Radio Station Cutting Songs Down To Two Minutes; The Radio Still Sucks

Posted by - 05:32 PM on 08/08/14
One of Calgary's radio stations is going to only play two minutes of songs -- to try and keep people engaged and get with the times.
"As we look to people’s changing habits and changing attention spans and watch people on their iPod listening to half a song and forwarding on to the next one we sort of came to the conclusion that maybe it was time to rethink why songs are the way they were." The format, called QuickHitz, uses songs provided by Vancouver-based SparkNet Communications.

I used to hate it when TRL would play 30 seconds of a video instead of the whole song.

If Kanye West announced this idea, AP.net would never stop praising it.

Kanye West understands and respects music, though? He also doesn't run a radio station
