1. Pop music is bad. That's no secret. It's really really bad right now. All modern music is, but CHR is always the biggest example of where new hit songs are right now. It's dull.
2. Streaming music. Spotify. Pandora.
3. WBMX and WTMX. Some want throwbacks. They're in their 30s and tired of the pop scene, which has become boring. I understand this.
On the WTMX side, some likely want a bit more variety and some pop songs from artists deemed "Too old" for CHR to play (Pink, Jason Mraz, Lady Gaga, etc) WTMX pretty much plays everything both of B96 and WKSC play, but they don't shy away from other artists and songs. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper's duet "Shallow" for example. Maybe they also want to hear the latest from George Ezra, Lukas Graham and AJR. They're pop songs basically, but Top-40 stations are not touching them.
4. Maybe B96's morning show was a problem. We'll find out.
