(2) There seems to be a lot more hockey talk these days on non-BaD radio. Yeah, I know the station broadcasts the games, but other than BaD, until recently the station ignored the Stars to the extent possible. Somehow The Hardline was coerced into interviewing new owner Tom Gaglardi. The Musers this morning did a rapturous segment on last night's losing effort (shootout). Maybe it's because the Stars have crept into the decidedly non-elite playoff-eligible club. Anyway, it seems there is suddenly more enthusiasm for the sport among showgrams that haven't touched it in the past.
(3) Listen up: I thought Gordon's Joe Odom (Lamar's pop), yesterday's 8:40 bit and today's 6:40 repeat, was absolutely hilarious. Funniest thing I've heard on the station in awhile. Amazing vocal transformation. Didn't find it offensive or racist. But I was thinking: OK, this bit plainly calls on stereotypes of older, possibly unemployed black men. The accent; the language; the topics (gambling, smokes, women). Is this the sort of thing that people who accuse The Ticket of racism are referring to? As I say, I thought it was a fair bit, but it was pretty ethnic stuff.
