I was in the car earlier and heard the song “Come and Get It” by Selena Gomez. This is not news; it’s gotten a lot of radio play, despite being fairly terrible.
Upon hearing it, I changed the station because, like I said, it’s not good. Now, I have six buttons for presets on my car radio, and there are three sets of six preset slots available: 12 FM stations and six on the AM dial. I use eight of the FM slots, and these are pretty much the only stations I listen to.
So, eight stations. I hear a song I don’t want to listen to, I pick another. I did that this time, except the next station I went to was playing the same exact song. Like, seriously? You have how many bazillion songs at your disposal, and you play the exact same song – at the exact same time – as someone else?
So that happened. Which, I mean…that kind of thing happens, I know. But I was out on the road for about an hour running a couple errands, and on the way home, it happened again. With the same artist!
What I want to know is how are four different radio stations playing Selena Gomez songs?
Of all the things wrong with our country, this has to rank in the top 20, right?
