    Does anyone else think that Mr. LaJoie needs to "back her down"? I don't mean any disrespect, but I had to change the station this morning.

    He can tell really good stories, but how many times do we have to hear about the seat? I think we all know its the best seat on the market by now.

    Maybe he doesn't get paid, but gets free mention of his company? If so, then fine.

    I know D.Poole isn't gone that many times, but I think I know enough that I could go out and sell the seat.

    Although I did find out today that William is blind. I didn't know that about Jan from Arizona for a long time, either. Would have probably never picked up on it had BagMan not mentioned it. I noticed he is sprinkling tid-bits of knowledge like that throughout the broadcast since the "merger". :clap:

    The chemistry between Bags and D. Poole makes TMD the best show on S128/XM104. Maybe that's what I'm missing....

    Nate gets asked a lot about USA Today when he's co-hosts.

    I don't think it's a big deal. His product improves the safety of the drivers we all love...:)

    Randy is passionate about his seat and driver safety. It's like Biffle and animals. Once he gets started you can't stop. That's why their passionate. They feel strongly about their cause.

    I used to think like that too, but have come to realize the Randy is truly in it for the safety of the sport and not to make buck, (which he certainly needs to do to keep on going).

    I've got no problem with it all especially when it helps keep drivers safe.

    Have you listened to the 4-hour midday infomercial for Richard Childress Racing, Childress Winery and the Richard Childress Museum? I can take more of Randy, because he's in it for safety reasons. Choc, on the other hand, makes me change the channel many days.

    Funny you mention that because I just finished listening to the replay from yesterday was thinking about how much RCR gets mentioned and I did fast forward through a lot of it. I think I would rather listen to 8 hours of Manifold and his screeches.

    Amen to that.

    LOL! Jeez, I still miss "The Driver's Seat". That was a great show to have on after TMD. I wish they could bring that back.

    Any word on any changes for next year?

    Randy I LOVED when he was racing and cringe when he is on Sirius. BUT the times I have heard him talk about his seats a caller ASK. So it is not the infomercial that turns me off. I LOVE David and Bagman debating skills ... Randy just does not have it for me.

    Randy isnt the greatest co-host by far. But I agree that his infomercial skills are generally brought upon by other people. Unlike the garbage that is trading paint where its nothing but yelling and screaming about nuts and the gift shop. I pray that Jan 1 2009 they change that show up again.

    I see your point. I hadn't really noticed that much, but I go to meetings and such while Tradin' Paint is on.

    I fast forward on my SP4 to the interviews. I only have so much time in the day!

    I must agree with you that it is true that he doesn't bring it up.

    Please don't get me wrong, I like listening to his stories about the yester-year of NASCAR.

    I enjoy listening to those stories too. I also love when Buddy Baker is on, he has great and funny stories too.
  12. these guys are just giving a retrospect of their careers and lives... the seats are what he is doing now, I could care. We all probably have something we just go on and on about that drives others nuts...

    AMEN..........................Chocolate has never worked for another team to my knowledge. So where else can he pull experiences and stories from. I will admit I dont listen to every second of every show, but Im not gone very long until I find myself back on 128. They ALL get on my nerves sometimes, but if we were on the radio, we would get everyones nerves from time to time. They all had to grow on me in the begining, hell I been listening to Moody for nearly two years and he is STILL growing on me!:rofl:
    They are all human(and full of crap from time to time), like the rest of us.:egypt:

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    And yes, I know from experience.
