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.

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.

Even as a 35-year-old man, I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a fan of hers. I heard the new song though and didn't necessarily like it. I can certainly see what you're saying about the pop thing.

In general though, I'm a fan. She's talented, genuine, humble, etc. She's a good role model for my daughters. She's self-made and not some record label creation, and I appreciate that she writes her own music.

All those qualities are pretty rare these days, so she gets a pass in my book.

No... but we play so little Randy (in gold rotation only) that it doesn't matter. We also didn't ban Hank Jr for hating Obama or the Chixie Dicks for hating Bush. We banned this one because it was in the stations best interest not to play it. 98% say so.

Good, I wish more stations did that shit.. The country stations in KC are not country anymore.. Hell, 94.1 is suppose to be older country but they never play it. Then when they do it is all same shit all the time..

Same with the old rock stations and classic..

I ****ing hate pop country.. Give me the 70s to early 90s for country artists.. same with metal and rock.. I also have a soft spot for 80s pop music when it is its own station..

FTR I like a handful or her songs just fine. Today wasn't about Taylor herself as much as making a point and a stand to satisfy our listenership. I love how it's working.

No worries. I only heard it once and was surprised...it's quite a bit different than her past stuff.

She jumped the shark so to speak. If she wants to give up country for pop then more power to her... I don't care. Just stop pretending everyone is too stupid to know the difference.

Its not her fault Nashville has become more Pop than Country.

She's on the verge of setting a new record for downloads for any female artist with this song. We're still not playing it.

As the population grows, records will keep getting broken... Mainly because all the retards keep having ignorant ass children that smile and use their food stamp money on the first flashy thing they see..

Same with music..
