Mick and a Christian Broadcaster Battle for My Soul!

I'm driving home from a long day at work. I've got my ipod hooked to the not-so-great (manufactur's name omitted) radio-tuner link. (I really don't care for this set-up but I'd emptied my CD changer.)

The wonder of "shuffle" had popped up "Sympathy for the Devil" from the Stone's "Love you Live" albums/CD (from the infamous '75 tour). It's a mixed bag of of tunes. Rough, not terribly "polished" like the current Stones efforts, so it's wonderful as far as I'm concerned.

But just as Keith and Ronnie crunch the opening riffs, a voice that can only come from somebody who once sold life insurance is riffing on about how "christianity" and the "bible" are "confronted by these other religions.

This signal fades out as Mick yells "...stole many a man's soul..."
"Jesus is the savior..." replies the preacher as the signal fades.
"...when the blitzkreig raged and the bodies..."

This goes on for several miles. The frequency is 88.1FM in the south bay. I wonder if this broadcast is licensed.

There are lessons here somewhere. First, these radio-tuner connectors for portable music players, including the iPod, suck (I mean, I ripped the damn CD at AIFF for better audio quality and this damn tuner-connectors makes it sound like a BAD radio.) Second, what the heck is the FCC doing? Third, a lot of preachers could learn a thing or two about DELIVERY from Mick.
