Is it my imagination or is FM radio sucking less lately?
For awhile it seemed like you’d go for days without hearing anything unexpected. It was the same old teeny-bopper hits or smarmy ballads. And the dinosaur rock stations play the same classics AC/DC and Zepplin songs over and over. And the 80’s stations play the same Duran Duran and Thompson Twins hits.
Now there are two stations on my dial that almost always play something interesting. Like a mix of lots of good songs 70’s to present. Station #1 is more alternative — they played The Toy Dolls the other morning. Station #2 plays more of a mix but it’s songs you actually want to hear. I think that’s their motto: “Songs you actually want to hear.”
