We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...Robert from Sturgeon Bay who Wednesday took the time this week to write an e-mail to the radio station complaining that WAPL has been carrying the Packer games all season. Writes Robert, "I would like to comment that I dislike the fact that you air the football games such as the Packers game on WAPL. In my thoughts WAPL is a music station, so PLAY MUSIC! Don’t air football games". Robert goes on to air his mistaken belief that our ratings are "spiraling downward" and he apparently believes that this is because of us airing Packer games. Because if there's anything Wisconsinites don't care about, it’s the Green Bay Packers.
For not understanding that on game day, there's a lot more people around these parts who prefer to back the Pack over Back in Black.
For not comprehending that there are considerably fewer area residents who when the Packers are playing would rather listen to us play Stairway to Heaven than listen to the Pack demolish the Steelers' so called Stairway to Seven.
And for being anti-football in Wisconsin on Super Bowl week which is sort of like trying to start a DARE Chapter at Charlie Sheen's house.
We are proud to name Robert from Sturgeon Bay (who is entitled to his own opinion, just as he's entitled to change the station) as this week's Rick and Len Show... Weenie of the Week.
