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...

Re: New Maroon 5 single

One more thing, as we know just because WE the radio people take a song to #15 or so the mediabase radio spins chart, that doesn't mean a song is a hit. Hell GDFR was #10 and it is questionable if that song was a hit, yeah I know there are stories in some markets, but other markets they couldn't eve...

Re: New Maroon 5 single

57 on the itunes dl chart......well maybe it just takes awhile to get into this one. :) I think it sounds good, the immature lyrics are dwarfed by a good beat and strong melody, Adam's voice is very unique and recognizable in the current day biggest band on the planet, tho I don't know what the othe...

Re: New Maroon 5 single

So take the instrumental and the regular song and mute down the mother part and play the instrumental over it. You can do the whole song in audition in about 15 minutes give or take.

Re: New Hard Rock on Active Rock is Dead, Why?

I love to look at the old arbitron ratings, I have a site where I can look back at the 80s 90s ratings for all the markets and it breaks down by demo and sex. Back in the 80s rock radio had ownership of all male demos. Some markets chr did well with men, but rock really dominated, sometimes 3 statio...

Re: Katy Perry Alternative - "Walking On Air" or "Internatio

Walking on Air is not a #1 song, but it is top 10 material and no doubt will get a better response than "how we do".

Hey what do I know, I only screamed that Disclosure Latch was a hit more than a year ago and did the same with Clean Bandit back in January. :)

Re: I can't think of a worse forum to spam.

I love being on the air, and I get to do it, my childhood dream, once or twice a week on the weekends. During the week I have a real job where I'm valued and paid a fair amount for work. I love following radio, in a comical sense, these idiots who can't hear hits just now really spinning talk dirty ...

Re: People who approach Radio with Passion VS those who don'

I seen this early on as an intern in high school. I have the bug, I love radio and always will so doing it part time works for me. I sometimes think about the fact that I could put on a much better product than most of what I hear in most markets, but then I see how mediocrity is rewarded and statio...
