Read It. Learn It. Live It.
I'm really sad to see Cat Thomas leaving KLUC. He's an animal. I remember that CC launched a station against him and he issued a memo to everyone in the building that basically called for them to put the competitor's heads on pikes and march down the Strip screaming for more death and bloodshed. In an era of "Let's just try to get along", it was kind of refreshing.
James Cridland shared this from Global Radio in the UK.

There was a station in BC that marketed their programming as having an embedded tone that was annoying to mosquitoes so listeners were advised to play the station loudly whenever they were outside.
And now from Troy McCallum where it looks like people have taken the bait:
I've come up with an idea to help combat the cold and the competitors Christmas music... I have no idea how well it will work just yet as we've just launched it today. "THERMAL AUDIO" - boom 973 is the first Canadian Station using Thermal Audio Technology. Listen to boom and your car will be 2 degrees warmer thanks to Thermal Audio.
On Air: the Announcers are doing quick breaks about it over song intros. We are running some quick sweep Ids as well.
Online:We have a list of makes and models that have the ability as well as a like to provide the history/invention and technology behind it.

...you should occasionally spot check them to see what the airstaff has posted. From a competitions' PD/Morning Guy, when asked "What do you do when you're not at the station", he wrote, "Teaching my baby boy to hit the post."
J and Shelly at B-96 hit gold with a topic about a woman who was complaining that her boyfriend was not attractive enough for her.
You REALLY want a hot button? Kids. I worked with a woman whose long time boyfriend had kids from his first marriage and she wouldn't marry him because his kids were ugly. (Her term) That? That would blow out the phone system.
