On tonights Radio 2 prog "Drivetime" with Simon Mayo, he was intrigued by the name of Alberta town of Medicine hat, and why there were so many British listeners there. So curious was he that he invited the towns communications rep, Brandi Somethingorother, onto his show to explain all about it. She rambled on all about its size and location, proximity to Banff and Calgary, and all it had to offer, shopping, water park, entertainment etc. She even gave a lame reasoning as to its name. Not until some listeners rang/emailed in with an explaination the there was Suffield, the British training base, an hour and a half away did it all become apparant to him why there were so many Brit listeners. Now I know we havn't always been in favour there, but anyone who has drank in the "Sin Bin" ( the Assasinaboia inn, to those who havn't had the pleasure) and drank rounds of pitchers whilst tipping the cabaret act with dollar bills will know, squaddies have contributed to the local economy no end. Was she so embarrassed by our antics that we didn't deserve a mention on national radio?
