  1. I love how the people who write these press releases don’t realize the irony of using words like “fresh” and “innovative” while promoting the same half-dozen names that have been running the radio game the past 15 or 20 years. Kinda like Lee Abrahms talking about XM’s cutting edge content, with specialty shows starring…Tom Petty. Bob Dylan. Who are these young upstarts?

    Of course maybe I just have sour grapes, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
