You're a Listener and you don't get it...
This is an extension of the endless/useless meetings that radio stations conduct. Radio stations have to have a meeting for everything. Handle it on the phone? No way, everything has to be face to face even though a simple phone call can cover all the bases.
Radio stations even have meetings to decide when to have meetings. It doesn't matter if you have to drive two hours to attend a 15 minute meeting... you gotta be there or nothing works! Use the phone to ask a simple question? Are you serious? And if you think we're kidding... believe us, we're not. This stuff happens all the time. And then there is email... that's another subject for later.
Radio stations are in the business of communication.... but internal communication is just about as bad as it can get. It's a wonder that anything actually happens due to the number of meetings that take place and the subsequent TOTAL confusion over what was actually said at the meetings. It's truly amazing.
