ASK THE ARTIST IS RADIO STILL RELEVANT? WHY OR WHY NOT?
BEN ESKIN (THE RASIED BY WOLVES)
Yes, absolutely!! Since we live in such a digital age we tend to focus on this platform more than the older forms of music consumption. But we can’t forget that there are still millions of people worldwide that listen to the radio and that one fact makes radio extremely relevant! I don’t believe there is an artist alive that can say that they wouldn’t like to have each of those millions of listeners.
I think radio is still relevant. People still tune in to find new songs to listen to and it’s a cultural pastime to drive in your car and pop it on. The difference between now and 10 or 20 years ago is that now there are so many different mediums to discover music through. Because of that, artists can be popular and successful without ever being on the airwaves.
