Spirit of Radio

Here's an interesting article form the Washington Post....sad to see the guy justify his actions by saying "change is good". Hopefully satellite radio will put him on the dole... [url=http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A23996-2002May28.html]Mega Hurts - Clear Channel Radio[/url]

Interesting article. Last night while listening to election results on the radio from my old home town I was delightfully surprised by the selection of music they played. At night the DJ has freedom to make his own play list. I heard everything from Foghat to Nattalie Merchant to BT. Mixed in with album cuts form Zeppelin and major hits from this year were songs I did not recognize but still enjoyed. If I could get daytime radio with that variety where I live now I would not have ripped my entire collection of 1000 CD to computer here at work. It seems that every month another DJ in the area looses his or her job to a satellite feed. If I am going to listen to satellite I will listen to XM. Robert
