He is in the music business — he is calling you "dude"

April 25, 2004 @ 5:37am

Two of my mornings last week included hour-long commutes in a rental car. I listened to a few minutes of Howard Stern griping about having to give up his job and I bounced from station to station in search of actual music. Not much luck.

One thing that I did find a lot of was morning radio's one great contribution to popular culture: abbreviated curse words. One dj's obligatory stand-up comedian sidekick complained about the "ess-load of money" some "eff-ing ay-hole" had made.

Happily, I resume the usual "downstairs to the basement" commute tomorrow morning — to a basement that doesn't get good radio reception in the morning. (Okay, I've never bothered to check.) For a while I was using Windows Media Player to stream in an afternoon dance music show from London. If I heard their morning show, I knew it was time to head upstairs to bed.

We are building a religion.
We are making a brand.
We're the only ones to turn to when your castles turn to sand.
Take a bite of this apple, Mr. Corporate Events.
Take a walk in the jungle of cardboard shanties and tents.
Some people drink Pepsi, some people drink Coke.
The wacky morning dj says, "Democracy's a joke."
He says, "Now do you believe in the one big song?"
He's now accepting callers who would like to sing along.
He says, "Do you believe in the one true edge —
by fastening your safety belts and stepping towards the ledge?"
