Rowan Radio Is For Your Parents

I am a college student. I am a young, hip college student, so I want to listen to young and hip music. You would think that our very own college radio station, 89.7 WGLS-FM would cater to young and hip college students like myself, but that isn’t the case. That isn’t the case at all.

Here’s the fact- Rowan Radio caters to old people. Frank Hogan, the general manager of Rowan Radio, has stated that the average listener is 45 years of age or older. Why? I couldn’t be exactly sure, but it could have something to do with the fact that the only time they play rock and pop music from today, is from 11 p.m – 1 a.m. The rest of the time, they are playing music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. The last time I checked, the majority of college students weren’t even alive during these years. Ok, most of us were alive in the 80’s, but not until the late 80’s, and none of us even knew what music was at that age. Plus, the 80’s don’t count. Nobody listens to music from the 80’s. Everybody knows that.
