rock 300

for those in the know, it's sort of like 105.5 [read: horrifyingly random] except worse: there's country. gah.

from the rock 300 site:

"And now, Rock 300 is breaking new ground by going LIVE ON LOCATION to bowling centers all across North America. With a first-of-it's kind format, Rock 300 can now bring the party to the bowling centers and offer a completely unique bowling experience, with bowling's best DJs LIVE at your center."

ground breaking? party bringing? bowling djs? whoa, sign me up. and i'm thinking maybe there's an untapped market here: what if people wanted rock 300 IN THEIR CARS? that's right, there are people doing mundane things like going to the supermarket and driving to mcdonald's when really, what they want to be doing is BOWLING. and with on location djs [bowling's BEST, mind you]... well, shoot dang! it's like you're right there, in the bowler's circle, part of the action. AMAZING, I TELL YOU. SIMPLY AMAZING.

my favorite is the "Bowling Guy meets Radio Guy" section. it's really not rocket science, guys. and which one is which? your guess is as good as mine. we've got Extra Large Tucked-In Shirt and I Sewed My Tablecloth Into A Button-Down standing uncomfortably near each other. or perhaps photoshopped uncomfortably near each other. whatever. and where is Button-Down's right hand, anyway? eeeee.

who would have thought the demand for bowling-specific radio stations even existed? what happened to the days of the jukebox as the only source of musical entertainment, when you could hear "back in black" no less than four times a game?

when the music kicked in during our second game, i had high hopes for the night. but after "going the distance" with the fine men of cake, it only went downhill from there. so sad.

as for the actual bowling, it was still awesome.
