I'm in Georgia visiting my parents for Passover. In the middle of my town, where the new parking decks and luxury condo's with "Vegas-style" pools are, you can only transmit wisps of V103 The People's Station, arguably Atlanta's best outlet for hip hop/R&B. They're playing "Racks on Racks" like at least once an hour now, but if you want to hear it you have to drive into metro-Atlanta, or alternately, far away from it. Yesterday I drove 40 miles thick in the woods and onto a gravel road to see my friend's new farm and baby. Out there the signal came in crystal, sometimes places are not what they seem. Who makes the better car-stopping "screeot" sound you think, YC or Soulja Boy? Hope my friend's baby is going to learn to make so many kinds of sounds by listening to the radio.
