I mean did it really? Economically, sociologically, following a technologically deterministic pathology? Necrosis didnt ask for a stimulating discussion. Let's break down the effect of a technocentric societal model as it pertains to the obsolescence of previous entertainment media.

so many bigs words I don't know

But it's tricky. Doing a quick scan of things, apparently newspapers tried to rival radio and kill it, but that didn't work. When video came in, I guess it gave images that were used by radio, ie drive in theatre (which btw is also getting driven out for the most part). I feel like radio variety has decreased since I was a 'kid' (sub ten), but that could just be weird memory stuff.

I would say talk shows and AM stuff is probably in main use, but then I remembered audio books and podcasts. I mean even though podcasts have been around for a while, Serial came in and bulldozed everything in its path and almost had a kind of "War of the Worlds" impact where people were just floored.

So I'm not sure if TV killed the radio, but Satellite radio, bluetooth, and podcasts (and audiobooks) are doing a very good job of killing FM/AM band radio.

Economically: Nope. Plenty of labels, artists, and stations still make a killing off of radio music. Mostly country because A. country radio listeners have crazy station loyalty, B. it's popular, and C. in the regions where it's massively popular the states are huge, meaning a lot of driving, which means being in a car instead of somewhere you can stare at a screen, so radio is still important and viable there.

Socially: Mostly. Some people still talk about what's on radio, but for most people any social interaction or discussion regarding music stars revolves around videos or concerts or CDs or something similar, not radio.

Following a technologically deterministic pathology? Not really. Just because new technology comes out doesn't mean it's going to destroy the old. Again, in certain environments and for certain applications, radio is just as if not more viable than video. Radio can adapt to the times too, look at internet radio, or things like Spotify and Pandora.

Sometimes new technology can be a dramatic swing-and-miss, too. MP3 players looked like they were going to be bulky, overpriced junk that nobody used over their Walkman or pocket radio, until Apple came along and made the iPod, which was simple enough for the lowest common denominator to use, small enough to fit in your pocket, had a ton of space - for the time anyway - and had a much easier method of uploading music than manually transferring each file, as well as of editing the song info. If that never happens, it's not unreasonable to assume that CDs are still king and MP3 players never take off. And if that never happens, digital music never takes off, which means a much different world for the music industry.

As unstoppable as the march of technological progress is, trying to apply a deterministic view to it is a fundamentally flawed proposition, because technological is such a volatile, unpredictable thing.

Breakdown of the effect of a technocentric societal model as it pertains to the obsolescence of previous entertainment media: Stop using buzzwords you don't know the meaning of to sound smart.

Happy now?

I am still baffled that Zac Brown is making so many videos. I rather watch videos about him and the music and music tips than a video for a song he wrote. Maybe I am alone on this but videos are just lame now and even back in the MTV days they were pointless. I only bought into it because of the age I was at. I have become much wiser since then.

Music videos have been dying for the last ten years while radio still is going stronger than people give it credit for.

But the one thing I can't stand is the term "free radio". Whatever! That is their counter to Satellite radio.

They do not need to worry for XM was cool at first but people like me realize we are paying to listen to music for more than what we would pay for all the albums they play.

well, i mean it is pretty much as free as you can get. So, I'd call it free radio.

sometimes it seems like music videos still get made because a good chunk of people youtube a song just ot listen to it, instead of watching the video. unless it's Sia. or Ok Go circa whenever they were relevant
