Saw that WLUP in Chicago is having a "contest" to see who gets to host mornings. Really? A contest? How degrading to the "talent." The station knows what the shows sound like and what they can do, the contest crap is a gimmick to make listeners think they have input on what goes on the air. The Liz Wilde woman actually voice-tracked her whole week tryout too! HAHA, good Lord, I am so glad I bailed out of the radio titanic. Look what's left out there, just a bunch of desperate hacks willing to dance like monkeys for peanuts. No more ballsy voices pushing the envelope or challenging mainstream thought anymore.

You never left radio, JJ. You're still here. Radio, on the other hand, had no further use for you...and that's OK. I haven't been on the air for a little over a year now, (my choice) but I'll probably jump back in part time 'cause I love me all the great schwag I generate!

Can Turkeys Fly?

Post by gbarn » Mon Nov 23, 2015 7:59 pm

Remember the outrageously funny Thanksgiving version of WKRP when they discovered turkeys couldn't fly? A contemporary version of the segment would be to determine if Wall Street Radio turkeys could fly! Sorry, it must be time of year...

Still here, still rocking. Spread between two radio stations and a newspaper (and tail end of college and Army reserves). But doing well.

You definitely have some writing skills ... unlike some former PD's I've worked for .. but how many times have we heard this ... Radio is Dead ? I've heard it my entire career and i always thought it was just a competitive tool that old Jocks would say so you would lose heart and they would take your job .... :)

It's heartbreaking to see the inevitable happen right before our eyes and ears, not so much the death of radio, but its vibrancy weakening mostly due to a disconnection of service to local communities.

Great radio still exists for me, however. It echoes in my head every day through the memories I've filed away from all the way back to childhood, which is when I became forever attached to it.

I usually love the media contests. The radio contests have served a major role of employees' performance appraisal and actually helps the employees to work even better. I would desire to have more updates on the radio contests in this platform so that I can know more on who are the best radio personalities.Admission Essays Writing Aid

Wow. cool post. I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though. super smash flash 2 :roll:
