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?
