If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, then you’re probably already aware. However, it is still worth reiterating the above captioned title: “Bay Area Radio Sucks.”
KOME and KSJO were awesome. So, of course, they’re now historical relics.
99.7 NOW is absolute garbage. They might as well call it the Cher Lloyd, Pitbull, Carly Rae Jepsen, station. While I actually enjoyed Pitbull early on, through know fault of his own (and with blame squarely resting on the shoulders of 99.7 NOW) I cannot stand Pitbull. I guess familiarity really does breed contempt. Now, before you start-in with your tersely-worded and badly misspelled e-mails indicative of your second grade reading level, I cannot simply change the channel because, often, I am in a situation wherein control of the radio station is beyond my grasp.
While this next comment is unrelated to music on the radio, since it does relate to Bay Area radio, it is still worth mentioning that the KNBR morning show with Murph and Mac is absolute bilge water and has been for years.
I believe Jim Norton said it best when he commented about California radio on Opie and Anthony years ago: “There’s nothing coming outta that f*ckin’ state but SOFT, WEAK, GARBAGE!”
Indeed, Mr. Norton. I concur.
