The first repeat song of the day: Kenny Chesney and the Wailers: "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven".

And if I'm lucky, I can win a four day trip to Vegas and the world rodeo championship something-or-another.  Qualifying at 4:20, when they play Elvis's "Viva Las Vegas".

They did not actually play Elvis, which would have been awesome, but played Shania instead.

And after 4 hours, I'm wishing for a song with some different instrumentation. A different chord structure, or backing instruments, something!  They all sound the same. I'm not hearing anything different between Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, or some other guy I've now forgotten.

... and at 5pm we have the first Garth Brooks sighting!  I can't believe I've heard more Taylor Swift than Garth Brooks today.

DOwn to the last 30 minutes of this.  It hasn't been so bad. I don't usually listen to long stretches of radio, and when I do it's woxy, so I'm used to an extensive playlist.

The only repeats of specific songs have been Kenny Chesney and Josh Turner, and each of those were played twice.  There wasn't a whole lot of super-new stuff, except Taylor Swift.  None of the "Muzik Mafia" were played.  I thought I'd get "Redneck Woman" or some Big and Rich fer sure! The Alison Krauss was a nice treat.

Oh- no Brooks and Dunn or Hank Jr., either!

As far as radio goes, not bad- very few commercials! A few for station sponsored activities, some political ads (6 McCain vs. 1 Obama, lots of Elizabeth Dole) and the DJ's didn't chat alot.  It would have been nice to have some more about the songs, but I didn't have to listen to alot of blah blah blah about stuff.

ooh- Hank Jr. is talking about liberals like Obama talking against good folks who love their guns, guns that have been passed down for generations. (???- I don't get that either)  Don't be bitter!  Vote for McCain!

It's 6:00, and I'm turning off the radio, and the tv on to watch election returns. 

I am finishing with one more George Strait (I think that makes 6 different songs for the day), and Gretchen Wilson is next, but I'll not be listening to the Redneck Woman.

Not too bad of an experience, but then again, anything would be easier than listening to 8 hours of soulja boy!

Have a great evening y'all!

Great job, Va-V! Wish I hadn't been traveling all day so I could have offered more support. Congrats!

Great job! I was in a meeting all day. Sounds like country isn't as bad as pop.
