they screwed the old folks by switching wcbs fm to "jack" format, firing the legendary cousin brucey in the process.

i got some jack for ya...

they're just begging me to get a satellite radio subscription.

The selection of songs on the radio are really bad these days. Bring back hard rock!

A year ago I drove cross country with a friend in a Uhaul and we were stuck with radio the whole trip. Man oh man, I cannot believe the garbage that radio has become. We have a really good station here in New Mexico. HTDAAB was released the day we started our journey and I heard two songs from it (Vertigo and Sometimes...) on the NM station before we were out of range and also listened to Amy Goodman on "Democracy Now." That was the last decent thing we heard on the radio the whole trip. All across America, no one was playing the brand new U2 record or anything even remotely interesting. It was really depressing.

I agree that radio generally sucks EVERYwhere, but no I really see no point in it when New York City does not have a rock station anymore.

I mean that just does not make sense to me.

I have a friend who helped start SIRIUS. He has long since moved on, maybe he should have stayed...

my radio hasn't moved off of AM in a couple of weeks... FM radio just isn't worth listening to anymore. i'm on a permanent rotation between WFAN, ESPN1050, 1010WINS and WCBS

yeah me too

But I do have to say, that Jack FM is entertaining. They play anything they want which means that they play Tom Petty, followed by Chaka Kahn, followed by Dave Matthews, followed by the Thompson Twins....it's all over the map.
