This isn't about radio per se, so I thought it would fit better over here.
Picture if you will, a car with Doofus1 (male) driving and Doofus2 (female) as passenger. Doofus1 stops right in the middle of the street to let Doofus2 out to go grab something from inside. Now this is bad enough, but Doofus2 actually makes things worse by getting out and leaving the car door open as far as it will go, making doubly sure that nobody will be able to get past the car. Doofus2 then takes 5 minutes to return, and Doofus1 just sits there blocking traffic. Dumb right? Definitely a candidate for the Darwin Award. As luck would have it, there was no traffic on the street at the time, but there's no way you could know that in advance.
So on to my point. As I'm walking by the car, I heard a certain radio station blaring. (No, I will not name the station.) I think "that fits perfectly." It's true that stereotyping someone based on the type of music they listen to doesn't always work (I can think of several examples), but stereotypes exist for a reason. Does anyone else see this happening a lot?
That's OK. I remember following a van with a light bar on the top (like police have) except they were purple lights. It was on the spaghetti bowl as we approached I-15 South the driver jerked the car quickly across three lanes onto the SR-201 ramp and I saw "U92" on the side, and I laughed!
I flipped over to U92 and listened to some Chingy as I watched the van's chaotic driving, and it actually fit to the music! ;D I LOL-ed!
That's could be its own topic. How well do station personnel represent their company when they're out in public. Reminds me of the news van that came whizzing up the shoulder on I-15, passing a half mile backup of stopped cars to get the all important B-roll of an accident for the newscast in 4 hours. *rolls eyes*
