Often I wonder if political polling in Australia will be done from now on by the same people who polled me randomly over the phone back in 1999.
I was asked to detail my radio listening habits for the day when I answered my share house fixed line phone one Friday night in wintertime Melbourne.
I can remember roughly what I said. From 6am until 9 – RRR breakfasters. From 9am until about 3pm – JJJ. 3pm until 5pm 3LO. 5pm until late The Tote Hotel jukebox.
I recall the woman on the other end if the line saying that my listening habits didn’t comply with their strict listening variability requirements.
Load of shit.
Never believe a poll.
