Great, Now I can find out about more songs sung by Raven that I don't want.
The first time I hear Radio Disney was when I was driving up to Pasadena. We expected Disney music. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It has to be the same idiots that I can hear on my own radio station at home. Disney should realize by now that they need some new material
Why because they have been playing "Who let the dogs out" for 5 years?
Radio Disney is never going to play real Disney music non-stop. In all honesty, a radio station like that wouldn't survive. The whole idea behind the kids radio format is to slowly ease the youngsters into Top 40 radio..so the songs played are going to be Raven or other "innocent" popular artists (allthough Raven really isn't a *popular* artist, she more or less lucked out that Disney keeps funding her record career despite no sales what-so-ever). My only problem is the lack of vareity on the station. They need to rotate the songs better and play more artists than just the Disney-label rejects like Myra, Raven, etc..
Ah, c'mon, don't you love the "Hamster Dance" playing every hour year after year?
Ohgod, they're STILL playing the Hamster Dance??? Are they still playing "We Like To Party" by the Vengaboys too?
When I still lived in Staten Island NY, "Radio Disney" really was was my radio station of choice. Raven wasn't on the scene yet and I can deal with some Backstreet Boys, Aaron Carter, 98 Degrees, etc....stuff that actually WAS popular (actually, I hadn't listenen to Top 40/pop stuff since the mid-late 1980's and all of a sudden it was the late 1990s, I was in my 30's and I knew the songs that the teeny boppers were singing!). Plus they played 1 or 2 Disney tunes every hour (lots of Mulan...I think it was just been released on video?), and if I stayed up really late, I'd hear them play stuff from classic non-Disney movies, like The Sound of Music (my #1 all-time favorite movie).
I also admittedly enjoyed Just Plain Mark & Zippy...anybody ever find out what the story was with their begin fired and/or what happened to them afterwards?
Then we moved to Tampa and they didn't have a Radio Disney for the longest time. And when I finally DID hear it again, it was WAY too different for my tastes. And that was the end of that. Pity too, because now that we live in Orlando and Central FL currently doesn't have an oldies station (my favorite gendre of radio music), I probably WOULD listen to Radio Disney agin, if it played stuff I had any remote interest in hearing.
Well...until I get my XM receiver for Christmas .
Ha ha - thank you Bill! I thought I was the only one who caught onto that. When I first heard the "Hampster Dance" years ago, my initial thought was "why are they playing music from Robin Hood?"
We've never gotten Radio Disney here in Baltimore, but I have listened to it on occasion when we would be on vacation. Never liked it and always hoped they would play more classic Disney. Yet I'm not naive enough to think that such a station could survive in today's world.
Mmm... a Broadway showtunes and Disney music radio station - I would be in heaven!!

Oh Sharon I've been hooked on that station for over a year now. I'm glad they've updated it to reflect the current shows, though I do miss Little Shop and Hunter Foster.
Darn...though I was gonna hook you in to something you didn't know about . Ah well...better that you already know...you've had a year to enjoy it already!
