We're a radio station in Jacksonville, FL. You should like us and you should listen. Here's why:
� YOU LIKE MUSIC RIGHT? WE HAVE THAT. WE LIKE MUSIC FROM THE 80�S AND 90�S, PLUS A LITTLE OLDER AND A LITTLE NEWER. ONLY THE FUN STUFF THOUGH, WE DON�T GET SLEEPY.
� DO YOU LIKE REPEATS? NAH. WE DON�T EITHER. YOU WON�T EVER HEAR THE SAME SONG IN THE SAME DAY. AIN�T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT.
� WE DON�T TAKE REQUESTS. JUST TOO MANY FREAKS OUT THERE WITH BAD TASTE AND FREAKS WITH BAD TASTE TEND TO CALL RADIO STATIONS A LOT. TRUST US, IT�S BETTER THIS WAY.
� WHO LIKES USLESS CHATTER?! NOBODY. WE DON�T HAVE DJS. WE PREFER TO PLAY MORE MUSIC.
� WE GO COMMERCIAL FREE EVERY WEEKDAY FROM 7:15A TO 8:15A AND FROM 2:15P TO 3:15P. WEEKENDS FROM 11:15A TO 12:45P. JUST BECAUSE.
This is such a scumbag move that we're actually surprised that it was happening. Back in May, a report came out that rich people were hiring DISABLED PEOPLE to escort them around Disney World and Disneyland, because disabled people are allowed to skip the lines for rides.

Apparently it was BIG BUSINESS for rich families to HIRE disabled people to take them around the park. There's a company called Dream Tours Florida that offers the service. The rates for a handicapped tour guide are $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day. That doesn't include the price of tickets to Disney World.
“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours.”
“You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge, this is how the 1 percent does Disney.”
Passing around the slimeball guide service’s phone number recently became a popular among Manhattan’s private-school set during spring break. The service asks who referred you before they even take your call.
“It’s insider knowledge that very few have and share carefully,” said social anthropologist Dr. Wednesday Martin, who caught wind of the underground network while doing research for her upcoming book “Primates of Park Avenue.” “Who wants a speed pass when you can use your black-market handicapped guide to circumvent the lines all together?” she said.

So, Disney announced they're officially changing their policies. As of October 9th, there won't be a special pass for disabled people and their friends to skip lines anymore.
Disabled people WILL get a pass, but it will work like a FastPass. They'll get a time to report back to the ride where they can skip the line and they can only get one of those passes at a time. Also, the disabled person in your group HAS to ride the ride.
Once again, thank you to the horrible people who ruin it for everyone else. Sadly, in this case however, they ruined it for the disabled people who really deserved better.
