Default Radio stations all play the same songs, in NYC at least

Pretty much every station is top 40. And a couple rap stations.

There's no actual hard rock, alt rock, folk rock on any NYC stations that I know of.

Very few songs on any NYC radio station actually involve live musical instruments. Almost entirely via electronics/machines + singer + producer

Dammit! You tell em, El Jeffe! Tell em!

We need more variety music in the NYC and for the BTEs to stop getting deleted. They're our history and we must cherish them!

I think it is like that everywhere. I feel like that in the Portland and LA/Orange County areas as well.

Blame the FCC for changing the telecommunication laws which allowed monstrosities like Clear Channel to exist.

whoa... broadcast radio?

i don't know what i'd do without internet radio or the devices to carry around / replay the endless amount of cool new stuff i'm always finding online.

can't believe how much money i blew when i was younger just speculating in stores. now i donate a small but reasonable fraction of that to online sites (like, say magnatune) and i frankly need more time and ears to listen to it all. the future turned out friggen awesome in this one case.

In Atlanta we have 4 pop radio stations and 3 hip hop stations. It's ridiculous. There was a metal and hard rock station but they changed it to pop. They got rid of one of country stations and changed it pop. I like pop but there is no more diversity on the radio.

Not true Jeff. I listen to an indie station from NY every now and then at work on my iphone app from Australia. It's called "WITR" (89.7).

I'd like it if there were a station that played non-singles only.

So? You report the same basketball news as everyone else. Just at a much later time.

JUST KIDDING!
