This is on the door at WEQX in Vermont, the radio station I worked at from 1990-1994. When people say “radio sucks now” memos like this remind me of why. At ‘EQX, and the station I worked at before that, djs were treated - and expected to behave like - professionals. Now, the average jock is expected to switch off their brain and accept being treated as though they have less say about what they’re doing, than someone behind the counter at a fast-food joint.
