    Thank you for bringing the article on Pandora to my attention. I’ve never read an article that has angered me so much before. The arrogance of the guy when he talks about ‘levelling the playing field’, when it’s the fault of people like him that has led to the decline in music choice, and with terrestrial radio being forced to compete with internet radio by dumbing down in the first place. Outrageous.

    Neal, terrestrial radio was getting mighty dumb long before Pandora showed up. And, while Tim Westergren may be giving only his side of an argument, the facts of the case are very complicated and go back a very long way. Every faction has a legitimate gripe, and there is no one clear answer that works for everybody.

    IMHO, and I speak as a former terrestrial broadcasting guy.
