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?
