It’s an interesting subject.
On the www.radiodiscussions.com website in the US they were having a chat about Lite FM 106.7 in New York and somehow they got around to CHR stations - and this comment stuck out at me:
"Obviously compared to the mess that all these chr’s in this country sound like outside of a few who do their thing correctly like kiis in la, Z100 rules.
Take a listen to the Australian chrs fox out of Melbourne, kiis and Nova in Sydney, nothing in this country comes close."
I do listen to a LOT of US stations and their hit music stations are nowhere near as polished as ours… so sometimes it seems we don’t have to look far to find quality, it’s under our noses and we just don’t realise it.
