Radio Comes to the Astrodome

Remember that radio station for the Astrodome's evacuees that the dome authorities decided to block? The organizers went back to the drawing board, and at noon central time today they'll start broadcasting from the parking lot instead.

    I hope to listen from Frank Sinatra: katrina is a trap!

    Okay, have we come up with a play list for this radio station yet?

    Here are some suggestions:

    Refugee - Tom Petty (natch)
    Rock you like a Hurricane - Scorpions
    Blame it on the Rain - Milli Vanilli

    Riding the Storm Out- REO Speedwagon

    On second thought, no REO, they've suffered enough

    The idiot officials are worried that the afflicted would riot from rap.

    I think they would most certainly riot from Milli Vanilli.

    When the Levee Breaks- pick your version

    I only know of this chipper little oldie because they used to sing it on Sesame Street -- "Windy" by The Association.

  • ||

    Also: "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" by the Animals.

  • ||

    I vote for "Here comes the rain again" by the Eurythmics followed by "The Day the Music Died" when the station is raided for playing Milli Vanilli

  • ||

    "Five Feet High and Rising" Johnny Cash

  • Jesse Walker||

    I trust they won't play "New Orleans" from Oh! Streetcar!

    Welcome to the Terradome - public enemy

    Radio beat the Astrodome czar...
