Tyrades! By Danny Tyree If you’re frustrated by the skimpiness of “fun-size” candy, wait until you hear some “fun-size” songs. On August 1, Calgary Top 40 station AMP Radio became the first station in the world to switch to the new QuickHitz format.

With Congress mercifully away on its August recess, now is a good time to evaluate what’s happened and what might happen regarding the ever-contentious, endless immigration haggle.
