I like Jack FM. What's wrong with playing a wide variety of music, isn't that what we've always lamented: that commercial radio only plays the same 12 songs over and over?

Seriously, why is Jack FM a problem?

IMHO Jack FM is a problem for me because:

1) They put lots of radio people out of work - replacing hundreds of DJs with that inane "Jack" character.
2) I hate their advertsing. "We Play What We Want". Huh? Who, exactly, are they rebelling against? It's a straw man telling them they can't play the crap they play.
3) That crap they play. I've sampled Jack FM many times while making my way around Manhattan and the music - for the most part - leaves me cold. Everytime I turned it on I landed int he middle of an Aerosmith power ballad.
4) Did I mention that Jack character? That fucking guy's oily patter makes my skin crawl. CRAWL.

And you like Jack because... they play a wide variety? When I want a wide variety from my radio (and I can't pick up WFMU) I switch channels constantly. I do my own goddamn shuffle.

actually, Jack isn't doing so well in NY based on this article from the Star-Ledger last week:

WCBS-FM (101.1 FM), which flipped from oldies to the multi-era hits format called Jack in early June, saw its ratings drop 50 percent with listeners 12 and older in the Arbitron summer ratings book, which was released yesterday.
[...]
Infinity executives have said they have no fixed ratings goal for the station, which may help them explain the precipitous drop. With listeners 25 to 54, Jack dropped from a 3.1 share in the spring to a 1.9.

There's a new Jack station in Austria -- 88,6 in Vienna and Lower Austria. The slogan? "Wir spielen was wir wollen", of course. They take more (and more interesting) requests than most Jack stations, but a huffy dj drew the line at the Dead Kennedys while I was listening last week, saying they'd "spoil the fun" (and then he played some shitty 70s power ballad). They also set a completely bullshit backstory about a staff rebellion, which the press and listeners have bought hook, line, and sinker.

I strongly support Jose Fm, I live in Manteca CA in San Joaquin County, I listen to it every day, they play songs I remember from my past and new songs I listen to today, the bull shit people comment about Jack is just pure wining, and ofcource I listen to Piolin In witch JoseFM does not play in the mornings but in more popular mexican stations, the Name Jose represents a wide viarity of cuntries other than Mexico, Jose is the shape of a common spanish listener in wich represents millinons of common lsteners, so Jose play what he likes I must like.

I have been listening to Jose FM and so far I like what hear. My only complaint is that we don't have the English version of this type of station (Jack FM). I would love to have both. I live in the San Joaquin valley and it gets tiring to have stations playing one genre each. I grew up with AM radio and remember when they played all genres. Radio has been so very boring these last few years just because they want a certain format. I'm all for variety, life is too damn short. I also wish oldie radio stations would play all songs from bands/individuals and not just the hits. We have a rock station that plays the same old crap and some these rock bands have some other worthy music on a CD that is worth listening to.
