Radio Days. 

There are no announcers any more, only unfunny, smarmy 'comedians' power-laughing to each other after yet another stupid gag.

There is no interesting music any more, only Nickelback and Jack Johnson.

There is no variety any more, every station has its own repetitive playlist.

Even when I turn in desperation to supposed 'golden oldies' stations, they play the songs I DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO HEAR IN 1976 LET ALONE TODAY.

Someone should destroy the master tapes of Billy Joel, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Queen and everyone from the eighties (that's not the name of a band, I MEAN everyone from the eighties) so that I don't have to listen to Bohemian Rhapsody, In the Air Tonight, Tonight's the Night, Rhiannon, Rocketman, Piano Man and several thousand other truly horrible songs every day for the rest of my life.

Then I turn to the classical stations and even they talk too much. No, I DON'T want to know the entire plot of the opera or the life story of the composer or the CV of the soprano or the conductor.

Just play the bloody record. And shut up.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so

O come on. Give 6music a chance... I had given up on radio until I found them!
Thanks thisgirl!

Oddly enough, J's Girlfriend, I started this post having listened to yet another mind-bending Thurday edition of Galactic Zoo on 3RRR which counterpointed the absolute waste of space which is mainstream radio.

But you have to like the Who, MC5, early Zombies, 60s music created by classically-trained musicians (which the best of the sixties was) ... and ... and ...

So check out Galactic Zoo and I'll check out 6music.
