From our far-flung correspondents
Longtime readers will recall my NQC pal (originally acronymed MNP … yeah yeah … so I’m not that creative). She wasn’t able to join me in Louisville last year (quelle tragique!) but we’re back on for this year and have been making plans via email. From our latest back and forth comes this data point about sg radio:
[MNP’s husband] bought a new truck (affectionately referred to as the beast) a few weeks ago and it has a lot of bells and whistles including satellite radio. I’ve been driving it as he’s out of town with my car and I’ve been listening to Enlighten. I was all excited to drive the beast until I actually listened to the station – where’s the good SG? There’s got to be another station that has something better.
You’d think. At least this has been my experience the last few times I’ve been on a plane with sat-rad: lots of excitement, lots of disappointment, click it off. When I was in Nashville last summer on research for 10 days, I had a rental with sat-rad and I kept a list of all the downmarket artists on that station that I, a reasonably well informed sg fan, had never heard of. I filled one side of a generous hotel note pad and was on to the next side but accidentally tossed the list while cleaning out the car before taking back to the airport. It was no loss.Email this Post
