Last week's first tune post-intro was XTC's Cynical Days, now this topical burner. Perhaps this is the newly denoted social commentary slot?

Commercial radio that plays the same songs over and over again and can shove itself up its own ass. You're the real deal Bob Brainen. Radio that is unpredictable and varied.
