Hey now, every time the word snow is mentioned in a weather forecast for
a weekday morning listenership on AM's all over the place skyrockets...

Just FYI especially when I am on a local AM I make a pronouncement at the
beginning of the snow season, that I promise to give you up to the minute

lie to you!  Listeners know not to call, those other folks, well.....too
