1. The Rolling Stones have no need to do anything but rest on their laurels-and yet they don’t. Broadcasting can learn from this. Of course, The Stones aren’t a publicly traded entity and owe nothing to shareholders (do they?. While their recorded efforts recently have been a bit disappointing, their concerts still electrify the audiences. Many will buy this album in all of its varying forms just to say “they have it”, but we don’t know what it will produce. Stations have had problems trying to fit new material from Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr into their playlists, and the same may be true for this new Rolling Stones project. I hope I’m wrong. The Stones have been a blues/rock staple for half a century (except for “Country Honk”)-and in most cases they’ve stayed true to their roots. Would a station market itself as “the place for The New Stones Album”? Anyone? Anyone?
