Newstalk 1010 is airing a spot for Bernie Safe *#$!?! or something, where a smoke detector sounds off, and it's so annoying and alarming (half-assed pun intended.)

Not sure if it's the levels, or if some of the piercing effect could have been adjusted in the production so the ad would startle you, just not STARTLE YOU. I've heard it multiple times, and can never get past the unhappy thrill of the 'shrill shill.'

Here's one for 12:36 -- Leafs have their own postage stamp (but when was the last time anyone licked a postage stamp?)

Don't be jealous. I'm actually on a grandfathered Smartphone plan where I only have 500mb of data.
That's where they REALLY get me if I am not careful. It's very easy to go over.
(all smartphone plans with Rogers now start at a 1G minimum)

Noticed that just after midnight early Monday, RB was airing a show I haven't heard on 1010 in a very long time - the Best of Humble & Fred, apparently culled from their podcast. Their website has that Coast-to-Coast clone, Beyond Reality Radio, listed but that never airs on weekend nights, generally replaced with Jerry Agar and Jim Richards rerolls. I'm not sure if this is permanent or how long it will continue, but H&F were on CFRB for a while before they were replaced by nightly reruns and/or syndicated weirdness.
