Occasionally, I'll be out driving around just around noon, sometimes on a Saturday, and glance at the clock to see it's nearing 12:15 - and almost instinctively reach to change the station to catch the Noon Report.
I miss Mr. Aurandt.
Henley touched on a similar theme in 1995's Garden of Allah (nothing to do with Islam), in which the devil comes to a major west coast city (Gomorrah by the Sea - LA), only to find that he has become obsolete. The video doesn't do the song justice, but Kirk Douglas does have a cool cameo as the devil.
Yeah, it's looking like his work around here has nearly all been done...
"and the fruit is rotten, the serpent's eyes shine,
as he wraps around the vine...
In the Garden of Allah."
