Radio DJs are the worst

With the increasing popularity of satellite radio, podcasts, and easy-to-access digital music, it’s becoming more and more apparent that FM radio is a dying medium. I’m ashamed to say that I still listen to the radio on occasion in my car, and usually the radio is on in the background in my office all day…

Think I work at CVS? I don’t.

The Jennifer Lopez classic Love Don’t Cost a Thing was on Mix 93.1 earlier today while I was working, and it reminded me of when the song first came out. I’ve always thought she says, “think I work at CVS, I don’t” at one point. I know those aren’t the actual lyrics, though.   In…

I can smell your pee

Another song that Matt and I heard numerous times on the radio when we shared an office was Breathe by Faith Hill. I still hear it more often than anyone ever should, actually, thanks to mix 93.1. It truly is one of the queerest songs in existence, and the lyrics are awful, which is why…

Alicia Keys loves a ewe

Hootie & The Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranches

I usually hear at least one Hootie & The Blowfish song a day while listening to mix 93.1 at work. And when I do, I’m reminded of the Burger King commercial that Darius Rucker was in a few years ago. You may have noticed that commercials are a favorite topic here at Songspeak. Well, Matt…
