Strange new Radio Station Concept - check it out

Check this out! The new radio station ONLY plays 10 seconds of one song, then goes to another one! Some guys says the song number, then the song starts!

Here's what its like. "1": then plays the song for 10 seconds, "2", plays another song for 10 seconds, "3", ect. THIS IS SOOOOOOO STUIPED!!!!! Here's their web site: At the bottom of the page, it says "What happened to 95.7 The Beat?"

Look at this!

"New Century Media Debuts "QUICK 96" in Seattle

(Seattle, Washington) … In a radical departure from mainstream radio formats, New Century Media has created a totally new approach to traditional broadcasting. Wednesday, May 29, 2002 at 6pm, 95-7 The Beat (KBTB-FM) changes its name and format to "QUICK 96" ...only the Best Parts of your Favorite Songs ". "QUICK 96" was designed to address the short attention span of today's busy music fan," said New Century Media President and General Manager, Michele Grosenick. "'QUICK 96' will feature an active library of more than 11,000 songs. 'QUICK 96' is truly the most variety of music ever heard on Seattle Radio. Each day you'll hear the Best Country, Top 40, Rock and Adult Hits and lots more of them," Grosenick continued.

"'QUICK 96' was born from a brainstorming meeting with Michele, our research company con******t and myself," stated Program Director, Bob Case. "We noticed that our con******t's attention span was about seven seconds and the idea of this new format just grew from that!"

An additional outcome of the research study showed that Seattle Radio Listeners wanted to know each song title and artist. "QUICK 96" has gone to the extent of numbering every song so the listener will simply need to logon to to look up the song number for each title and artist. "QUICK 96" will play an astonishing 426 songs each and every hour."'QUICK 96' will surely be a favorite to busy Seattleites that need lots of music in a flash," said Grosenick.

"QUICK 96" is owned and operated by New Century Media, The Ackerley Group's Radio Broadcasting segment, who also operates Sports Radio 950 KJR (KJR 950 AM), KUBE 93 (KUBE 93.3 FM) and Seattle/Tacoma's Sports Radio 850 (KHHO 850 AM). "QUICK 96" can be heard at 95.7 FM or over the world wide web at "

Sounds pretty dumb to me.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
