Monday 12/11/06- What's On My Mind
I can't wait to see what George Jones, Porter Wagoner and others in the music industry have to say about radio consolidation Monday (12/11) at the FCC hearings in Nashville. Somehow the idea of Clear Channel asking to own even more stations in a market than they currently have will not go over well in the Music City. Wish I could be there!
I've always thought that Country stations often incorrectly play LESS Christmas music than our audience wants to hear. It still amazes me the resistance that many program directors have to sharing more of this great, emotional music with our audiences. Fortunately, in our format, there's a wealth of great music by many of our stars including Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride and Brad Paisley, to name a few. Can a Country station go all Christmas? Yes it can in certain situations.
