Sweet dreams are made of these - who am I to disagree?

This is me:

********* <-- These are the latest trends.

Note that I am on top of the latest trends.

Example: I just discovered Jack-FM and am smitten like a school boy. If I had a pencil box, I would throw it at my radio and call it ugly, the same way I treated the objects of my elementary school desires. There's no rigid format; just song after song that reawakens the spirit so pilloried by Top 40 or "The Best Hits of the 80's, 90's, and Today!"

They even post their playlist online. Just look at this lineup from earlier tonight:

2008 Update: JACK has been banished to the HD Radio dial. For shame!

I too have recently discovered the crazy musical stylings of Jack FM. I find their station identification crap annoying but one can't deny they play random and sometimes good songs that were heretofore unavailable on the airwaves without satelites being involved.

And to think all of those old people were in an uproar when they found that CBS 101.1FM had changed their format from Golden Oldies to Bon Jovi and Naughty by Nature. Those old people don't know what they've been missing all these years.
