WNIR OPEN MID DAY

Hey out of work talkers, thinking of shooting a demo to Kaiser Bill? With the passing of a legend Howie Chizek you are looking at both a great opportunity and an impossible task.

Re: Radio's not so bad.. the game has just changed..

Funny thing about options such as Pandora, and that is they program to what you MIGHT like. Off the top of my head I can think of dozens of Top 40 hits over the years that are unavailable on Pandora. So much for sharing titles with your friends and "their" suggestions are never close to what I asked...

CC has way to get bigger????

And why is that good for the industry? How about you serve a market with what you already have.
