I am the whitest of geeky, uncool white guys, but for some reason I enjoy Nelly's stuff.  I'll still turn up Country Grammar and roll with the windows down if I hear it.  

Also, I thought the duet he did with Tim McGraw, of all people, was pretty cool.

If you were forced to listen to either Nelly or Justin Beiber for 17 hours, what would you choose?

I remember back in high school a local station underwent a programming change. During that time they played the Macarena and two Macarena remixes for 72 hours straight.

"All Mac, No Rock" was their tagline during this time."

It pains me knowing some well-paid dipsh*t radio consultant came up with this "creativity".

Huge amount of publicity for the station. Can't say the money was wasted.

Yeah, it just seems so, I don't know, 1992? Can a year be an adjective?

The did the same with Fresh Prince when a station was switching over
 
2014-03-15 07:50:50 PM
Yeah, it's a transmitter stress test, basically.

And it's not just Nelly songs, it's just It's Hot In Herre.

So glad I'm not in the SF Bay right now.

Up 'till now I thought Nelly was a woman.

I'm an old guy, not up to speed with all the hippin' and a hoppin'.

Sounds like a station is getting ready for a programming change.

//One of the stations I used to listen to played Macarena for 24 hours before it went country.  It freaked me out expecting to hear alternative...then Macarena backtobacktoback...

I remember another station doing 24 hours of Prince's "Kiss" on a loop.

A number of years ago a radio station in Phoenix played Paris Hilton songs for 24 hours before changing formats from talk radio aimed at 20-somethings to top 40.

The FCC lets you broadcast audio of white trash moaning for 24 hours? Who knew.

Back on NYE in 99' 103.9 in Phoenix played like 13+ hours of a loop of the Venga Boys "The VengaBus".

An up and coming alternative station in Los Angeles did this when it switched over to spanish, instead of Nelly, we got "Feliz Navidad". Sad way for a good station to go. :( I miss you Y107.

This is my stupid troll alt I use for being a music asshole and when I want to post personal stuff.

I was actually in the studio when we pushed play on Feliz Navidad. I was a DJ at Y-107 from 1998-2000. It was a wild time man. I loved every minute of it. Ultimately we couldn't compete with KROQ and the other corporate whores in Los Angeles.

Coincidentally, we are experiencing 80° temps in the Bay today.

//if not record highs, pretty damn close

Would you believe there's an entire website that catalogs radio format changes and the audio of the switchovers?

The piano scene in Austenland is relevant but obscure, because none of you Farkers would ever see a movie about Jane Austen, even if it had Keri Russell in it, who is totally awesome in everything. Loved her in The Americans, Waitress ...

I prefer "rappist."

/Jerry's fault.
 
2014-03-15 11:13:24 PM
I always prefer radio stations to shift formats during the commercial break. Before the break they were country. When they came back they're classic rock. It's even better if they keep the same DJs.
 
2014-03-15 11:24:48 PM
Suicide rates will be thru the roof when it's over.

What's better than listening to Nelly? Hmmmm stabbing my eardrums out with a pencil? no. Not listening to radio and only ipod? yes.

When the Lightning won the Stanley Cup, one of the Tampa stations played "We Are The Champions" on a loop for hours.

Nelly actually isn't that bad, but I'm not sure I'd want to listen to him for 17 straight hours.  "Country Grammar" was a tight album though.

Yeah...keep it classy and weird. Like someone will be driving along, not really understand what's happened, and pull over the compare clocks and see if he lost any time during dimensional transference.

Yeah, if you aren't forced to endure it at work, commercial radio is really easy to avoid. Especially if you ride a motorcycle. I'm sure not everything they play is crap, but I'd rather sit thru a 7 hour drive in silence rather than hear 5 million stupid farking ads.

About 20 years ago, a San Francisco station played a repeating loop of the first verse and chorus of Too Legit To Quit, by MC Hammer, for who knows how long. I've forgotten whether it was KMEL or KSOL, since I was listening to both at the time - the latter did undergo a format change at the time, but the former was notorious for certain pranks by its DJs.

You mean there was once such a thing as talk radio aimed at 20-somethings?

/No, Air America doesn't count
