FUNKY OLD MEDINA

Calls to 107.5 FM produced only this response: We re experiencing technical difficulty. That was the radio station s only excuse for playing raspy rapper Ton Loc s Wild Thing non-stop on Monday, July 23rd. Flyer intern Hannah Walton reports that by Tuesday morning things appeared to be fixed. I tuned in and didn t hear Wild Thing, she says. I heard somebody say, Hey, hey, you gotta wake up, you are on the air. We ve got to cut to a commercial. And then they cut to a commercial. Last time we checked, Wild Thing was back in extra-heavy rotation. Whatever happened to the good old days when technical difficulty meant that you just went off the air for a while?
