Times are tough in public radio. Here, Bill Littlefield, host of "Only a Game" behaves rather unseemly over a stale bagel.

Only one technique has proven successful at luring Tom and Ray into the studio on time.

While Ray frantically tries to obfuscate a puzzler, Doug reviews the ground rules before every show:
1. Remember to talk about cars at least a little bit.
2. Keep the calls under two hours each.
3. If you have to go, go now.

When Doug is done, Tom shows his deep respect for these sage words of wisdom.
