The Aftermath of the Fire!
A Note From Eric:
Now that we’re in an era in which that sort of stuff has been squeezed out of existence, it’s crucial to remember that I wouldn’t be here had it not been for my mentor, the great Joel Moss of WEBN. Joel and the PD at the time, Tom Owens (another radio visionary), took a huge chance on hiring some random musician with no radio experience whatsoever as Joel’s assistant. If not for that gig, and the time under Joel’s wing in Cincinnati, I’d probably be working at an ad agency now. So removing the hired production assistant from the equation is just one more reflection of the short-sighted mentality that permeates our industry as a whole, and is yet another reason for the watered-down state of affairs we’re facing today.
When I started in the industry back in the mid-90’s, there were loads of stations and markets where talent was highly concentrated. Piles of talented people having loads of fun making ONE radio station unique. Over time, all that talent has been diluted and spread more thinly, or squeezed out altogether. So apart from a handful of large-market behemoths (like z100), it’s hard to find any one station that feels like it’s firing on all cylinders. THAT was the satisfying part of that era for me— feeling like you were on top of your game, and able to consistently knock it out of the park as part of a fantastically focused team. I’m wondering, does anybody feel that anymore?
And ONE more time the CLASSIC Foxx pic Circa 1974!
