I still worry about the amount of people that are in this business doing five jobs, making 22k, not giving a crap about the process. They are mad that they have to do five jobs and make lousy money. Man or women in the mirror time. Everyone took these 22k jobs and now the media is suppose to suffer because of the lack of correlation and interest in radio from the new breed. All of these jobs we hear about, cept' the big phat gigs are most likely still going to get filled from within. The idea, cost cutting and management knows these people. So the chain of events continues. More pissed off employees doing 5 jobs, making 22k. These are also close to the same people, that when they loose the 22k job, they are off to find another one. Either in the same marketplace where most of them are continually employed or on the radio gypsy nomad wagon.
Final thought: In the 70'sand 80's we made less than 22k and we did the 5 jobs without being asked. We just loved doing this.
