The 'shortest song' entry reminds me of the time I did an entire radio show of songs under 2 minutes long.... that was kinda stressful, but HUGE fun!

Wow, that is stressful! I never envied the DJs that did the punk rock show (Raucous Waves). Me, I'd put on a 10-15 minutes songs when I could.

ha! One of the legends at my station was 'long song weekend' - it was break week and some of the people around were building a new production studio, so they just started playing nothing but 30 minute songs all day long while they worked! There was a whole lot of progressive rock played that weekend....
