RADIO-RELATED STUFF

It appears WGIT in Puerto Rico has become an all religious news station. This sounds like kind of a neat format. Wish I had one in listening range.

A while ago a city counselman in a certain city complained that he was given only a couple minutes airtime on a radio station while his opponent was given nearly an hour. The thing was, the opponent was a scheduled guest where as the other counselman was a caller, in the line with all the other people phoning the show. If he wanted as much time as his opponent, the counselman should have called the host's producer and booked a guest spot.

A Canadian radio station pulled an ad that began airing on Remembrance Day. It said, "The only thing to remember is partying the night before." Who the heck thought running that commercial was at all a good idea in the first place?
