If a public place was playing that radio station, would it count?

Been seeing a lot of posters advertising the new Pink Floyd album around town, not sure how well the actual record will be received because I get the impression the expectations are pretty low. Mastodon are playing in Copenhagen here in December, so I've been seeing several posters for that concert too.

I used to go to a trendy nightclub in Hong Kong that usually played mind-numbing Euro dance-pop, but every night they'd slow things down for slow dancing and always played Conquistador from the Procols.  It always got me off my ass for a turn....but nobody else!  It came to pass that EVERY punter in the joint HATED that number except for me.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Many years ago there was a program on Swedish radio that was aired every week. The intro-music to the program was the beginning of Jethro Tulls Cross Eyed Mary ( the flute section ).

I went to see the PT Anderson movie "Inherent Vice" last night and it started off by playing the entirety of Vitamin C (even the sqeualy outro). Safe to say it won me over.

This morning in a hotel close to Heatrow I was eating my baked beans and the background music was from Opera Sauvage by Vangelis.

Time to revive the thread: Earlier this week at the public library I actually saw a Danish children's book that references Frank Zappa, Julie Loves Finn by Maria Helleberg which is a semi-autobiographical story of a teenage girl growing up in the early 1970s. Zappa's one of the musicians the main character's boyfriend listens to.

I actually find it more interesting that the character's also mentioned as listening to the 13th Floor Elevators, since I think very few non-Americans had even heard of that band back then.

I remember back last year at work hearing the general sh*t classic rock radio play Roundabout the moment I walked in. Expected it to be the single edit - was the whole 8 minute cut. Made my day.

The new Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys) biopic Love and Mercy shows Brian at a Moody Blues show as they play "Nights in White Satin." Brian then remarks "this is such a great song."

Is Supertramp big in Florida?

'Florida Man Reportedly Dances On Police Car To Summon Help In Vampire Battle'

Authorities in Florida have released bizarre video footage of a man dancing on the roof of a police cruiser in an attempt to summon help battling a "woman with fangs." The song "Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates can be heard blaring from the man's vehicle as he climbs atop the cruiser and begins gyrating to the 1970s Billboard Top 40 hit.The song was followed by Supertramp's "Goodbye Stranger."

There seems to be not much going on news wise in South Africa as South African mainstream news media platform news24.com is actually "wasting" space and published the full Nomination list  of The 2015 Progressive Music Awards full list.
I guess most of the readers of that site have never heard of 95% of the nominees.
