I usually listen to the radio in the morning before I go to work. I chose my morning DJs or morning show crew not because I like the music they play. In most cases, I like about one in five songs, and even then, I don’t love that one song. I chose my morning DJs because they are entertaining when they talk and they have a lot of stuff going on that is both predictable and comfortable.
I don’t drive my car to work, but when I am in my car, I want something else. I want songs that will take me away from all of that. I might want to hear the news, but since most of it is bad and depressing, I tend to stay away from those stations.
Today, I drove out to Mississauga and turned on the radio as I hit the highway. I have about nine pre-sets and mostly I think of them as a slot machine. I press a button and hope for a jackpot. This is seldom true. I usually get only one or two good songs on my drive and have to resort to putting on my own music. That wasn’t the case today. I heard a whole pile of songs I liked, one after another. It was like they were playing my driving playlist.
In case you didn’t know, that was Today’s Perfect Moment.
