Jack FM: KC's Outlet for Dumbasses

I listen to all kinds of music. Well, save for Strip Hop. I don't care if you are in love with a stripper. I don't care how much money you have, and whenever I see a video of someone showing off their "bling", I think, "Wow...they must have a really small penis."

That aside, the radio settings on my car are as varied as the colors in my underwear drawer. Hard rock, Country, Oldies, to name a few...and Jack FM.

Jack FM is probably one of the stations I listen to the most. No blathering DJ's who think they are funny, no interviews with porn stars and B to C-list celebs that I've never even heard of, and most importantly, no Britney Spears. The Jack format "playing what we want" works well for me, even though they do play some songs from time to time, that suck. Those times, I defer to satellite radio.

Their newest thing is a number that people can call in to and leave messages, and Jack in turn plays these messages on air as a sort of station endorsement. At first, the messages were along the lines, "I think you're great" and "this is the best station ever". Somewhere along the way, Kansas City started thinking they were funny, then the messages started getting goofy. Jack continued to air them. Taken as encouragement, Kansas City's messages became outright retarded.

If terrorists were to pick a city to attack based on our collective intelligence, Kansas City would be on the top of his list after listening to Jack. The people that call that line and leave messages, make everyone sound like we take the short-bus to get to work. And just when I think I've heard a message from the dumbest person in town, someone comes along and outdoes them.

It's getting so bad, that I haven't been listening to Jack as much as I used to.

So, please, redneck population of KC. PLEASE! Stay away from the phones and stop calling that number. If you were actually funny, you would have your own sitcom. It you were actually clever, you would know how much of an assclown you look make yourself sound, and you wouldn't call radio stations and leave retarded messages.

Otherwise, I might just have to listen to one of those other stations that plays Britney Spears.

I listen to NPR. Almost exclusively.

My GF is a Country fan.

We don't take too many long road trips.

That's why we've been together for 2 years.

I'm just sayin'.
