Dear Cipha Sounds, Rosenberg, K. Foxx and Old Man Ebro,
Every morning, my alarm goes off at 7 a.m., rousing me from sleep. I hit the snooze button, and then 10 minutes later, hit it again.

While that doesn’t seem like a lot of songs, keep in mind that the average radio station keeps around 150 songs in rotation at any given moment. Station managers are hoping to attract 30-something women with the “Glee”-ful programming. Now if only they could somehow send us Finn through the radio waves … [NY Post] Keep reading »
