I listen almost ex­clu­sive­ly to talk radio and music to which I've danced. Of course there is the occasional southern rock band, or novelty record. Okay, lots of novelty records...but I digress.

WSKY, 97.3 FM, is a local News/Talk station in Gainesville, FL. Some of the local jocks had been using tunes by The Right Brothers as bumper music. Well one of them managed to get the the whole band (both of them) as guests on an afternoon show. They're hilarious! In particular, I like their song, "What About the Issues?" (free download)

I am also amused that it's 2006 and a point of focus for my elected U.S. rep­re­sen­ta­tive is the 2000 Pres­i­den­tial Election. Shouldn't continue.
