Today I drove the kids to a playdate, then had the car radio to myself. I switched to 774. But on the way back to pick up the kids 774 was playing repeats of stuff I'd already heard during the week (I already know about panda sperm being delivered to the zoo, thanks!). I listened to a bit of News Radio then switched back to FM when sport came on. It defaulted to Fox but Fox was playing a song I hate, so I tried a few other stations, until I came to this:
Ah, nothing wrong with that. NOICE. Amirite?
Cue the kids getting back in the car, and then a short silence while we drove and I sang along to the chorus (making full use of the required high quavering Bee Gees voice: "In the words of a broken heart it's just eee-MO-shun that's takin me ovah, tied up in SO-row, LO-O-OST in mah so-o-oul...").
"Mum," said M. "Is this Fox?"
"Is it Nova?"
"Is it Mix?"
"What is it?"
"Um...." How could I put this? "It's Smooth FM!"
Both kids in chorus: "Nooooooooooooo!!!"
So we went back to Fox, and then to Nova.
And we all agreed on this, really loud:
LET'S GET RIDICULOUS!
What's on your car radio?
