Here is a choice I was recently forced to make, which put me in considerable psychological distress. I was driving to work when both Steely Dan - Hey Nineteen and ELP - I Believe in Father Christmas both came on the radio on different stations at the same time. Which one would you have chosen?

Surely not the best ELP song, but I like them too much.

Hey Nineteen is far from the Dan's best, but I really don't like seasonal songs by rock groups.

This needs another option "I don't listen to the radio".

I quite like the Christmas song but I LOVE Hey Nineteen.  But then, there's not much of snarky Fagen in that period that could go wrong for me. "Hard times have fallen, soul survivors/She thinks I am crazy but I am just growing old" LOLLOLLOL  Love that line and the way Fagen sings it just totally makes it.

So presumably we are talking about the alternative version on Works Volume Two without orchestra? The original was a Greg Lake solo release (although co-written by him and Pete Sinfield).

I would rather listen to a radio commercial than Hey Nineteen.

Hard situation to be stuck with. Thank God I don't listen to radio anymore. That being said, I would go with ELP, though Steely Dan is a great option

Or “My limo driver doesn’t like Prog”. I used to listen to nothing but CDs or NPR in the car, but here in Oklahoma the dirt from the dirt roads I frequent, including the one I live on, has gotten up into the dashboard and has rendered the CD player unusable. Doesn’t everyone have this problem? Anyway, I hear occasional well known Prog tunes on the radio. When I can’t stand what’s on, I’ll change the station to a Public radio station and hear either NPR or Classical music.

I do watch the PBS Newshour. Political commentary from Shields and Brooks every Friday is mandatory.
