They don’t even have a decent radio station here in Mobile, for sobbing out loud. Oh Lightning 100, how I took you for granted. I miss your quirky blues and old school rock, your folk and faux country. All those times I tuned you out in favor of a CD, I regret every one. If only I could hear the British lady’s voice come across the speaker, speaking in her soothing tone, “WRLT, Franklin, Nashville. Lightning 100.” I would even take some famous person saying, “David Hall rocks y’all!”
Now I’m stuck in generic land, where every DJ sounds like they drank five Red Bulls before coming on shift, and every song is screeching weasels running their nails down a really dry chalkboard. The sports talk station doesn’t even carry Jim Rome, and there’s no Dave Ramsey. At this point, I would even take the Vandy station. Please, someone, just get me out of music hell!
