BBC Radio 1 blacklisted new music by Green Day and Muse from its airwaves. The reason, according to BBC Radio 1 music head George Ertagoudis? Their music “simply wasn’t good enough.”
On today’s Rock it Out! Blog episode, Sami calls up with Norm Winer, program director of Chicago’s WXRT-FM, to see if American radio stations would engage in similar practices. Furthermore, would he, as a program director of a major radio station, ever divulge such information to the public.
While you’re watching, consider this: Should it be up to the radio station or the listeners to decide what’s played on the air? Was Ertagoudis wrong in publicly announcing what bands he was banning? Let us know in our comment section below.
