I used to hear Poor Little Allison all the time on channel .... hmmmm ..... maybe the Bridge or Coffee House. Not that I'm complaining but I always thought that was a strange song to have on thier playlist in the absence of others. Was this a minor hit in the US?

Well, SOMEBODY must be programming the song titles and artists into the equipment. Garbage in, garbage out - still true.

Is 'The Bridge' the name of the radio station or channel? I'm guessing what happened is the name of the song was too long, so the last 2 words were left off. And the artist's name is shown below the song name, thereby giving the illusion that they messed up like that.
