Reimers' Random Report: May 23. 2014
Yesterday, during the time slot usually occupied by Harry Allen's "Non Fiction" program, Berthold Reimers popped up with a surprise report to the listeners. Perhaps this had been announced, but I somehow missed it and I assume many of you also did. Frankly, unless you don't want people to hear it, I don't see any sense in airing a live report to the listeners at 2:20 PM on a Friday—especially not when it is the start of a holiday weekend.
So, here is the entire segment. It will be interesting to see what you think of it. Personally, I did not find it as encouraging as Reimers and co. obviously intended it to be. He is still the rambling fool and the focus is still on getting the listeners to send in more money. Notice his remark—almost an aside—that the current drive is likely to be extended! I think we can bet on it. Again, we hear no mention of improving the station's programming, which, of course, should be a major topic. It never is.
