  1. I quit listening to commercial radio quite some time ago. I now prefer to listen to streaming services. Lots of choice without the ads or morning shows with the same jokes and topics that have been done time and again on a number of stations.

    On the other hand Edmonton AM and Radio Active are my first choice when I am not near the computer so nice to see they are near the top of the list.

  2. Can’t help but notice that on the old BBM,’s, CBC stations were usually lingering in the basement. But on the PPM’s… totally reversed….Hmmm…

  3. Good point Dave-agree. This is a format for commercial radio stations–so if you quit listening then……?
    And H.H. if you look back at the old BBM from other markets, CBC actually has done quite well, Just seemed like it took a while to get going in Edmonton.

  4. The internet streaming services offer tons of variety – it’s typical that the “old guard” disses these new alternatives; and I too only listen to the CBC when I’m in the car and I forgot to download an archived show from one of the internet shows that I listen to. They’re miles ahead of anything that commercial radio is discussing. And I don’t have to listen to anybody talk about the Oilers on internet radio.

    Don’t let Dave & company get to you. Their response isn’t about anger; it’s about fear. The medium is in decline and the “old guard” is finally coming to accept that their is no future with this medium. They claim young people are listening to the radio but they ignore that the time spend listening is in a free fall especially for younger people. In 10 years the prime advertising demo will be people who..don’t really listen to FM radio.

    Music on FM is the McDonalds of radio. The burger is the music & the drive thru employee is the announcer. You know just what you’ll get but you really aren’t that engaged anymore.

  6. @ Irvine

    You are spot on! FM radio is no longer engaging or even relevant to me, or my teenage and tweenage kids. They will listen passively in the car, but have no loyalty to anyone. The last time my 16 year old cared about a radio show was Pepper & Dylan. The show went away, so did he.

  7. Glad to see that 91.7 the bounce and Fresh Radio are doing good. By the way the pepper and Dylan show came back on 91.7 the bounce as of September 8th. I only listen to either The bounce or Fresh Radio.
