I was never a hard core metal or heavy metal. A little. Plus I got a kick out of the KSJO bumper stickers being everywhere. On street stop signs even.
Cumulus destroyed them. Now its some crap country music station. Every song is the same.
Now- metal's heyday long passed...but you check out Vevo or Havoc,or Sirius and the hard rock channels are still there full of bands I never heard of.
So,how's is it there are no radio stations with the format? And I ask that not as a future listener- those days are gone- but as a "If I wanted to make money with a radio station" financial wizard wannabe.
Seems like the market is there.
