I am not immune and it infiltrates my life. I am the first to admit to that! Ha!
Over the lunch hour we’ve taken to listening to the number ones at one (why no number twos at two?!). Rich decided a few weeks ago that he would prefer to listen to tunes rather than listen to talk radio on CBC. At first we put on some Jandek, then some 365 Days selections but then on a particularly lazy day just decided to switch the knob from FM to AM rather than drag out the computer and speakers. What was on the AM flip side of Radio 1? Zoomer Radio: the number ones at one.

“Is that Andy Williams?”
“Hey, I thought that was by the California Raisins?”
“Most Song Poems are better than this song.”
Olivia Newton John really peaked with Xanadu.”

This is our lunch hour.
We discuss the music being played. Today we had a conversation about the appropriation of popular music tunes for in-school church services. I had these at my elementary school growing up. “That’s What Friends Are For,” “One Tin Soldier,” “The Rose.” All of those good Catholic songs, you know.
Regarding conversations over lunch, there were some gems in there. Barbershop String Quartets. Inflammation Overload.
Glad I bought those rubber boots a decade ago with all the mashed potatoes on the sidewalk today and all.
