from a certain Music Director at a certain station I know

new adventures in radio ...

A guy buys a new Lexus 330. He returns to the dealer the next day, angry because he can’t get the radio to work.

The salesman explains that the radio’s a new voice-activated model. “Watch and listen!” he says, and shouts “Nelson” to the radio.

A voice from speakers asks “Ricky or Willie?”

“Willie!” answers the salesman, and On The Road Again begins playing.

The car’s owner shouts “Ray Charles!”, and in an instant Georgia On My Mind replaces Willie Nelson.

The customer drives away happy. “The Beatles!” he shouts as he hits the highway, and Across the Universe comes on.

Seconds later an SUV cuts him off, nearly forcing him and his new Lexus off the road.

“Asshole!” he shouts after the speeding driver.

The radio begins playing Hail to the Chief.”
