One Response to Teens Choose Streaming Over FM Radio

    I can’t say I blame them. The state of “music based” radio today is sad. While I’m not a teen, I don’t see anything that can appeal to teens the way CFNY did back in the early-mid 80s. In their lust to appeal to everyone, radio (especial music radio) appeals to no one. The one exception might be the generic drivel stations trying to appeal to office minions.
