RE: I never understood the business model for radio

we had a decent local station in Chicago - WXRT. Sold (several times?), ended up CBS corporate; fired or demoted the expensive old timers, including the long time programming director.

a friend from out of town came back home to visit over Christmas, was looking forward to decent radio and was greatly disappointed to find, in her words:

"corporate pop folk for soul-less, conformist hipsters. If I hear the Strumbellas one more time..."

They're a bit better now, but still pretty bland. I mostly listen to a local public radio jazz station now
