No Hits, All the Time
Re: What does "hits" mean? It's no more hits now!!!
Your idea of a hit isn't the same as music radio's idea of a hit. That's the whole
point. You might find a lot more "hits" on WFUV than on commercial music radio,
if that's the way you see things. A hit on radio is one that demonstrates audience
popularity as opposed to esthetic power.
That's the irony about mass-market music radio: it's hardly about music at all,
anymore! It's primarily about advertising dollars, with music just a tool to
achieve that goal.
