"Can the present style of radio survive? Will people listen to hackneyed delivery of songs they don't want to hear when music has become an on demand item?
No.
Got that?
No.
Music radio is in its death throes. It's going to collapse overnight. It's just a matter of when."

Radio's next

Let the next gen caretakers of music find their voice online. Local content is going to be the challenge.

No one's going to listen if you use this show to rant about the radio biz.

Radio as it stands still works,....sometimes. Like, the radio in the garage. Like the radio at the cottage. That's about it for me.

So does the tv antenna at the cottage...but more and more you see sat dishes going up to meet people's viewing needs. Wifi is soon enough going to be accessible on a regional basis too, and that'll be the nail in the coffin. The spread of those networks and the technology will destroy the old market when the advertisers see people jumping off like lemmings.

Many people's old PC's now hide in the garage with a wireless connection to the house, and they stream their audio there (for me when there's not a Jays or leafs game on the radio). It's only a matter of time until we see this become mainstream, and that's something for the radio guys to worry about...much like the TV providers shudder at the thought of people getting TV via their internet connection.

80's music is the only way to go...If you keep playing 70's and 80's tunes on the radio more often, radio will survive....people are sick of "Gangsta Rap", Lady GaGa and all the rest of the garbage that's being played these days...

The broadcasting landscape is changing faster than can be imagined. Three years ago I started listening to satellite radio and haven't looked back. Before that it was Iceberg Radio and other on-line stations. Done right Fred, it will work. I hope for you it does. I'll give it a shot. Radio as we know it is in an unbelievable funk [I'm being polite, it sucks]. Why should I as a listener, listen to the same 288 songs with some new tunes added and others removed [Q107]. I happened across this fact a few days ago that most classic rock stations have a base 288 songs in their programing. People like Dave Marsden must be scratching their collective heads as to what happened to radio. Go Humble and Fred. TV these days isn't much better with all the "reality" shit thats on.
