Let’s let the professionals do what they do best

While it is certainly noble of FM 94.9 to start paying its fan club members to start DJing for them, I think we can all agree that there are some things that are best left to the professionals. Nobody wants to hear your voice or my voice on the radio; it takes a certain type of butter smooth voice to say, “Does it get any better than the Chili Peppers? We’ll be getting the Led out, and playing the brand new Shins (Phantom Limb) in just a minute, but now here’s Pauly to hit you up with the traffic.”

And if we can just peer into the future, for a minute, and observe the obvious next dominoes to fall if the fans are allowed to take over the airwaves, I think that it’s safe to say that the potential alternative worlds are chilling at best.

Are we just gonna let any man off the street peer over their shades for press shots a la Street Scene promoter Joe Callahan? Are we? Let’s draw the line somewhere. Sanity must carry the day at some point in time, people. Let’s just reign it in before things get too crazy.

    As far as I understand, the insider DJs will be more of a focus group and steering the playlists of the on-air personalities, not replacing them.
