    a year ago 

    this week a new radio station appeared in LA that changed our lives

    im listening to 103.1 LA’s Indie which WILL NOT for any reason stop playing pearl jam.

    they, just this minute, segued from bob marleys “redemption song” to “spin the black circle”.


    why would you do that?

    in a million years tell me how pearl jam is Indie?

    they also seem quite infactuated with the pretenders.

    last night we were trying to get it on and they put on “middle of the road”. i was scared that limbaugh was about to come on and tell us this whole new alternative radio station was just a big fakeout.

    now its the police “born in the 50s”. now this i can live with. infact i love it. classic rock isnt gonna play that. kroq isnt either.

    a niche has been found on radio, america.

    its incredible!

    ive had this thing on since nine this morning.

    karisa called me from vegas asking what i was doing, i told her i was listening to the radio.

    she asked 103.1?

    i said yep.

    i was thinking what it could be like to be any better. they could tell you what song you just heard, thats for sure.

    but i dont want djs. pornstars maybe. politicians, celebrities, homeless, kids. but by all means no djs.

    right now its got no commercials which is mighty awesome. they have all the music in the world to choose from. they did a velvets song. i heard public enemy. i could use a smidge more hip hop. believe it or not, but not so much nirvana. maybe some live tracks.

    they played kiss me on the bus last night as we got home.

    nearly died.
