World's Worst iPod: The Stroke by Billy Squier
The song "The Stroke" sounds like an intimate party for one, but despite the sexual innuendo, or because of it, almost everyone who called in this morning wanted to hear Billy Squier's first hit.

For some reason, Kitty gets creeped out by the song...but she was won over (somewhat) after learning that Billy Squier played for a time with Ringo's All Star Band. If he's good enough for a Beatle, he should be good enough to play on the air, at least once.

Added piece of trivia: the bass player for Billy Squier, Kenny Aaronson, is now with John Eddie's band. He's the one with the cool shades in the video.

World's Worst iPod: Disco Duck
We dedicated today's song to Channel 27 Meteorologist Brian Olson and his wife, after we found out he and his wife and fostering a couple of a ducks in their house.

He had never heard of this song, from Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots, but a lot of other people did, and demanded that this #1 hit from 1976 be played.

This video is almost as awesome as I'm sure Jonathan's puppetry performance was in Miss Treadwell's 4th grade class.
