Re: New Maroon 5 single

So take the instrumental and the regular song and mute down the mother part and play the instrumental over it. You can do the whole song in audition in about 15 minutes give or take.

Re: New Hard Rock on Active Rock is Dead, Why?

I love to look at the old arbitron ratings, I have a site where I can look back at the 80s 90s ratings for all the markets and it breaks down by demo and sex. Back in the 80s rock radio had ownership of all male demos. Some markets chr did well with men, but rock really dominated, sometimes 3 statio...

Re: Katy Perry Alternative - "Walking On Air" or "Internatio

Walking on Air is not a #1 song, but it is top 10 material and no doubt will get a better response than "how we do".

Hey what do I know, I only screamed that Disclosure Latch was a hit more than a year ago and did the same with Clean Bandit back in January. :)

Re: I can't think of a worse forum to spam.

I love being on the air, and I get to do it, my childhood dream, once or twice a week on the weekends. During the week I have a real job where I'm valued and paid a fair amount for work. I love following radio, in a comical sense, these idiots who can't hear hits just now really spinning talk dirty ...

Re: People who approach Radio with Passion VS those who don'

I seen this early on as an intern in high school. I have the bug, I love radio and always will so doing it part time works for me. I sometimes think about the fact that I could put on a much better product than most of what I hear in most markets, but then I see how mediocrity is rewarded and statio...

Adult hits should be the perfect most viable at work station targeting a female who is 40 years old. AC is doing this well in many markets, but instead of playing all the hits many opt to be a watered down chr hot ac instead when the demo numbers are lower than the hot ac and or chr or even country,...

Re: KISS FM

A medium that people use to escape life for a moment or to either lift them up or relax them, to make them feel good and happy is programmed by fear through people afraid to lose their jobs. That just doesn't work. I wonder how amazing radio could be if some of the most brilliant minds and talents i...

Re: KISS FM

Some great opportunities to take out the leading the stations in key demographics due to their own laziness and extreme cost cutting in quite a few markets, some major. It wont happen because the industry is ran by people too afraid to try something new and unique, nothing earth shattering but a dif...
