Im all onesty, regardless if radio stations have become more automated, there is one thing they still do, they play good music, no one complains about the music being played, and if people do, they do not understand how music rotation works, the top songs get a lot of air play, that is just how the music industry works, they may not like it, so then change radio stations there's literally 50 or so radio stations in the GTA. The automation is good for them, yeah there have been job losses but look around you, there's job losses everywhere in Canada too. So I would not blame Automation solely for this problem. Yes it needs to be tweaked and fine tuned, just because its kind of broken now does not mean it will be broken for ever, THINGS EVENTUALLY GET FIXED. Commercials are important part of our economy and industry, if people want to PAY to get rid of them, it might be good for the consumer, but bad for the business who rely's on advertising to attract customers. I might open a business and want to put commercials to attract new customers, but if everyone is watching Netflix and listening to Spotify, no one will hear my commercial, no one reads the newspaper any more, how are people gonna know I'm advertising? People will say over and over again the traditional model is broken, but in reality it worked just fine, the new model is broken because people are stuck up and say "oh advertising? that is not our problem that's someone else's problem now"
