Recently, Chris Malone changed his schedule from 3pm- 7pm  to 5am-10 am and now can be heard with Storm Roberts and Janie Pope weekday mornings.  Some still say he's still quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day!

What Kind Of Wrapper Are You?

In a survey commissioned by Scotch Tape, adults "rapped" about their own personal gift-wrapping behaviors and trends, and revealed who they think is the more gifted wrapper -- men or women. Below are some of the findings from the survey:
  • One in four people wrap their holiday gifts one or two days before giving the gift (27%). Another 22% wrap three to six days before the gift giving occasion.

  • When it comes to wrapping this year's holiday presents, nearly three in four adults (71%) are most likely to purchase gift wrap supplies and wrap the presents themselves, while one in five (19%) will put items in a gift bag instead of wrapping them. Just 3% said they will have gifts professionally wrapped at a store.
  • Nearly a quarter of adults surveyed (24%) list not having the right supplies on hand as the most common gift-wrapping mistake, second only to not knowing how best to wrap the gift (32%). 20% cite wrapping with too little paper as the culprit, while another 20% say using too much paper is the big mistake.

  • Just over half of the adults surveyed (53%) have saved and re-used gift wrap paper, with women (61%) more likely than men (44%) to recycle used gift wrap.

Battle of the Sexes: Men vs. Women
  • Nearly three in four adults (71%) believe that women are better gift wrappers than men, based on the overall appearance of the gift.

  • Nearly three in four adults (74%) say that the female head of household is most likely to wrap the majority of holiday gifts in their home, while just 19% say the male head of household wraps the majority of the gifts.

  • When asked what they would be most likely to give their spouse or significant other in return for wrapping all the holiday gifts, men say that they would buy them an extra gift (33%), watch the latest chick flick or action movie (18%) or take out the trash for a week (nine%). Half of women (49%) claim "it wouldn't matter because they would never agree to it."
  • While the average number of presents wrapped by adults in a typical December holiday season is about 15 (15.3), women wrap an average of 10 more gifts than men (20.3 women, 9.9 men).
