With the arrival of FM, on demand, as well as CD, radio DJ's began to stand out from their colleagues, and their station. Suddenly, a radio DJ could talk about a new album or gives an overview of upcoming events. This was a turning point for music radio. People began to realize that they had an option besides just plugging in a disc every so often. They had the power to choose who they listened to on their radio, and what they were saying about it.
Today, the world of music radio is vastly different. Instead of standing up on that microphone, a DJ has to know how to play the part of a song that will fit the words that the song was written for, and what beat should be used to accompany it. This is all made possible through the Internet, and through the introduction of HD radio. HD Radio can bring a song to your ears better than any CD or radio can, and is a standard in many countries now. Music radio in the twenty-first century has come a long way, and we're all hearing more of it every day.
