Tell the Truth
If you are able to get 96.7 FM, do you still listen to 1310 AM? Some Confessors said they didn't switch over when The Ticket got its long-pants signal, but is this still the case?
A few quick hits:
A commenter at the end of the last thread beat me to it: I thought the Norm expense report review on The Hardline yesterday was pretty bad. Remember when Bob and Dan got yanked off the air when Dan undertook to read an internal memo regarding, as I recall, producers? This is plainly company-confidential information, and, in my judgment, about as sorry as Dan's disclosure. I'd be surprised if someone didn't get spoken to. Also agree with that commenter that the expense report was not all that exceptional. Kind of made The Hard Ones look like they weren't too hip.
I like it when people say "coach 'em up."
Wish the Dirk "Guess What Day It Is" commercial parodying the GEICO ad with the camel had run more often. Thought it was absolute genius. Not only was Dirk extremely funny, not only did he actually walk like that camel, the thing featured a star turn by the too-little-seen-on-major-visual-media-outlets Cash Sirois.
As a Man of the Plains, I have a pretty thick skin after coming on five years of composing this site. For those who have not heard me say it in the past: I compose very quickly and do not spend a lot of time on this site. I listen to The Ticket when I can, which is maybe 2-4 hours a day, almost all of it in drive time. I do not have time to do much else. I almost never re-listen or to go back and find things I missed. And I have listened to precisely one podcast, ever. This means I will be less knowledgeable than some others who have lots more time to do these things. I am very grateful that those people visit the site and I appreciate it when my errors are pointed out.
But really, put a cork in the personal aspersions, OK? I tend not to delete them because I don't want to seem like a guy who can't take criticism, and because I do get stuff wrong. But I'm considering greatly increasing the deletions for tone around here.
Thank you, and also for Shopping at My Ticket Confession.
