Lee Abrams Brags About Killing Free Form Radio

Long before he did his best to help sink the LA Times, Lee Abrams helped kill interesting radio. He brags about it in an audio interview with blogger Radiogirl.

Responding to the charge that he helped destroy free-form radio across America, Abrams responded, “They had the chance to go mainstream. They didn’t.”

Another juicy nugget:

“If you want to reach a lot of people, there’s only a limited amount of songs they like. You can’t just go nuts and play everything.”

Can’t embed, but listen here. An interesting study in the concerted devolution of American culture.
