Yesterday morning at Cincinnati radio station B105, there was not a “Good Times, Great Country” feeling in the air as many were angry about the Dixie Chicks sweeping the Grammys the night before.
“Nope, no way we’re gonna start playing them again – not until they call and thank us,” stated a man who said he was morning D.J. Duke Hamilton but really didn’t look much like him. “Those Chicks owe us a lot.”
When asked for his reasoning on his statement, the man said, “Look, we wouldn’t play them here, because of what Natalie Maines said about our leader, our beloved President Bush. That just led to them selling more records and becoming even more popular. We did them a favor. Now they can’t even call and thank us? What ingrates.”
A gentleman who told me he was the music director at B105 echoed the same sentiment.
“They don’t call, they don’t write, they can’t even send us an e-mail,” said the man who clearly had been crying. “The Chicks would be nothing without us. Nothing!! Our feelings are very, very hurt.”
Below is a clip of the Dixie Chicks singing the song that earned them song of the year – performed at The Grammys. No, you won’t be hearing it on B105 – not until the Chicks are ready to make nice.
