Radio Repeat Radio

We have these really old-school phones at work... Toshiba something or another. You can turn the radio on and listen to it while you're not using the phone. Comes out of the speakerphone area. Pretty cool.

It's programmed to Bob FM. Not a bad station. Pretty wide variety... Chumbawumba's "Tubthumping" to Toni Basil's "Oh, Mickey" to Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" to The Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" I like the variety... it mixes the day up a bit. And on days like, say, yesterday, when I'm annoyed to high hell and back, something like Bohemian Rhapsody comes on, and I just can't be in a bad mood!

Lately though, I'm noticing that... though the variety is good... the station seems to be on some kind of loop. I'll hear a song that I KNOW I just heard a few days ago.

Not that that's a bad thing - just makes me curious: how are song lists for radio stations picked, besides the occasional call-in request? Do people really want to hear the same song, over and over again? Am I over-analyzing this?

I'm picking up Chinese food on the way home for dinner. YEEEEEHAAAAW!!!!

Then we'll play with the kids... bath time... and cutting coupons while waiting for MTV's "The Challenge" to come on (and wanting to shoot myself for staying up to watch it when I'm trying to drag my ass out of bed in the morning to get on the eliptical). I know, you're jealous. What can I say? I live life on the edge.
