Dear Chum Radio Stations,

The following letter is meant for the program directors of CHUM FM, 101.5 Energy FM, C100, Bounce 91.7, Majic 100, Kool 107.3 and 103.5 QM.FM

Every year, Canadians suffer through a crisis of epic proportions and quite frankly, I’m sick of it, so I’m going to say what everyone else is thinking: no one cares about Breakfast in Barbados. We hate hearing how much fun you are having, we don’t want to know how soft the sand feels and we don’t want to hear about “the funniest thing that just happened with NKOTB.”

For years, you’ve been sending listeners down and thanks to Tourism Barbados, you’ve been showing them a good time, lord knows they probably deserve it. But then to broadcast every morning about how “awesome your trip is”, is just bragging. Simply put, that is the last thing we want to hear when we are stuck in traffic, fog, rain or snow.

Today marks the last day of the stupid contest and I couldn’t be happier. I hope the airlines lose all your luggage, and then you have to listen to all your friends talk about how much luggage we all have. We are going to talk about all the different colours and how handy it is having luggage.

That’s great that you have contests that send people all over the world, but to make your listeners who didn’t win, listen to it for an entire week is a bit ridiculous.

Of course, consider this note null and void if I finally win next year.


Mike Morrison
