Don't get me started! I like Rock music (Alt. Rock,Metal and Classic rock) But one station that I listion too (WXDX 105.9 Pittsburg) Plays so called Alt. rock and metal. Sure they play stuff like White Zombie, Metallica, Godsmack, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Incubus, RAtM, P.O.D, Tool, A Perfict Circle, NIN, ETC.
But now and then they throw in one of these cookie cutter bands that just popped out of nowhere with out any publisity what so ever that are no better then N*Sync that don't have no buisness what so ever to be on a rock station!
Then there is the playing the same song over and over, I like keep hearing Thunderkiss '65 and Meglomainac over and over again! But I don't mind those songs, it's the top 40 cookie cutter ones that bug the heck out of me.
And then there is calling songs that have been out there for over a month "NEW". I mean, although run by CC, the X is a good station, they could play what they wanted to (The DJs come on cussing out the FCC and all that.) but they still have to follow the FCC and CC's rules. So they still have to play like the Darkness (NOOOOOO!) and Story of the year....But they have there little shows like 9 from the 90s and you start the show that play diffrent songs. But only for a bref mute hour or one song.
First off, I have herd the diffrence in CC owned and non CC ownd. Like for instance, when driving through MD. My dad ponted out an old collage radio station that he used to listion to when he lived out there. He said that they used to play obscure stuff, at that time stuff like King Crimson and Gentle Giant. Well sure enugh he was right, they played songs that were considerd tabu by CC standards, Like Punk, underground metal, and singles from mainstrem bands that don't get major air play. But when we got back home, I herd the diffrence, there was just the same song over and over played between ads and talking. I liked non CC channels much better.
There was even one classic rock station that was said to be owned by Steel City Media, well that comony is no more, they are run by CC now. They have Bob and Tom insted of Jim Quinn, the only diffrent from that station from the other ones is that they take there play list from a 40 year old top 40 list. that simple....
But CC wants nonting more then to own all forms of Entertaniment and Communication out there. Includeing billbords. Wich sucks big time!
RR, Some people don't have the money to buy sattlelight raido and keep paying for it, so those people are stuck listioning to the FCC/CC crap that is put out there for the masses.

Your CC rock station is better than ours. Ours never gets new songs! Okay, they get a few every once in a while. All they play is Pink Floyd, Ozzy, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Rush, Metallica, and Puddle of Mud--they claim to play a "variety of hits--from yesterday and today!" but all they play is old stuff, and they play a new band like Trapt every once in a while. I never cared for a lot of the classic rock music, but now I hate it because I've heard it so much.
I listen to an Internet rock station that I made now. www.geocities.com...
But I still get stuck listening to regular radio a lot because I travel a lot. I used to listen to just my CD's, but that got old real fast.
