The Spirit of Radio: All We Hear is Radio Gaga

I have a love/hate relationship with radio station KUFX ("K-Fox"), here in San Jose.

I hate that they play the same songs, over and over, and if I sit listening to the radio all day as I work, I'll probably hear the same song every single day.

On the other claw, a good number of the songs they play over and over are ones that I LOVE and NEVER get tired of.

I think "(Don't Fear) the Reaper" may be my favorite song of all time. Whenever it plays, I perk up and feel happy—which is weird, when you listen to the lyrics and the rather ominous chord progressions.

If you asked me flat-out what my favorite song was, "Reaper" might not be the first thing to come to mind—but it always triggers the Rock Anthem reaction (put your hand over your heart and sing along).

Dammit. I miss KMAX. I miss that perfect mix of Classic Rock and Good New Music.


blah blah blah Pandora blah blah. Yeah, it's great, but I can't listen to it in the car.
