Have you ever tried to get on Trading Mart? It is very difficult and frustrating because the line is always busy with so many people trying to get on. It is only a half hour program on weekday mornings. I believe its purpose is to be a 'service' to the radio stations listening audience. With so many people trying to get on, and it only being 30 minutes long, you would think that that 30 minute segment would take to the task at hand. Dialing every 10 seconds in an effort to get on, and continually getting a busy signal, it is obvious there are people on 'hold' and new callers cosistantly trying to get on. Sometimes you can try 3 or 4 days in a row and not be able connect. So instead of providing this 30 minute program, the host talks for five minutes about the do's and don'ts of marriage. On the same segment, five minutes of a story about putting soiled and wet underware on the radiators in grade school. Same day-same program, another five minutes of the temperature of the studio and its air conditioner. Meanwhile there is 15 minutes of 30, lost to the trivia while the listening audience is re-dialling and re-dialling. I would think a better place for the trivia would be throughout the rest of the day, between songs and such, because songs are on all day and "Trading Mart" is only a 30 minute program. What gives with this program designed to be a service to the community. Merrill's "Swap Shop' conducts a 30 minute, no-nonsense and professional program to their community. Has anyone else this opinion with Trading Mart?
