OH MY GOD! -- The high-priced consultant was right -- BIGTIME!!
He WARNED me that making such a DRASTIC program change to the afternoon drive program would result in a MASSIVE outcry from people who would be offended by the new Happy Hour program with Dave and the Traffic Lackey.
But I NEVER expected the hundreds of angry emails to crash the server!
Most of them dislike the Lackey's attitude, especially his nasty treatment of callers.
So I couldn't stand it any longer.
I had a coming to Jesus meeting with the Traffic Lackey and asked him to change: to become kind and respectful towards callers, especially the ones who insult him!
He said he would AND appear with his partner Dave Michaels to speak candidly with you on the next KSCO Special, this Saturday 10 AM to 12 Noon, right here on we hear you loud and clear and know you mean business radio AM 1080 KSCO!
This week's DrFutureShow took a few turns in Google's autonomous cars. With new software geared to handle city driving, Google is teaching their vehicles to avoid stalled cars in the lane ahead, and to pause at corners as bicycles pass from behind. City driving means the cars are getting smarter as they learn to avoid potential accidents, which can happen with much more frequency at busy intersections compared with flowing traffic on the Interstates. Anyone willing to ride in a Google robot Taxi?
And speaking of safety technologies, law enforcement is using Twitter to predict crime, provided it’s the right kind of crime. Say what? Tune in to the KSCO Podcast here. Past shows, Blog, and Links for the latest show are available on the www.drfutureshow.com page.
In the first hour, we ask questions that matter, focusing on the deeper issues underlying events and politics, weighing both sides of the weekly topic. Join the conversation by calling Ruth on 831 479 1080. In the second hour, we balance the intellectual with the creative by featuring in-depth interviews with local, national, and international guests from the Arts. Tune in Saturday evenings 8-10 and discover It's A Question Of Balance!
