I just have to make a quick post to say how glad I am that I don’t have to listen to Ruth Seymour berating me to join KCRW anymore. Not that I mind the fund-raising drive. I actually listen to it all week and even enjoy some of the banter between a few of the hosts. Especially Warren Olney. But Ruth Seymour’s segments drive me nuts and, like a lot of people…like most people even, I could do without hearing her voice ever again.
For the record, I waited until the very last minute, pledged $50 and got an Arctic Monkeys CD. I only heard one premium all week that I was remotely interested in, and I turned on radio‚Äîafter three straight days of listening all day‚Äîjust in time to hear them announce that they were all gone. Maybe I’ll win a Saab convertible.
