I’m so happy that fun. is getting all of this recognition because they were seriously coasting on the charts all year long. I work at DISH with people young and old who love their music, so I think a few award wins will be fitting for the band. Normally, I work on Sundays so I plan to bring my phone charger with me that day. I can stream live TV with DISH Anywhere on my phone, so although I won’t be home that night, I’m not going to miss any of the fun.’s well-deserved recognition.
