The NETWORK for The Core DJ Syndicated Radio Show
The entire music business is in a recession and the ultimate reason is that everyone is chasing money instead of chasing good music. Everyone is afraid to do "their thang", so everyone just follow suit and play it safe. That is why djs dont break album cuts, they just follow suit and play the "hot" or in my opinion "the not so hot" songs that everyone else is playing. Someone needs to stand up, be their own man and play what they feel is good music, not just what everyone else is playing. A&Rs need to do the same thing. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GO OUT ON YOUR GUT and sign someone you feel is hot. Dont just look at numbers and say "Well, since that song did good, ima try to find someone that has a song like that!!" FIND THE NEXT HOT SONG!!! But, like I said everyone is chasing money and afraid of losing their jobs so they just follow suit and play it safe. But if someone dont take a stand, people will lose their jobs anyway because the public is tired of the same old BS the record industry is giving them. Thats why the people dont buy records anymore. We need better music. We need DJs and A&Rs to find and break this music, dont just follow suit with whats out there, because the people dont like whats out there!
"I think Diddy is correct but a little off to the left. At the end of the day, a DJ can still and always will have the power to make or brake an artist or band, provided that DJ is a powerhouse like a lot of the Mainstream DJ's that are members of the "Core" family. You cannot take anything away from DJ's at all in my opinion, the equivalent to me is liken unto, disrespecting your chef; he's cooking the food you eat. Every entertainment exec needs D.J.'s to bring thier artist to the forefront. Without DJ's the industry would be worthless." On the otherhand, DJ's have become so arrogant, and thugs. A lot of DJ's fall in that catergory unfortunately. The facts are as follows: 1. Radio broadcasters NEED advertisers to make money. 2. Radio stations NEED to attract listners according to thier brand of broadcasting so they can get advertisers in order to make money. 3. DJ's need quality content in their aired programs 24-7. With that being said, we do need each other execs, radio, and artist. There really is no BIG "I's" and little "you's", we're in this game together.
