So, there has been this encroachment of mix stations buying out all the rock stations in the area. First they added a station, then they bought out the classic rock station. Now they’ve bought out the alt. rock station. We currently have only this multitude of mix/pop stations as well as the hip-hop station and the country stations (and country lost its balls years ago).
They are advertising all these mix stations as these non-offensive music stations that everyone at work can listen to and enjoy. This sounds very familiar to the Newspeak dictionaries in 1984. For the unenlightened, the idea behind the newspeak dictionaries was that every edition would get smaller with every idea being whittled down into smaller and smaller expressions in language until ideas themselves were destroyed. Perhaps I’m reaching, but it seems as if I’m seeing this in the destruction of these rock stations with this non-offensive bullshit.
Is this happening in anyon else’s town?
