Home Radio Road

Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: FM Is Done.

Not surprise!!!! Two reasons FM is dead. As it will be here shortly.

Large companies bought all the stations and reprogrammed the same crap on all the stations. An example is in the 60s and 70s Long Island had three music stations. All three were very unique. Featuring live concerts, new album releases called deep cuts, local bands, interviews with artists, Dr. Demento, etc... All very unique stuff to each station.

When the large companies bought all three stations they thought - HEY if these kids are listening to Depeche Mode then they will LOVE listening to a continuous taped loop of top 40 and drive time DJ chatter!!!! Holy cow did they misread their listening audience.

Compound the mindless continuous tape loop of top 40 with endless commercials and needless DJ chatter - guess what happened.

Oh BTW cable TV is on the same road as FM radio.

And in a few years streaming digital radio will be the same wasteland of mindless programming and commercials. We are marching through each medium trashing it and moving onto the next one.
