Radio

I've generally been unhappy with the radio ever since the alternative rock, punk and ska movement dropped off the airwaves in the late 90s. But I must say, with synthpop, C64 SID chips doing backing tracks, and the new resurgence in "almost vocal trance/dance but not quite" it's actually a pretty good time for me to listen in again.

Now if the top producers would just drop their fanatical use of auto-tune, Timbaland would learn to actually compose for the Sidstation, and Daughtry would break up I'd be one happy listener.
