Poll Of The Day!!
What do you think? Should a radio station refuse advertising from a business, organization, or Television Network based on the fact that some folks in the audience perceive them to be tied to terrorism? Is there truth in the perception? Do we need to be more objective? In case you don't know what I'm talking about, This radio station, and many others, has aired a commercial for Al Jazeera Television Network, a network that is trying to gain an American audience.
Should radio stations air ads of this type?
My wife and I aren't in a hurry to choose our next car, so we're seeking public input. We're leaning towards something in the "pony car" category and we've been able to test drive both a late model Mustang and a 2013 Camaro. Have you voted yet in our "Pony Car Throwdown?" If not...please do!!
BTW, it's been suggested that I take every one who votes on an actual test drive - which I'm planning on doing! Stay tuned and check back often to find out how.
