Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

How much worse can it get?? I'm like a broken record on here. Bring back the PERSONALITY (and I don't mean jocks that direct you to the station website every break) I am talking about ENTERTAINING, unpredictable, COMPELLING people that have the MAGIC to attract a listener and become the listener's f...

Re: What's happening and what should we do about it?

B.T.W. Didn't want to sound like a total Ahole in earlier post about newbies in big places in the biz that may have the talent but not yet the experience. They are just taking gigs offered to them, but geez isn't there a bunch of talented peeps on the beach?

Re: Rush Limbaugh Shame on you!

This is just ONE in a string of hateful comments from this moron. First off, he should be doing prison time for that little prescription incident. Secondly, how bout "Something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran that he doesn't deserve the award" that was Rush commenting o...

Rush Limbaugh Shame on you!

Nice move Rush! Your comments about giving to the Red Cross for the Haitian relief fund was waaaaay outta bounds. Act or no act, this man needs to be removed from the air. How could ANYONE make a political tie in with such a horrid situation especially when the man behind the 'golden mic' is making ...

Re: What's happening and what should we do about it?

As long as corporations are running the show...forget about it. They are ALL about the BOTTOM line and don't want to pay talent, unless your name is Ryan Seacrest or a handful of others. Now the PPM is putting the killer grip on talent because PD's are reading it all wrong. They are associating all ...

Re: In a world without Clear Channel

It would be good for radio, records and good for the FUTURE of the biz. Competition is ALWAYS good and you'd see $$ come back into the biz.

Re: ***THE FREE FOR ALL***

Just thought I'd share a little something with you. Today a guy came over to the house to do some work and I told him that I used to do radio. He said "why has radio become so boring? I used to listen and hear what the personalities had to say, then they'd play a great song. Now I hear very little p...

Re: Laugh or Cry?

Nice thought Adam. There will be more tears than laughter if radio DOESN'T start paying attention to other things besides the BOTTOM LINE. Not to date myself BUT when 8 tracks came out people were saying "that's it for radio" (or so I heard) and what happened....radio prevailed BUT that was when it ...

Could we just COOL it with the Christmas music!

Nothing like driving on the 134 freeway on a beautiful L.A. night and listening to 'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas' on November 19th! I'm waiting for the first station to go all Christmas all year round with Santa Claus in Am drive and Elves handling the other shifts....all V/T'd from the North P...

NOTHING matters these days EXCEPT the bottom line.
