Stupid Regulation

DCP_1049
My Human has XM satellite radio. Her favorite station is called Fred. It plays alternative rock from the 1970's & 1980's. She has a lot of the songs they play in her collection, but yet she listens to a station that plays those same songs.

For the next few days, Fred is playing 2044 of the so-called greatest (or whatever) songs of this genre. So my human is listening to a lot of Squeeze, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, O.M.D., etc etc etc...

The "announcer" on Fred states that there is some stupid regulation that will not allow a satelite radio station to post a list of their count down songs.

Why the poop is this a regulation? How many human dollars does this regulation cost to enforce? How many humans are in charge of monitoring this stupid regulation?

Humans are so stupid!

yep, it's a stupid regualtion alright. Our mom loves the same music. She listens to an FM station, 104.5, in Philly. They do okay in the retro stuff as well as the more modern stuff.

Stupid regulation! Even stupider is that this Fred station is not paying me royalties! I have already encountered this program with many many other Freds and have yet to see any money at all! Grr.
