Radio Hits: Barry Taylor, Girl Talk and RHCP on The Edge


You lucky bastards are getting three for one here.  That's right, three radio hits in one entry.

See what I did there?  I called them "hits" because "hits" are played on the radio.  I could have called them "thoughts" or "points", but that wouldn't have been nearly as clever.  Let's get to these hits, shall we?

1. Barry Taylor Returns to GTA Radio
I heard former CFNY / Edge 102 deejay Barry Taylor on Y108 this afternoon.  He's got a weekend afternoon gig there, working Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6pm.  Barry Taylor is a hero of sorts, because he called Edge 102 out on the mat and taught me that I really don't know shit about radio.  It's good to hear his voice on the radio again.

2. Girl Talk Has Changed the Way I Hear Songs
Earlier this morning, while in the shower, I heard Nirvana's Lithium on Edge 102.  Listening to Lithium, only one of my favourite songs of all-time, I heard Salt-N-Pepa's Push It in my head.  Apparently I've listened to a lot of Girl Talk the past few years and I can't hear a song he sampled without hearing the rest of his mash-up.  Same thing happened when I saw Heart this past summer.

3. Edge 102 Should Re-brand Themselves RHCP Radio
Almost every time I tune in 102.1 they're playing a Red Hot Chili Peppers song.  It happened again this afternoon when I heard Give It Away.  Seriously, they play a lot of RHCP and I'm betting RHCP gets more coverage than any other band right now.

That is all.  Continue enjoying your weekend.
