Re: Have a happy day!

Scott, I have enjoyed reading your posts and am happy that you're leaving the workforce on your terms. Enjoy retirement, you've earned it! --mrrnb

Re: Why he can't get a job

Hilarious! Reminds me of some incredibly bad musicians I've played with who were the only ones who didn't know they sucked!

I can't have any respect for someone who doesn't know by now that bullshit is one word.

The only entity properly positioning itself is Shannon. I want some of his fairy dust.

Re: KMLE

Both stations in PHX have been gutted. Used to be one of the strongest country markets in the nation. Artists used to love doing concerts there because they made lots of money and drew lots of people. I would ask today's radio "executives": are you "in" or are you "out"? If you're "out", get into an...

Re: Eric Rhoads nails it

Great blog. I would like to be as optimistic as he is. Unfortunately, I'm not. I just look around at the younger generation, knowing that they're the ones who will have to save the industry.

Re: WTF?

It would be only fair that Regional VPs, General Managers, Operations Managers, Sales Managers, etc. reduce their pay by the same amount when comes to then vs. now. The business is completely different now, right? Nobody should be getting wealthy in today's radio business considering how it's on the...

Re: CMA Performances

When pigs fly. There are so many politics involved in those musical performances, you wouldn't believe it. Think of all the artists who wanted a slot and didn't get one. And the ones who DO get slots are given time limits on their songs DOWN TO THE SECOND! And, of course, they have to gussie everyth...
