Ton of stuff coming up on our WMMR calendar! Traffic. iPhone 5 Out Today! Kathy can't wait to get it. People want the story of having the new iPhone the first day it is out. Waiting at the Manhattan Apple Store is like a social event. Caller Vlad from AT&T says nobody comes to AT&T to buy the iPhone. Kathy can't get her bluetooth to work in her car, it's akin to a medical emergency. Waiting In Line To Buy Things Preston waited in line for Rush tix; Nick waited for Eric Clapton tix. Kathy waited for Black Friday. Playoff tickets are worthy of waiting in line for. Caller felt he would have started a mob if he got screwed by the lottery system. Kathy was in a balloon line at a Party City. Steve would wait for a more convenient time rather than stand in line. Worst lines are the ones filled with parents buying things for their kids.

Shrinkage in Cold Water. 6-Year-Old Runs Up Parents' Credit Card Playing Game Online games can charge money for game items. Parents thought the amounts were fake currency, not real money.

Caller Nicole sets up “no in-app purchases” on kids' phones. Most lucrative 1-800 line used to be the Hulk Hogan Hotline. James Van Der Beek He doesn't hear the “Dawson's Creek” theme enough. Shooting “Backwards” in Philadelphia.
