OPEN THREAD: Friday Give-Up
Confessors, I'm on the run. Wouldn't be posting this except with the increase in readers the comment threads are getting long and unwieldy. May just have to put up with that. Anyway, here are some random quick hits.
(1) Are my ears deceiving me? The TC-and-Muser computer screwups of the past week will not be candidates on the E-Brake? Cannot have anything to do with the length of TC's misery -- this is a station policy at work here that wants to lower the volume on the continuing problems arising from the inexpert move to Victory.
(2) The Hardline did a live spot on Wednesday similar to its taped Texas Land and Cattle piece where the boys parody the copywriter's tendency to introduce each piece of dialogue with the speaker using the name of the listener. In live spot, which may also have been for TL&C, they took this to an extreme and by the end of the spot they were screaming at each other. Very funny.
(3) I've heard Mike and Ty read some copy about something or other that talks about "30 megabits per second." Are megabits any longer a meaningful measure of digital performance?
All right, that's it. Get us started, someone.
