Re: Another Round Of Layoffs At Clear Channel

Randy Hill - Thank you for saving me the effort to smack down danno - the board geyser of grief. CC is absolutely following Willard's plans. And word is that the layoffs have been plannred for a long time but Willard's CC buddies didn't want to embarrass him during the election. Now that's branded a...

Re: Jobs

Thanks for the advice, Danno. I did choose wisely and my guy won. When ACA takes full effect in 2014 every reliable (key word - reliable) source says it will save money. It's nearly the same as the plan Willard put in place in Mass that has saved lives and covered something like 98% of all residents...

Re: Jobs

I support universal health care. It doesn't matter what you call it - Obamacare/Romneycare - it just matters that it gets done. When they mega-zillionaire guy who owns Papa Johns Pizza whines that the ACA will raise pizza prices by 11 cents, we see what we're dealing with. Business owners NEVER want...

Re: Lots of fans on AA boards...

"For the record I have been on multiple major market stations and none of you have. "

jj - while I'm not a fan of your nasty-grams, I hope you're referring only to the folks in this thread, correct? You really don't want to get into a "mine is bigger than yours" thing ....

Re: Note to AA re: Alan Burns

Ronnie - Not that it matters when any of us "joined" but I'm glad you backed me up on the date thing. I am not getting senile - altho a career in broadcasting can give one a head start. I won't argue your take on Mr. Burns. I will say I don't understand how revenue or any of that has a bearing on an...

Re: Note to AA re: Alan Burns

I hate to tell ya, egg -- but these dates were reset during an AA make-over. I hate to tell you how far I go back on AA. Waaaaaay back to the first days. But if that's the yardstick you care to use, so be it. And it has nothing to do with anything. Ain't it grand how we both seem to have time to spa...

Re: Note to radio: Change or be changed

pbergin - honestly not being argumentative but there's nothing new in the article, is there? You and I have heard this and said this a million times and yet I can easily find stations in every market doing "caller number 9 wins" stuff or "your more music station" hoakum. Pretty soon an industry reac...

Re: Note to AA re: Alan Burns

egg - yeah, that's me ... trying to "run everything." As a customer/user of AA, I can feel free to comment on anything I'd like. AA can feel free to do what they'd like, including blocking or deleting. I go back with AA many years - from the beginning - and this "All Alan Burns All of the Time" fron...

Re: Situations Wanted Has Become AA's Most Entertaining Sect

Drakea83 - Exactly. I have to hold myself back from contacting some of these guys with suggestions. Most of the ads are trying to be different or clever and they're neither. You really need to be a salesperson: as succinctly as possible, tell the PD your features and the benefits those features will...

Re: Note to AA re: Alan Burns

I realize I'm just talking to myself at this point, but ... I'm grateful for another week of being exposed to the latest findings from Alan Burns on the front page of AA. Honestly - why pay for it when it's all right here? I was just honest - now I'll be honest AND serious. Time to change the splash...
