I caught the WAVE this weekend. That is, I caught 94.7 KTWV . . . rode it for quite a while, too (Pop Eye, by Patrick Goldstein, Feb. 15).
My surf report:
Bartles & Jaymes all around! Frank Cody, Howard Bloom and a bevy of New Jersey marketing mavens have created the first synthetic radio station! It sings, it plays, finds plenty of time for advertising, talks (sort of), and does everything a real radio station does, except . . . it's not human! Isn't that amazing?!
But wait, there's more! Check out these great vibes: "new age music"! It's soothing, relaxing. Just like the music your parents used to play . . . now with special additives DX-7 and Linn 9000! It's better than Valium . . . not a bummer in the bunch.
How about that? Don't answer yet! You also get a special collection of "Contemporary Dramatic Moments." Burrow inside the tormented angst of four young professionals as they explore the seedy underworld of mutual funds, casual sex and BMW repair . . . simple, inspirational, everyday moments that have meaning for us all.
