One of Calgary's radio stations is going to only play two minutes of songs -- to try and keep people engaged and get with the times.
"As we look to people’s changing habits and changing attention spans and watch people on their iPod listening to half a song and forwarding on to the next one we sort of came to the conclusion that maybe it was time to rethink why songs are the way they were." The format, called QuickHitz, uses songs provided by Vancouver-based SparkNet Communications.

In the interview, we talk about Warped Tour, their partnership with Cop Block, social media, and an upcoming fourth album.
Yeah, we flipped our van and we waited on the side of the road in -10 degree weather and the cop finally shows up two hours later and he writes me a ticket because and I quote "If you flipped your van, you must've been speeding." So the guy wasn't even there, and he gave me a $400 ticket on the assumption of something. They just generate revenue, they're not even trying to protect...
