*Cheers to Chicago’s garbage collector’s. As far as I am concerend the most underrated, undervalued, and underpaid profession in Chicago. Just let your garbage accumulate for a week. You will see what I mean.

*Red light and stop signs mean STOP. That goes for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers of bigger vehicles.

*To those of you who think it is beneath you to get out of your cars and go to the door and press the door-bell, that is called civilization. Hunking to allert those who are waiting for you, and everybody else in the neighborhood, that you have arrived is uncivilized.

*When you are double-parked, remember others have a right to not wait for you.

*About Chicago radio: Has anybody else noticed that almost everybody that works on WCKG on weekends is in someway related to Steve Dahl?

    Holy shit I thoguht I was the only one, on pretty much all of those but yeah, WCKG is ridiculous. Stece Dahl is a fossil and so is Kevin Matthews but for some reason, Steve runs everything there. I gave up on trying to find any of them funny anymore and just listen to Howard…HEY NOW!

    I agree — hunking is a terrible way to get someone’s attention. On my street there’s always some guy standing outside his girlfriend’s house yelling “You need a ticket… to the gun show” and then kissing his own biceps.

    ‘CKG may be the worst FM station in Chicago. It’s sad to see just how much Dahl runs the joint. But the thing that’s most annoying about that station is it’s stop-sets. I swear, all the commercial breaks are at least six minutes long. I don’t actually mind commercial breaks that much, but when they’re that long, it’s too much.

    you do know that garbage collectors in chicago make an average of $56K a year, don’t you. i really don’t think they’re underpaid.

    I did not know they get paid that much. I will say it is well deserved.

    Steve Dahl is kinda funny sometimes. But I can’t help but hate him for what he’s done to that station. His son Matt is a fool if he thinks he has any future in radio. He just doesn’t have the voice for it. Nor the personality. His eclectic taste in music, Pearl Jam and the Dead? What a tool. Notice how Matt’s co-hosts aren’t allowed to have a last name? That’s all Steve’s doing. And please someone give me a nickel for every time Steve brings up Disco Demolition!
