Long ago, broadcast radio gave up with introducing their audience to new music. I first became aware of it sometime during the summer of 1996  , I’m sure the tipping point occured long before then.
Between Cumulus Media president/CEO Lew Dickey, Jr. promoting the talk radio proliferation on the FM dial, my conversation about Broadcast Radio and Podcasting with Noah Lamson, and the frequency of MTV actually showing a music videos, musicians are in a pickle.
Their traditional distributors aren’t interested in distributing music anymore – let alone new music.
This is unfortunate because I’m more reliant on and interested in new music in the past 6 months than the 6 years before.
 My first full-time job in UW-Stout’s tech department. The same radio station was on in the office throughout the day. Because radio listenership is measured by the quarter-hour, after an hour in the shop, you knew the playlist for the next hour – and every 15 minutes thereafter. A painful way to spent 8 hours in a college town

i’m just catching up on your show. i’m a little behind 🙂
but yes. you’re right. i think all the record companies started losing lots of money after the recession coupled with the rise of cd copying and file swapping. there seems to be a paradigm shift now.
MTV radio has bad music selection
