Mike Coleman-- the guy is one of the best production 
directors.  Actually, radio PDs and even some GMs have been begging 
the FCC for years to get rid of those long disclaimers-- you also 
hear them on car ads which have some motormouth explaining the terms 
and conditions for getting the special rates, but you can't 
understand a word the person is saying...  For whatever reason, the 
FCC has never moved on putting an end to the long list of whatevers 
and caveats-- I wish they would because it sounds awful.
