City Paper is not for tourists
On the way to work this morning, Big 100.3 started playing Jackson Browne‘s “Boulevard.” Reflexively, I switched to 94.7, the Globe. But IT WAS PLAYING THE SAME SONG! “Boulevard” is one of those songs I’m pretty sure nobody actually likes; it just wormed its way into the classic rock canon by dint of Browne’s association with actually popular classic rockers like the Eagles and whoever played the No Nukes concert. And to have no choice but to listen to that or some crap on NPR was freaking deadly, man.
