The growth of the format is reflected on a simple level from "Easy Listening", as it was called in the early part of the decade, to Adult Contemporary in Radio stations realized that Baby Boomers dominated listeners across the country and the world, and the ones that would be successful had to play music that Adults, not teeny-boppers, loved.

Calendar for Year 2020 (United States)
Nor do I think the snake could take offense at the lyrics and think something like: That's all I am to you, something that reminds you of a body part of one of your kind, not as a unique individual with many facets to my serpentine being other than serving as a hyperbolic metaphor for the human penis? Do you even know about the snake's penis?
Am I simply a big penis to you? Do you even know who I am? I am Rocky, a veteran of 15 years in the entertainment business! I think a boa constrictor bites when it feels threatened, so if the years-in-the-entertainment-business snake bit a dancer, he must have felt really scared. He doesn't know his name is Rocky, a name that connotes a tough guy. He's just a snake. He doesn't know what snakes mean to us, and he's not really in the business, is he?
Not from his perspective. He's not getting any coinsas Nicky might put it. He's a confused, frightened creature in an incomprehensible environment, fighting for survival.
And that's our favorite phallic symbol.

While our board and most constituents support providing cell service for residents, visitors and public safety, we know that this proposed cell tower will have a significant negative impact on Brockway Mountain and the Keweenaw Coastal Wildlife Corridor.
We also know, as do our constituents, that the Copper Harbor area can obtain cell service without defacing Brockway Mountain. While it may satisfy your required "check-list," you will note, as we have, that the hundreds of pages of detail conflict with what is summarized by SBA.
Many so-called "facts" are false. The FCC has done a disservice to the Keweenaw Coastal Wildlife Corridor and Brockway Mountain by defining the scope of the EA for narrowly and ignoring the impact of running electricity up bedrock of the Brockway Mountain Drive into a pristine area.
These towers were also positioned as necessary for public safety. However, these towers to date have not been turned on and are doing nothing for public safety even though they have been standing for more than a year. The FCC by now understands that our Community has been trying to both communicate the negative impact of a cell tower on Brockway Mountain and to share alternatives for over two years. Many of these people live and work locally and have better things to do with their time than research technical cell tower issues and document and explain scientific, cultural and historical information when their day jobs end.Condition is Used.
