I listened to FM radio today for the first time in just about forever. It still sucks.
Our Mini was in the shop, so we had a loaner Hyundai Sonata for the day from the dealership. And our XM reciever was still in the Mini, so I had to deal with FM radio for a little while as I did some running around in the afternoon. There is one station on the dial that I kinda like, but whenever they hit a commercial break I play with the dial.
I landed on a station that has played the same music since I was in junior high. I'm serious. THE SAME EXACT FUCKING MUSIC ON THE SAME EXACT FUCKING STATION. It's so bizarre. Right before I hit the station, I said to myself "Self, what's it going to be on WBAB? Bad Company? Boston? Journey? Maybe some Pink Floyd?"
And the absolutely obvious roulette wheel landed on Boston. "More Than a Feeling"...and it really couldn't have surprised me less.
Does anyone out there get jazzed when a song like "More Than a Feeling" pops up on the radio? Do ya really? I think you're lying, because the real answer is that no one gets jazzed about that.
Listen, I don't mind and I kinda love 70's music. We listen to the 70's channel all the time on XM. But they don't play the super-obvious hits like "More Than a Feeling." They usually play stuff that makes you go "Oh yeah...I remember this song...", or something to that effect. I just don't get stations like the one I happened upon yesterday, though. Makes no sense.
Do you still listen to FM radio? Is there anything decent out there on the freewaves?
