Good Riddance 99x, You'll Almost be missed!

So the only alternative rock station in Atlanta is gone as of 5:30 today. And fittingly enough, the last song? Green Day's Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)”. At least they've got a sense of humor about it! I almost never listen to the radio anymore thanks to my J-Pod and accompanying I-trip. I just listen to my own 4,000+ songs on random shuffle in my car.

For those not in the know? now? no? nough? noe? know! 99x is going internet-only. Q-100, ATL's metrosexual hip-pop station is moving to 99.7. Yawn. Supposedly 99x is still gonna sponsor concerts, so I guess that's good. But I wonder how bad the ratings will be on the internet. Either way, I'm sure the website is blocked where I'm at anyways!

Q100 taking over 99x is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with the business of radio today.
It is also a perfect example of how iPods and XM will destroy the idiots that run terrestrial radio.

If you truly despise actions like this …
Hurt them where it really matters.
Don’t buy an HD radio.
Don’t listen to Q100.
Spread the word.
Find out who has an Arbitron “book” (ratings form) … tell them to fill it out as “listening to XM”

Stations like Cumulus and Clear Channel will die a horrible death.
Let’s help speed it up.
