Radio's new no-format format.

[Rewrite 04/08/05] They're calling the new stations "Jack" or "Doug," and they're saying they play everything. Not exactly true. It's really just the latest Top 40 mutation. Every day brings a new guy-name station somewhere. Here's today's--it's called "Fickle." It's IPod Shuffle radio. Or at least that's what they want you to think. It's just bigger playlists, but I'm betting there's a research-crazed programming doofus scrambling around behind the scenes. Radio's cracking up. Can chaos be far behind? Or should I say KAOS-AM-FM?
