"Let's talk radio! What's happening in your city? Who's got the hot new formats and how do you get YOUR classical music? Program directors will read this and your voice will be heard. Get Radio-Active here."
O.k. "City" is a far stretch of the imagination for where I'm living.
This is three hours from anywhere that has something vaguely resembling an airport large enough to handle more than piston poppers.
Stray Dog & I moved here from Fall River, Massachusetts. We moved to Fall River from Kansas City. I went down to get insurance for the cars, and the nice lady asked me how I liked moving to the "big city".
I looked at her and said "What big city?"
She huffed "Well Fall River has over 500,000 people!"
I said "That makes it a tie the fourth smallest
town I've lived in, the other being Lincoln, Nebraska."
Well... now it's tied for the fifth smallest town I've lived in...
Currently living in a town of 2600 people, which takes up it's rank as second smallest town I've lived in.
The smallest town I lived in, I also grew up near there, on a farm. Population 145 from one direction and 179 from another direction... depends on which direction down Hwy 136 you're traveling. I think they were counting the dogs from one direction, and the cats from another.
"Hot New Formats"? Uhm... won't know about them thar things for another 10 years or so.
That is unless I get a real
Rural areas are notorious for lousy pay. I suppose that old saw about the cost of living being lower out here still persists, right along with quiet living.
I've lived in three ghetos, and I've never known so many druggies and criminals as I have here... unfortunately, they seem to think I'm a sympathetic ear, and they talk to me. They actually think they're being picked on!
I have to wonder if they really hear what they're telling me... :confused:
"How do you get your classical music?" If the wind's just right, and I'm not behind the wrong hill, I can get an NPR station in my car. Unfortunately they're not playing music when I'm driving, generally. I eat lunch in my car and they have classical music then - but I tend to tune in to another station when they're having opera music... I'm not much on vocals, and have enough of hearing human voices at work. Otherwise, I listen to Beethoven.com at work. I use the excuse that I'm sharing my office with people who have business that I really shouldn't be hearing... privacy and all that... mostly I don't want to hear other people's soap operas in progress... thank goodness I have a "boring" life!!! GAHHHHH!!!!
(Gee, do I sound a bit of a crab or something?)
