    Actually, investors in that company feel the same way but the President is too much of an egomaniac to recuse himself from advertising.

    They should make an ad for Bert's where Eugene throws Marshy under a bus, or where Eugene is operating a demolition truck to tear down Marshy's.

    You must have 990 for part of your drive... but, yeah, horns and faint siren sounds effects.

    IN order:

    CFRA : Get the start-of-day Ottawa news.
    Team1200 : In time for McGuire
    98.5 : To figure out the traffic into Montreal; should I go through Mirabel or down the west island ?!?
    I also like the Mario Dumont section on 98.5 (the broad drives me insane though).
    990 / 730 AM : Especially if the habs lost; like to hear the whining in both official languages. 730 used to have Pat Burns for a 1/2 hour section in the morning. He was very good. Now, they have Bob Hartley; I listen in maybe once a month.

    Then, I switch to CBC Radio ...

    Sometimes I listen to books instead of the radio; too much going on for that now though; election, wars and so on ...

    Funny thing is that I get to work from home about 2 a month and when I don't have the ridiculous drive, I kindda miss the radio ... Smile Just a bit though !

    So glad you bumped this one. I have a winner. Marnie Bennett of Bennett Pros, a Millionnaire Real-Estate investor. Worse than having your wisdom teeth pulled out on Monday afternoon, the playing pickup hockey Monday night, followed by Brass Band practice Tuesday night.

    OMG, especially the one where it's a signing contest? Her (non-singing) voice is *soooo* obnoxious in that one.

    Good one.

    One of the problems with a thread like this is that there is just so much *bad* stuff out there, and new "candidates" appear every week, it seems.

    Not TV or radio but there's an ad on HF for some gum or something that explodes over the screen and makes an awful and prolonged noise and then even when you "close" it when you try to select one of the subfora it just takes you to the gum's facebook page.

    Gah.

    That is the worst of them all I think. Cussing drives me nuts, whenever I go there it makes the worst noise at work. Dammit!
