Former BBC WILTSHIRE host GRAHAM MACK is keeping busy with fill-ins and with his writing, the latest example being his thoughts on iTUNES RADIO at his blog, grahammack.wordpress.com.
MACK's take is that "radio needs to be about opinions and debate because that’s what APPLE, PANDORA, SPOTIFY and the others can’t do. Unfortunately for the last twenty years at least, most commercial radio stations have been doing their best to remove the human element, the thing that makes them unique. They’ve become a juke box of highly researched songs interspersed with slogans like 'More music, less talk.' 'More music less talk' makes no sense. 'Talk' is the only thing that makes a station unique." Read MACK's take by clicking here.
In addition, MACK guested along with CUMULUS' MIKE MCVAY on the latest edition of LARRY GIFFORD and DEB SLATER's "RADIO STUFF" podcast. Hear the episode by clicking here.
