A blog full of GiR :P

Radio Rampage

by on Mar.05, 2009, under Uncategorized

Every time you get in your car, you usually listen to the radio. Some construction workers listen to the radio while working. I myself listened(or used to listen) to it while doing homework. But now, it seems impossible to listen to any good songs going consecutively because all I hear is Jason Miraz’s new song, “I’m Yours” I think it’s called, which, by the way, isn’t all that great(no offence, Jason Miraz) and listening to what the radio stations are playing just to stay on air is, quite frankly, not so good.

Ever since Indie 103.1 went down, I didn’t really bother listening to the radio during homework, so I started listening to the Adam Carolla Show on my mp3 player because my mom downloaded the show from the website and I just popped in the downloaded stuff straight into my mp3 player. That has now stopped and I think you know why. Because that radio station went down as well! wtf! One station was enough, but two? That just threw me overboard.

The radio stations you hear today are probably still on because they play stuff they were, in a sense, forced to play so they could stay on air. Even then the music they play has been played out too much too fast so now it’s crap. The music they play is no longer entertaining because they played it too gorramn much and now some of us can’t stand it anymore. Give us our radio stations and don’t shove music down our throat if we don’t want it.

    You are the only person who has commented on this!! I miss Adam. I miss Frosty, Heidi and Frank. It was a sad day in radio when 97.1 changed it’s format. I heard Frank say it was because a-hole Lycus wouldn’t agree to the pay cut that the rest of them had agreed to. His time slot was too big to fill so they decided to cut and run. It was more cost effective to pay out everyone’s contracts and switch format. Disgusting.

    When I was a kid we had 2 good alternative stations in SoCal. When I moved back down here 8 years ago one of the things I was looking forward to was the radio stations. Sadly, nothing was left.

    What we are left with is fluff. Fluff top 40 crap. I agree with you completely. They are signing their own death warrants. We will all turn to our MP3 players and less and less to radio.

    Cool Blog! I really like what you said about radio stations only playing the same stuff all the time and not enough indie music. I was an avid listener of both Indie 103.1 and 97.1 Free FM and was very disappointed when those got taken off the air.

    If you’re looking for new indie music a great place to find it is Pandora.com. It is a free music website where you create your own station. For instance, you type in an artist you like and their database generates other songs that are similar in style to that artist. Great way to discover new music!

    Keep up the good blogging!
