I personally don't listen to much over the air radio, except in the car, and only listen to commercial radio when circumstances force it.

I was having an email discussion with a radio buddy of mine (whose name you would probably instantly recognize). We agreed that for most of our listening we turn to the BBC. He likes 6 Music and I'm more of a Radio 3 fan but both of us like the fact that we're treated to as if we're adults with more or less functioning intellects.

Maybe, Steve, we attract the audience we deserve. Put another way: When we treat the audience like slugs, dolts and nobodies, it is those very folks who relate to that treatment that show up and/or respond. Reasonable, intelligent and aware individuals would balk at our general presentations.

I know that's a little simplistic, but it does make for some serious consideration.

"The vast majority of people in radio who either deliver or have influence over what goes on the air have little affection or respect for either the audience or the advertisers."

Dude, have you ever met your audience?

I don't know about music radio but the talk radio audience makes me want to get get rabies vaccine, just in case.
