Is it just me or does it sound like all of the DJ's on 99.7 have speech impediments?? They are all sufficiently bilingual enough to be able to entertain us without sounding like they're thinking
and even, god-forbid, translating
what they want to say before they say it. And what's with all of the pauses that punctuate every sentence?? and the enunciation... my god, the enunciation! They end each sentence as if they've just said something extraordinary and mind-boggling. There is a certain weatherman who takes forever to say that it's hot and humid. Kuwait has what is probably the most predictable weather in the entire world. The weather only really changes every five to six months, so couldn't they contact that guy on a semi-annual basis?? Seriously, I could put my ten year old cousin on the phone and she could give the weather and
she would be a helluva lot more entertaining. Don't these people go through some sort of screening process before they get on the air?? and once they make it, shouldn't the listeners have a say in who gets to stay
on the air?! 'cos let me tell you, if I were in charge of that place, some people would get their a**es seriously fired.
Now, don't get me wrong. I don't have a personal vendetta against 99.7. What about Marina FM?? What's that
all about? At least, the superstation plays some decent music (Ex. Friday), the only thing I ever hear coming out of 88.8 are obscure latin songs that nobody knows. This isn't Marbella people!! hablo Englisho?!
So, in search of the perfect DJ, I flipped my dial to VOA. I was pleasantly surprised to find witty and (ok, I'm biased) american DJ's. There used to be this hilarious guy with a show.. Rick Dees top 40. That show was tight! If any of you out there know if this show is on and/or when it's on. Hit me with an e-mail or a comment and let me know 'cos I miss Rick!
I'm not gonna comment on the arab stations. I don't like to talk about things I don't know, so ergo... no comment.
Basically, in my opinion, the only station worth listening to is 94.7 'cos it's the station my Ipod broadcasts out of... :DPeace out, K-Town.
