Quick! Radio!

K-Mozart, 1510 AM, broadcasting out of Piedmont, is no longer classical. It switched to Oldies. Or, at that's what it was playing last week. Today it's a nostalgia station: Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Sergio Mendes, Ella & Louis. Actually, on the 20 minute ride into the city this morning with the boys, we heard three Sinatra tunes. On the way back to Berkeley they even repeated the same one.

At first I thought someone at corporate headquarters wasn't paying attention to the shuffle button.

Then I realized there's actually someone programming this, because, at the top of the hour, they play "Piggies," by the Beatles. Go figure.

Also, no commercials. And the only voice between songs says "1510 AM."
