Music died.  Starting in 1996.

Then I'm glad Semisonic got out Great Divide before it happened. Great album from start to finish.

Maybe this is the next one I'll teach myself. Looks like a D to F Bar to G... I think? 


The bar will be the hardest part for me... plus, the weird muting strum.

There's a very specific reason that I put it at 1996.

That's when the regulatory environment changed. The limit was removed (or relaxed, I can't remember and can't be bothered to check right now because my brain is full of alcohol) on how many radio stations could be owned and operated by the same company. So after that you got companies like Clear Channel (now known as iHeart) and Citadel Broadcasting (no relation to present company) buying up tons of stations.

The result was that traditional A&R died almost immediately. The big radio companies didn't have to seek out new talent because there wsere very few independent broadcasters left. The big companies don't do A&R, instead they "manufacture" new acts. They find attractive and marginally-talented performers to record songs written by Lukasz Gottwald and Max Martin. It is formulaic and sterile but your typical mass-market consumers gobble it up.

That's why there's no point in owning a radio anymore.

And why radio seems mostly the same no matter what State you live in, including the places on the dial where you find the music you like. 

The problem though: 

"It is formulaic and sterile but your typical mass-market consumers gobble it up."

Is us.

Yes, classic Reagan deregulation.

There were unintended consequences. We probably wouldn't have Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile and countless others if he hadn't broken up the Bells. We probably wouldn't have cell phones.
