It’s taken an awfully long time, a failed format change and an unfortunate failure of their AFL coverage, for 2CA to realise that in order to get people to know that you exist, you have to tell them that you exist.
2CA have launched a competition in conjunction with The Canberra Times to find “The Best Songs Of All Time”. Admittedly the list will be skewed towards 2CA’s target demographic and be more likely to feature older songs than newer songs, but for my taste in music that is a good thing, and we’ve already got plenty of lists skewed towards newer music on some of the more youth focussed FM stations.
The final list will be published in The Canberra Times on Thursday, and counted down across the upcoming long weekend.
Sadly some people just can’t accept that not everything is aimed at them, and even whinge about them after leaving town. It seems that Capital Radio Network hater Johnboy from The RiotACT can’t even ignore The Canberra Times or 2CA now that he is hundreds of kilometres away. Instead he is trying to sabotage the entire promotion by getting as many people as possible to submit a vote for a band that very few people have ever heard of, it might be a good band, but the fact of the matter is that most people have never heard of them, which is a stark comparison to the bands 2CA will be likely to feature.
I’m no fan of the local ABC radio station, or the music they generally play, but if they were to run a similar competition I certainly wouldn’t try to sabotage it…I would ignore it as much as possible and probably mumble about it under my breath…but there is no way I would try to sabotage it…but then again, I don’t post when I’m drunk.
Back to 2CA for a moment though, it’s good to see them advertising their product again, hopefully they will continue to do so as they are, in my opinion, an awful lot better than their nearest rival station, Mix 106.3. I’m glad that more people will have the opportunity to experience it now that they have been alerted to the presence of 2CA.
And for those of you who are wondering, 2CA are 1053 on the AM dial.
