I dunno...if this doesn't prove we're living in weird times, than I don't know what will.
Believe it or not the first ever internet radio station for dogs, DogRadioThailand.com has been launched. Among the criteria in addition to playing music is to know how to bark.
Bark: as in 'rowf-rowf' or 'bow-wow' as the case may be or in this case, what the music calls for!
The content or play list features barking DJ's playing vocals and intrumental music 24 hours per day.
One of the main qualifications as expected, is that the DJ's be gifted in the barking department because according to the station owner, dogs are the main clientele/listeners and DJ's are required to make different sounds to attract and retain their (the dog's) attention like whining, barking, woofing...the usual doggie talk.
There are plans to expand the progamming with the disc jockey communicating to the dogs in Thai and the audience - at least the canine listeners - will be encouranged to respond. This of course begs the question as to the correct usage of barks. A DJ could for example say: "grrrrowwwfff" in which he believes to be telling the dogs to listen to Barry Manilow, when in reality he could be saying "Pee on the carpet!" I mean, go know!
There is no information available regarding whether hourly news reports and weather updates are also included. Wwwww-oooof - and don't ask me what it means. I'm not into dog talk.
