The Los Angeles Daily News takes an interesting look at Radio Disney Country in a new article by Richard Wagoner. The author is one of the first to raise the issue that the stations us of ID’s is designed to “mislead listeners” and he questions, “it almost seems like they are faking it, so to speak, to make it seem more popular than it is. Again, this is just a hunch, but I cannot think of any other reason for the misleading IDs and the press releases touting the format being available on FM in Los Angeles.
