I find the shift to more contemporary programming to be undesirable. The first thing that attracted me to 740 afew years ago was the great quality and quantity of music from the 20's up to the late 40's and early 50's.
There are a great number of stations that play 'oldies' from the 60's through to the 80's, but it's not what I want to spend my time listening to. I want to get to know the musical standards of the past. I want to have a better understanding of the earlier days - what my parents and grandparents listened to. That's why 740 was so appealing to me.
Mixing it with music that often has lyrics that you can't make sense out of is not how I want to spend my time. I I want something that I can keep in the background while reading, dining, talking, relaxing. Something to bring a quiet completion to a busy day. Comparativly speaking - I would far rather sip a glass of wine at the end of the day - not gulp a diet soda full of fizz!
Eva D just gave a perfect answer to the change of programming. Immediately after an article about how happy people make others happy, Eve D came on the air and said.. yes that article is very true, listening to he happy CHristmas music I feel inclined to sing along with it. so it is true happy things make others happy. WELL I AM NOT HAPPY with the new programming. talk shows are for whiners and complainers, they are NOT happy- they have their place, but not on a senior radio station broadcast all over the world.. Why let other countries know our problems.. BE HAPPY. SING. Dance in the kitchenj.. enjoy life with music from happpier times. why make everything depressed,...
