Radio programmers will always be facing challenges around how to best allocate available time and resources to air shows during peak listening hours.
It’s made even more difficult when heavy traffic or weather conditions wreak havoc on networks and lines up against major shows. One of these days, a user-friendly musical weapon will hopefully get its chance to seriously punch a bullet through a radio schedule to get people turned up and tuning in.
