Somebody wrote a song for vl!





Relevant lyrics:
They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's hella tight."
[/size]
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant ***** (****)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (****)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Trying to get girls from a brand? Then you hella won't




(has some f bombs and such)



Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

The local alternative NPR station has a catalog of some great in-studio performances. Keeping with the white rapper theme, this is something upbeat from Brother Ali -

So once upon a time there were two classical radio stations.  Only in the farthest South Suburb or lower could you tune in both.  The first, stable but frugal NPR station, was much bigger and had a great big antenna.  The second, owned/run by a liberal arts college with world recognition for its choral program, was much smaller and more of a treasure.


Forgoing vivid description of what changed and how, the first reinvented itself and came away having stripped the second of ownership.  The second station was now rebranded "The Current."  A slickly marketed alt station that escaped rock radio playlist redundancy till exactly 1 hour after the two month, unified across all of its stations, fund drive was complete.


Now we have exactly .8 of one classical station, news station, and alt station.  The intervening years saw MPR grow inordinately rich and painfully poor depending on if you read their financials or listened to their stations.  New companies were spawned using the public radio angle to secure recordings and deals unavailable to mass market outlets.  Things started sounding better on the odd day insulting pleas for more of your money didn't feel like they took up less than .2 of your listening time.


Recently it became part of the largest NPR group, including American Public Media and all other resources, in the states after a successful sale to WGN.  But that is fine.  The internet has long been the better place for commercial free radio.  But not for local Christmas Eve concerts or basically what amounted to the whole of the second station's, from the beginning of our story, entire programming. 


The Current can go shove an eclectic mix of items up its alternative holes.

How do you really feel?

Hate to tell you, but small radio stations are in a decline everywhere, even big markets, and MN has pretty slim pickin's otherwise (I'll actually be selling my loved Magnum Dynalab tuner because it's not going to see much use here).

 :thumbsup:   early - mid 80's and I was all about Joan Jett, one of my favorite songs ^^^ tho I know it's a remake. I used to crank up the console and rock out to her albums, drive my parents nuts, I was about 8.  You just made my day.
My daughter is in a Glee group, I keep trying to get her to sing I love Rock n Roll at one of her shows.
