Re: ACM Awards

Laura Bell Bundy looks like she does her Broadway job pretty well. As far as Music Row? Remains to be seen. I've just never been a fan of pop/country. Give me real country any day, but that's just me.

Re: ACM Awards

I don't get Joey & Rory. I don't particuarly like their music, but that's neither here nor there. Just lookign at their body of work, you have to ask why they were even nominated in the first place. The released "Cheater Cheater" in 2008, it topped out at what, 30? Since then they haven't had anythi...

Re: ACM Awards

I enjoyed the show well enough. I wish t hey had more "OH WOW " performances. It was cool seeing Charlie Daniels and John Fogerty coming out to open the show, but I would like more of that. Lady A sounded great! The Keith Urban performance was different than the others, I kinda dug that. I think Ken...

Re: Best ways to interact with your audience

I like to do videos of local things. Take them at events, listeners playing games, etc. It does what phones do, except they can view it over and over and let their friends and family see. It makes them a "star" and it doesn't hurt web numbers for the station either.

Re: Clear Channel buying Pandora!?

When I first read it, I wasn't sure if it was an April Fools joke or not! ha

It'll be interesting to see this play out.

Re: Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban/Eagles

Wow Joni, I think that was a little uncalled for. I know where I am is in the heart of Bush country, which is why I asked if there were any other stations playing them and that I am interested in seeing how the do on tour. I dig a lot of their music, I just know that where I am it's not the best ide...

Re: ACM nominations

People can say what they want about Taylor and how she's not "country enough" or whatever, but that was pretty entertaining! My thoughts is that she is a breath of fresh air to country music. If someone stops on a country station and listens after the song to a Brad Paisley, George Strait, or (for t...

Re: What's the next step for stations?

Wiz, I dig that idea. But the way a lot of stations are run now with just 1-2 people in the building and no part-timers, it'll be hard to get that done. Plus, a lot of these corporate radio stations believe they know what listeners want without asking them. They will TELL the listeners what to think...

Re: What's the next step for stations?

I think the way to move forward is to take a lesson from what radio used to be. If radio gets back to doing good local radio and becoming a part of the community again would be the best change that radio can make. I know that is a far fetched idea in today's economy and the way that some major corpo...

Re: Been to a jock meeting lately?

I always love the line "Well it works in X , so it'll work here." It's so funny how attitudes on music and radio can change just an hour up or down the road, but the people in charge of these large corporations just wanna make everything cookie-cutter, and can't udnerstand why people are tuning out.
