Part 2 of my conversation with special guests Nick Lorenzen and Mike Piantigini as we discuss the death of rock radio. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from The Henry Clay People, Archers of Loaf, Codeine and Los Campesinos.

Show notes:

- Radio now competes with iPods, digital radio, Spotify

- The anticipation factor with new music is gone

- Cell phone video has changed the live experience

- Music has become background noise

- We don't pay attention as closely to new music

- As people get older, some lose that connection to music

- Mike: Music education came from hanging out at college radio station

- Remembering the old Boston rock station WCOZ

- In praise of WFMU

- Nick: Listened to a lot of classic rock on stations like WAAF

- Satellite radio is a factor

- Jay: First listened to CHUM-AM in Toronto, then got into the FM rock stations

- Canadian Content Rule was in effect: Lots of April Wine, Chilliwack, Triumph

- Nick and Mike played in the great rock band Lump

- College radio is still great, especially WMBR, the MIT station

- Only Boston rock stations left are WZLX, WAAF, The River (WXRV)

- Jay: Pretty much listened to WFNX all the time during the '90s

- Younger music fans may not feel the loss of FNX

- Used to be fun to listen to radio in other parts of country

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
The Henry Clay People - Hide

Archers of Loaf - Dead Red Eyes

Codeine - Median (Peel session)

Los Campesinos - Tiptoe Through the True Bits
