Most mornings when I drive to work, I listen to Gene and Julie (and the other Julie, who I used to think was named Jaleta Hardy … but that’s another funny story) on 103.7 Lite FM in DFW.  Every now and then I hear them talk about various businesses or services they have used – it might be carpet cleaning or a diet program or eye drops.
