I'm not a Communist-thanks. And God forbid I utter a negative word about Capitalism. I don't believe there is a perfect system either, so you're right, I don't have a solution in my mind for a replacement system. I, also, didnt ask for a replacement system. I was merely pointing out the phenomenon of everyone thinking they are the ones who will strike it rich. In the 1980's about 100,000 people a year would become millionaires every year. That's 100,000 out of the entire national population, and a time when the economy was good. For the most part, the rich stay rich & the poor stay poor. Maybe calling it a 'trap' was a poor choice of words, but is the way of things. I'm sorry if I threatened your own 'hopes' at becoming rich, but it's not going to happen in this biz- and that's just the way it is.

And I could only 'be a prisoner of my own mind' if I kept the delusion that this industry would turn around. It IS Capitalism & greed that has caused the consolodation of this industry, and the current state of it. I suggest that it is you who 'read a book.'

And I won't be taking my radio skills anywhere but the occasional trip down memory lane- 'cause I'm out, and for good.

Those celebs weren't born rich, I know. They profited from the one, and only, thing in this universe that's real. LUCK. Just dumb luck. And it's not 'bitching' to say so- it's observation. There are likely hundreds of thousands of other people with their exact same skills, but there's only enough room & luck for a few at the top. Those other talented people I speak of will wait tables instead, and their real talents will go unused. I don't consider this sad, or unfair btw- it's just the way it is.

Don't assume I'm feeling sorry for anyone, including myself. I simply call 'em as I see 'em. There are too many people for everyone to 'make it,' or even be seen, regardless of talent or skill. I'm at peace with that reality, I'm sorry if you're not.

You're right about one thing: 'Hard work pays off"- but only if LUCK will have you. "Luck favors the prepared."

Chatter gets louder about more radio industry cut backs. So, you think your number may be called this time, you see yourself at a crossroads? Remember, you never get anywhere without "breaking on thru" to the other side a few times in your life. Here's to smooth sailing in 2012. Happy New Year!

Is radio too big to fail, or too weak to survive? Question arises following a trip 'cross country searching the dial for something interesting.. It was a heart-breaking relief when the journey ended.
