Let me say that I tuned in to Fly 92 for a while to see what the kids are listening to. I was stunned at how many of the songs didn't have a melody. Last I checked, 2 notes was considered morse code. Moral of the story? Tune in to 97.7 because Fly 92 is about a million drops worse than your average length of Chinese water torture.
