About a year or so ago I had breakfast with Dion and WFTL’s Joyce Kaufman at a Diner in South Florida. Dion was recalling one of the luckiest days of his life which occurred while he still was attending High School in the Bronx even though he had a hit record on the charts. One day he came home to discover a bunch of “Soprano” type guys sitting around his kitchen.
The one who appeared to be the boss man said to him, hey Dion your old man here was braggin’ on ya down at the club last night, he claims you have a big record out or something. We can help you with that sorta stuff but first I need to hear the record. About halfway through the listen the spokesperson takes the needle off the record, turns to Dion’s Dad and says … Your Son sounds like he is singing through a dish rag and with that they got up and left.

Now that Nielson has paid around 1.3 Billion for Arbitron would you predict the ratings are going to get more reliable or not. My money is on a lot worse as they look for ways to service that debt. Time for America to do what Canada did which was to own part of the Rating company.

When asked my beautiful friend Marnie about her love life (hoping she didn’t have one) she claimed she was currently dating three and a half Men. Of course I asked her about the 1/2 Man! She told me he was a nice guy whom she invited up to her place when he drove her home after a very pleasant evening. He claimed he couldn’t because he had an early morning meeting.
