RoHo, I trust your reporting but are you sure those are the top spins at Star 94 and B98.5??

‘Cause it seems to me every time I tune in either of those stations, an Adele song is playing! :lol:

And I guess we can’t really call them “spins” anymore since they’re all digital tracks!

“Somebody That I Used To Know” has a different version being played on the radio than what’s on the album. Can’t find the radio version. Suggestions???

Sometimes it feels that are the ONLY 10 songs on most Atlanta stations.
Over and over and over these songs are played. torture!

That song is incredibly annoying and poorly written, typical radio.
