Top 40 local radio ain't dead yet!
Do you remember what Top 40 radio used to be like before companies like Cumulus & iHeart Media bought up nearly every station in the country?
DJ's were allowed to play the music they chose or open the phone lines to requests. Playlists were open-ended, constantly growing as DJ's & listeners discovered new and exciting music.
There was an emphasis on new singles allowing for everyone to find new music but there was also room for local artists, classic hits & obscure gems that even a regular listener might be hearing for the first time.
Those days are sadly gone for terrestrial radio, but they live on (for now) on internet radio stations like ours!
