The Hold DJ

Being put on hold on the telephone is probably one of the most annoying things in the universe (that and the Crazy Frog ringtone). I like to check how long it takes the person on the other end of the line to finish their yoghurt or clip their toenails by counting the number of songs I'm listening to.
I'm always disappointed by the choice of songs. Usually it's something 'appropriate' like Janet Jackson's syrupy "Let's Wait a While", when of course it should be something appropriate like "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit.
Which got me thinking. With the number of callers being put on hold, why not have a Hotline Hold DJ who will take requests? "That was The Whiners with 'In Your Heart'. And this next little number, 'I just called to say I love you' by the one and only Stevie Wonder, was requested by Frank, who's been on hold for 40 minutes. Frank, this one's for you."
