I thought clutter was a good thing

Josh pointed me to an interesting thread on the Illinois Airwaves Message Board:

“Next month, Mid-West Family Broadcasting plans to launch www.springfieldcountry.com and www.rockspringfield.com. The former, set for launch the first week of October, will be a country & western station with more classic leanings. The other, scheduled to begin later in the month, will offer classic rock fueled by deeper album cuts.”

The new streaming sites have an interesting little tease: “At last a country station for Springfield without the clutter!” Translation: We know you don’t want all of the commercials and mindless DJ chatter but we can’t think of any way to do that on our real radio stations.
