Re: Classic Rock does not equal Charlie Daniels

Did the local Rock station play it new? Did it have legs for a few years? Is it an iconic song that fits your listener? It's ON your station.

Re: Were we fed a line of Crap?

This is all precisely why I NEVER use prep. All of the canned crap in the prep services has already been on 27 different entertainment shows by the time I've hit the air at 10am. I relate at the level of the listener with my real life BS. Shit that happens every day and... whatdayaknow... I get GREA...

I'm glad radio is dying, it deserves to. Its death is self-inflicted, here's hoping listenership continues to plummet to record breaking lows that relegate mainstream radio to complete irrelevancy. Bitter much? Radio will be fine when it finds it's way back to it's purpose. Communicating locally ab...

Re: Return an email to an applicant.

After 30 years in this business. I have determined that many PDs/OMs are simply scared to start a conversation with someone who may think they've got a shot when there's really no shot. These can get difficult to end. In my days as a manager, I've learned it's best to only discuss a position with th...
