Without consideration, caring or forethought, those willed with great wealth and little moral dilemma forged ahead with a devious scheme they called "introduction to the new age of radio". We speak on this subject first because it is such a glaring example of what to many resources guided by the principles of too little moral turpitude can do to a nation though you won't hear to much chatter about it at this point. No one is saying that radio was perfect the way it was. On the contrary it was fraught with problems for a very long time. Corruption, unfair advantages meted out not to the creatives who made it what it had become as an institution but rather to those who would ultimately bring the walls, income and lively hood of millions tumbling straight down with no real plan of action or industry recovery ever at hand. As evidenced by the current state of affairs with terrestrial radio's predecessor you may be able to reason or discern what happened for yourself. Let it suffice to say that a once powerful industry has been left shocked , dismayed and in tattered ruins. No sign of redemption, no sign of any real fix anywhere in sight. Just a lot more lip service and untrustworthy comments. How long do you think it will be before we see any reasonable semblance of an active money earning, job providing industry that is even a small modicum of what it once was when it gainfully employed programmers, music directors, advertising sales people, d.j.'s, copyists, advertisers, sponsors, a plausible facility for songwriters, music publishers, performing artists, musicians, recording studios and the endless list of others so sadly, adversely, meaninglessly disemboweled by the protagonist of greed under the beguiling guise of progress and more opportunity.
