Guest Dabeagle Posted February 8, 2014 Report Share Posted February 8, 2014 I hate long car rides and the radio. And Sirius is too expensive, so don't go there. But the thing I find most annoying is the commercials. Yes, I know they pay for the radio, but it seems like they play more commercials than they do music. For instance, I had a four hour drive in each directions Thursday and each time an ad came on, I switched the preset. I began to suspect collusion when every one of them was running an ad at the same time. So I started hitting the arrow and got what I got until the next ad - unless it was church radio. Another thing is when stations mute out a word from a chorus. I recall hearing this back in the nineties (I think) with Tom Petty's song 'You Don't Know(How it feels)'. The line in question was 'Let's roll another joint' and 'joint' would be muted. So on Thursday a station was playing Kid Rock's rip off of Warren Zevon's 'Werewolves of London' mashed up with Lynerd Skynerd's 'Sweet Home Alabama', I think it's called 'All Summer Long'. So they get to the chorus in a song about teenagers at summer play: And we were trying different things We were smoking funny things Making love out by the lake to our favorite songs Sippin' whiskey out the bottle Not thinking 'bout tomorrow Now. They muted 'smoking' but left in the whole lines about underage sex and drinking. Meat. Head. Dead from the neck up! Quote Link to comment
