I would really like a dollar for how many times I have heard these tracks over the years, courtesy ABC Local Radio. Please, please ABC, delete them from your playlists. The world is full of wondrous music. Why not play some? Techno, lounge, classical, operetta, drums, some variety please (not country and western though).
Otis Redding - Dock of the Bay
Paul Simon - Anything, but especially Graceland.
The last plane out of Sydney might have almost gone, but gee I wish that song would too.
I can even listen to a bit of sport on our ABC Local Radio, but when it starts doing music, I just switch off. There are serious music stations around, for every taste. Why do ABC talk stations focus so much on music? Boring, boring, boring.
Bands and music? Raphael Epstein has promised many in the coming year, as has Richard Stubbs. Well that is when I switch off and listen to podcasts. I like my talk radio to be talk, not music.
