JUNE 16, 2008 DORKY RADIO DJS CONTINUE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR "BOULEVARD OF BROKEN SONGS" That's so 2005. It's been nearly 4 years since I premiered my little novelty Green Day/Oasis/etc mix on the LIVE 105 Sixx Mixx, and wow, does that make me feel old. The track ended up on quite a few radio stations around the world, but scout's honor, I never sent it to anybody myself, and I'm still a bit confused as to how it all happened. So it's understandable that radio DJs weren't entirely sure how to credit the thing, since it was probably just their cousin's hairdresser who e-mailed it to them. But some of them took this absence of knowledge and ran with it, deciding that they could just take credit for it themselves. Most notably, Q101 Chicago's morning dipshit Mancow and/or his cronies made a big deal about how they created the mashup a few years back, causing a big feud with other Q101 DJs who apparently tried to get the truth out there (read about that here, scroll down to February). Fun times. Even though the hype over "Boulevard" has been pretty dead for a while now,, I guess word just reached Kentucky, where a local jock has decided his listeners will think he's more awesome if he told them he made it. This was sent to me by a guy calling himself "Mash1up1town," and that's alls I know, so I'm not sure what station this is or anything; if anyone out there recognizes Hammer, drop a line. Not that I'm annoyed; far from it, it's all pretty hilarious, and it's not like they're taking any money out of my pocket or anything.
