A new FM radio station was launched in SF when I lived in the area. Part of a national development, the station was called Alice, KLLC. They played what I guess would be called light adult contemporary music.
I liked KLLC, especially the morning show, with Sarah and Vinnie. That abruptly ended one morning; Vinnie was gone.
Anyway, a song that received a lot of air time was ‘Cornflake Girl’ by Tori Amos. The song came out in 1993. I retired from the USAF in 1995 and started working for an startup coronary angioplasty company. Hearing this song one day at work, I asked several twenty-somethings that I worked with, “What’s a cornflake girl?” I didn’t know. They snickered and didn’t answer.
I didn’t know what a raisin girl was, either, but didn’t bother asking that trio of information, the only young folks that I worked with or knew at that time. This was before Google and the net as we know it today. Looking it up or finding the answer was difficult. It pissed me off that they wouldn’t answer. Oh, well.
Well, now I know.
