Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

The 1990s were a great period for country, with stars like Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Sammy Kershaw, Joe Diffie, Garth Brooks, etc. Today's country sounds awful in comparison. Current country is just pop music with a fiddle or a steel guitar added, then it is branded as country. Unlike when it firs...

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

You mentioned WVFN. They are one of the rare stations in this day and age that understands how to do LOCAL radio.

Re: The "personality" of radio stations

Often there is no one in studio, but if there is, it seems like the PD would want the station to sound like a radio station, with personality, not someone's i-pod.

The "personality" of radio stations

I don't listen to over-the-air radio much, but I have noticed these days that the stations do not have much of a personality. They will play several songs back-to-back without the jock saying anything. And when they do say something, it is something very generic. How about they say something about w...
