I heard Animate, Resist and a few more obscure Rush songs that are never played just last year. Actually it was very weird they had a whole hour of Rush songs on one Saturday night and they played songs you never hear on the radio. ESP since I live in SW MO. Last year too when we went and saw Rush up in St.Louis KSHE played a ton of Rush songs and alot were the more non radio songs.

You know, we don't have any radio stations around here that play Rush very often. I have heard Spirit of the Radio, Tom Sawyer, and Limelight each ONCE on the classic-hard-rock XM satellite station-thing.

 

But one time I walked into a gas station and after being inside two seconds I went beserk -- it was right in the middle of the intro of The Enemy Within. I wouldn't leave until the song was over. Anyways, thought that was weird.

 

A few months back, my very best friend (the man I intended to marry) informed me he was moving across the globe . . . I was all upset and emotional for a while and I went home and turned on the classic rock station at home, and Time Stand Still came on. That's his favorite song. I cried, 'cause I'm a sucker like that.

 

I don't know if those two are common on the radio or not, because we have no radio stations that play them, but I didn't think they were huge Rush songs.

Our local classic rock station holds a charity request drive around Thanksgiving. You call in, pay 5 bucks, 10 for long songs, and they play it. Anything, and I mean anything. So a person called in and wanted to hear Natural Science. There you go.

I never hear any Rush on the radio . . . .

So If I hear anything I'll be shocked to death !

I was driving around last week listening to 97 Rock here in Buffalo, and someone called in and requested 'Cinderella Man'.

 

AND THEY ACTUALLY PLAYED IT.

 

Like someone said earlier, I almost drove off the road in complete disbelief!!

 

Also, sometime during summer, this same station played 'The Pass' as a 'B' side feature. Again, I was so shocked I nearly fainted.

 

I guess there is a shred of hope for that station.

This may be the one that beats them all...

 

The guys at this radio station must be major RUSH fans...

 

I heard the guys, of all places, on a TALK RADIO STATION!

 

Rush Limbaugh is known for using RUSH songs in his bumper music..

 

However, I heard a commercial for his show recently that takes the cake!

 

Here in Atlanta, Rush Limbaugh is on Newsradio 640, WGST. They recently came up with a commercial comparing and contrasting RUSH to RUSH! However, it was done in the form of an old K-Tel ad (now how much would you pay?) All of this was done over the music to Fly By Night. I'll see if I can get a tape of this promo to post on the web so all can enjoy! cool.gif 653.gif
