Want to Choose Your Music? Listen to Spotify or Pandora

One of the attractions of radio is the element of surprise. Listening

to radio growing up, I always enjoyed not knowing the song coming up next, not knowing what the DJ was going to say next and hearing local events, news and weather.


Last week I had someone ask me why I play some novelty songs on Edgewater Gold Radio and that he'd rather hear the same familiar songs over and over. I politely told him to "listen to Pandora" if you want to choose your own music.



Edgewater Gold Radio's main purpose is to trigger that element of surprise and play all of the great songs that you grew up with in the 50's 60's 70's and 80's and also play songs that haven't been heard in a long time including some novelty songs like "Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda" by Alan Sherman. These songs were also on the charts.


Most radio stations have very short playlists consisting of 500 to 1000 songs. Edgewater Gold Radio's playlist is close to 7000. We don't have to stoop to the advertisers which gives us the ability to offer much more in the way of programming.


So before you judge what a radio station is doing, ask yourself, "do I want to know what's going to play?" Do I want certain artists to play?" Do I want a narrow selection or type of music to play?" If the answer to these questions is yes, then I would listen to Pandora or Spotify. If you want to listen to radio, then Edgewater Gold Radio may be the choice that you want to make.
