I was listening to Regina Spektor’s very sad song “On the Radio,” which I’ve never actually heard on the radio. The tune includes the following lyrics:
“On the radio
We heard November Rain
That solo’s really long
But it’s a pretty song
We listened to it twice
‘Cause the DJ was asleep”
Guns ‘N Roses’ November Rain is also a pretty song—although I’ve never heard it on the radio either, come to think of it. Anyway, I was listening to both of these pieces on Youtube.com, and thinking how great it would be if there were a music radio station in my vicinity where the DJ actually fell asleep and accidentally played the same piece twice.
Does anybody ever do that on the radio (deliberately or accidentally)? With the widespread use of programming software, is it even possible any more?
