World Series Reference


#1

How did Ray reference David Ortiz’s World Series trophy in today’s show? Are they still recording those little segments?


#2

Sox won the Series in 2004 and 2007 as well as 2013. Maybe it is from then? I didn’t hear the segment.


#3

They still record the intro and other little bits.


#4

Yep, just bits to keep the re-runs ‘fresh’.


#5

It seems to be a new trend in TV as well. Some of my favorite TV shows (Gold Rush, Fast-N-Loud, etc), recycle previous material with some new stuff thrown in and call it “Fast-N-Loud: Revved Up,” for example, as opposed to “Fast-N-Loud: Recycled Old Episodes,” which is more true but doesn’t sound as appealing.


#6

Yes, Ray is still there and adds topical comments once in a while. Good idea, keeps the show seeming fresh. Ray referenced NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden a weeks ago too.


#7

I listen to the show when I can (maybe 10 times a year). So even if they are playing older shows…I probably missed it anyways…so it’s new to me.


#8

The brilliant thing about CarTalk is that the content is not topical. Diagnosis of a no-start problem on a 1989 Honda Accord is the same in 2003 as in 2013.
