So this week I spoke about the best music applications out there, this week I learned how much I appreciated them. I recently had to drive my parent’s Nissan Rouge without an auxiliary cord and was forced to listen to the radio for the entire four-hour drive. I wanted to cry (fair warning this blog is going to be more of a rant than anything else.)

Finding something that I actually enjoyed took forever, and when I finally found a song (after spending five minutes searching) it was either half over already or censored to hell.

The censorship on the radio is horrific, what’s so wrong with just saying the word “fuck” or “ass” if every single other line of a song on the radio is going to be suggestive anyway, it makes no damn sense. What’s even worse is the way that stations try to cover it by adding shitty remix
sounds too where a curse word is supposed to be, it just further ruins an already ruined song.

Seriously guys, its 2016 everyone over the age of a day has heard the word fuck before, get over it.

The connectivity of the stations was an issue too, every time I hit a speed bump the music would meld into a mix of two stations and static, it made my ears bleed.

On top of that, you have to listen to too shitty advertisements that all seem to run at the same time, I know it’s unavoidable because these stations have to make money but still, it’s annoying.

I also know that traditional radio has been an outlet for many artists to get their stuff out there, but guys use Youtube or any of the apps I mentioned last week, in the internet age it will make spreading your stuff much easier.

So the moral of the story is, always bring an auxiliary cord (keep 10 or 20 of them in your car if you must so you never run out), or make sure you buy a car with Bluetooth or else you will hate your life like I did last week.
