The radio sucks us in

The only radio station in the area that I can stand listening to is XPN, radio of the University of Pennsylvania. They play local music and more indie rock which I'm a fan. Only problem is that during the prime hours of 7pm to 9pm Monday through Thursday they have a program called Kids Corner. I'm sure this is wonderful for children and parents alike, but I am neither of those. Jonathan and I are sucked in at least once a week to the Kids Corner. Sometimes in the car, or when J is out in the garage or at a restaurant or hair salon. We can't get away from it.

Now I'm sharing this story because of what happens after listening to a session of the Kids Corner. We end up singing the songs for weeks. Then because we can't get them out of our heads Jonathan and I will share them with each other. Jonathan's current favorite Kids Corner jam is "Hello, my chicken thinks he's a dog" by Trout Fishing in America. Sorry, I could find a video for that one. Maybe you will thank me. You can stream their music on their website!!!

My current Kids Corner jam is "More Cowbell" by Joanie Leeds. You can check it out below, but I warn you that cowbell will be ringing in your ears for weeks.
