Next season?


[slight reverb under:] We couldn't be more pleased to announce that The Age
of Persuasion is returning for its fourth season on CBC Radio One, and
Sirius Satellite 137.

We invite you to gather 'round the wireless for the season premiere
beginning Monday, January 4th, '10, in the time slots occupied this fall by
our friends at White Coat, Black Art.

Until then, Terry and Mike will be busy persuading folks to check out their
book: "The Age of Persuasion: How Marketing Ate Our Culture," to be
published on 27 October by Knopf Canada.

Watch this space for more details, while we put on some fresh coffee and
fire up the ol' AOP console.
