Helicoptering

Postby edecker » Wed Dec 24, 2003 12:19 pm

I just started listening (12:18 pm est) and there is some pretty bad helicoptering going on.

Anyone else getting this?

It's been going on since 10 CST.

Same here in Dallas, I've been out of the office but as of 12:57 the chopper is hovering, sigh, off to "Choice.radio"

Helicopter still hovering. All we can do is report it on the "requests" line and hope somebody checks the mail.

Sounds like a small one, though. Oh, well.

The helicoptering is gone now, but so is everything else! Is that case for everyone?

I haven't heard any helicoptering today, but everytime I hear that coffee commercial, I think it is starting. :D

a percolator? it is? I was wondering. I wasn't sure I heard it. I route the sound feed through a 5.1 set-up to a surround sound receiver and keep getting the weird sound out of one of the back speakers.

Percolator, hmmm, whouda thought?

I can't vouch for it, I only repeat what I heard. (Sort of ties in to the "quotes" thread nicely, hmmm.)

Let's ask the resident expert, Nicole!

Nicole!

Nicole!

Now where has she gotten off to, just when we have a matter of some urgency...

Sorry, Haggis, She seems to be ingnoring me just now. For my part, I don't think it sounds like a percolator, but then, I haven't used one in years.
Ah! There she is! Nicole, is that a percolator we hear in the background of that coffee ad?
