Radio stations

Why do radio stations in the RDU area suck so bad? The station that I listen to the most, 96Rock is the least offensive, but still annoys me. Why is there no station that will actually play new Rock music? I enjoy Led Zeppelin as much as the next guy, but that's why there is a classic rock station. Today, I actually sent a note to the program manager @ 96Rock because I'm tired of Van Halen (or the solo careers of Roth/Hagar). For example, check out today's playlist from midnight to 10AM.


12:07 AM - Van Halen Unchained
1:17 AM - Van Halen Take Your Whiskey Home
4:08 AM - Van Halen Everybody Wants Some!!!
5:29 AM - Van Halen Oh, Pretty Woman
7:48 AM - Van Halen Jump
9:08 AM - Sammy Hagar There's Only One Way To Rock
9:54 AM - Van Halen Dancing In The Streets

I mean come on, there's new singles out there from major bands that I've never heard on 96Rock. Example, Linkin Park's new album hits tomorrow, and they haven't mentioned it at all. And forget hearing any small/indie bands. Maybe it's time to finally get XM....
