This started as a reply to your CD contest thread, but I will put it here because I won't participate in the contest.

I can't come up with four radio stations, but thought I'd point out that Radio Margaritaville on Sirius Satellite radio (radiomargaritaville.com) often plays exotica such as Denny, Lyman, and Don Tiki. Are they a realistic prospect for actually playing the material? I don't know, but they do surprise now and then. They are on a big Jake Shimekaburo kick of late. They don't *only* play "star" names; they play lots of niche "tropical" musicians. I'm not saying "niche" and "tropical" are necessarily labels you embrace, but you know, just sayin'...

Yeah, I know, "margaritaville" ... Hey, I didn't name it.

Mucho Mahalo,

I LOVE Sirius! I confess to leaving my reciever on the classic jazz station most of the time, but they play lots of newer artists there too. They actually have a policy of doing that, and I guess that extends to other formats too. Thanks for checking that out!

I just got the Waitiki CD. I won it by being one of the lucky callers on KFAI's Jet Set Planet. Flew out to Minneapolis last week to pick it up. Sure it was a haul but well worth it for an excellent 1st CD. It made the flight back much more enjoyable. Buy it.. you won't be disappointed.

Holy watermelon batman!

You're telling us they made you FLY OUT there to pick up the cd? Well, i certainly hope they served watermelon on the flight at least.

Well we offered to mail it to him, but the Chief just couldn't wait that long -- he needed his dose of Waitiki ASAP!

And man, just sos you know, the guy looks like a gorilla, is about 7ft tall, and smashes Watermelons by just looking at them. The Dude is scary!

(I didn't ask for ID. He just broke into the station, busted up some chairs, said "me WIN CD," and that was that. I just handed it to him and he turned and left, strewing debris behind him as he went.)

You know, there was once a time not long ago when watermelon was served on some flights. Yes it is true that before the year zero (aka 9/11) many airlines carried fresh fruit! I remember flying on Midwest Airlines before the dark days of air travel when the flight attendant to my delight brought me a fresh pineapple filled with assorted fruit and yes, watermelon. I remember looking out the window while enjoying each delectable bite and thinking, life is good. Ah but those days are long gone. Now you’re lucky if you get a tiny bag of hard mini-pretzels and a grunt.
