Yet Another Sign of the Apocolypse

Ride with me for a moment... My girls have reached a stage (12 & 9) where life revolves around the radio - just waiting for those favorite songs to play (the pop ones they play at least twice a day EVERY day).

So we're riding home, listening to THEIR station, when I hear a few familiar notes, and loudly proclaim, "I can't believe it! They're actually playing some GOOD music for a change!!" and I crank the volume. Only...

I've been lucky..my kids really like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and Bob Marley. No Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana... I hope my luck holds out!
