Then, there are the callers who, in the course of the conversation,
drop names of other stations and/or talent.  I once asked a caller if
he'd consider standing in line at Burger King and ask for a Big Mac or
even get going a boastful conversation on the topic of Egg McMuffins.
Actually, it seems that hearing other stations calls on other stations
is more common than in the past - but, call me old fashioned.  If they
want a mention, let 'em buy one!  Sales on line two!
