Radio stations are the easiest way for you to occupy your thoughts while driving, cooking, cleaning the house, running, etc. But nowadays we see the trend that radio stations are not as good as they used to be, and we cannot help ourselves but to ask – why is that so? Why radio stations all of a sudden suck? When did that happen? Why didn’t we see it? How can we change it?
Not to worry, as we will tackle these questions one by one, in order to see when and where the things have headed south for the radio stations.
Why Radio Stations Nowadays Suck?
Well, the answer is simple: we eat much more media present nowadays; radio stations are not as fresh as they used to be once. Furthermore, generally people have turned to other forms of media when it comes to receiving information and the news. Also, radio shows are not as popular as TV shows. And radio presenters are not as popular as TV presenters. Perhaps it is not that radio shows are bad, and its radio stations suck, but that we are accustomed to a large number of different sorts of stimuli being exposed to the smartphones and tablets and television programs, and our computers. We are accustomed to having different sorts of input, and when we have to focus just on the radio voice, order music, it sounds boring, since it doesn’t provide the number of stimuli which other media manages to give us.
When Did That Happen? Why Didn’t We See It?
As with all things in life that seem to have changed overnight, they were actually changing gradually wore a longer period of time, only we were so occupied with other things that we did not notice. Once that you finally take time to notice the changes, it seems like they have happened overnight, and this can be rather shocking. Furthermore, more and more people are only using the radio as a media which can fill the gap. They don’t entirely focus their attention to the radio show or music. But rather and they tend to use radio as a means to avoid awkward silence during the long drive home or a run.
How Can We Change It?
There is nothing you can do in particular in order to change the course of radio development. Even though, radio stations have lost on their popularity, and less people nowadays listen to their radios can be used to, radio stations are still very useful and they are still very present. Even though they might not have the impact which they used to have, I doubt to that of radio stations will cease to exist in near future. Therefore if you like to listen to the radio you should not fear as they will be around for years to come!
