Commercial Stopset Times/Variations

Another webcaster and I both run two stopsets per hour every hour, two minutes in length each. I run my stopsets at 20 after and 50 after, believing keeping the breaks an equal distance apart in the hour should minimize commercial fatigue. I picked the time (common positions for traditional over-th...

Odd Snowfall or Aliens?

Doc: It snowed in our area yesterday and outside of our radio station is a split-rail fence. I can see three segments of the fence from my office window. The top rails on the left and right segments have about 1” of snow, but the top rail in the middle segment has about 4” of snow. How can that be?...

Medical 1-10 Pain Scale

My question is…Do doctors compare my rating to some type of st...

Re: Bad/Useless TV Commercials (Spots)

Doc: The Diet Coke TV spot should be added to the list of useless TV commercials. And that’s from a huge company. I would think the company’s ad agency, or someone in the company, would know better. Obviously not. - JL JL : I agree with the Diet Coke spots-a complete waste of money. And here are ev...

Put a Ring On It Question

I’m not in the radio business and found your column when I was searching things on the Internet. I’m old, so I’m not very good at that. My question is: I heard a song on the radio in my car the other day, but the announcer didn’t say who sang the song or the title of the song. The song was clearly ...
