What do you miss from the past that was valuable to you then but doesn’t (or barely) exist today?
|Erik Bradley, B96: I used to love reading the liner notes and production / writing credits in full length albums…it’s much harder now to know exactly who produced what or who wrote what unless you really seek it out.
Reid, KZZP: My flip phone. Smartphones make it hard to disconnect.
Matt “MJ” Johnson, KUDD: I like living in the now. I really enjoy evolving and figuring it out. I’m not one to look back, after all I’m an Eagles fan what would you expect?!
Derrick “DC” Cole, WLAN: Segueing a live board! Can I tell you how much I loved doing it and how much of a skill it was to “run a tight board.” Loved it!
Rick Vaughn, Power 94.9: Condoms.
Sassy, WKXJ: Part-timers!
Kobe, WWHT: Manpower!
Terri Ray, WKLT: Record company support
Matt Talluto, WBYR: I miss having cart machines and reel to reel’s in the prod studio, not necessarily to use, but so the newbies to business can appreciate what the technology is doing FOR them today.
Jonathan Reed, WNOK: My Liver!
Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: Having two more part timers and live and local jocks.
Java Joel, WAKS: Free time. Time to be creative. Time to experiment. Time to fail. Time. I miss time. Is that still a thing?
DJ Riddler, KROI: The Houston Oilers!
R Dub! Z90: Night show groupies.
Rob Roberts, WRQX: A programming assistant.
Fish Boy, WKRZ: 360 replay machines. Man, I miss those things. Those things were amazing.
Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: Baseball cards.
Kevin Kash, WWEG: My Evil Knievel Stunt Cycle set
Willobee, KVNV: A full time live airstaff.
Roxy Myzal, hardDrive: Album sales that are over 250,000 in one week for a rock band.
Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: I loved my Blackberry! Was able to type without even having to look at the keyboard. Pretty much as useless as a typewriter now.
Chris K, 106.5 the end: Listeners calling in and making requests.
Jeremy Rice, WBLI:Obama.
Brian Mack, WXXL: Bengal tigers? I always was a fan of big cats.
Dom Theodore, Radio Animal Media Strategies: Radio.
Jeff Hurley, WHKF: My CD collection that filled up half a truck, and now I can carry 10x that much music on my phone.
Gina Gray, WERO: Family time.
Chris Michaels, FM100: A cassette player!
Terry O’Donnell, WKKF: CARTS!
Max Volume, KOZZ: Record companies and their reps. Somehow an MP3 in an email isn’t quite the same!
