Old and out of the loop - Drinking from the Fire Hose — LiveJournal
and trying not to drown

On my drive in to work this morning, I heard a version of Turn the Page on the radio that I'd never heard before. I arrived at the office before the song ended, but liked it so well that I stayed in the car. And then I was lucky enough to have the DJ back announce the name of the band: Metallica.

Once my computer booted, I popped over to google and ran a search to learn the name of the album. Wouldn't you know, it's also Turn the Page? But how is that the release date of the album is way back in 1998 and yet this is the first time I've heard it? jebra may prefer to listen to classical (especially now that he's discovered 90.9, WRCJ-FM), but if I'm in control of the dial, you can bet the radio's tuned to a rock station of one sort or another.

That's been out a while. It's OK, there's music that people think I should know, stuff that's winning Grammies, and I'm oblivious. And considering I'm listening to the Beatles right now, that's not too difficult, if you get my drift.

Actually the name of the album is Garage Inc. (still 1998). If I remember correctly, pretty much all the songs on it are remakes from other bands. I am actually somewhat of a fan of Metallica, altho I don't have that particular CD.

&, oh, yeah, WRIF is probably where you'll most likely hear that version.

Minor nit -- Jebra loves his rock and roll, but can't stand the inane disk jockeys for very long. At least the classical station keeps the comments short and the music long. I can tolerate "Doug FM" (93.1, but I can't recall their call letters); the commercials are as annoying as any other station airs, but the comments between the tunes are kept to a minimum.

Sadly, there is no station that plays all of the music I like.

I really miss the old WDET, though.
