Record anything and replay

I’ve already mentioned before that I’m pretty bored with local radio stations playing the same music over and over and over again.  It’s like they all have a single CD which they load one one Monday morning and then… never eject.  I know all the songs on that CD and their order.

But that’s only half of the story.  Not only they play the same music, but they pre-record everything else – news, weather forecasts, interviews, etc – and they play them all over again and again too.  So, I listen to news while driving to work, and then I listen to exactly the same news in the office.

And the worst part is that it doesn’t matter which radio station I listen to – they all do the same to a certain degree.  And sometimes they overlap with their content too.  Like they play the same music on several radio stations at the same time, or even put on the same interview.

Weird, boring, and annoying…

  1. However, the more you listen to the track, the more you like it.
    I’ve witnessed it back in Russia, with the Europe Plus radio station, which used to play a certain set of tracks every 5 hours. All their TOP 40 charts were full of those tracks, so after one week or so, I could have seen people start whistling those tracks and enjoying them.
    Thus, personal tracklists simply rock! :)

  2. andrey,

    I must be an exception… if I don’t like the tune and you make me listen to it over and over again, I hate it even more, then I hate nearby tunes, then I hate the whole station, and the world is next in queue. :)
