Like nails on a chalkboard


For something like the 12th time today, yours truly has been subjected to the most annoying bit of radio advertising to be heard on the airwaves of Central Florida.

Without naming the offending advertiser (who deserves no free promotion for obviously hiring out-of state talent to record said annoying radio spot), the proper pronunciation of Kissimmee is:

While we're at it, Melbourne is pronounced "mel-burn," NOT "mel-born." And, the e's on the end of Altamonte and Montverde are both silent.
If you want to gin-up community support for your business, try hiring local voice talent that won't mispronounce the names of places around here!
