I banned Taylor Swift today
 
...OK not ALL Taylor Swift... although I'd like to... but I did ban her new song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Nashville goes a little more pop every single day and this one is so bubble gum teeny sweet blinding sugar high bullshitfest that I couldn't see adding it to my stations playlist and keeping any semblance of respect from actual country fans. So naturally I did what any decent Program Director would do... tested it in front of a live listening audience.

The results were staggaring. 98% "don't ever play it again," 2% "I like it." The nays win. I posted on the stations facebook today that we appreciate your opinion more than anything and we're listening... Taylors new song will "never ever" be played on this station again. Our facebook has blown up today with responses... positive to about the same percentage and we've gained 52 new "friends" simply for NOT playing a song LOL.

The best thing is that our in market competitor posted that "FTR we are playing Taylors new song because we believe in letting our listeners decide for themselves" and half the posts on their page are in support of us or just generally trashing Taylor and the song. Thanks for the added attention and support cross-town dumbasses. LMAO

I realize not many of you probably care about this but it's made my day. It's the first time in 22 years in radio that I've banned a song. I should do it more often.

*shit thread*
**DJF sucks**
***and not a shit was given***

tl:dr Taylor Swift blows... and not in the good way

I respect you more if you're actually serious.

Way to kill a target market.

That kind of stuff is why I don't listen to country anymore. A fiddle buried in the mix of a pop song doesn't make it country, people.

heh, i think we have had this discussion before...

If Swift had "happened" back in the 80s' she would be a pop star. Country Music has become a safehaven for pop performers who would not get played anymore because pop music has become so fragemented accross different genres.

She's the tall, skinny homely one who sounds like she can't sing without a studio. She did an awards show a couple years back and I couldn't believe she even made it past Randy Jackson.

I'm not targeting home-schooled 12 year olds. Win.

Don't think I'll bother to find out what she sings, thanks for saving me the trouble.

There's not even a buried fiddle in this. It's pure pop and pure bubble gum. And debuting at #11 on the country charts next week.

She may not sing for shit, but she sure is easy on the eyes

I bet it would be popular if you banned Justin Beiber. He seems to generate a lot of hate.

Did you ban Randy Travis last week?
