>Pittsburghers mourn the passing of Porky Chedwick, the Daddio of the Raddio. We celebrate the life of the most loved DJ of all time of any American city, bar none. Porky originated the “old sound” in the 1950’s and played the very best of the rare oldies. He sincerely loved and respected his fans.
Rest in peace Porky!

CBS, we thank you for cutting out almost all mention of dance, electronica, metal, rock and alternative music at the Grammys. Because those are dead or dying genres and all we really want is to have an indistinct medley of bland mid-tempo pop performances with overamplified audience cheering (to make it exciting, the same way a laugh track makes a sitcom funny!) crammed down our indiscriminate barnyard gullets.
