Tragedies breed difficult balancing acts for a station like the Ticket. We have a big adventure going on with the Musers Tour of Texas and we want to bring you that fun, but we also must talk about the bombing in Boston. It’s fresh and raw national news. You can’t ignore it. You also can’t please everyone.
Please stop talking about the Boston Marathon bombing. I realize that it was a dramatic and devastating event, but you guys need to let it go.
It is understandable to talk about it the first day, but there is only so much you can say about it. You are to the point where you are just repeating yourselves. I understand that you have listeners at different times and days, but if any of your listeners have not heard about it from your station or the news or any of the social media outlets, then they are not really a listener.
Just please move on with your day and do your regular show and make me laugh as usual.
Excluding your already long promotion times, about 60% of your airtime is spent talking about this bombing nonsense. There is nothing you can do about it. Just put it in your memory bank and move on.
Before you judge me, I feel for everyone that had a loss or incident that was related to the bombing. It is no doubt a sad event. But do not over do it like radio stations over-play songs. Mention it a couple times and show your respects, but no more.
It is understood that everyone feels sympathy for what happened. Nobody is going to hate you because you are not talking about it.
Just please stop this. It does not get you more listeners, so stop wasting your time or else, I am moving on. I am a faithful P1, but when you guys start to waste my time with these ridiculous stories, I will gladly just go back to listening to music instead.
I doubt, I am the only one that feels this way.
