Something that has bothered me for a long time is the lack of information about music played on radio. What I mean is that the disc jockeys, or whomever plays the music, very seldom mentions the artist, or at least, the name of the song.
I heard several songs that I thought were very good, perhaps prompting me to purchase the music. But it's kinda hard to do that when you don't know who recorded the song.
I think those folks believe that listeners simply know by osmosis. Yes, there were a few artists I knew such as REM and Hootie and the Blowfish.
I heard something by Lady Gaga, and liked it, and fortunately the disc jockey mentioned her name, but not the title of the song.
I wonder if record sales would increase if radios would let their listeners know who made the music? Somehow, I believe it would help.
I grew up in an era when it was customary for the jocks to mention the artist and the title, and in such a way you wouldn't forget. Even songs by the Beatles.
Until the next time...
