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.

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

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

Taylor Swift is talented and I generally like her music. But if her new song is crap, don't play it and stand by your decision. As a program director, you have the responsibility to program to your audience, not to whatever dreck Nashville or an artist puts out. From what you've said, your audience agress. If they want to hear it, it's available on itunes.
Too many times big music pushes talentless pretty boys/girls down our throats and that limits the amount of airtime available for those with talent. I applaud your action.
Now, play us some Ronnie Dunn or AJ.

Another thing I'll say about Taylor Swift...she has "moxie".

Here she is, on stage at an awards show, 16-years-old, singing her song called "Tim McGraw", with Tim McGraw sitting in the front row.

I don't get the hoopla. Yes, it's got the musical construction of a Twinkie. Yes, the lyrics could've been written by a chimp on Ridalin. Yes, the chord progression makes the five notes in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" sound like Beethoven. But, yes, it's also no different from the 5,000 pop songs that have been written in the past 30 years. I can turn on the "Today's Music" channel on my local radio and hear songs as equally shallow in both music and lyrics. It's her target audience, fer crissakes. I'm not expecting her to sound like Metallica reborn, or the second coming of the Brian Setzer Orchestra, or anything but what she is: a pop-music teen-star with a bit of a country edge.

Carrie Underwood has real talent. Unfortunately she has started putting out popped up garbage too. I hate that real talent gets lost in this shit.

I'm not arguing that she is getting phat paid making shit ass music. I'm arguing that she doesn't have real talent. I have been from the beginning.

In all honesty I don't think I've ever heard a Taylor Swift song,well I may recognize a song just wouldn't know it's her from Carrie Underwood.

You're not missing much. Vastly overrated.

Songs are okay. Nothing great. Not bad.

People thing she's way hotter than she really is. Looks like a blonde Olive Oil.

I don't get the appeal of Carrie Underwood at all, other than eye candy. Give me Miranda Lambert over that manufactured pop/country act any time.
