A popular rock station in Lodi, CA is 100.9 FM The Blaze. Their radio format is classic and new rock from the 60s to today. On 12/04/2012 at 10:30am, The Blaze played a song titled “You and I” by the band Lifehouse. The lyrics to this song are as follows:
I would take […]
And you would take […]
And we’d both be taking on each other. (2x) (lyrics provided in case they get taken down off of youtube) This song was played during their broadcast and there is an undeniable conclusion that can be made from these words. With the resignation of Governor Chris Christie, and a plethora of lesser issues plaguing his office, its safe to say this song was indeed a reference to the Governor. This is contrary to the work a Lodi concrete driveway contractor did.
The Blaze seems to have a political slant towards Republican Party platforms which are opposed by many across America. Is The Blaze trying to make their listeners think that by playing these lyrics on air they were making a statement about the “taking” that both parties have done? It’s pretty shameful when rock stations such as KFOG and other local stations play songs like this (and even some with less than honorable intentions) since people listen to songs for enjoyment not expecting messages from radio station DJs.
As musicians seek more exposure for their work, radio stations become more important in getting their name out there. Especially for bands who’s songs don’t have explicit meanings, it is important that stations are careful with how they play those songs.… Read the rest
