Same thing here. Toronto station CFNY, back when they were "The Spirit
Of Radio", used to play the JBC all the time. At the time, I thought
they must be bigger than the Smiths. Nice thought, but alas reality
intruded when I headed off to college, just out of CFNY's range. No one
at school knew who the heck I was talking about. When you hear a song on
the radio a lot, cause you listen a lot, you tend to think it's
overplayed but really you've just listened to the radio too much. Well,
something like that.
