According to this CNN story, listeners--and, most notably, young listeners--are beginning to turn away from commercial radio, criticizing it for being boring, homogenous and repeating a narrow playlist to death. (I dig the Elvis Costello reference in the story title, too.)
Shoot, I quit listening to commercial radio a long time ago for pretty much those reasons. I do tune in to one local station (92.3 WTTS-FM) on occasion; I think it sad that the fact this station shows even occasional touches of unpredicability should be so refreshing.
