The radio sucks...case in point, I tried to get a late-night DJ to play the new Oasis single...to which he responded that he only had it in Yiddish. Pisses me off, but to be fair, I also heard that a lot of radio stations have computer programmed setlists, so not even the DJ's can control it...which is why I have a CD player at all times.

I know! It's awful. There are some decent online radio streams, but that's the only way I'll listen to anything on the radio now...

Hey there Mona!

High Fidelity is a fun movie! And if you are looking for an
easy, quick and fun way to find out about "cool and obscure" bands, check out Q Magazine. You kind generally find it at Barnes&Noble or Borders if you live in the US.

YES! Read the book. It's MUCH better than the movie. I wouldn't have liked the movie nearly as much if I didn't the book. I want to marry Rob. AND HE'S BRITISH IN THE BOOK!

Seeing as I am a radio DJ, I think I can offer some useful insight here:

1. The idea that DJ's cannot pick the music they play is VERY true. Outside of college radio, the only DJ's that pick their own music are dance mix DJ's like DJ Tiesto(he has a syndicated mix show in the U.S.) and Pete Tong(he's internationally syndicated). And even they make out a playlist beforehand.

2. Most DJ's don't really care for 70% of what they play.They can't let their musical tastes get in the way of getting the best jobs they can find.

3. As for looking up obscure/semi-obscure acts, i suggest The Secret History of Rock by Roni Sarig and Unknown Legends of Rock by Richie Unterberger. The last one comes with a CD of some of the artists mentioned in the book. That's how I found out about Nick Drake, ESG, and The 13th Floor Elevators, along with a lot more!
