"Live & local" is but one element to be addressed. I mean: addressed fully. This concept is no 50-cent plug-in.
Meanwhile, there are no excuses for the insane practice of phusterclucking spot after spot after spot.
But, here's the more important element: Even a spot "gang-bang" might be a little more tolerable IF the spots themselves had some appeal.
Anybody coming away from the conference - whistling... is whistling in the dark. There are still great big boogiemen out here.

Mention of a 'tremendos commercial load.' If it's that heavy (Ladies and gentlemen, we interupt this commercial to bring you a program) maybe you need to revisit your rate card! 'Dollar A Holler' was OK (not good, just ok) 50 years ago. It or its equal is NOT OK today.

Finally. Thank God. Many of us who started in the business in the 70's remember listening to radio as teenagers in the 60's and live, local, and exciting radio. We listened, learned, and practiced our style from some of the greats; Don Steel, Robert W. Morgan, Pat O'Day etc. Then came the almighty dollar, corporate take overs....and the lowest of low, voice tracking. The talent today for air talent for tomorrow has nothing to lean from on most of today's radio. Keep in local, live and fum.

Good to see that some people are waking up. If the crap programming continues you can kiss Radio goodbye as a viable medium.
