This morning, whilst in the middle of the mind-numbingly dull task of painting every room in an empty flat with only my DAB tranny for company (woof!), I suddenly tired of my usual diet of Radio 5 Live (the BBC’s attempt to appeal to the Daily Mail demographic by means of phone-ins which feature mostly shouty builders called Dave who start sentences with “I’m not racist, but…” and self-righteous stay-at-home mums from Tunbridge Wells), so I turned the dial to see what I could find, eventually alighting on Planet Rock. “Dr Feelgood” by Motley Crue, “Spirit of Radio” by Rush and “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young were the first three tracks served up for my delectation; I was impressed. Then came the adverts; first up, a plug for the latest issue of music mag “Mojo”, featuring a Neil Young interview and an exclusive CD with a re-interpreted recording of his classic album “Harvest”. Fan-bloody-tastic, I thought; even the adverts are good! I belong to a demographic after all! FINALLY, there’s a radio station for MY kind of guy!
And then the next advert came on: “Over 50? Overweight? Struggling to control your cholestorol levels? Then try Flora ProActive.”
Yeah, cheers for that.
