The KANSAS CITY ROYALS are about to make their first playoff appearance in almost 30 years. GREAT PLAINS MEDIA Top 40 KKSW (105.9 KISS FM)/LAWRENCE-TOPEKA is honoring the occasion by playing the massive hit from early this year, LORDE's "Royals," every hour at the top of the hour, leading up to tonight's Wildcard game with the OAKLAND ATHLETICS.
It was seeing a picture of the ROYALS' former third baseman, GEORGE BRETT, autographing baseballs which provided the inspiration to the singer. She and the Hall Of Famer eventually met in APRIL of this year. To see a picture of that meeting and also the image that inspired her to write the song, click here.
