    Didn't congress rule that broadcasting commercials louder than the content being viewed and/or listened to illegal?

    Somebody should look into that...

    Would be fun to hear Stern get riled up about a big fine for that then pretend he didn't know it was going on.

    Op with 33 posts starts dumb thread. First response is dumb and should be only response for remainder of thread. Any true bar poster knew what needed to happen here. :fil:

    JP gets it.
