A CFNY For Grownups
On what some are calling the Humble Appreciation Society, a comment was left this morning by a chap named Doug. He wrote something that struck a nerve with me. He openly yearned for "a CFNY for grownups". Yes! That's exactly what I'm looking for, or listening for, if you will.
I've written about CFNY dozens of times because it's been my go-to station for almost two thirds of my life. A couple of years ago I wondered if CFNY might be going "Classic Alternative", which would have been a dramatic step in the right direction. Instead, it seems they care less and less about their listeners under the age of 30, targeting the teens with crappy music and moronic hosts. What I'd like to hear is a CFNY that plays the great music (Radiohead, System of a Down, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Weezer, The Hip, Pearl Jam, Arcade Fire, Metric, etc.) we've come to expect but doesn't play down to the audience as if we're all a bunch of slacker college kids. We want a CFNY for adults and I know just the two who could host the morning show.
Speaking of Humble Howard, we've been chatting and he's given me his personal email address if any fans want to get in touch with him. He left a very cool comment yesterday on the "Humble Howard, Are You Okay?" page, which is now at 157 comments and counting. When he calls me next week, I'm going to suggest a CFNY for the 30+ crowd. I'm in love with the idea.
