WHAT?! A heavy spot load of automobile glass that's trade? That's a helluva lot of auto glass! Especially in a state that gives auto glass replacement free if you have comprehensive auto insurance.  

Methinks that N.G. is a paying customer who got a lot of freebies when WCRN was live (and that type of format allowed that to happen). I've listened for a bit, and still heard National Glass advertising spots quite frequently. Sorry, I just can't see it as trade.

Now if it was a RESTAURANT...


as for the "new" format, welllllll...
