Late night radio is weird
Weird things happen late at night. Not news, I know, but there are still some things weird enough to make me pause during a nocturnal drive to stare at my radio in a mixture of wonder and horror.
This is one of them. Yes, the theme from Shaft. I heard it playing on a regular, commercial radio station as I drove home at 3:30 am Friday night/Saturday morning. It was surreal.
I might have been able to understand if it was a college radio station. I’ve heard those play everything from The Wizard’s Last Rhymes to Still Alive. (And let me tell you, GLaDOS’ voice suddenly and unexpectedly emanating from your car’s speakers is a terrifying thing.) On a commercial station though? Madness.
