    Default ADKOT Not Allowed on Dallas Rock Station

    My wife told me yesterday that I needed to put the new CD away for a while and try listening to the radio, so this morning on the way to work I was listening to 97.1 the Eagle and the DJ said she was taking requests. I called in and asked for some new VH, she kept me on the phone for 7 minutes telling me how the station is not letting her play the new album. The DJ is a huge Van Halen fan and she loves the new album by the way and thinks it's totally unfair.

    Just curious as to the other markets around the country??? I know the KATT in Oklahoma City is rocking the new Van Halen.

    So why the hell wouldnt a rock station play something from the new Van Halen album? What kinda rock station is it, classic, modern or what? Theres gotta be some sorta logical explanation.

    Exactly, that's what the DJ and I were discussing. They play the classic Van Halen, they give out the Van Halen tickets!!! They just will not play the new album.

    I'm not surprised in the least. I heard Tattoo a few times on my local station, but not for a long time now. It's hard for classic artists to get new stuff played.

    Thats how these pre-programmed, brain-dead, Bad Company or Foreigner 3-times-a-day-playing classic crock stations do things these days. No room for anything new, just the same old shit rotated round and round. The setlists never change, even if they talk about new music from one of the classic artists, they never play it. Radio sucks these days.

    This is the program director's e-mail if anyone would like to send an e-mail in support of the new album.

    Yeah, insulting the programme director is a real good way to make friends and influence people, Beavis.

    You should have simply asked them why you hadn't heard any new VH on their station. If they get a few of those emails every day they MIGHT start paying attention.

    They get some fanboi emailing them insults they're just going to delete it and think Van Halen fans are idiots.
