I can name that tune in 10 digits
"What the heck is the name of this song?" Radio formats often don't allow for such trivial details.
To the rescue: 411-SONG. Call them up, pick up your wireless phone, dial 866-411-SONG, wait for the beep, and then hold the phone up to the sound source for at least 15 seconds.
They will send you back a text message with the song's title and artist, and if it's available as a ringtone, they'll tell you that too.
For 99 cents (buying the ringtone, if any, will cost the usual price), this strikes me as a heck of a deal.
