  1. I wanted to compliment you on frequently being the best thing in the Talkers daily newsletter. Your current post on getting in front of station gaffes is excellent; as you effectively note, the cover-up is usually worse than the crime!

    Your recent column on words and phrases that don’t work on the air is priceless.

    One word that I would add to your list is “luusy.” Why? Because it just sounds lousy! A program director told me this many years ago and it is still true. I wince whenever I hear it on the air.

    Another personal gripe is the word Judaism when it is mispronounced “Judy-ism.” As my rabbi said, the root word is Judah, of the Twelve Tribes, so Judah-ism is correct. He added, “I’m sure that Judy is very nice, but we don’t worship her!”

    Keep up the good work,
