Best Radio Rivalry 

KRBZ 96.5 vs. KMXV 93.3

They say you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, but the folks at KRBZ 96.5 (the Buzz) have no interest in sweet-talking their rivals at KMXV (Mix) 93.3. And if honeybees die after one sting, the Buzz must be a wasp. Consider the alt-rock renegade's relentless efforts to stick it to their pop-radio adversaries at Mix: Among the Buzz's most memorable stunts has been a platoon of Buzz buddies disrupting a Mix-sponsored Fountains of Wayne show by marching through America's Pub wearing "Stacy's Mom Has a Penis" shirts, and a plane hired to fly over the Mix-sponsored Red White and Boom concert with a banner that read "R Milkshake Is Betta 'n Urs: 96.5 the Buzz." For its part, 93.3 largely refused to acknowledge its counterpart, in accordance with Clear Channel policies against public displays of a sense of humor.
