Howie Carr's giving away his "Jag", image by Banks from thephoenix.com
Normally, I am not one to avidly listen to talk radio, keeping the news/weather on the morning and evening drive, as the process of listening to a radio host can be time-consuming and raise one’s blood pressure. That said, there is one exception, as one day several years ago, I happened to find the News/Weather was stuck in between programming for one Howard Lawrence Carr and I was hooked. (Granted in limited time frames). From the guests to Howie’s ability to either make one agree or disagree so strongly one wishes to punch the dashboard, to the irreverent call in lines, Police Blotter sequence and of course, the death pool, Howie Carr and the program that spans New England weekdays from 3pm to 7pm is one of the little oasis of conservative – independent thought in a sea of blue.
Therefore, when this gem showed up in my inbox and it really is the season for giving Thanks, as well as the start of the Christmas Consumer Crush, what a better way to showcase both the spirit of the season and a fine New England personality?
So, tune in, who knows you, might get a chance to meet Howie, win a Jaguar and have a very Merry Christmas. He may even have one of his latest books (being a rather prolific writer) on hand to sign for you and yours.
