Love Jr. Conrad stop the ads

Jr is the best and tells it like it is with truth and integrity. I respect Conrad for his vast knowledge of the business but the ads and constant plugs for his mortgage business is so pushy and too much other than that. 5 stars for the best announcer of ALL time and the voice of my childhood. Mr Jim Ross. Heavy on the mister
