Re: Radio Today and in the Past

Wow! I feel as if I have strolled into to a "Remember When" wing of the Broadcasters Hall of Fame! Kudos to thelegend for creating this timely, relevant topic and to all who have replied thus far. Being a "lifer" myself and having "lived" on-the air in nine markets including two majors and seeing th...

Re: Where is the New, Young Talent?

jjenkins makes a valid point. The industry as a whole has been on a downward slide for at least 10 years now (which now is 2001--where does the time go?) The problem newbie’s, wannabes and old "geezers" and anyone else still left in the industry have with radio is that, for some odd reason, it is in...

Re: Where is the New, Young Talent?

Don't be nieve??? How naive! Even though radio is an aural medium, communicating clearly (i.e., correct spelling, good grammar and proper sentence structure) goes a long way. As far as young talent being fearful of ownership--save your breath! Station owners were always rulers of their "kingdoms." A...

Re: Where is the New, Young Talent?

It used to be land a weekend or overnight shift as your first gig (yes, also be willing to clean the johns too) and you were on your way to a drive time shift with-in usually 3 months. Because in tat amount of time the drive time person found another gig in a bigger paying market. But the truth is, ...

Re: Job Opportunities You Are Happy You Lost out on

Danno, thanks for the chuckle! I must say presently, getting on air anywhere again, even in a loosing situation would be better than nothing. Well, I was employed in at least two start ups that are no longer around. Unfortunately, I was still at those start ups when the plug was pulled. And at the o...

Re: Ted Williams?

Maybe the time is ripe for a reality show about radio personalities and/or voices. Can you imagine cameras around radio people sharing the same digs? Mr. Williams better be careful as he is under a microscope of Hubble proportions. Still it would be interesting to see that if his old habits return h...

Re: Traffic Talk Scam

Not a scam per se but certainly morally wrong, especially during a period of so many seasoned pros on the beach. People will always want to do what they have a passion for, that is true. I could remember assembling a weekend part time staff that was just awesome. An RCA A&R guy, a flight attendant,,...

Re: Ted Williams?

Danno hit home about being treated for doing bad. The other comments (and future comments coming) have caused some soul searching, which is always good. And how many of us would do something (almost anything) to get a gig like that if we were in Ted's shoes? In fact, I know of one such person who ac...
