    Who Killed Rock Radio?
    Article by Keith Moerer discussing the waning popularity of rock radio stations.

  • WHO KILLED ROCK RADIO? Modern Rock radio once offered serious music fans refuge from the one-hit wonders, mind-numbing repetitions, and classic schlock of Top 40.

  • by Keith Moerer for SPIN -- February 1998 This particular radio station calls itself Zone 105.

  • The reason why this one good station is no longer on the air, and why so many bad stations still are, says a lot about what's wrong with radio in 1998.

  • For anyone who loves music, most commercial radio frustrates because it's programmed for everyone's benefit -- advertisers, record companies, the most casual listeners -- but their own.

  • REV 105, by defining modern rock in a broad but informed way, and by avoiding the mindnumbing repetition that drives dedicated music fans crazy, violated two tenets of the ratings-obsessed radio programmer: Keep your playlist tight, and pound the hits till your most fickle listeners are familiar with them.

  • At the outset of 1997, music fans in the Twin Cities enjoyed two quality Modern Rock radio stations.

  • Must commercial radio suck?? Increasingly, the answer appears to be a resounding, disheartening yes.

  • Not even Modern Rock radio's ratings champ likes what he hears these days.

  • "In general, Modern Rock radio is boring, " admits Kevin Weatherly, vice president of programming at KROQ, the top rated rock station in Los Angeles, the nation's most lucrative radio market.

  • There are a number of factors behind the precipitous rise and musical freefall of Modern Rock radio, and they're as predictable as a new Sponge single.

  • Though Holloway did not play that role (Studio musician/gagman Pinto Colvig provided the vocal honors for Sleepy in addition to voicing Grumpy), it's evident that Disney was very aware of Holloway's vocal talent, perhaps from the actor's radio work.

  • print and broadcast organs from the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times, from NBC to Fox, and from AM radio bands to FM bands, spew out a vile and banal concoction of information that numbs the mind and homogenizes the thought processes of a U.S.

  • And out there on the AM and FM radio bands, the fare is three-to-four hour invective radio commentaries, interspersed with yuk-yuk blather with publicity-seeking politicians.

  • A prime example is Viacom's syndicated morning radio show - simulcast by MSNBC -- hosted by the desiccated Don Imus, who creeks and groans like an old wooden galleon.

  • Not only does he offer a radio and TV platform to people like former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to advocate the assassination of Yassir Arafat but he entices professional journalists to aid and abet in such obvious politically-inspired polemics.
