Would you please STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I live just south of Nashville TN. Franklin is somewhat know as the Christian music capitol of the world. The local Christian radio station is WAY-FM 88.7. Great station to a point and that point is they can’t quit playing the same top 10 songs over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. I think they have energizers in their station keeping it going like that.

Someone PLEASE call the program director and tell him/her to STOP the madness.

I have figured that over the past year, “Flood” gets played every day at least once. I like Jars of Clay just as much as the next guy. Dan Haseltine has got to be one of the greatest songwriters of all time. It’s obviously proven from this very song. But yesterday, it came on and I had had enough and turned it. Just today, it came on and once again I flipped the station and later… IT CAME ON AGAIN!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

Is it that they can’t find any other song to play or does Jars of Clay give like a load of money to the station so they feel like they have to play this song? Jars has a lot of good songs. Why do they have to keep playing this one. I mean come on, it’s a classic song now. It has a copyright of 1995. That’s over ten years and it’s being rotated like it came out yesterday.

If you can personally communicate to the program director of the station, please refer him to my blog. I will more that happy discuss my disgust in the radio station that will not give anyone and opportunity unless they have a record deal with the biggest labels around.  There is a lot of good music, but will never see the light of the day on radio cause they keep playing “FLOOD”!

    My dad was a DJ back in the 50s-70s & he used to talk about limited play list. It seems that has been a problem with radio stations for years. He said one thing he really hated was when they would have a contest to see how many times a DJ could play a certain song in one shift. It would get so ridiculus that the same song would be played several times in a row.

    This is sad!!!! I always wanted to be a dj, but I don’t think I could’ve dealt with that.
