Also, how many radio stations does HE own?

I'm sure he has enough scratch to buy a few and "practice what he preaches"
and let those DJ's do their ouwn thing!

What planet has he been on for the past 30+ years?  DJs haven't programmed
their own music since the 60s.  Do you think Bruce Bradley played what he
felt like on WBZ in their Top 40 days?

Just another celebrity pontificating on a subject he clearly know very
little about.
