Newsflash: RADIO SUCKS!!

I have a girl at work that works for me that's always listening to top-40 radio here in NY (Z-100 and WPLJ for those that know). Now, I hate commercial radio and their 2 hour rotation of music that they play, but I have a question. I don't know if any one else has experienced this phenomenon, but why the fuck is Dobie Gray's "Drift Away" getting so much airtime? I hear it every two hours. It's not like it's a new song, I just don't get it.

So far, my "Drift Away" count for the day is at 2.....more updates as events warrant.

i couldn't listen to an artist who calls themselves 'dobie' and spells it wrong...

i give a wholeheartedly hands up to voting top 40 radio off the air.

they have pirate stations in the uk (or so i hear) and also good stations (also, from what i hear). what's up with the us' downward spiral with taste in music the past 20 years?

is that like a bung-dropper?


6/18/2003 >> ben

it's from the far side, but damned if i can find an image...


6/18/2003 >> ralph

hrm...don't remember that one

the caption went something like... "Suddenly, the burglars stopped in their tracks, for little joey had them in the sites of his dobie gun", and the picture is a kid holding what looks like a cross between a shotgun and a slingshot, loaded with an angry doberman, and he's got crosshairs on the top (because, you know, you have have precise aim when firing large dogs at people)
