Re: I can't think of a worse forum to spam.

I love being on the air, and I get to do it, my childhood dream, once or twice a week on the weekends. During the week I have a real job where I'm valued and paid a fair amount for work.

Re: KISS FM

A medium that people use to escape life for a moment or to either lift them up or relax them, to make them feel good and happy is programmed by fear through people afraid to lose their jobs. That just doesn't work. I wonder how amazing radio could be if some of the most brilliant minds and talents i...

Re: KISS FM

Some great opportunities to take out the leading the stations in key demographics due to their own laziness and extreme cost cutting in quite a few markets, some major.

thoughts on "and we danced"?

He's on fire, it's a fun song if not completely corny, and it's not on his cd so by playing it, spiking it, you can really gain some response and passion from your core audience here. Not saying play this a rotation, but a reaction record, you know things you play when you don't program from fear an...

Re: Have you checked out new artist Justine Blazer

lol, I wonder sometimes who understands and can utilize the new media that is worthless unless you can create true personal relationships through it, the Amish or radio execs. The encouragement of mindless links and the total absence of online initiatives coming from radio makes me thing the former....
