I also went off onto a side-tangent, bringing up their similarly-annoying "Off to School" Requests in the morning -- and how after six weeks it became clear that these had virtually nothing to do with kids making classical request. Or kids. Or even classical (but rather movie themes). Yet they've continued this way, as "Off to School" Requests for the past year. And I noted how twisted the station's effort have become to justify calling these "Off to School" Requests, rather than just simply Morning Requests.
I explained what their convoluted introduction now was when time for their "Off to School" requests -- but I did it from memory, and knew that I didn't do it justice, only mentioning a small portion of how bizarre the introduction had become. Besides which, I suspected most people probably thought I was joking that it not only was this stupid, but actually even worse. So, to be fair, I carefully listened to the introduction and took notes and marked it all down. I've corrected and updated the original post, and this is now how it reads --
By the way, how silly has it gotten? This week, they changed the name to -- buckle your seatbelts -- "And now, it's the KUSC Summer Vacation Request for Out of School Students or Studentless Teachers or even Parents and Grandparents or to Celebrate a Birthday or Mark a Milestone or Highlight an Achievement or Just Share a Favorite to Kick Off a Summer Day." Really! I'm not exaggerating. I wrote it all down verbatim. That's how far they've jerry-rigged the concept to try and justify calling it "Off to School" when it has next to nothing about schools...!
