Esuohlim Ok thanks for your 9-month late input that's completely pointless if you read the very first sentence from the very first post.

That's all.
All the Ramones ever wanted were the airwaves. They never got them.

k0k0 My friend in highschool had a really awesome 91 something or other that looked like the first picture. We'd turn the windshield squirters sideways and then pull up to people with open windows and squirt soapy water at them. It was awesome until we got run off the road by a guy with a bat. Well, was still awesome after that too.

Colonel Flagg Gary Hoey's cover of Hocus Pocus is pretty good, too.
Jul 28th, 2011 01:33 AM

My classic rock station occasionally plays it! I think I've heard it at least twice while at work.

Aaarg I liked the college station at WVU for about a week before I noticed that every time I turned it on it was playing a Sonic Youth song.

Hangie Your problem with BOC is what happens to Aerosmith in my area. Also the same thing happens with rap stations that only play Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross. Despite having their 'We're going to talk now' song be an A Tribe Called Quest song, I've never heard them play them.

Generally the only radio stations worth listening to up here in Boston are college stations . Especially Emerson's station which has on a regular day showtunes from the early morning to noon, Acapella until around 6, whatever they feel like playing until 8, reggae and dancehall until 10, and then rap until 2.


Also theres some other station that plays weird DnB and experimental music from 11-4 in the morning. Not sure who runs it.

Zhukov "You're listening to 7HO FM 101.7, where we play nothing but the best music from the 80s, 90s and today! Non stop - all day, every day - giving YOU the best music for breakfast, work and getting you home! But best of all, no ads! 100% ad free, all day long, so you can chill out with your favourite tracks, without interruption! Only on Hobart's number 1 music station, 7HO FM101.7; your home of variety."

*play Jimmy Barnes song*

I used to do a university radio show with two friends, it was pretty fun until we got kicked off the air for playing pirated music. We would play mostly Radiohead and all the other bands that are like them, since that is what my friends liked, and I would force them to play the odd hip hop track. They'd talk about their bands and I would say the occasional funny anecdote about getting hit in the balls or missing the bus. I think we had about 7 listeners maximum for our one hour show.

I don't listen to the radio, but I downloaded Ricky Gervais podcasts like mad.

That's why I had Pandora Radio as an android app and hooked it up to my radio. Fuck the radio.
92.5 KQRS in Minneapolis (home to the highest rated morning show in the country...eat shit stern!) has a massive library and plays all sorts of classic rock. Lately though i've noticed that during the overnights they've been slippin' in some Nirvana and other early 90's alternative. It's getting to that point where some of these bands/songs are hittin' 20 years now...

Fathom Zero God only knows how much music they've turned me onto. Their posts of rips of old 45's is fantastic. But I first heard of them through People Like Us and Do-Or-DIY.

Aaarg i know of wmfu because of the blog.

i suppose it could have been an independent station out of asheville. that would make sense.
Jul 20th, 2011 06:21 AM
Shrubfest There's one called Arrow Rock here, and although it does play the classicist of classic rock, they only seem to have about a days worth of music which they just shuffle endlessly. It gets to the point where you can predict what they'll play next.

I tend to listen to radio 2. :shame

k0k0 I listen to News Radio 590 KLBJ and that's it. I am fine with talk radio, even if they aren't saying stuff I like, at least it's all new. I can't really stand much of the crap they play on the radio. I'm fine with older 'classic' but the new stuff that they deem classic is all newer shit. Maybe I'm getting old.

Pentegarn Because they also have House of Hair syndicated, so I tolerate the bad for that

Colonel Flagg Most "Classic rock" stations play neither "classic" nor "rock" music.
