Concert

I'm losing my hearing. This is literal, and no joke. I'd blame the loud music I listened to, but seems to be a family trait from my Irish mother's side.  Her parents and two of her four siblings have all had hearing aids...still do in the case of the siblings.

Of course it is their job to get listeners...and guess this shouldn't surprise me on how they do it...I've been listening long enough. My morning usually starts on Toronto AM 640 listening to John Oakley...a guy with big intellect and big wit. Then, depending on mood, I either flip to Colin Cowherd from ESPN sports or Stephanie Miller with her comedy/left wing slant...and though she calls herself Liberal, I don't agree with that at all.
