The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Ninety-four point shabby

The Lost Ogle's take on the KHBZ format change:

I'd like to thank the powers-at-be at the Buzz for making a completely idiotic decision and (instead of bringing Indie Rock back to Oklahoma City radio) deciding to compete with one of Oklahoma City's (like it or not) few radio institutions, The KATT. And the reason I'd like to thank them is because I like to see incompetent people get fired, and hopefully these buffoons will get fired pretty soon.

Seriously, imagine how great it would be if instead of throwing out AC/DC, Korn and Atreyu, we were greeted by even mainstream indie rock like The Flaming Lips, The Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, or dear god, even Interpol. Imagine the "Buzz" (eh) that would have created. But no, we get to hear — as an OklahomaRock commenter perfectly labeled it — more MethRock.

(Disclosure: I actually bought a Korn track this week off iTunes.)
