Chicago radio

Sucks ass. Just stating the obvious really. All the good stations are gone. Energy, Super Estrella, VIVA. VIVA is the most recent victim. It was the last of 3 Spanish language pop stations, when its format switched to reggaetón...insert barf sound here. Who the hell wants to listen to a reggaetón station? Every song sounds exactly alike. I think what prompted this post was we were switching stations and Nuestro amor by RBD came on. When we looked at the dial it said 103.1! La Kalle (ghetto, I know to spell calle with a k), which was formally VIVA, was playing it. I figured it must have been their obligatory y más for the year, being that their tagline is Reggaetón y más. After that the annoying pocha DJ (I say annoying because she can never speak one language, be it English or Spanish, for more than a sentence) played George Lamond's Bad Of The Heart! WTF! Anyhoo...that is my rant for the day. I will post about my weekend tomorrow. Ciao bellos.

yeah, i too gave up on [la] radio, but apperantly the spanish stations are getting better. theyre starting to play a better mix, and are even touching what KISS (sucksass!) wont play. i heard hung up on there, as well as a couple other english songs. lets see how long tis lasts. .until, you know... clear channel takes over and screws us up.

Sista M, you should try 101.9 "The Mix". They tend to play a little too much stuff by Train or James Blunt, but they make up for it by playing the new Depeche Mode, Madonna, Alanis (they love her Crazy remake), INXS, etc. The station is very much like VH1, without Mariah Scarey!

hmm that is why i can't remember the last time i listened to chicago radio--well besides radio arte and npr. although george lamond would be a guilty pleasure for me. anything is better than reggeaton.

I was at a restaurant the other day and they had reggaetón playing really loudly. Who the hell wants to hear that shit while they eat?
