The Air America / WCRB Problem
Wed Dec 20 06:41:05 EST 2006
The advertiser is a nursery/garden center in, I think, Bedford. Not sure of
the name--Russell's, I believe. All spots for the business seem to be voiced
by the advertiser's management and personnel. I used to get really upset at
their pronunciation of poinsettia; I could have sworn that there was no i
before the final a, but when I finally consulted a dictionary, I learned
that I was wrong and the sponsor was correct.
