Fair enough for a big band at a 15,000 capacity arena. But getting a head-start on 1000 people? Just go stand at the back.

Yeah, true enough. Cloak room and merch, then back in for one last clap does no harm.

The fact that my local classic rock radio station has started playing grunge.

Well that's another thing. People do themselves no favours by using pointless shit like cloakrooms

AAF, HJY, GIR & HEB are all the same. ZLX was my only refuge until I was driving one day a couple weeks ago and heard "WZLX...bringing you Boston's best classic rock....which now includes the 90s!" and almost proceeded to drive into a wall.

And the work truck only has an AM/FM radio with no auxiliary input, so I'm screwed.

But Livin' On A Prayer 8 times a day would be fine, right?

I'm not TheWildAndTheYoung.

When I turn on a classic rock station, I expect to hear classic rock. Bob Seger, Boston, Cream, Pink Floyd, etc. There's just no need for another radio station to play the exact things that 3 other radio stations within earshot constantly play.
