“As the host of a late night radio show that is heard in Montreal and Toronto, I have seen my share of guests come and go. This is a program I have been hosting for 20 years and there is a very small number of guests who have been with me for the entire duration. One of them is Agia Akal Singh Khalsa (Yogi Akal), one of the most popular guests we have ever had. His monthly appearances on our show guarantees that the phone listeners line up in anticipation of having the chance to talk to him on air. But quantity of calls is not the barometer I use to gauge the value of a guest, but rather the quality of his connection with those who do call. It’s always a fun, fast-paced program when Yogi Akal is on the show with us and while the show itself is lighthearted, the information he offers each caller is well received and much appreciated. Over the years, many of our listeners who have spoken to him in the past marvel at how helpful his information has been and how enjoyable he is to listen to. I know for a fact that our show has been greatly enriched by the appearances of Yogi Akal.”  – Peter Anthony Holder, CJAD 800 AM, Montreal; CFRB 1010 AM, Toronto
