Now I rarely turn my radio dial (yes I have a radio) from our beloved WSPN 91.1 FM…. Our homegrown DJs put together a fantastic bunch of programming, and I still get giddy when I recognize my friends through their ultra-clever DJ names. In fact, this past weekend, I had an amazing evening with three fingers of scotch, unshelled peanuts and gorgeous fiddle music – thanks, Leland!
But when that WSPN DJ spins one too many Drake songs in a row and you need a change of pace, you gotta try Crush 105.7 FM, the greatest radio station since your favorite top 40 station from 1994 stopped playing 3LW, Will Smith and Smash Mouth. Honestly, the last time I heard Vertical Horizon on the radio, my friend’s mom was driving us home from seeing ‘Shrek’ at the theater. But that’s not all: these pop gems are interspersed with obscure but killin R&B hits that can make you feel sexy in sweatpants.
I will say this, and it counts as a warning: nostalgia is one of those things that you can overdo, so indulge sparingly.
