But why after 20+ years of allegations radio is dropping his music.

HBO broadcasted a documentary a few days ago.

So this is why radio is taking action on elimination of MJ on the playlist.

Yes.
Over dramatic.

It's all about getting attention.

Everyone knows these allegations are not new, but as I said, people need something/someone to fuss over at all times

When word gets out that the stations dropped him, people will tune in to "see for themselves". Boom, ratings go up.


then they will pull the old "hey everyone, miss Michael Jackson?, we will be the first to play him this week! Tune it at 1:50 to hear PYT!"
Then they will wait to play him till 2 pm, so the AQH goes up by everyone waiting that 10 minutes


It's kinda pathetic.

Correct. It's the outrage era.
Remember those stations that dropped Kayne that are all playing him again?
Pervert or not, I think he's played out and don't care if I ever hear him again.

Maybe Ian Richards should stop being a slacker and try that gimmick, instead of playing Michael Jackson right now on the breeze for like the 5th time today

I really enjoyed Kanye back in the day though.

Nothing recent from him is good though.

You have to wonder how they kept his voice from changing, and that's when this phase started. That kid was likely abused medically. Hormones do things, thats why they give them to transgenders. But it should not affect the J5 stuff, not that anyone other than 70s on 7 is playing it. And he seemed completely different then.

Now that he's not hear to defend himself

Post by Mike Oxlong » Wed Mar 06, 2019 6:21 pm

I was just talking with a family friend about something like this. It's now being said that a dearly departed uncle had been abusing a few of his nephews. Now that he's gone, one of the nephews has come forth.

Now call me the Asshole of the Year for saying this, I can take it. But the doggone dude isn't here to defend himself. I say (and I have said it to family members) if you didn't come forth while he was still breathing, just sit down and shut up now that he is gone.

Feel free to say I'm using my head for self proctology having the attitude I have about this, and the MJ docudrama that has come out.

I totally agree with you, MJ is gone so why is this an issue today, Just so radio can be PC that would be the only reason. And as Stopnswop stated earlier to garner some ratings.

Not addressing anyone in particular, but who cares?
