Dear very nice people who work for radio stations

    You do realize, don't you, that when you dial into a conference call and hit the "hold" button, the live feed from your station that serves as your "hold music" is broadcast to everyone on the conference call, which then grounds to a halt?

    I didn't think so.

    Oh, it wouldn't happen to be one closely associated with a team you cover, would it?

    Speaking of work, lots of people read this site from work. Those who do, not to mention our friendly moderators, would appreciate thread titles without profanity, especially on the Journalism board.

    I'll lay 2-to-5 odds that it's my local all-sports station, which appears to be run by a group of kids from the local middle school.

    A few times an hour they give the "local" update and I want to yank the radio out of my dashboard and throw it under a semi every time they run yesterday's. " . . . and it's a big day over at Tomato Can U. when they take on Cupcake State tonight in a battle for the division lead . . . "

    Hey, stupid, go buy a newspaper: That game was played LAST night!

    I can count on this kind of brilliance at least once a week.

    I heard one like that this morning. "The Local U soccer team will have a watch party at 3:30 this afternoon." Nope...that was 3:30 yesterday afternoon.

    Don't tell them that. Then they'll promptly go on the air and read all your stories verbatim like they're breaking news without giving you one ounce of credit.
