  1. I was driving around Alberta this summer and tuned into Radio One, as I usually do. What a shock. Maybe it’s because it is summer and the regular hosts are on vacation, but all I heard was female hosts with unpronouncable names talking with female “victims”.

    The theme of these presentations was “I am marginalized because …” and then the guests proceded to whine on and on and on about how they can’t make it an this awful patriarchal society.

    Thank God I brought my downloaded podcasts so I could listen to topical items from the Internet broadcasters.

    I did manage to catch the rebroadcasts of the weekday afternoon show from CHED on Sunday. Apparently they ran out of infomercials so they repeated the weekday shows – minus the commercials. It was actually quite good. But with commercials …. I would find it unlistenable.

    Perhaps voluntary restrictions on commercials would help private broadcasters retain listeners?

    Remember us, the listeners? How many cars can we possibly buy? How many times can we have our air ducts cleaned? Enough, already.
