like failing to find maple syrup in vermont

Lame: Driving all the way through West Virginia, Morgantown to Charleston, and on to appalachian Kentucky, through Morehead, scanning the radio dial repeatedly, looking for bluegrass music ... and failing to find any, all day.

Kentucky redeemed itself the following evening. Driving from Lexington to Louisville, I caught Red Barn Radio's best of 2003 show, on Central Kentucky Public Radio, and it was good. But that's not in Appalachia. I'd been expecting some bluegrass on Morehead State Public Radio, and got none either on the drive in or the drive out three days later. Looking at their schedule online now, I see that all their weekday bluegrass is after 8pm.
