It always amazed me that places like BAI and TxA didn’t get involved early in the Internet CDN business since that is what’s beginning to make their non-ionising radiation business obsolete.
BAI has 600 sites and lots have fibre into them so it would be easy to put routers in them for a CDN which would roughly mirror the population distribution. Telstra and Optus are also obvious CDN operators as well - alas stuff like CDN’s is completely beyond the exec’s running these shows.
If anyone knows what a Smooth FM song is these days, you’re doing better than me.
Smooth started off having a well-defined easy listening format. Now, it just seems like a station confused about what it wants to be. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve tuned into the station over the last few months, hearing the song being played and questioning “Is that really a Smooth FM song?”
it’s become like a 2020s version of what the old TTFM used to be, which was not too heavy and not too light. The sort of station you could put on in a workplace and not offend anybody. Which is not what it originally was but it has morphed into that.
