Hey Buzz!

I used to have a job that entailed a lot of driving around the country. Once, while travelling between Atlanta and Birmingham, Alabama, I had the luxury of listening to deep-south AM radio. What was great about it was that four two straight hours, the programming entirely c0nsisted of people calling in, announcing things they were selling, leaving messages for people who had no phones or looking for directions. It was basically a radio-message board.

So I figured I'd try that here.

Hey Buzz! Give me a call!

That stretch of radio between Atlanta and Birmingham has to be more interesting than this:

Sorry, but those guys are awful. Worse than verbal flatulence.

It wasn't confined to the South. All over Wisconsin up until the late 80's (pre-talk radio I'm guessing) lots of AM stations had "Ask Your Neighbor" shows. It was where Aunt Lilly could ask for the recipe for those lemon bars she had in that restaurant a few Sundays back. People also sold things, offered plant advice, etc. It was old people's and homemaker's radio.
