It is an inescapable law of nature or something. If we move, we’ll move someplace just out of reach of what would be our favorite TV and radio stations.
Seriously. Every time we have arrived in a new location, we’ll find out that the PBS station we get is nice… but the one in the next market is showing Black Adder and Red Dwarf. Whereas, ours just finished a complete run of Dr. Who and has decided to lay off the cult British shows for a while.
Or else we see that the classic rock station in our town is ok… but the ones on either coast kick its butt. You could get old-time country… if you just lived a bit further the other way. The college radio station is fine… but there’s a cooler one on the other side of town (too bad they have the power output of a cheap walkie talkie).
Does any of this make even the remotest sense to anyone? Or is this a complex I picked up from straining to hear static-filled AM broadcasts from New York, Chicago and Wheeling, West Virginia, on my crystal radio?
