Until then, however, they keep playing Pachabel's Canon over and over again. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It's been really interesting, because they play many different versions that feature different instrument families...piano, strings, horns, classical guitar, flute, and even a synthesizer version (but I do really hate the version where someone is whisper-singing in the background "when...will...I....touch....you....again"). It's been very educational, and really, there are worse songs they can pick to do so. It's become a running joke in the car.
"Hey Mom, I'd like to hear some Pachabel's Canon." Maggie or Chris says when they are tired of listening to our regular ESPN.
"Really, hmmm I wonder if its on. Wow...what a coincidence! Here it is!" I exclaim. And then we listen to various versions for the next half hour.
But they haven't sufficiently explained why just one song until May 1st. But I have a theory. At least, my imagination has run away with me.
What if there is one last d.j., stuck in the 1970's, unable to ponder the fact that "A Horse With No Name" won't be played four times a day in Fort Wayne anymore, is holed up in the booth and he won't leave. Hunger strike....whatever. So to get him out, to break his spirit, this whole broadcast is actually them just blasting Pachabel's Canon into the building until he can't take it anymore and finally runs screaming from the building....
I have to say, we're going on two weeks now. I admire his tenacity.
