Re: Considering a career in radio? Veteran says "Don't"

Manipulate the cookie cutter corporate web template with content you already saw on tmz, that is hardly web design. Those who can actually build engaging web platforms, get quality innovative graphic design, and have real photoshop skills would rather be valued in another industry than viewed as jus...

Re: MJ on Classic Rock?

The saying you can always bank on is "you don't get hurt by what you don't play". It's not a perfect motto but it makes sense in don't rock the boat. You have an expectation to deliver upon every time someone chooses your station. Even someone who loves MJ, they don't come to your classic rock stati...

Re: CHR Must Bring "Real" Rock Back to Life

Chr must appeal to women 18-34. That's it. Why would they play anything that these women don't want to hear? Rock is a fine format for certain segments of males in the right markets, but if you are not an average music consumer you will be forever frustrated from the offerings on commercial broadcas...

Re: What would you do in my postiion?

The post above is very negative, but it is real, I can't say he is wrong because he isn't. You got one life, if you really want this then you have to do it. Do you do mobile djing? You might need to supplement your income by doing bars and clubs even wedding type gigs while you first take on any ava...

Re: Are OLDIES really bad (dead)?

People like us the passionate music fans don't use radio to here a wide variety of music, they like to do that themselves through streaming a select list that they control or their own collection. When they do come to us, it is for a personality or a promotion we are doing. The masses just want to h...

Re: Are OLDIES really bad (dead)?

Your purpose is to attract the most ears that you can and people want familiar music from radio now more than ever. Radio is not for the passionate music fans, they have their own collection or stream a mix customized to them. I have played music live to hundreds of people and while I had thousands ...

Re: Need Help Switching Format

I was thinking more along the lines of, "Country music, a celebration of ignorance!" You wont have a problem with the music, it doesn't matter if you like it or not. The problem you might have from the above text that you typed is that you look down on your audience for not agreeing with you. If you...

Re: New Carly Rae Jepsen song. The song of the summer?

There are so many better songs out there than this one. Radio is currently giving this song more spins than it deserves. Thankfully the point is coming with this one where programmers are going to have to accept the scores and realize that more exposure is not going to change what the audience is sa...

Re: New Maroon 5 single

Starships was a hit, mind and booty weren't. I don't see why you would play any of them now, much better choice to fill your recurrents and gold. Smart move with Maroon 5 is to keep the spins around 30x a week and wait a bit. Name alone with get it to 10, but that doesn't mean it is a hit. As someon...
