Radio Playlists

 Whatever happened to all the songs we listened to and loved in the eighties and nineties? My local radio station plays only the ultra latest releases, and over and over again. Their motto says ‘we’re original’ and ‘we play songs you don’t hear anywhere else.’ Meanwhile, in reality they regurgitate songs released in December 2009, almost in the order they were played on the first day the list was put together.



This makes me hate songs I previously enjoyed. I get to saturation point and don’t ever want to hear certain tracks again.
I sympathise with the artists they play. After all, many of them have impressively long lists of records and albums. Playing just one song – his/her latest - makes you think the artistes are only as good as their last song. This can’t be fair to them.



You’re probably thinking that I should change the radio station I listen to. I have in the past two months. I really have, but the new one is no different from the old.
Back in the days when I was a radio broadcaster, I produced my own shows and picked my own music. I made sure I chose songs I hadn’t heard in months (there are millions of them) from different genres. I didn’t want to bore my listeners to death with the new stuff. Forget playlists and music producers’ requests! Give us diversity! (Yes. I know it’ll never happen because lots of money is involved).



I have now made the decision to switch to a classic radio station that plays 'golden oldies.' At least I love this type of music and will be given the chance to hear a variety of songs.

What does your local radio station play?

Our local stations play the same music over and over and over. Sometimes in one morning we get to hear the same song 4 or 5 times. Talk about overkill. So I prefer to have a CD player around and play what I like.

Oh Anne, you've nailed this on the head! I hate radio now too for the same reason as yours, and I'm at the point not turning it on anymore!
