Re: New Q station in Chi town? Who is in charge?

Re: Radio's Last Contest - Radio's Last Employee

Yes, I would consider those people greedy. Being able to command a salary does not mean it's reasonable for your services. This is the beautiful trap of Capitalism.

Re: the follow up...

well it is a crap shoot, and yes spending time and money and getting nowhere is very frustrating. i am not naive, but there has to be some kind of end point where you just give it a smoldering screw it. staying positive while the door is slammed in your face takes guts. sorry, if some of my posts go...

Based on your posts here, I think attitude is a much bigger problem than any talent issues or the silence of PDs. I wish you luck but I'm guessing you're in for a rough ride no matter what you do. attitude!? LOL...im sure you had no struggles starting out because you're perfect, and weren't subject...

Re: the follow up...

i know DANNO.i'm starting to realize that this radio thing might just be a crock of shit. i feel like i am just pissing in the wind when i send out these resumes/cover letters because it's all a waste of time, and maybe i don't realize that i suck, but at least i would like a PD to respond and say "...
