Radio rocks!

Yeah i've really never listened to radio in my life because it never plays the music i'm in the mood for... But over the last five years internet news radio has become such a staple for me. WTOP kicks ass for political news, ditto Federal News Radio when WTOP is too busy to listen (e.g. during the war). Now with Frances we've got WFLA and WIOD... It blows me away that i can be on the other side of the planet and just point and click and get the local news as it's happening, on-demand. I wish i had speakers at work so i could listen in at the office. Maybe i should set that up for the election so i can listen to WTOP coverage. I'm such a nerd. Watching the local Fox affiliates reporting from the "front line" today i was wondering how the hell we were getting such clear sound and picture (well, relatively). Nifty tech we have. Continuing coverage on WFLA, i guess i'll leave it on as i go to sleep tonight. Because tomorrow i need to take the damn bus to work full of fucking annoying Australians so this is my little escape... Away to Florida for a hurricane vacation. Woo!
