There will be plenty of coverage on Michael Jackson death from CNN and other news outlets. Let me say this, I'm appalled that only a few stations in the Springfield market play any Michael Jackson music. He made a huge impact on the music industry and deserves more respect than what he is getting in this radio market. Of course, you'll hear the old "Ozarkers don't like him." We as a radio industry need to quit trying to appeal to the local racist and appeal to music lovers.
I also would hope that the local message boards would have respect for these late great celebrities and delete any negative comments on these boards about them.
I would also like to see the flags fly at half staff for Ed, Sky, Farah and Michael.
Of course, opinions like these are what make me the SUPER-VILLAIN OF THE OZARKS!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
