I've always thought that radio was supposed to be entertaning, to cheer up your days, to bring your joy like the good old days,but i guess we just cant bring back the good old days anymore.
Listening to radio now seems more like frustration then relaxation, for one, they keep repeating the same songs at least 3 to four times a day, be it Hit, Mix, Light and Easy or even Red FM. Just the other day, when i decided to "throw it the towel" and giving up on listening to radio, i thought i might as well for the last time give our national English radio station (Traxx FM) a last chance, i changed that dial to Traxx, i breathed a sigh a relief at last i could listen to something unlike those formatted radio stations with repeated songs being played, Traxx does play good selection of music, different genres.
But my happiness was short lived,right on the dot of every hour, they broadcast the news, i was thinking to myself can there be so much news to be told, that they have to do it hourly, and i could say even the news content is kind of lopsided(if you know what i mean), and the way and the manner the deejays manning the show was nothing much to crave for.
Seriously, as far as i am concerned, there is just no one particular deejay that can be considered prominient,unlike those days, we had the likes of Yasmin Yusoff and Patrick Teoh with their antics and their ways of commanding attention from the listeners, we just got glued to them, i really think radios now are dead.
So, i guess i will hava to get my car CD player fixed and say Adios to listening to the radios with their repeating of songs and the silly jokes made by the deejays.
P/S: Looks like CD player kills the radio stars.............
