On my way to and from a meeting tonight, I heard a few things on the radio that require comments.
1) You cannot use the word “mall” in a rock song. It totally threw me off to hear the singer talk about seeing a girl he used to love “at the mall.”
2) Since when did country music start crossing over so much? I mean, just because you put a funky beat to it or add some electric guitar riffs, does not mean it is fit for a non-country station. I’m afraid you just can’t take the “country” out of country music. There’s a reason I have no country music stations preset on my radio.
3) Okay, this one is for my local friends. Dawson McAllister on 106.1? Seriously? For those of you non-locals, 106.1 is the radio station that plays Top 40, hip-hop/pop music like Fergie, Timbaland and maybe a little Daughtry. The weekday evening program usually features such deep call-in topics like “Are you hot?” and “Kiss and tell.” I suppose it’s a good thing…but very odd.
