I had a similar experience as a teen.  I wrote a letter to WDKC, Albany
that was very critical of their programming.  I suggested that since they
were were losing in the ratings, and were programming as beautiful music
format along with five other stations in the market, that they liven up
the music.  My letter ended up being read in a staff meeting, to my
surprise, and the PD was very complementary of it.  They were unable to
incorperate the changes... but again, as a 16 year old, I was amazed.
