Elevators Everywhere Weep

101.9 FM in New York is no longer CD 101.9, the home of smooth jazz (music made by computers, for computers) but is instead now 101.9 RXP – The New York Rock Experience, which claims that it will focus on variety, intelligence and local acts.
Between the death of Jack FM (music programmed by computers) and now CD 101 (music written by computers) and the return and creation of rock-focused stations with DJ’s, this looks like a realization that radio is more than just playlists. Radio is about the connection between the music, the DJ and the listeners.
