Larry Lujack died...

...on Christmas Day at age 73. In his New York Times obit the former Chicago disc jockey said:

“I did rock ’n’ roll radio for 30 years. It got to the point if I had to play ‘Surfin’ U.S.A.’ one more time, I was gonna puke.”

And I've been thinking something similar for some time now. How on earth can the Beach Boys still tour? I mean, if you're as sick as I am of hearing "California Girls," just imagine how sick they must be of playing it? Night after night and year after year! And that's all their fans want to hear. It must be like some Twilight Zone version of hell.

I suppose they like the money and the attention. It sure beats wearing a blue vest at Walmart or putting fries in a bag at McD.
