I’m a community radio listener but over the weekend my son flicked past a commercial station where I heard them say that “Captain Underpants” is giving away tickets to an upcoming Canberra production of War of the Worlds.
Now, I’m not a prude and I like a bit of fun as much as the next bloke, but really, do we have to sink to “Captain Underpants” to promote the superb music of Jeff Wayne and the classic Orson Welles story?
It’s trite and juvenile and so typical of what’s heard on commercial radio in Canberra. Please, if you can’t think of anything more creative than “Captain Underpants”, just give the tickets away to the first caller. We don’t also need the nauseating visuals of “Captain Underpants” inflicted on us.
