‘Great news, pop-music snobs!’

‘Eye Weekly’ box, mailbox, and bench under ORGANICS sign

Bons mots from my esteemed colleague M. Weisblott’s Eye Weekly cover story on Radio 2:

  • “[B]ased on the first week of Radio 2 Morning… the mix is one even more likely to discourage teenagers from loitering in a subway station”
  • “Much like the way Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony remained part of his Å“uvre even after someone turned it into a tacky disco song, Radio 2’s programming philosophy involves playing plenty of favourites as bait to help listeners learn about something new”
  • “[I]s it sheer narcissism that motivates people to feel that the power of the radio medium automatically improves whenever it’s playing their song?”
