One of the things that annoys me to no end about commercial radio in this
country...overannouncing the station name. (probably a subliminal reason
why when I did my gig on the college stations I would make it sound like a
"network" - on your station for the best new music - 22 minutes after the
hour - etc. etc.
Hell with all the promos for other shows I rand during my show...you bet
that people remembered what station they were listening to. :-)
