SM Live 25th Anniversary Episode: ‘Why Is The Radio So Whack?’

Jul 22 2011

Jeff Nelson

SM Live is going to celebrate it’s 25th episode by tackling an issue that Strange Music only knows too well: “why is the radio so whack?”

Turn on the dial and you’ll find much of the same: people singing about stuff you can’t relate to, rapping about stuff that nobody really cares about (especially in these tough times) and over beats that sound like a techno producer’s leftovers.

  • When did this shift become so drastic that almost everything you hear these days is so unbelievably terrible? (Remember, there WAS a time when mainstream did not equal terrible. 2Pac, Nirvana, Notorious BIG, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Nas and so many more…these are all artists that have achieved a great degree of success in terms of record sales and video play)
  • How long can this go on before the world explodes?
  • Who’s going to bring change to the mainstream?
  • Is it even POSSIBLE to bring some change to the mainstream or do the executives that call the shots hold too much power?

You, the fans of Strange Music, have a grip on this catastrophe and we want to hear your opinion. This is an important matter that hopefully CAN be solved, and it starts here on SM Live.
