Which is exactly why I don't listen to talk shows on radio stations - they just don't know what they're talking about. It's like they were given the license to air their opinions freely - but in so doing, making them appear stupid with nonsense comments typically coming from airhead jocks.
The problem with today's set of radio broadcasters is that the basic credentials of a DJ have long been forgotten - great voice (who's got a fantastic voice on radio today - no one!), intelligence, preparation for boardwork, etc. - tenets that aren't evident anymore among these jocks. Today, you just have to look good to come on air - as if it matters.
When jocks like Scotty start blabbing on air without any sense, I just simply tune out. The problem is younger listeners get easily impressed with his accent. But try listening to what he's talking about? Zilch!
But when you have a breed of radio jocks who impress on their listeners with their "western" or call center accents, who try hard to sound educated by using non-everyday words, or who simply don't do any research on any field of topic, then that takes the cake. I've listened to jocks like these several times (Scotty is one of them) and their style is to come up with a five minute monologue of blabbing illiterate stuff that absolutely has no sense at all. You give them the benefit of the doubt by actually trying to listen to the entire five minutes (shuddering and asking, "when will this end?" ), dissecting what they're trying to say, only to end up with a one word question - "huh?"
Signs of the times really when radio has gone beyond interactive with its audience and its DJ's trying to act like experts on different fields of discussion. I realize this but I only hope they prepare for this extensively before going on air. I think that's the least they can do for their listeners.
Nothing against radio talk shows, but I'd rather they'd stick to "fun" topics, than trying to be "relevant". I did love it when they had the Big Breakfast Show with Hilary & Lambert (and a 3rd guy I can't remember right now...)
And sorry Scotty, but I stopped listening to 88.3's morning show when you came on board. I just can't relate to you...
Yeah, namiss ko sila Hil sa Big Breakfast Show dati. Nawala na yung ganung energy ng morning show ng JAM.
Ako din. Naalala ko,may multiply site pa ang Big Breakfast Show tapos may video doon,kinuhanan nila si Migs na sumasaway ng Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John.
Magaling mag-isip si Roanna ng mga segments sa slot niya. I miss DJ Lana.Haay.
at least, we can see Hilary on TV commercials,there's a new advert of Surf
Yeah, I really liked Hilary. She can even carry a show all by herself.
I really like A Different Sunday. Nice songs to listen to while driving.
They had a fracas on air last Wednesday
Sho brought up the story about the 12 year-old who was suspended for wearing a "Life is wasted without Jesus" t-shirt. It was justified considering that American public schools prohibit outright religious displays — but then it became an all-out debate that could have been resolved if they stuck with the bolded statement and took their emotions and personal beliefs out of the equation. Basically here's how it went:
- Sasha thinks it infringes on one's freedom of expression and religion — In theory yes but there's a valid reason for it
- Scotty considers it as a totally harmless statement shirt comparable to "I love Allah" — No, more along the lines of "Anyone who listens to indie is a hipster idiot"
- Sho insists that it's an attempt to stick religion in other people's face and convert them — uh-huh and I guess you're offended as well by guys wearing "Real men wear pink"
The heated and merry-go-round debate lasted for almost an hour punctuated by Sho snapping “Don't roll your eyes on me, WOMAN!!”
Grabe... I heard James Bond girl Rachel Grant just now in The Daily Stew with Roanna. She' so lovely.
Show left Jam na pala; it was announced casually by Scotty during Road Watch today. Strangely this was after he apologized for an unconfirmed comment he made several weeks back about a teacher getting it on with a student on an international school.
Oh well, at least The Rebel Circus's appeal just went up to 47% for me (up from 13%)
I hope they add some new DJs
ang tahimik masyado ng station nila
Hi everyone! Pa-promote lang po.

Sad that Show's gone. Then again, I couldn't keep up with the changes lately over at Jam so minsan na lang rin ako kung makinig.
