Has anyone else noticed the degradation of radio programming over the last 10 years? Radio stations are becoming more formatted, and playing from the same play lists. Where has the variety gone? For example. I listen to a lot of country. There is only one station here in Chicago, and they play THE SAME SONGS OVER AND OVER. Whoever is popular, that's all they play. I understand that Clear Channel has purchased about 3,000 stations in the US. They pretty much control what gets played in every market. But it gets worse...they are also concert promoters...so guess what? If your touring and you don't use Clear Channel to promote the tour, then you don't get air time. Ugh. I could go on and on with examples, but I don't want to make this message to long. So what can we do to get control of the stations back to the DJ's? (Oh yeah...how about that voice tracking?...the same programming sent to every city except someone in LA gives different call letter info to make it seem like a local station.) Sorry for the random thoughts here....just trying to get a discussion going about how crappy radio is now.
