Alex Rudloff asks, Why Does Orlando Radio Suck?

I guess I just don't understand the business behind local radio. I'm sure margins are tight and everything is pre-planned and digital now. It just sucks, that's all.

Thank god for my iPod and my tape deck connector.... New school meets the old.

My response:

There IS an alternative - it's produced for exactly $0, so it's not like it promises to blow you away - it's Rollins' College Radio Station, 91.5 FM. Some talk, some classical, some of everything else. Every 12:00-1:00PM hour is talk, and there are varying degrees of shows in other parts of the day. It is never the same, unless you listen to too much of it, then a pattern emerges, but it takes a LOOOONG time (months) to get sick of anything on that station (if you didn't mind it to start). You can also call anytime (just about) 24/7 and have your request played - anything - and they have thousands of titles and genres available. Check them out.

And if you are inside or out of range, try

They also have a cool thing called Audio Postings (open forum) at the top of every hour - supposedly anyone with a non-commercial message can get their audio clips played as a public service to the listeners. Very cool.

Love WPRK, mind the fact that they play my music and invite me to hang out all the time, they are a great alternative to the awesomely great local mainstream radio in Orlando. They have shows for every facet of interest, and a live chat on for complete interaction with the DJ's. Good call Ryan!
