And Now For Your Radiohead Feel-Good Story of the Month:

“There is a radio station in little Spokane, Washington, that never plays Radiohead (other than Creep and High and Dry)……but yesterday something amazing happened. The Peak (105.7, Spokane, WA) interviewed a band called BoxCar Children on their Local Band night where a band is interviewed and played on the radio. Well the Peak had to go out and buy a copy of OK Computer in order to play Karma Police which was requested to be played by BoxCar Children (or else there would be no show). Almost brought me to tears………Radiohead being on the radio and all, it is good to see that someone out there is showing us the true way of the Radiohead.”
(thanks to Tony for that one)
