World's Worst iPod: Last Christmas by Wham!
Contrary to popular belief, Kitty does not hate Christmas, it's just certain holiday songs that drive her nuts. Like today'sWWiP selection, "Last Christmas" by Wham!

While some folks wanted to hear this fine ditty from 1984, ultimately we did not play it. But you can hear it, aplenty, on our sister station 94.9 WOLX.

Or just watch this video over and over.

World's Worst iPod: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

We delved into the iPod's holiday selections today, and pulled out the highly irritating song by Elmo and Patsy, "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."  It was originally recorded in 1979 but started getting seasonal radio airplay in the early 1980s.

Despite Kitty's appeal that her late mother hated this song, lots of people had happy memories associated with it, so we did play it in its entirety. Sorry if it's still stuck in your head.

World's Worst iPod: Get Here
Oleta Adams took the song "Get Here" to #5 in 1990, but it appeared very few of her fans were listening this morning. We didn't end up playing this song.

Around an hour after we concluded the iPod segment of the show, we got a phone call from an Operation Desert Storm veteran who said the song meant a lot to him and his fellow soldiers. Had we heard that sooner, the outcome probably would have been different.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
