Quality radio stations overlooked, potential listeners miss out big time.

When one refers to real radio listeners, one is definitely not talking about degrading stream rippers or stream scrapers who sadly ruin everything in the radio world, the hilarious part is those guilty rippers seem to love landing in a indefinite ban list (sin bin) and rightly so as radio should not have to put up with such nonsense.
This leads me to true sad fact that quality radio stations are been overlooked due to the world wide public mind set, one track minded does not always seem to be the right choice, ‘oh i never heard of that radio station?’ ‘i have no idea who the DJ’s are or what they play?’ or it’s simply a situation of procrastinating false mind thoughts towards a book which one has not even read or bothered reading so to speak.
This is a crystal clear indication of shooting one self in the foot as there are so many fantastic radio stations out there playing amazing music that not even local stations are airing. The unknown radio talent will blow your mind but yet ignored for some absurd mind set. I have 30 years radio experience and i will say in confidence that i have seen so many quality radio stations not getting even near the gratitude and appreciation it deserves.
Gone are the days that social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Mixcloud will do any justice by using their platforms for promotion purposes because it simply doesn’t work, gosh thousands or even millions of people are deactivating their Facebook accounts all for the same reason and you don’t have to take my word for it as the proof is in the pudding. So what do upcoming radio stations do to get themselves known out there? They throw caution to the wind by airing to the world and hoping for the best, a very tough and risky method but for most it seems to be the only way by fighting fire with fire.
In conclusion, if one spots a new radio station or a radio one has not heard of, respect should immediately be shown for the effort of actually taking the courage to get out there, actually why not tune in? perhaps that could be one of the best moves one could do by pressing play, one never knows, it could even be a life changer for the good.
