    K-Earth 101 played it alot, but the song is so good, burnout was not a factor. K-Surf 1260 is probably spinning it now.

    A matter of opinion. Personal taste, but Sugar Sugar, for example, was such a straight-up unapologetic bubblegum song that I kind of had to...well, not like it, exactly, but not dislike it either. But Green Tambourine had a kind of a hippie undercurrent to it that annoyed me.

    Although the song was written in NYC by two veteran Brill Building writers about beggars on Broadway.

    Like all of the songs they were playing in the 90's, KRTH burned it to a krispy krisp. It is a below average song that adds color and interest to an oldies station (or a station like KCSN/KSBR), but does not deserve constant rotation on any station; multiple spins become annoying. My 2 cents. Playing it in the context Sky did is just fine. And I bet he won't spin it again this year.
