This may qualify as an OSHA violation.  You should file a complaint and seek redress.

Yesterday someone backed a truck into a utility pole and took out fiber to most of the town, ergo Spotify was unavailable to our salesman. After an hour of silence it dawned on me to check and sure enough, I could hit the bluetooth system from my phone, so I put RadioParadise on for the rest of the day. It went over well except there was a Fever Ray song that raised eyebrows. But alas, the internet is back on and I just heard Wagon Wheel.

I still have an old Tascam Portastudio like that - it still works but I don't have a regular cassette deck to copy the songs to anymore and I haven't invested in any digital transfer gadgetry.

At least you can do that. I diligently put a lot of my past digital life onto Zips and now I can't find anyone to read them. I would ask you, but I can't decipher my disk-naming scheme so I don't know if the disks I have are the ones I care about. And by "care about," I mean "mildly curious about." So whatever's there, except for nostalgia, I would be better off re-building or forgetting about. Hell, half of it's probably in (Aldus) Freehand™

You are not, I assure you. It's not a bad song, I'm sure the band would be fine too. I think ptooey might have mentioned it and I was in the same place as you... until I looked it up and I thought "oh, sure, that song" and now I do hear it everywhere. It's like that Mariah Carey Christmas song; I thought that was a cover of something from the 50s... it's just so pop-perfect it feels like I've known it forever... and maybe we did: Bob Dylan wrote the chorus in the 70s. Did it get used somewhere else in another song? I dunno.

Nope. Also; where's the fiddle player?
 
I've never heard it before either. I only play music I want to hear and that one doesn't come up in any rotation the stations I listen to play. Now after listening to about 20 seconds or so I too am a member of the No Wagon Wheel club. {#Stop}

As you could imagine, it's a popular song in Appalachia and particularly around Raleigh.  I don't think I'd heard it until I moved to NC.  I remember playing an open mic night years ago at a local bar and while people were signing in the guy running it was explaining about how many songs and how long people could play and then added: "Oh, and no fucking 'Wagon Wheel'".  First time I had heard that phrase.


I’ve sat around many a campfire with musicians hanging out. Inevitably, someone will kick into “Wagon Wheel.” Everybody knows how to sing it, or learns quickly, plus it is easy an easy song for harmonizing. I don’t recall hearing it on the radio though. Let’s see if RP will put it on the rotation
