Red Radio, not that revolutionary
Yesterday, while wandering through the Warehouse, I listened to the music they blasted through the stereo in the red barn of imports. They probably play music because such shops have found music keeps people buying.
It was then announced that I was listening to 'Red Radio'.
I was a bit puzzled.
There may be a red flag flying here, but Red Radio definitely seemed to be missing something. Where was the rousing chorus 'Solidarity Forever' or 'Union Maid'? While these songs have an important history, they are probably due for an update - a punk/metal backing or a phat hip hop beat - now that would be intriguing. Would a greater consciousness of unions in the warehouse lead to better pay and conditions for warehouse workers?
Its possible they might play the Manic Street Preachers' later MOR sounding material like 'If you tolerate this' - though I doubt many shoppers would have the slightest idea what the song was about (the Spanish Civil War).
Any other requests?
