Tom Lehrer is Smug

(no subject)

It appears that Radio 104 in Connecticut has, by the infallible grace and wisdom of Clear Channel Communications, had its format changed from rock to hip-hop. I'm sure the Hartford market was just dying for another hip-hop station, and it's really nice to see Clear Channel step to the plate and give the people just what they want. I'm sure those who were fans of the rock format will go back to illegal MP3s or humming tunes they like in their head or something.

(I'm also pretty sure the rock format of Radio 104 in its waning days was different than the format I remember, which was at the time the only alternative rock station you could get in Southern New England, so I really have no place to complain, but still. Nobody likes a format change, especially not one that drastic. But kids'll get over it cause there ain't much they can do about it anyway.)

Good morning.
