irony is lost on the fm dial

So my gym plays WBOS over the speakers in both the main workout area and the locker rooms. As I'm preparing to shower at the end of today's workout, I hear the DJ going down the list of concerts and cultural events going on. Any list of concerts in Boston naturally includes events at a club called Man Ray in Central Square. The DJ then moves on and describes a show at the Museum of Fine Arts. "This isn't like the usual stodgy stuff they have there," he says. "This guy works in photography, but he also does this really cool new thing where he takes the photographic paper and exposes it to light directly. It's a really cool effect -- check it out!"

Sigh. I suppose 80 years really is an eternity to Clear Channel Communications.
