A few good reasons not to forget about Generation X

Posted On October 17, 2019

Stuck between the once-mighty Baby Boomers and the front-running millennials, Generation X is often considered the Forgotten Generation. Earlier this year, however, they went from just being considered forgotten to actually being forgotten: Smells like Disrespect. But thankfully not everyone has forgotten about us. recently compiled a list of stats that show Generation X still has some pull in the marketplace, even if CBS News wants to pretend we don’t exist. Consider: Thirty-one percent of total U.S. income is earned by Gen-Xers. Fifty-five percent of today’s startups are founded by Gen-Xers. Gen-Xers outspend all other generations on housing, clothes,… Read More

What we’re blaming millennials for this week: saving too much

Posted On October 10, 2019

They’re entitled, we said. Self-absorbed. The products of participation trophy culture. But now millennials are frugal? Citing research from Raymond James, noted that millennials might be to blame for slower economic growth. Raymond James analyst Travis McCourt cited the rise of the U.S. personal savings rate — 8.1 percent this August, as compared to 5.7 percent in 1996 – as having a “disinflationary impact” on the economy, stagnating growth. McCourt chalks this up to a “generational change” after the financial crisis of the previous decade. And so now, we’re apparently blaming millennials for saving too much. Perhaps if college… Read More

The Spirit of Radio: Content is still king in the digital age

Posted On October 9, 2019

What does it take to run a successful radio station in the digital age? Even with a wealth of technological advances and a growing variety of platforms, one successful local station owner says the answer is the same it’s always been: Content is king.

Sullivan will tell anyone who listens – and a lot of people listen to… Read More

Posted On October 7, 2019

When Sean Sullivan took over 106.5FM in 2007, the economy was in terrible shape. Sean saw an opportunity to build a radio station that served listeners of southwest Alabama in a way no other talk station was doing at the time. Today, due largely to Sean’s and his team’s tireless efforts, FMTalk 106.5 is a key ingredient for information and entertainment in Mobile and Baldwin counties and beyond.

Keeping a funky beat takes more than talent, it takes hard work and perseverance

Posted On October 2, 2019

What’s more important to success? Talent? Or hard work? Obviously, that may depend on what you’re trying to be successful doing. For a musician like Stanton Moore, drummer for the New Orleans funk band Galactic, we might assume that talent would be king, that how far he is able to go in his line of work would be largely dependent on his skill at his craft. And according to Moore, we would be wrong. In the latest episode of “What’s Working With Cam Marston,” Moore credits hard work and perseverance with getting him where he is today. “I do believe… Read More
