Elvis has left the radio

After looking at about 9000 radio stations, some patterns begin to show up. One of them appears to be the death of Elvis Pressley.

Elvis would’ve turned 79 years old this year. The women who used to flock to Graceland in their spandex pants are now in the nursing home or dead.

“Oldies” format radio stations are dropping like flies – some of them are morphing into classic hits and pulling in music from the 1980s. Many have been replaced by sports or Spanish language music.

So if you fondly remember purple shag carpet and peanut butter and banana sandwiches, your time is up. In the ghetto, another little baby Elvis is being born.
