Hip Hop Blues

The three clearest radio stations in my little valley are NPR and two hip-hop stations. While I could blame it on the al-al-al-al-al-alcohol, it's more my ears and wiring that are weird. I have such paranoic tendencies when I drive that I have to change the channel whenever a song contains noises that are too similar to:
  • emergency vehicles
  • radar detector
  • phone ringtones
  • car part failures
Turns out hip hop these days contains a lot of those. The extra bonus is when both stations are playing the same song at the same time,NPR is irritating, and I'm in a KROQ dead zone.

Speaking of NPR, which doesn't always annoy me, I'm donating to the cause for a "Wait, Wait! Don't tell me!" ticket next week.
