I was mentioning this in a post recently. I figured it could use its own post, though.
Radio 104.5 is a favourite station of mine here in Philly. I like that it is a one of a kind almost. What I hate is it seems to have the smallest playlist I have heard from a station. We make jokes how the Top 40 has like 10 songs in its playlist. With Radio 104.5, that could reign true.
Okay Radio 104.5, I've heard "Dani California" a million times already. No, I don't want to hear "Unsteady" by X Ambassadors again. Not "Riptide" by Vance Joy either. Oh for god's sake what's this the billionth time you've played "Smells like teen spirit"?
That's usually how it goes with Radio 104.5 and myself. And their bumpers! My friends always say I do the best impression of that guy who does the 104.5 bumpers (you can probably hear it in your head if you've heard it enough) "radio 104.5, Philadelphia's alternative".
I gotta hand it to them. They've become more than just a radio station to people my age (20-26 year olds). EVERYONE knows that station, know's how it sounds and what it plays. It's our generations WDRE 103.9. Good for them. Now just for crying out loud, expand your library a bit more! How about some meat puppets, local bands like Petal, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, NOFX, Catch 22, some more tracks from weezer besides "say it aint so", you could play "pink triangle, "el scorcho" those are some good lesser played weezer tracks. you could also play some stuff by norah jones, mellisa ethridge, garbage, the psychedelic furs. It's easy Radio 104.5- HIRE ME lol.
