The state of college radio
This is from CMJ's chart recap, posted today:
"Adds saw a few surprises, as Stars went most added at both Radio 200 and Triple A, beating out Jens Lekman (No. 2), the Foo Fighters (No. 4) and Motion City Soundtrack (No. 5)."
Isn't the point of college radio to play things that aren't heard elsewhere? The surprise isn't that Stars, a pretty major indie-rock band, beat out the Foo Fighters and Motion City Soundtrack, it's that self-respecting college radio stations actually added the Foo Fighters and Motion City Soundtrack. All I can say is laaaaaaaaaaame.
