    This Tony guy should be appreciated it for what he's done. Instead. you're saying that the station scripted a ridicule of him to sell ads to a company providing sanitation theatre?

    And your position is that's cool.

    That's why we are where we are.
    You take sports radio way too seriously.

    This.

    Also, I'm surprised people listen to "sports" radio.

    But, they weren't talking about sports. They were talking about a deadly disease, specifically someone's efforts to prevent the spread of that disease in their community. So, if you're accusing me of thinking that is a serious topic and an odd one to use to serve up some light hearted banter, then cool. Because of course it is, and of course I think it's serious. I mean, if Traber was "light heartedly" mocking him, for, say, wearing a condom, scripted or not, I would think that's stupid, too. Because, of course it would be.

    And, yes, I understand Jim Traber is a meat head. That's what he's there for. But usually he is a meat head about sports and I do not, as you say, take that seriously at all.

    I was listening again yesterday, and I felt like they were borderline unethical yet again. This may be ticky-tacky, btw. I guess Al has been having a really difficult time getting his second shot scheduled, and he has been getting really frustrated as he's leaving the country for this trip to columbia. Well, Jim was getting frustrated and said something like, "there's got to be somebody we could call and put in a word for Al and just get him scheduled like right now. I mean, there's got to be a way to get him on a list." So then they ask for people to start calling in with advice/tips on where to go for Al. A bit later, Jim said something to the effect of "we're going to get you that shot Al. we're going to reach out here and get it for you no matter what." They were reaching out all over the state.

    I get it, Jim, and the station, are trying to help Al out, but what makes Al any more special than any other senior living in rural oklahoma who is also trying to get their shots? They're using their platform to get Al preferential treatment and that's just wrong, imo. Especially because Al did this to himself by scheduling that stupid trip before being fully vaccinated. Makes me mad and is borderline unethical, imo. I think I'm about done listening to this station...

    That was just another thing they made over dramatic which is their thing. A few times Al has mentioned that all he really has to do is get a negative test result within 48 hours of boarding the plane in order to get in Columbia.

    It's probably a peace-of-mind things for Al, but if he wants that peace of mind, why schedule the trip until you're vaccinated? Honestly just wish the guy would stay home. Sounds like he caught covid when it first went around. Hate to see him catch it again or get stuck over there in columbia. Also, who travels to columbia anyway?

    I'm pretty sure he leaves next week. The second shot wouldn't even provide full immunity until after he returns. I agree he should just stay home for awhile.

    Some interesting stuff in that article. Al just went there a few weeks ago. He said so much stuff is closed that his itinerary consisted pretty much of hanging out at one or two bar/restaurants that were open. I really don't know why he's in such a hurry to go back. I sometimes think he wants his trips to create outlandish radio material more than he's interested in the trip itself.

    We all know why Al travels to these places and it’s not for the food or booze.

    Um, what do we "all know?" I've seen all sorts of bizarre comments on message boards about Al but I have never seen anything remotely resembling proof of anything. This kind of innuendo is gross.

    Al is the one guilty of innuendo. Almost every trip he talks about young girls that he hit on.
