it can only be good. its about time they gave Kingsmill the reigns and put Frollows out to pasture. Don't get me wrong Frollows has done a lot of good but its time to shake up the J's a little. Concentrate less on the novelty stuff and more on emerging talent of ALL genres. And stop being so elitist and snobby. ' oh we can't play this now cos MMM does'. get over it. good music is good music.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Hopefully this will be a good thing for indie and local music as Kingsmill has supported many emerging artists in the past as programmer of the oz music show, however in some ways Kingsmill is from the same vine as Frollows and after listening to his shows (oz music show in particular) his music tastes start to become a little obvious sometimes making him genre biased in his playlists, which can often be the problem with radio presenters of even worse music directors. So although Kingsmill may break a few more independants than Frollows did, I have the feeling the station may become genre biased alienating both listeners and chunks of the industry. As the Js and most of its presenters are Sydney based, there's the tendancy that the station will not thrive on the same diversity that melbourne's live music scene thrives on. As most people reading this would know there is an untapped resource of bands working the scene of world class standard that would never get a spin on the Js. Why is that? There's many answers to this question, but firstly how connected is Triple J's music Director and its presenters to the live music scene?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

This can only be a good thing. The King is tops. Unfortunately it does seem that since MMM decided to become a little cooler the J's started to mess with their playlist. What do you all think?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Am I the only one that thinks it wrong that just ONE person can have so much influence over a station? I understand the role of the MusicD, but they aren't GOD! I am not anti corporate business and structure, but I am all for 'Fair Go'!
I think it's about time 'that' person will change.. but crikey heck.. can JJJ really bounce back? I think that more cities need to utilise their community radio (as Melbourne does) and REMIND the J's what it's all about. I have alot of respect for 'the King' but they need to do alot more over there then just give him a new business card. One thing that super bugs me about radio, is why do we need a government LAW to MAKE them (the major stations) actually play Australian music? How shitful is THAT!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
