Did I say that? No. I said that radio has been getting cheaper since the 1930s. Especially with regards to engineers. Big AM stations used to have a whole staff of in-house engineers, around the clock staffing at transmitter shacks, and studio operators. One by one those positions were eliminated, mostly before I got into the business. I got hired for my first job because I had an FCC license, so I could combo a board and run the transmitter. They could fire two engineers that way. Inspired by Scott Fybush, I've traveled around the country visiting old AM transmitter shacks. You can see these places were once castles. Now they're mostly empty, dilapidated shells. And it's obvious that the decay isn't recent, nor is it directly as a result of consolidation. Most of these 50K AMs haven't had full-time in-house engineers since the 80s. Don't lecture me about how things aren't like they used to be, you whipper snapper!
And I said radio is a victim of corporate greed. The deterioration has been accelerated in the last 20 years because of de-regulation. I don't think we actually disagree, but for some unknown reason you thought you needed to counter what I stated in the first place. Old people, Jesus! I actually like older people but I'm giving you back a little something in return for your whipper-snapper comment
