    I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again: WBBM is AM radio 780 in Chicago….
    I’d recommend a vigorous red wine with any humans, Zygorthians! They’re so pungent!

    I thought Oliver got an amateur radio operator’s license. what the heck is he doing using a commercial broadcaster’s call sign? Different classes of operators have differently configured call signs and WBBM is the format for commercial broadcast only and not “ham” radio.

    Notice the question mark. He is not announcing his call sign, he is asking if he is contaciting WBBM.

    I can’t remember… is this still part of the Opus/Penguin Lust arc, or did they skip to another arc?

    It looks to me like he’s saying, “This is WBBM 640…” That would be his call sign, and he’s asking if he has contacted Cincinnati. And yes, that would be an improper call sign. Quick! Back to the ’80s in order to lynch the cartoonist!!
