I’ll try to find you..left of the dial

Story has it that a girl from this band inspired the Replacement’s song Left of the Dial! Let’s Active were a popular college radio band from the mid-80s to early 90s and Paul Westerberg had fallen in love with one of the members while on tour. Left of the Dial was written because radios, at the time, had all of their college radio stations located ‘left of the dial’ and that’s where her band would be playing.
I love the stories of my favorite songs!
I wish I knew which member it was, and if she ever heard the song! I hope she did! It’d make the cutest love story!

Does anyone else think the lead singer of the View sounds like the lead singer of Let’s Active??
