The Industy

If you look in the Jobs section you will see a post (legit or not) about one of many ways you get screwed in this business. If you pay for your own move that should be red flag #1. If they fuck you when you arrive perhaps you should have sent a current pic :-) But really, I hear people in radio say ...

Re: This just in: LOCAL RADIO DEAD!!!

Those big time executives and corporate programmers at Cumulus and CC really do think it's better to pipe in their so called PRIME talent. They really do believe these talents are the shit because THEY picked them!. The fact is these talents are just mediocre at best. Most of the voice trackers will...

Re: Where is the money?

Every situation is different. Afternoons in a med market might pay 60K. Across the street in same market and format afternoons might pay 25K. Just depends on many variables. Having said that generally talk and music format salaries have been steadily going down because of deregulation and stations b...

Re: Cumulus Country

Strict playlists e-mailed by Jan Jeffries to all the stations on Monday. These are the songs YOU WILL PLAY. No discussion. The reason for this is #1 Jan's HUGE Ego and secondly...his INSECURITY. If he wasn't a dictator some talented PD might show him up. God forbid Jan to give total control to a pd ...

Re: Cumulus Country

Gooky...Envy? Not really. I worked at Cumulus. I know what it is to work with the likes of Jan Jefferies and his cronies. They have blown out some very good programmers and on-air talent. It's a sweatshop with below average wages. I have seen salespeople robbed of their commissions and this is just ...

Re: More for the Randy Michaels fan club

Oh my :o I'd have to agree with halltalk on this one... Dude you hit it on the spot with your post. The only thing I can add is Unfortunately randy is the 5 headed monster. Cut off one head 5 others grow back. There will be many more randies waiting in the shadowy murky halls of radio.. One last thi...

Re: Radio has become so homogenized

Yeah I hear ya. Nothing worse than hearing 25 year olds doing oldies. But the GMs are getting younger too. So they hire 20somethings. These gms and pds today if they heard real talent they wouldn't recognize it and pass it off as OLD. Then there's the pay. Salaries have dropped like a bad transmissi...

Re: Radio has become so homogenized

I thinks its funny when these clueless gms put one guy in afternoons live then have him voice track the sister station also in afternoon drive but give him a different name. Like people can't figure that lame shit out. Then there's the poor morning man who has to voice track two sister stations in t...

Re: SOLO Female Morning Show hosts!?!

I hope not too many. Either they are boring or just plain irritating and filthy. Just like the camera likes females the mic likes males. Males have more creativity and variety to what they do. #0 years ago the few women on the air had nice voices and WARM. Most women have lost the art of Warmth. Jus...
