"Annoying Music"

An AP story in yesterday's Portland Press Herald reminded me of last week's
thread about bad pop songs.  WBEZ-FM, a public radio station in Chicago, has
a weekly show called "Annoying Music" hosted by Jim Nayder.  The show has
been running for seventeen months and according to the article is possible.
 Some of the songs mentioned were:

"It's a Small Wold" by Slim Whitman
"Proud Mary" by Leonard Nimoy
"Hey Jude" by Bing Crosby
"American Pie" by the Brady Bunch
"Yesterday" by Kate Smith

According to Nayder, he picks music that is annoying, but not intenionally
funny or bad.

Maybe he's got an idea for a new format on AM.  Hell, there are cable
networks of only bad old sitcoms.
