I was on my way home from work yesterday, listening to the radio, when the strangest thing happened.
I had it on the local AM station, listening to end of the Rush Limbaugh broadcast. Cut to commercials. The usual stuff.
All of a sudden, there's a commercial for the new Queens of the Stone Age album. Talk about your things that make you go WTF? And then it was on to the station PSAs.
QOTSA advertising on AM radio during Rush? I'm still trying to twist that one around my brain.
Funny thing is, it worked.
You see, I didn't know that QOTSA had released a new album. Now I know, and I'll order it.
Another observation. Is it just me, or have CD prices tumbled down drastically of late? Amazon has this album at $9.99, which is what you'd pay for it on iTunes. If this is now the case, then iTunes looks a bit less attractive. I would much rather have the hard copy in the case of music. And why download an inferior sampling, when I can load the CD in at a higher rate?
