There is only one good alternative rock station in St. Louis. It's literally the only place I can go to hear good music that isn't mainstream, and it's made better by the fact that they play very few commercials and have no DJs (all automated). Today, I heard a song that I liked, but I couldn't remember any lyrics. So I thought I'd go to the station to see if they had a playlist. When I got there, I found this.
But it got worse. I clicked their link and saw this:
The format is currently rock alternative, but could be changed to country or 50's/60's oldies overnight.
Do you have permission to post that advertisement?
Sorry to hear about your station STL.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
They did a similar thing to a similar station here in Minnesota. It wasn't my favorite station but it was the only place to hear alternative music and some new stuff. They changed it to 70's love songs. Problem is that in most major markets all the main genres are covered and any other station struggles to tread water. It sucks, but Sirius and XM are great options if you want to take that route.
I haven't listened to broadcast radio in ages, as I'm a big fan of Pandora, but unfortunately, Internet radio licensing fees are going to increase to the point that it could make great Internet radio stations like Pandora go out of business. Too bad your station is in limbo, STL. I'd also look into Sirius/XM and enjoy Pandora/Last.FM while they're still up and running.
