  2. Its fine, somehow insisting that ‘Radio Undefined’ defines onsug seems like a cop-out, anyhow. Let’s define it somewhat!

  3. Originally the slogan was a reference to the popular advertising word “redefined”, such as for a car ad – “Luxury Redefined”. So it was just a kind of general thing, showing that it was radio that does not conform to traditional ideas of radio. Then, last week, my view of it as being LITERALLY undefined was just me exaggerating how hard it has been to define. But in the end, I think it’s best to let go of that slogan altogether.
