SAN FRANCISCO – How much Nelly is too much Nelly?
It's a theory that's finally being tested by one San Francisco radio station, which has played St. Louis rapper Nelly's seminal hit "Hot in Herre" since 3 p.m. Friday. (Note: Yes, "Hot in Herre" is the proper spelling.)
Initially, some listeners wondered if the station – KVVF 105.7 –had been experiencing technical difficulties. However, reports now say that the Nelly loop was simply a marketing ploy to signal the station's format change to an English-language contemporary rhythmic brand, Hot 105.7.
The new station has since launched a Facebook page. Its first post? A link to "Hot in Herre" with the caption "You feeling Hot?" Obviously.
