The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 755: The More Things Change, Part 1

How many times have you said “Music was soooo much better when I was young!” Ore maybe you’ve said something like “Old music sucks! Today’s music is way better!”

Be honest. It’s okay. You are not the first person to say this nor the last. I will prove that with these next two programs. These battles of generations have been happening for centuries–and I will prove it. I think you’ll find this amusing and illuminating.

The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:

We’re still looking for more affiliates in Kamloops, Kelowna, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor,  Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.

If you’re in the US and you want to stream the show, I wish I could help. A performing rights organization called SESAC has made threatening noises about suing non-American radio stations who dare stream into the US without paying crazy fees. Most Canadian broadcasters had no choice but to geo-block their streams. But hey, if you know of an American station that would like to take the show, contact me and we’ll make it a priority.

Off to Singapore Tuesday to firm up the debut of the program on OneFM.
