    Not that anyone cares, or possibly even knows what I'm talking about.

    But I just thought I would share.

    I would bet it was easy this morning - the middle morning of a three-day holiday weekend.

    Not quite the same thing.

    I'm recording all the :10 blurbs that say "This traffic report brought to you by...." for the remainder of October and half of November.

    Problem is the salespeople who write this shit up turn it into a blivet. Trying to cram :15 or :20 worth of script into the :10 allotted.

    Then I hear it from them and the program director "Why did you sound crammed and rushed?"

    If I don't cram it, I hear it from the General Manager "Our product is time, you don't give the client extra".

    bleh bleh.....

    Get yourself a stopwatch. See if you can do this in :10 or less, and sound decent and not rushed, and properly enunciated.

    "Toyota Owners, now's the time to get new tires at your local toyota dealer's tire sale.
    October 30th through November 6th, buy 3 tires and the fourth is on them.
    Nothing compares to the expertise of toyota's factory trained technicians.
    See dealer for details".



    I also like how they use numbers instead of writing the word out. And use "thru" instead of "through". Makes the script seem shorter so it will fit in the maximum of 4 lines allowed. Still takes the same amount of time to say, dumbasses.

    I could do it ten seconds, but then I would sound like a cattle auctioneer.

    I can't and enunciate to my satisfaction. I bet it does sound hokey for those who can.
