Comments

Given that in years past you have censored lyrics by Harvey Danger, Blink-182 & Gorillaz, why do you not now censor the lyric included in some rappy-sounding number "All I need to know is if you wet enough"? If I had human children I wouldn't want to try to explain that line to them. Let's be consistent here.
Is it possible for the student DJ you have in the booth from 9 to 11 to simply read the announcements in a normal voice & not sound as though she's having a nervous breakdown every time she talks? The wild shifts in tone get old.
Your student announcers are spelling "C - y - r" out again rather than pronouncing it as a name, "Cyr". Doesn't one have to pass a test to be admitted to that school?
The student announcer in the booth right now just read the name of Foster the People as "the Foster People" twice. TWICE. Can these students be given some exams please.
AND your announcer in the booth just now said a song was by "Airborne Toxic". Not by Airborne Toxic Event.
Your announcer in the booth right now just pronounced "champagne" as "campaign". Don't you have an entrance exam at that school?
Thought this song would put you in the spirit for Halloween. Appreciate a listen, do share, and consider for some airplay. Thanks.
Now it's Chuck LaPrice who can't pronounce a simple word such as "posthumous". And he's a university instructor, apparently. That's pathetic. He could have avoided that by staying in bed; after all, earlier in the hour he complained of "needing a break" from his rigorous routine as an effete academic. Someone give him a clue. I'm a tenth-grade dropout who catches boneheaded mistakes made by university instructors. What does that make me?
Your announcers are STILL mispronouncing "posthumous". It's the title of a current song release & they're saying "post-humus". Would you please tell them how to say the word?
Congratulations! One of your announcers finally pronounced the title of the latest Smashing Pumpkins release correctly. "Cyr", like "sear", not "C - Y - R".
Playing some good tunes this morning classics!
