This is a cute, funny story about how mystifying new technology can be. A few years back, new cars were just starting to arrive with car radios that could show song and artist identification – called RDS. At the time, I was managing a group of radio stations, including one on Martha’s Vineyard (WMVY) and we were just getting the RDS system going at the station.
And an artist named Mindy Smith was out with a song called “Come to Jesus”.
So a local listener on the island climbed into her new car one day and looked at her radio to see those words, “Come to Jesus” scrolling across the screen of her car radio. And she thought her time had come.
