Default Music on the Radio

Just a general question for music lovers out there.

Are you satisfied with the music being played on the radio today? Do you think record label exec's do a good job finding music for us listeners OR do you think they missed the mark? If you had the power, would you choose better music????

there are a couple good stations but the majority out there is the same crap played over and over again. its pretty pathetic with the amount of music available that you hear the same song 3 times an hour.

The only radio i ever listen to is classic rock radio.

As far as modern music is concerned, a lot of the best bands out there today are rarely heard, like the mars volta, sigur ros, buckethead, etc...

I dislike radio. Too much of this "we won't play songs longer than 4 minutes because people switch off". We have one good rock station, but even that can be pretty weak with songs by nickelback and such being frequently played.

I often have an urge to start a radio station, purely for the minority of people who, no matter how long the song goes for, still appreciate what they hear. And I wouldn't play too much mainstream stuff, not because I'm a "rebel", but because you should never judge a book by it's cover. Just because it ain't well known, doesn't mean it ain't something spectacular.

When Mark & Lard split up & John Peel died I gave up bothering with the radio

NPR and online are good, but commercial radio is just horrible. Top 40, Alternative, Classic, all of it.
