the decline of radio in america


so we have the satellite radio revolution, which will eventually make analog radio obsolete. of course this provides a great opportunity for local community radio to expand into the niche.

What are your thoughts on the decline of radio and the satellite radio revolution?

I happen to love regular radio, compared to the satellite shit they now got available...like some commercials say...with tthe satellite you do not get the loacal weather and local news like the hometown stations provide....what you do get is commercial free radio, but in time I see that changing...eventually there will be commercials on that shit too...I like most of the commercials...I find out about cool new businesses in my area through the local...I can do without a lot of the new techno changes the world is making...except the internet I do LOVE that!...

You're probably right, eventually everything becomes commercialized.
It's only a matter of time right?

I have some friends that used to be involved in Community radio here in St. Louis. From what i saw, the costs are too great for many stations. Also I don't see satellite radio replacing commercial radio because its FREE! But then i don't listen to anything but community radio and CDs from my collection and the library. If you're disgusted with the great radio wasteland, your local libraries can be a great resource. If you do that, invest in a disc cleaner. I think some people use the CDs as coasters.
