The end of 101.9 The End

OK, so a little over a week ago something unexpected and sad happened. As I was driving to work I tuned in to my favorite radio station 101.9 The End to find that it was gone. In it's place was a new radio station playing "Generation X" music. It was an odd experience. As I listened to "Mr. Wendell" by Arrested Development and some song by C&C Music Factory it was strangely nostalgic. I felt like I was back at a middle school dance walking laps around the auditorium thinking that if I just did one more lap I would get up the guts to ask Trisha Reeves to dance with me (just for the record, I never did). Anyway, I was sad to lose my favorite radio station. No more Chunga and Cort in the morning. No more Stupid News, Chunga Poles or "What's Happenin' Hot Stuff." No more listening to Chunga talk in his goofy German accent or his hilarious character of Flight Attendant Roy. I guess I can add this to the list of reasons why I don't like Utah.

So, the big question is: What am I gonna listen to on my drive to work now? Well, I listen to KSL News Radio on my way home but that's not a viable option for the morning. Why you ask? Well, I will tell you. I can't stand listening to Amanda Dickson. Now, please don't misunderstand; I have no doubt that she is a delightful person. In fact, that is part of the problem. She is just too freakin' perky. Seriously, that woman could be talking about a baby being murdered and still sound like she's about to erupt into a fit of giggles. I mean, her voice is so sugary sweet I'm surprised she doesn't get cavities just from talking. She's kinda the opposite of Richard G. Scott who always sounds like he's about to start crying. Now, on the exceedingly unlikely event that Ms. Dickson should read this post I would like to say: I'm sorry. It's not you; it's me. Or better yet: It's not you, it's just your voice. If you are saddened by reading this I will happily bake you a delicious pound cake and add you as a facebook friend.

Anyway, if anybody has any suggestions of a new radio station for me to listen to in the morning I would be happy to hear it. And for those of you who love Amanda Dickson and find her voice wonderfully delightful, please feel free to scold me and call me names.
