When I was a young sprout, radio had deejays, they played the same music over and over back then as well. Some less than others. What I remember is we didn't know any alternatives back then and we didn't complain about it. Today, because there's so much music, so many people have discovered so many more forms of entertainment, we believe what we've discovered or think everyone else should see or hear just isn't possible within the normal radio construct. |
The difference today is that we've been turned on to many different styles of music, all the eras of music in our past, we have access to everything and anything now. In 1966? In 1978? In 1988? We didn't have any of those wonderful things we seem to already be taking granted for today.
I'm not a snob, I don't mind commercials, I understand it, the boner pills statement got me as I use them and can attest that if my erection lasts longer than four hours, the last person I'm going to call is another doctor but I digress.
Radio is what is it, it's simply a broadcasting tool, it delivers media to us. What's different today vs. yesterday is that we it doesn't go off the air, we don't get the national anthem played in the morning when it signs on, we have AM, FM, satellite, internet, CDs, cassettes, bluetooth and a host of other inventions and creations to occupy our time
I'm sure there were no people complaining when we went from outdoor toilets to indoor plumbing so I'm not going to complain about what's happening today to radio. Everything transitions.
