      How pathetic is this--I listen to NPR on the computer and audio books in the gym.

      Oh--you were asking about music? :confused:

        Claire,

          I can never hear "Wait wait..." in real time, so it's good to have running during the morning email slog.

            One of the funniest things I've ever heard was on NPR. I don't know if it will translate though.

            It was 1995 or 1996 and I was driving back from an out of town business meeting with a colleague and we were listening to NPR.

            The report was on Teletubbies, which were about to leap the Atlantic and make their debut on PBS. There was some mild controversy about a show targeting such young children. At the time, not many people had heard of Teletubbies, so the report started with an explanation that the characters were talking in "baby talk" that kids of a very young age could understand, according to creators of the Teletubbies.

            The report then explained that NPR had shown a preview to several very young children to ge their reaction.

            At this point, I begin thinking that NPR was pulling a huge prank.
            Interviewer: What did you think of the scene?

            Child: For umm, to they go on the hill for the Winky ummm then turn and ummm I for they saw the top.

            Voice-Over Translator for Child: I liked the show. I particularly enjoyed the part where Winky Tinky went to the top of the hill and used his powers from the top of his antennae.

            They "interviewed" several children in this manner, with each child speaking in unintelligible child-speak followed by a very distinguished voice "translating" the child's statements in the most proper and serious voice you've ever heard - as though the translator thought he was translating a global peace plan in front of the UN.

            My buddy and I were laughing so hard that I thought we were going to have to pull the car over. Since neither of us had heard of Teletubbies before, we both suspected that NPR was having a laugh at our expense.


            Oh, and now I'm listening to the Dodgers/Phillies game.

                  We have NPR on in the car all the time, though I often have to turn it off when the kids are with me, in my censor role. But two funny things came through.

                  My son was 3 in 2001. He didn't get to hear any of 9/11, but later that fall, we were at a friend's house, and he and the other kid were playing some sort of house. My son walked up to my girlfriend, handed her a piece of paper, and said, "I'm a bad guy; this is anthrax." That's when I started being really vigilent about turning the radio off.

                  A couple of years ago, after a pertinent story, he asked me, "Mommy, if I go to college in Massachusetts, do I HAVE to marry a boy?"

                    He didn't say music only!

                    I am listening to the morning talk show to be followed by Rush (yeah, I know, but after that is the O'Reilly Factor and I don't want to change the station!).

                      That is both funny and scary. I mean without children, I dont really think about the whole censorship thing too much. But you are right, in todays day and age, you really have to stay on top of everything.

                        I'm continually amazed at what sponges kids are.

                        Oh, and if you asked my kids the question on the thread, son would say Green Day's "American Idiot" and my daughter would pick something by Miley Cyrus or the girl who plays I Carly.

                          Ray Charles - Sitting On Top Of The World

                          Johnny Cash - Don't Take Your Guns To Town

                          The Nixons - ...At The Sun

                          Quickserv Johnny - Road Hollow (they were a Dallas band back in the early 90's)
