Wonderful Memories

A couple of days after 9/11, I was listening to NPR on the way to work and they had a story about how Clear Channel, the largest owner of radio stations in the United States, had distributed a list of songs that it would be inappropriate to play after such a terrible tragedy.

At the end of the story, the reporter said

…and now, here is number 7 on that list. Louis Armstrong’s “It’s a Wonderful World”.

With the top down, a lump in my throat and tears streaming down my face, I turned the radio up as loud as it would go and sang with all my heart.

RATM : All songs, lol. Go them.
It warms my heart that Godsmack’s Bad Religion made the list – great song.

I’m surprised that those retards at clearchannel, have such a short list.
