Just whose is that doggy in the window?

Early morning radio can be such entertainment. Bleary-eyed, barely awake, callers say the most unexpected and charming thing at this vulnerable time of the day. But today's early morning ramble will be remembered for another reason. I tuned in while a RJ conducted a quiz sponsored by HMV.

"I said, what does the 'H' in 'HMV' stand for?" the RJ repeated, prompting furious 'umm'ing and 'aah'ing from the caller. "Achcha, I'll do this: I'll give you a clue. Have you seen the HMV logo?"

The embarassed caller said no. This contest had clearly gone on for long enough.

"That's alright! The HMV logo has a small dog. Well, not that sma.."


Both paused momentarily, the caller sheepish at her mistake, the RJ probably chuckling, and a thousand Hutch employees on their way to work howling in approval.

I cringed when I heard her say that on the radio. Quite a sad day for HMV, not really His Master's Voice anymore.
