A "new" country station, BOB 95 FM, appeared in Fargo a few months ago, and they've gone over the top to draw attention to themselves...I suspect it's because there's nothing remarkable or impressive about their programming. Honestly, it is indistinguishable from the other country stations in town -- I've been forced to listen to 'em at work -- and they need to force people to believe they're the coolest generic-country-top-40 station. One of their more creative advertising attempts is a rip-off -- sorry -- parody of the manah-manah song, complete with country-themed muppets (you can even get tattoos of their muppetty madness). For the uninformed non-fishermen among you, those red-and-white round things are "bobbers", a float that keeps the bait off the bottom and shows when you've got the fish on your hook. "Bobbers" ibid "BOB", the radio station's name, which, no doubt, was chosen to make it sound more folksy, like that guy Bob who lives two houses over and always invites you to his barbecue and snowblows the entire block's sidewalk just because he's got nothing better to do than be nice.
