No big news but kind of different. A new radio station is starting up in western Colorado. Their tactic for getting some attention is to play "Stairway To Heaven" back to back, 24/7. They have been going for about ten days now. At some point they will start in with their normal programming, whatever that will be.

Egad! Obviously they never watched Waynes's World, a rather funny movie where, in my favorite scene, Wayne walks into a Guitar Center or similar store, picks up a strat, starts to play S2H and immediately an alarm goes off, lights flash, and a salesman points to a sign that says "No Stairway to Heaven". Big fun.

There is one store where I've actually seen that sign for over 20 years at least, the Haight-Ashbury Music Center in San Francisco.

Funny thing. After I did the post about playing Stairway To Heaven, the next time I got in my car they were playing other songs. It seems they're going to be a classic rock station. I haven't heard Edgar Winter Group's "Frankenstein" in years. Pretty cool.
