Embrace Technology, But Let's Not Forget The Past

Updated: Jan 20, 2022

For some of us who grew up in the 70's or 80's, radio was everything to us. We were lucky enough to possibly have a friend who knew a friend, who knew another friend, who could perhaps make an illegal copy of that brand new Guns N' Roses album that everyone was talking about. That's how my life was back then. Suddenly, boom, everything changed. The CD was invented, then mini-discs (I foolishly thought they would survive), then Napster. If you were like me, and couldn't just splurge every week $10-15 dollars for new albums, then welcome. If you weren't like me, you probably don't have the foggiest notion of what I am talking about. I digress. I am happy that cassettes are having a rebirth, I am also glad that today's generation values vinyl.

One thing that many have seemed to forget is the power that radio once had. Why don't we all make a simple pledge this year to give radio some love. It wasn't so long ago that those on-air personalities were rock stars. Yes, Howard Stern is alive and well, and I count myself as one of his legions of fans. But now more than ever, local radio needs the love. So, if you're on your TuneIn app, or you happen to be driving, give local radio a chance. You just might be surprised at what you hear.
