Re: More Media overkill
Demographically true, in that he's not a top choice under 55. (He gets heavy
play on stations like WQEW in NYC, of course, but they aim for 55+. BTW, why
*doesn't* Boston hae a station that aims for that audience? Most markets
that size do, and we even have one in Albany. ) But he's *known* to a
younger generation. I'm 38, and growing up I sure heard Sinatra on WABC, not
to mention his appearing on the news and in the papers with regularity. So
he is cross-generational in the sense that 25+ would have familiarity with
him and with *some* of his music. But his best music -- the music that is an
integral part of his becoming a pop culture figure -- is essentially unknown
to the vast majority of those under 55.
