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.
