If anyone knows what song that line comes from (no Googling) I may just send you a surprise.
I have never been much of a radio girl myself, but living where I live can make just about anyone love the radio. We have the most fantastic public radio station I have ever heard. I'm the sort who doesn't like 24 hours of extremely biased news reporting. If I hear too much liberal news, I am likely to rebel and go listen to Rush Limbaugh. If I hear too much conservative news, I rebel by turning on some NPR production. But I definitely prefer NPR's reporting to anyone else's, and my station gives me just enough to keep me interested without making me turn on WGOP (or whatever broadcasts Rush).
They also take plenty of breaks from NPR to give me fabulous shows like BBC Newshour, the Story, and my all-time favorite, Backporch Music. Most of these are available online. You definitely can't get better than Friday, Saturday, or Sunday nights with the BPM folks playing everything from the old-time mountain musicians to the newest in folk and bluegrass. Who wouldn't want to spend an evening with Ralph Stanley, John Prine, Lucinda Williams, and Kickin' Grass?
And if I get tired of public radio, which I rarely do unless Diane Rehm is interviewing yet another author of yet another book on the war, I can always turn to this station. My husband and I make fun of their motto, "If you're listening to great classical music, you're listening to WCPE." But they really do play great classical music all of the time, excluding their Thursday night opera music. (I can handle opera live, but over the radio is too much for me.) When we lived in Illinois, I used to listen to the station over the internet while I worked. Now Hobbes gets instantly quiet when I turn it on and complains if I switch back to public radio. If you like classical music, or have a fussy toddler, you should definitely check it out.
There you have it, a shameless plug for two of my favorite things in North Carolina. What about you? What do you listen to when you are in the car?
