Chaz Saunders was fired?

Shit.

A bitch is so shocked my ass hit publish before writing a damn thing.

Chaz Saunder is an amazing radio voice and she has been fired...after 20 years...from Majic 104.9.

Budget cuts, my black ass!

Shit.

But I know Sister Chaz will be blessed, for she has been a blessing to many during her career.

That is the radio business for you.

One of two things happened:

1. The station is going to change formats in 2008.

2. She got a better job in a larger market and told the boss to kiss her ass - then got fired.

But here is what I think you should do.

Get satellite radio. Yea I know - why pay monthly for something that is "free". Well let me tell you this, commercial FM radio sucks. Nothing but commercials.

On Sirius satellite radio, I have TWO NPR stations! And I also have TWO international channels! One channel (world radio international) features all kinds of stuff from all over the world - not all of it in English (but most is). For example, if world radio international has Radio Korea on, there will be a commentator / DJ speaking English, but the music is all in Korean. And you learn to speak a few words and phrases. Cool stuff.

The music channels are 100% commercial free. There are something like 60 music channels to pick from (if not more). I got a top 40 hits station, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, new wave, three or four country stations, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville radio, the Elvis channel, a few R&B channels, a few hip hop channels, gospel channels, classical music channels - you name it I got it (except an all polka all the time channel).

All in all, I think it is worth it.

"You only hear the white on the radio and you hear the color once in awhile. And it's not that the white the white is any better but they've got control of the dial, oh yeah, they've got control of the dial.

It's an unjust world it's a racist world when you only get to hear one kind of sound, it's an unjust world an ethnocentric world, but we're gonna bury that in the ground, oh yeah, we're gonna bury that in the ground!"

Being in Alaska, I have never heard this woman, who sounds to be indeed a joy to listen to. Being the mother-in-law of a California radio personality, I know that there are more and more stations owned by Clear Channel and all running the same show at the same time. National personalities rather than local. Not my idea of a good thing, at all.

No way!

I had no idea!

I love her!

In the past I have not listened to radio muc it seemed like just noise to me. But recently, I have been listening more and I am wondering besides hip hop where all the black music has gone. Used to be you could listen to some really R&B jamms from the past that were awesome. Now I can't find anything. The slow silencing has begun. It is as if hip hop is the only option for blacks. Hip hop does not speak for or to all blacks. Blacks better start buying up some stations. I was watching a show where they said it cost 200 million dollars to buy one. Damn that is a lot of money. Anyone out willing to give a sistah a loan?
