When I was in college I walked into the department office one morning and the secretary was having a particularly frustrating morning. I was a DJ at one of the radio stations in town at the time and when she saw me coming she decided I needed to hear about her problem.
Now, understand this was 100 years ago before the iPod and satellite radio, and other than cassettes (I’m not 8-track old) local radio was your only option. The secretary was a perfectly average, perfectly wonderful and lovely woman. “I was so frustrated driving in to work this morning! Every station was yak, yak, yak.” Then, making a motion as though she was pushing radio buttons, she said, “Just play me a song!”
As the noise continues to increase, try and remember there are a lot of perfectly average, perfectly wonderful, perfectly lovely people who just want to know if it is going to rain. If you play them their song, they won’t push the button.
