Why because since 1984 things changed and the Music industry wanted to sell what they wanted not what the Adults wanted at that time. So now kids grew up with the lack of musical knowledge in other words if it aint boom boom base or screaming speed Metal they are not happy. My station is Not for that so of corse you dont see me number 1 in ratings.

I also go out and meet people not sit in front of my computer and expect my Radio station to suddenly have 900 listeners. When I see an Album Rocker I tell them about The Legacy and how tp tune in. I even show them how to listen in their car with an FM wireless Transmitter imagine that and some buy the Smartphone and wireless Transmitter just to listen. Meeting and being in contact with Real people IS How you get Listeners that stick around this I have always knew. If I were fully sighted I would have even more listeners.
Thanks for the awesome lesson on the 80's way of running a station.
I don't have to imagine a "wireless Transmitter" I started on FM stations
I designed and built such equipment.

Music and Social trends evolve. For every one person you go out and meet,
there are 100+ on facebook. Build a community, talk to them everyday and meet some
in person at events or on a personal level. I know plenty of station owners that utilise facebook
in this way and their listener counts have shot up far beyond those they had in the old days.

Not long to go

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.
