I know hate is a strong word, but at least I am using it right by informin g myself of what I hate. I have listened to all morning shows on those local radio stations who's music I like for a number of years. They are the same and they suck after a while, a few laughs are cool but I want to hear music in the morning.
It sucks to hear 5 jackashes talk and goof off and play pranks and whatever in the morning. They almost don't play music anymore. What's worse is that everyone I spoke to at work scapegoats the radio station for this and claims the whole radio thing is stupid.
I'm fine with DJ
's and the local traffic and weather reports, not with 4-6 hour chunks of talk.
Like my local hard rock station used to have Howard Stern on from 2am to 11am pacific standard and it drowe me mad. Stern's okay but not all the time, it is hard enough that my station is OBCESSED with beer and boobs that I can't turn the station on at work without sexually offending the ladies. (I grew up pop/hiphop, it's my style; I'm not about to get into the stereotype of tatoo's, pierces, beer, and titties 'n ass just because I like thrash metal...I'ma keep my combed mohawk b-otch)
About the only time I could hear any real music back-to-back was after 11pm, the last evening show called "The Mikey Show". When Stern was taken off, for 2 weeks it was cool, just music then Mikey move into the morning.
And not just the rock, if I go to the pop station (channel 933), if I go to the hiphop station (Z90), if I go to the country station (US 95.7), if I go to the alt rock station (91X)... I get the same thing. The music itself is dropping off the radar. It's more artist or even community member interviews and free giveaways, cruises and prizes not related to music, etc. Radio Stations won't even take requests unless there is money advertising it beforehand, i.e. popular songs get first shot.
I wish my pop station were like the rock station that they would play older pop songs; hell, to these folks old is 3 years and old school is 5+! So if I ask for Mariah Carey or Janet Jacson they be like, 'we don't play that stuff'.
Psh, I tell you what, there ain't no number o'songs that I'ma buy that'd make them play ma song.
she-ot, I wish morning shows would go away...
I can't afford satellite radio besides I like a DJ
to be there and tell us the next song, I like the feeling that someone is behind the wheel.
