Radio, Wall of Sound – 15th July 2012

We have no TV yet (however, having experienced a night of US TV in our hotel room, we’re not sure whether 250 channels of nothing are actually worth the money anyway) so we’ve been listening to the radio.  The USA has far more radio stations than the UK, with many being very specialised (I haven’t found the late 80s/early 90s/goth/indie/metal station yet but no doubt it exists).  We’ve already found some favourites though, and they are surprisingly similar to the UK stations.  93.7 BOB FM is where we are currently “keeping our knob” (yes that is their slogan) and it plays a mix of “proper” music old and new, i.e. the stuff played on actual instruments and not your dancey rubbish.  It’s very similar to Absolute Radio in the UK.  It even has the same no-repeat workday guarantee.  I expected to hear a lot of unfamiliar songs but it seems that 99% of US bands must have made it big in the UK as I know nearly all of the music BOB plays.  I’ve also been surprised by some of the UK music BOB plays.  While obviously Adele is on non-stop and Coldplay are regulars, I’ve also heard the likes of Jesus Jones and Human League.

Meanwhile over on Sirius, the satellite stations similar to our UK digital service, they have 80s and 90s stations just like Absolute Radio 80s and 90s.  Sadly we only get Sirius on our hire car which is being returned shortly, as I will miss both stations.

Of course, once my internet connection is up and running I will be faithfully listening to Radcliffe & Maconie on 6 Music again, this time as my breakfast show 🙂
