"Gave her the song on a Friday and she got canned the next Tuesday," says Superdoo singer Christopher Dale of "Hilary," his musical tribute to the recently fired 91X DJ (sample lyric: "Yeah, you're the DJ that gets me down the freeway / Now everything is all right, I get to where I'm going and I'm not uptight").
"She was planning on playing it on the air," says Dale. "Who knows what would have happened? Might have been difficult to fire someone who has a song about them in rotation." Posted on Superdoo's MySpace page as well as on one headlined "Radio Needs Hilary," the track has been played over 650 times. Superdoo played the song live for the first time at their debut gig in mid-July at the Tiki Bar. Dale says the audience sang along "with gusto." According to Dale, 91X has been playing Superdoo's "Waitress," but he's leery that the "Hilary" singalongs could affect the station's willingness to play it.
"It's hard to say what the impact will be," says Dale. "We haven't been using it to trash 91X but rather celebrate Hilary, and we hope it will help her in her job search."
