Can You Judge A Book By Its Cover?


Do you think that you can tell the kind of person someone is just by looking at them? If so, what exactly are you evaluating? Are you using your brain or your gut? Looks or feel? Is your first impression useful or dismissive? Could making instant judgements lead to prejudice? What do YOU think?

On It's A Question of Balance with Ruth Copland this Saturday we ask - 'Can you judge a book by its cover?’ New research suggests that the old adage ‘you can’t judge a book by its cover’ may actually not be true. It seems that people can tell quite a bit about a person by looking at them – whether a man would make a good father, for example. But what do you think?

Join the conversation! Call Ruth with your thoughts on 831 479 1080 this Saturday between 8-9 PM or email comments to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Saturday Speical: Will the Traffic Lackey Change?

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!
