Re: Why is alternative rock radio so unlistenable as of late?

LOL The history of "alternative" music/formats starts with relevance with KROQ, the rock of the 80s. The format was never a "guitar rock" one, it played new wave music after punk and it really was that new wave music that made it famous. It was lots of UK and others imports and it was a new sound th...

Re: Does anyone feel like classic rock radio stations play most of the same music?

Yeah, Classic Rock radio may be killing it recently in the ratings but I think that every Classic Rock radio station should program Emily's Spotify playlist. Who cares what a couple hundred million people expect to hear when they turn on the Classic Rock radio station, Emily matters more and they sh...

Re: Wake Up!!!! Hot Ac and CHR

9-28-16-Not a single spin from any USA radio station. 5-19-17- #1 song at hot ac. They can get their music anywhere, but when you develop a track record of always playing their favorite songs first, that they need you in their life because you set the trends, you play the future hits before any othe...

Re: Wake Up!!!! Hot Ac and CHR

Ha ha ha. #neverwrongalwaysright I can't be the only one, I mean there were a handful in the 80s with the gift that allowed top 40 to be appointment listening. More than ever, with so many sources for music, a chr radio station should have the perception that you come here to know what's next and if...

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

Obama is no longer our president but you are correct as we seen with James Holmes, his facebook page was a digital shrine to Obama, and this Democrat killed over 10 people in a Colorado theater.

Re: Why even have jocks???

The skill is to be able to promote station events and contests, pop culture bits about your audiences favorite celebs and even some lifestyle breaks but to do them quick, to the point, over the song intros to keep things moving and thus making everyone who uses your station, your target audience, ha...
