I got a RoboCall from Sherman and Tingle at my work number today promoting WDRV's A to Z game.

Sherman & Tingle are still around in Chicago. Huh. Did not know.

Yeah, they've been on the Drive for about a year, which seems like a bad fit for both parties, but not as bad as Mac was.

My wife and I each got a large piece of direct mail advertising their little game. Never listened to the show in my life. There is a
woman I work with that is a mic sniffer of theirs. She goes to their remotes and schmoozes with them and calls/texts into the show.

I listen to them a little bit each morning when I'm flipping around the dial. They're OK -- nothing great but nothing awful. What they do isn't all that different than what Mac and Pete McMurray did.

It's ironic that their claim to fame was doing a dead-on Eric and Kathy, because when I've flipped around, I've heard the same kind of "isn't it weird you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway" musing as their parody subject, except instead of leading into Alessia Cara, it leads into Def Leppard.

They do lots of "What happened when our wives booked flights for a recent trip?" or "What happened when Sherman's neighbor did ________ ? Stay tuned after the break to find out."

Their ratings are way up compared to Macs, but Mac says that's because they give money away. I've never listened to their show before.
