Good radio gone


Re Joe Cardona’s excellent Nov. 9 column, Miami’s painfully audible radio waves: Tolerable radio in Miami has ceased to exist, WLRN and WDNA excepted. Any station that, as Cardona puts it, “unleashes and unshackles their on-air personalities” would most certainly be the “toast of the town,” but not for long.

Unfortunately, they would end up simply being toast on the plates of the execs at Sunbeam, Cox and Beasley.

For years it’s been obvious that corporate radio panders to the lowest possible intelligence denominator, which is why I have satellite radio. Where are the likes of ZETA, Rick & Suds, Neil Rogers and Phil Hendry when we really need them?
