We're Gonna Keep It Positive While I'm on Vacay
Mrs. P and I will be heading to cooler climes for a week. I'll try to check comments every few hours, but please indulge delays.
I have sympathy for those commenters who decry the negativity on the site. I must acknowledge, if not break down and tearfully confess, that I have lately contributed to it.
So how about let's make a special effort to call out segments, performances, bits, CTO decisions, that we like? I'm not saying I'm going to delete negative comments for the next week, and sometimes there's a breaking story that cries out for commentary that may be less than glowing. But I'll be biased in that direction on a close call.
Consider that no matter what you may think of an individual host, show, bit, JV, etc., what is really good about The Ticket decisively outweighs the yelling-at-the-radio stuff. I mean, you do think that, don't you? You wouldn't be here, or able to comment on things you've heard, if you didn't believe that, right?
Well okay, then. How about an attaboy for our favorites for at least the next few days? All you guys who decry the big Neg -- let's hear from you.
I'll get started: I heard about an hour of BaD Radio today, and I liked it. Once again, Jake was not even close to being overexposed. T.C.'s Tickers were fine and I believe I noticed him popping one maybe once, and appropriately. Bob was his usual entertainingly erudite self, and Dan was on-topic. The whole thing had a tighter feel to it. It was a show I'd tune into again if I were a new listener.
