I've been working/going to school which makes my days last from 8AM to 10PM JUST ON CAMPUS for the past 4 weeks! The radio station staff and I have been averaging 30 hours a week EACH completely redoing our station because we got brand new equipment, totally new operating system and a brand new General Manager who has changed just about everything in the station (I at least was able to pick my own staff). Anyway, with all these changes going on we can't do everything and since we overhauled our format (that use to play anything and everything - now we actually have a real "format") we've had to go through all our music, edit, throw away, and we are just now starting to add. It has been incredibly frustrating because we only have about 500 songs in our playlist and that doesn't create much variety. Anyway, to my point, we are being attacked by students on campus for "selling out," "sounding like every other clear channel station," other explicit things which can't be mentioned on this wonderful sight... it is all so frustrating because we are working so hard right now and just get bashed left and right.
I've heard some compliments from people who hated the station last year (and trust me, it was baaaaaad!), but right now people are just being rude. Makes me hate my work and we've only been on air and in school for 4 weeks.
Anyway, sorry about the rant... I just can't release it at the station because I'm the manager and it wouldn't be a good example to my staff. Gotta stay positive for them though I feel ripped apart inside at the moment.
