The last station I listened regularly to the radio was when KHITS was on. They had great jocks and production. WLS-FM has no musical flow, the jocks might be good but overall are OLD and don't reflect that period of my life. Chicago radio died for me when Big City radio folded. Why bother listening when there are tons of other options, no personality on the radio anymore, 20+ minutes of commercials, canned formats, national feeds, etc.
The only shining spot for me is "The Beat" on WCKG, while the rest of the time it is a graveyard sports feed off the bird. Normal thinking would prevail, offer something not on the dial already from a great programmer like Sal? Heck, Matt and Sal already have a working relationship. Nah, just bird it! Be non creative and crappy like the rest of the dial!
Stations like 100.1 WGLC in Mendota which air Swap & Shop still care about people. But even those rural local serving stations are mostly on the bird or an HD these days.
Majority of my listening is SXm, streaming, YouTube. In the car I have a few thumb drives with thousands of tracks. I Bluetooth it, but reception gets dicey when leaving the city and heading out where there are more animals than people.
I came from a time when radio was good. Radio DJs would talk to me, not at me. They made me feel like I was part of it. I know a lot of people live with their head in the sand today. Will suck that greasy coin. Will accept anything they are given. Sorry, not me.
