McCain Palin promo is god awful. How could it NOT be?

Well I guess this is better than Hank Williams Jr.'s McCain-Palin song.

"Palin thinks realistically". Somebody had fun writing that.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/9/16 3:26pm Caryn:

Sweet lord, the most improbably thing about these promos is how 1950s they feel. And just really bad. You'd think campaigns would be shoveling money at people not to sing these anywhere.

  Wed. 3/9/16 3:46pm Lyle:

This brass section sounds a bit like the TJB, but the trumpet bore is too wide for Herb. Guessing this is the Mariachi Brass horn section, which one could secure for far less. I gigged with them a couple of times at Six Flags in Fort Worth. Drummer was insane. Played on Cheracol D about half the time, but he had such a big kit that no one noticed. Good times.
  Wed. 3/9/16 3:46pm Marie:

Hey there, I've heard this song a lot but I never grow tired of it. I have new appreciation of since I lost my dad. Thanks Irwin!

Terre T had a sting board? Wazzat? You mean the recordings of brief snatches like, "I love you" & "Do the Mouse, yeah"?

I think Terre had a recording of someone saying "I've got pictures of you . . . " or something like that.

I'm considering the swag for life option. Could you explain the details? How much swag is this option worth? Is it really for life? So many questions ..

     Wed. 3/9/16 5:41pm Listener Robert:

Come to think of it, a good deal of chan. 13's programming had been on chan. 11 before chan. 13 became educational. "Firing Line" was not that early, though it was effectively paid programming, in that it was sponsored by National Review.

I do fondly recall chan. 13's kiddie programming when it was WNTA, and sadly recall when it was replaced by snow, and then realizing it wasn't our TV's fault that chan. 13 didn't come in any more.
