    Strange. Bachman’s show, for something that’s on the radio, actually makes you want to tune in. And he feeds you something worthwhile when you do.
    He still has a lot of people’s respect.
    For a guy whose music totally sucks like Archies bubblegum ditties, and does a radio show talking to himself like a pompous, vain semi-hillbilly, I like him very much.

    Does that help to clarify?

    I’m very fond of Hubert, just as you are, but this first announcement by him is not his best work.
    It has touch of flim-flam to it.
    It’s the first time I’ve felt like he was talking to us like he thought we were stupid.
    No one would dare to put ads on the radio service. That would be game over, for the radio service and CBC credibility. So kind of a no-brainer.
    And as for buying American TV shows? Wheel and Jeopardy were already the last straw. That’s one thing every news article has agreed on, left and right.

    This caring gesture of sacrificing a small percentage of a bonus that’s still a year away. seems trivial.
    If you make $200,000 a year like I do, and the automatic bonus would have given me as much as a total income of $240,000, I’ll still really only be out $20,000, a part of which would have gone to taxes.
    But it’s all speculation because I won’t have to deal with it until a year from now, and things could change before then.
    In return, I’m guaranteed a job, same lifestyle, and protection from the ravenous lynch mob.
    I hope.
    And in the mean time, everyone, including you, is free to look for another, and better paying, job.
    Executives don’t really lose anything at this point.
    Which I believe is, in general, how the system is supposed to work.

    Personally, Hubert hasn’t given me a reason to disrespect or even dislike him slightly yet.

    Now Randy Bachman on the other hand is really full of shit; much more so than the average semi-famous musician that get his own radio show.

    So now I have a blog post I don’t understand; plus a comment of my own that I don’t really understand either. WTF are you doing to me Allan?
