attention span …like me.
It's outbursts of gritty, no holds barred, in your face comedy sketches, parodies & whatever else I can throw together. Racy, raunchy, risque...and yes very stupid & childish at times, it is what it is.
Here's how you can help make The Real Darren Stevens Show one of Canada's most talked about and most watched TV shows – that's not on TV!
