Rock Radio 2.0

Is Rock Radio Dying?

So asks Trent McMartin over at AntiMusic.Com in his Lowdown column. I should think he might want to clarify that commercial rock radio may in fact be dying due to restrictive formats that seem to play "Whole Lotta Love" and "Honky Tonk Women" ad infinitum but refuse to play the thousands of new indie releases released every year that would have most rock and roll fans shooting straight up off their futons and wiggling their ass and shaking their hips with delight. Maybe if some of these commercial DJs would stop playing it so safe and take a risk by programming some great new indie stuff mixed in with the "classics" and then maybe people would start listening again. What do they have to lose?
