It was 6-months-yonder-from my November 19 post about radio-heading-for-the-rocks.
So, without researching trade press morgue for their names, let's simply recall that, on that day, EVEN MORE PEOPLE GOT FIRED.
Just in the last few days, when stations were too automated/syndicated/voicetracked-in-advance to properly react, the death of Michael Jackson reminds us that radio's slip is showing.
