Malaysian Radio Stations

I might be the only one who thinks this way or I might not, but what's up with our local radio stations, why are they so useless? Have they lost the sense of being "Intelligent" and "Entertaining"? Every morning when I send my kids to school, we are trashed with repetitive music and deejays that speak nonsense, not to mention noisy and annoying.

Have they heard themselves from a listener's perspective?

JD and Dili on Mix FM for example, battles with each other like we need to waste our time listening to 2 non relevant persons speak their mind against each other?

Traxx FM's morning DJ, Scam Boy and his new on air partner, what's up with them? With their repetitive "You Knows" and "You Knows"? If we knew then why are they still talking?

Is that all these DJs can offer?
NOISE!
IDIOTIC TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION!
MAKING US LISTEN TO HOW THEY SOLVE OTHER PEOPLE'S DILEMMA?
BATTLING WITH PARTNER DJS ABOUT SOME STUPID RESEARCH ARTICLE AND CLAIMING IT TO BE THE PARAMOUNT OF LIFE (such as today's mix fm's "women prefer taller men" topic!).

Are the producers of these stations confused or lost for choices?

It's the morning drive!
Malaysian on the road are either driving themselves to work that is stressful enough or driving their highly influential kids to school...
We don't need NOISE!
We don't need STUPIDITY!
We don't need LOUSY LANGUAGE!
We don't need PEOPLE ACTING LIKE CERTIFIED EXPERTS!
We don't need crappy, noisy ADS!

The day I decide to give my iPod a rest, I'm hit again with the reality of why I gave up Local Radio Stations.. IT'S RUBBISH MATERIAL as Mr D. F. Gomez says it!

RUBBISH MATERIAL INDEED!!

* Parental Evolution

Evolution is a big word, one that can bring about a lot of good, especially in parenting. Many of us will agree that as years or decades go by, the generation coming along behind us, are changing so drastically in many aspects of human living. Behavioural changes in the young is so in tuned with our high-tech environment and thus brings about a generation that looks at life in a completely different aspect as compared to our days.

Many in my age are already parents and our kids are old enough to be influenced by this ever changing world. The question is, are we changing along with our kids to keep up with their world?

I seriously believe, we have to. At times it may seem like we have no choice, but in order to understand our children as they grow into being adults, we need to keep up in fact be a few steps ahead in time than they are.

This wasn't the thought of our parents, whose generation still survives amongst us. They grew older as parents who believed their kids should remain within their borders of life. Advancement in technology and lifestyle was immoral to many of them tho not all.

But being parents of this era, we need to consider evolving before our kids so that we can always be part of their lives and always share commonness with them to whatever age they become.

I don't want to ever lose touch of what is out there for my kids because I was too busy sitting under a coconut shell, or expecting my kids not to evolve with the world because I failed to do so. No I'm not talking about moral values, I'm talking about everything else besides that. Morality makes you a good person, one that no matter how one evolves, that can never change.

I'm talking about the speed life is riding on in matters of technology.

So don't lag behind and expect your kids to stick by your old school or you will end up seeing them as strangers in your own home.
