How Awful Is the Radio in Your City?

Dave Mandl put together a little quiz (well actually it's quite long) that scores your city in terms of radio quality. To be honest it was too long for me to take the whole test but it was so telling about the FMU'er that probably made the test and just as telling about the state of radio today.

My favorite questions:

DJ mispronounces person or place name
- subtract 25

Excessive time spent reading personnel or session information for a track
-subtract 4 for each minute over 1 minute

Use of the expression "politically correct" by right-wing talk-show creep
-subtract 30

Its a statement about the homogenization that's taken place in radio; ALL RADIO.
give it a browse.
