BuckStar

You've heard of OnStar? Well, apparently a lot of the cars driven by members of the Ohio State football team are coming equipped with their version of the service called BuckStar. Click here to find out more.

Truly an amazing option.



Believe it or not, we're pretty sure the little skit above was from a Columbus radio station...and a DJ who is no longer on the air. Shocking.

"Hello, Buckstar? This is an emergency. I'm in my car surrounded by cops and I don't know what to do.... I have a lint roller, hatchet, and a bottle of Grey Goose... what should I do?"

"Can I have our account number please sir?"

"13, but I haven't called in a while."

"I'm sorry sir, your account has expired. Have a nice day and good luck."

"Hello, Buckstar? This is an emergency. There's a car on fire!"

"Ok, sir. Should I send a fire truck or some old couches?"

"Excuse me?"

"What I mean, does the car have Ohio plates, or Michigan plates?"

believe the personality was 'Sterling' along with his producer side-kick 'Ben'. Sterling's long gone, but 'Ben' still works on 610wtvn.

by the way, this is really 'old news'.

Screwa2,
No, it was not Sterling. And Ben was not his producer. Sterling had a female producer. It was Curt Boster and his producer "Young Daniel", which are both no longer at 610 WTVN. Curt Boster actually talked about before how when he was attending OSU, he would take Art Schlichter's tests for him. He said he would go to a bike rack in front of one of the buildings where there was money in a brown paper bag and he would take his exams for a certain course, which I can't remember which course it was.

Schlichter wasn't a serious student ?

Pretty amusing clip & yes that radio station is from Ohio

This station IS in Columbus and is the station that Craig Krenzel, Earle (I voted for Florida) Bruce, and other former buckeye players and coaches work for now. Also, it's slogan is "Home of the Best Buckeye Coverage" and also home of Hineygate... any Wolverine fan who has gone to The Shoe has walked by carefully past Hineygate... it's like where the majority of the drunk OSU fans hang out before the games!
