Listener longs for some magic on the airwaves
I just moved to Dubai from the UK (a couple of months ago) and am loving my time here. Brilliant modern city with loads to do. However, what is going on with the radio stations?
They are painful to listen to. DJs who obviously have never worked on air before and playlists that repeat and repeat the same songs over and over. Surely with the traffic jams, radio has a brilliant opportunity to capture an audience in a car. This morning I made the mistake of tuning in and was amazed at the pair on air who were “entertaining us” - rank amateurs at best.
I have spoken with colleagues who say the same thing - there are no decent radio stations here. Moving to Dubai is the best thing I have done but give decent radio - it’s the only thing I miss!
