STOP OVERPLAY ON ALTERNATIVE STATIONS!
Target: WZZN-FM Chicago Music Department, music departments of various alt-rock stations
Petition Background (Preamble):
We, the alternative-rock fans of Chicago, IL and other metropolitan areas, have become greatly disappointed with our alternative-format stations. I started listening to WZZN-FM, a Chicago alternative station last year. Why? Because it wasn't a pop station so I figured it would play a wide variety of songs in a night set. Recently I have noticed that the stations excessively play the songs that are making it big on the charts, or the "hot" songs, which we are all getting sick of. For example, I once heard "By The Way", by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, 3 times between 10 p.m. and 3:30 a.m. That's the same song 3 times in about 5 1/2 hours. And frankly, my fellow music fans and I are getting really f---in' sick of it. We propose that a limit should be set on the number of times a certain song is played per day, more attention is paid to independent, unsigned artists, and that a wider variety is put into the nightly playlists.
We, the undersigned, wish to propose several amends to the music playlists on alternative-format stations. We ask for a limit on the number of times a certain song can be played in one day, more attention be paid to unsigned or independent artists, and that the playlists have a wider variety drawing from all eras of alternative rock. If you are a fan of alt-rock, punk, metal, or just music in general, you will be doing your fellow fans a great service if you sign this.
