Stephen Colbert Hates KZPS. Sorry.
A lot of you don't like the format change over at KZPS-FM (92.5); you've said so right here. Well, you're in good company: Stephen Colbert is also no fan. Last night on The Colbert Report, he included ZPS' ditching of advertisements as one of "The Four Horsemen of the A-Pop-Calypse," because, after all, "commercials remind us that we need things....if it weren't for commercials, I'd forget to buy food." No fan of "country-rock radio station" KZPS' plan to have their jocks "promote its product conversationally," Colbert instead prefers a station that plays nothing but ad jingles, much like his own 2 a.m. show "Colbert on the ERT." So, wag of the finger, KZPS, you "musical menace." And tip o' the hat. --Robert Wilonsky
