radio djs

Posted on August 1, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I hate listening to the radio during my commute, which is why the audio books have come in handy lately. I hate listening to the DJs prattle on about crap. I did listen to  JazzFM for a while and it was quite enjoyable — I found out about the history of Jazz, could listen to the BBC news, and found out about loads of events going on in the city. I can’t handle any other morning personalities. Mix 99.9 recently gave all of their DJs a vacation and so, though the music is just normal radio stuff, nothing extraordinary, I find myself listening to it more because it’s JUST music. I then realized that the plight of the DJ — the talent that used to be an artform is likely disappearing because of digitization. I know I’ll stop listening to the mix when they come back — not a big loss for me, but it was an interesting experiment for them. I wonder how many listeners actually miss the personalities?

I agree whole heartedly with you. Radio DJs (especially morning DJs) are annoying as crap. That’s why I stopped listening to the radio and just listen to my iPod.

I disagree….sorry….Edge 102 has the Best Morning show….I laugh so hard on my way to work (when I used to go in Canada) that I would literally be crying…but the humour is an aquired taste…hee hee hee 🙂

They do have a niche show — but I find them so abbrasive and annoying, especially in the morning. I know that’s probably what they’re going for, but you’re right — definitely an acquired taste 🙂

I have all but 1 word for you…

Sirius.

Howard Stern is the only way to go 😉
