Too, in the 60's (I'm giving away my age here!) there were many record companies. Cryan' Shames on Destination, Buckinghams on USA, Robbs (Milwaukee) on Mercury, Trashmen (Mpls) on Garrett, Crow (Mpls) on Amaret. Many, many labels from Detroit. Messengers (Milwaukee) on USA, I believe. |
Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah, Lake Shore Drive on Ampex.
There's how many labels now?
There's no music or program directors.
There's no competition.
This is some of why we have what we have.
We make station A to flank B and C. We will have one pd, er, brand manager run 4 stations.
... and satellite is not much better.
Now, how about another 8 (commercials) in a row!
Was listening to stations (CHR) with jocks running 25-30 seconds on and on. Horrid.
I remember limits. IE: Calls (7 seconds) CALLS! One thought per break and shut up!
