As much as I made fun of local radio everyplace we lived… sometimes I wish there was local radio for Atenas. Maybe I can convince my paddle-buddy Rick– a former FM radio deejay – of the real need for local radio. Never mind that he doesn’t speaka-da-spanish, I bet he can quickly learn the phrases he would need:
- At Number 68 on the Top 500 Count-down is Jr. Samples and BR-549.
- Local weather is hot and humid with no/slight/guaranteed chance of rain.
- Next up: Swap-Shop
- Stay tuned for weather on the fourteens.
- Now a word from our sponsors.
The current version of local radio is this… a truck or car with speakers mounted on the top blasting the same message on a loop. Sometimes it’s vital info about the electric or water being cut off for repairs… but more often than not, it’s an entrepreneur hawking goods or services.
