You know, no matter how hard I try, I can’t hate Indie103.1.
I really want to, because I hate Clear Channel so much, but I think their playlist is the best thing to be on LA radio in a decade.
Here are four things I’d do to make it a better station, if I were King of the Universe:
- Get rid of that fucking stoner guy who does the station IDs. Whenever I hear his voice, I want to punch him in the larynx, and stomp on his guts. Besides, isn’t he too busy eating Carl’s Junior to be bothered?
- The live Internet feed is awesome. Mirror it on Shoutcast, so we XMMS weenies can enjoy it.
- Send strippers and scotch to Wil Wheaton once a week.
- Boost the broadcast signal, so people in Pasadena can listen without so much goddamn static.
Don’t get me wrong. $corporate.stuff still sucks more often than not, but every now and then, something corporate comes along (like those soymilk gingerbread lattes at Starbucks) and is not all that bad after all.
But seriously, Indie 103.1, take one of your spiffy stickers, wait until your Station ID guy takes a big bite of his Western Bacon Cheeseburger, and slap it across his stupid mouth. You’ll be doing us all a favor.
