Man, US radio really is in trouble! I was listening to "The Clark Howard Show" on WFAS via the internet Thursday afternoon. The station had one of those ten-minute commercial breaks so common in American radio and during that time I only heard three commercials for for-profit companies: a natural sleep remedy, Angry Orchard Cider and "NBC Nightly News." All the other spots were PSAs.
Picked up WBZA Rochester Friday morning. A real variety of stuff, including "Jailhouse Rock."
Am not impressed with CBC Radio One's summer shows this year: repackaged material from "The Current" and "As It Happens", the return of people reading stupid garbage they wrote as kids, another American show on the schedule, repackaged CBC documentaries, a show that just plays podcasts, and two shows that are actually worth listening to.
