The last hold-out in the Twin Cities commercial ‘alternative’ radio dial succumbed to Love today.
Two choices remain; The Current, or some mythical online service.
But, I stuck with the format change and had the hair to prove it. Then had the same reaction when they mellowed out four years later and switched to “college” or “alternative” or “modern” or “progressive” rock.
Again, I stuck with them. And still have a cassette recording of their live broadcast of Too Much Joy in concert.
I stopped there. Not following them into Country or beyond.
10 minutes from now, I expect the FM dial to resemble the current AM dial, with AM completely abandon. Like suburbanites migrating to newer construction further out. All while iPod capacities grow exponentially.
