What Is This Bullshit On The Radio?


I mean, really, what the fuck happened? I don’t listen to regular fucking radio, ever, I have avoided commercial radio for many years because it simply sucks shit. Living in Houston one would figure the options would be a grand as the city. But noooooooooo, if one doesn’t listen to hip hop, rap, autotune, top 40, country, Latin, Hispanic, talk radio, or christian music, one is severely fucked. There is ONE, just ONE, classic rock station available which hugs a dick because of a very small library or a very short attention span, you pick. Normally I’m plugged into my personal 10,000+ song library but today it wanted to give me grief and I didn’t feel like fucking with it, until I tried to go regular radio. After slapping myself for such an ignorant fucking lapse in my common sense I got my personal shit running.

I know, of all the fucking great things to bitch and rant about, I pick commercial radio of all things no less. Why? It’s no big fucking deal, right? Right, if that is the fucking shit you want to hear coming out of your speakers. So, unless you pay for radio or listen to your own mix then you are ate the fucking mercy of a disc jockey who could give two shits about you personally. Am I being too selfish? Am I asking for too much from commercial radio? Yes, you are right, I do ask far too much, hell I’m not the one paying the bills for them, and I know that. Great thing I can fend for my damn self isn’t it. So now what? Nothing. I just wanted to remind y’all that commercial radio fucking blows, but y’all probably already knew that. Some of y’all listen to the that shit daily and on purpose no less. Anyway, I’ve learned my fucking lesson for the day, don’t trust commercial radio to satisfy you music needs, because they cannot. And that’s the absolute fucking truth my friends, truth indeed!


Finding A New Year’s Format Change


I must say that when I got into my Pathfinder on New Years day to go get my oil changed I was quite alarmed and pretty disturbed. No, there wasn’t anything wrong with the car, but there was plenty wrong with a radio station that I’m a regular listener to. I will be honest, I’m a creature of habit when it comes to what music I enjoy listening to. I listen to basically 3 kinds of music, heavy metal, classic rock, and current hard rock. Depends on the mood and the time of the day really, but I tend not to stray from those three genres. So, anyway, when I turn on my radio to the classic rock station I’ve listened to since probably 1980 or so I’m greeted with the format change. Yes, it would appear that at 00:01 on 01 January 2014 the classic rock station was laid to rest and replaced with a hip hop/ r & b station. After a few minutes of shock, quickly changing stations back and forth I realized that I was indeed not dreaming.

So that is that, another one bites the dust. I have seen, over the years, since I’ve been back in the area I grew up in since 2002, a few radio stations do the magic format switch while nobody is looking. I can count 4 other “rock” stations that have reformatted to Spanish reggaeton, country, and now hip hop r & b. I guess it shows what the Houston market has turned into. I wonder how long it will be before the radio has nothing to offer to me personally on the public free airwaves. I understand it comes down to $$$ but I can’t help but feeling that I was just told a good friend has died a horrific death. Initially I was a little pissed about the format change and then I decided it really wasn’t worth my grief. Today is a new day and one must move on because it is a new year and I have bigger fish to fry.
