The Experiment--Take Two.

Well. That experiment was quick.

I requested "Not Ready to Make Nice" again today.

I received this reply from the DJ:

    "I can play the Dixie Chicks just not that song ~ it must fit in our format Sorry"
How doesn’t it fit your format? You don’t play award-winning songs? How is it different than any other Dixie Chicks songs? Because it’s less "country"? Shouldn’t that make it more compatible with your format, since it’s more pop and light rock-ish? Your station is basically Vh-1 on the radio—and they play the "Not Ready to Make Nice" music video. I guess the difference is that they’re aren’t owned by bigot Clear Channel.

They are playing "Landslide" by the Dixie Chicks, right this minute, though, as a replacement. It will be the last song I hear on this station.

…right after my second request of "Train in Vain" by the Clash.
