There were some strong opinions voiced on the current edition of Trucker Radio news & Talk, available for download or streaming now on TruckerRadioTalk.com.
Pro drivers Harry Rudolfs, Mark Lee and Alfy Meyer all had lots to say about the bitching and complaining they say has become too prevalent in the industry. They voiced strong opinions about the industry – including insights into why it’s really not a bad way to make a living.
Of course, some of those comments are sure to ruffle some feathers with listeners. Even host Stan Campbell got into it. Here’s an excerpt from his monologue:
“As the host of the Trucker Radio Show for the past nine years, I’ve been an outside observer and as such, I have heard a lot of opinions from all sides about poor driver pay and conditions, to the shortage of qualified drivers,” he said. “Each side has a legitimate beef but being that outside observer of the trucking industry, I feel like I am peering in a peephole at an exclusive private club…As a promotions and marketing guy…I see an industry that desperately needs to promote itself to the general public but especially the millenials.”
Campbell said this episode of Trucker Radio News & Talk is more provocative than past editions.
“I specifically asked our driver guests to offer their opinions and vent their frustrations simply to create some dialogue,” he said. “IF you are a driver or the head of a major carrier, I welcome your response.”
Also on this week’s show, James Menzies discusses the Freightliner Inspiration Truck. There are also the regular features such as news, events and the Dufus Driver story.
