"Que-sera, que-sera"

I'm realizing how segregated pop radio in Atlanta was back in the 80s. I'm pretty sure an "urban" act like LL&CJ was relegated to V103 (well, relegated to Atlanta's highest rated station, how sad) while similar sounds from Debbie Gibson and Expose got airplay on 3 or 4 "white" stations (note: the stations themselves weren't actually white, but the audiences were heavily Caucasian, and as everyone knows, only Caucasians spend money on things and thus only Caucasian audiences have value to advertisers--or so the logic seemed to go, it was the 80s).
