Radio Stations get money by having commercials.

I doubt that. DJs get paid a pittance dude. A friend of mine was a DJ on a 50,000 watt FM station here for like 6 years, and he never made much money.

XP is supposed to stand for eXPerience, as Microsoft Experience Professional, Experience Home, Experience Media Center...

the 5 in A-5 i'm assuming comes from the fact that it looks like an HK MP5... the A could stand for like "Air System" or something... since the MP in MP5 means "Maschinepistole"... or it could mean "awesome"

I prefer .223 over .68

now THAT's hard to believe.

when I get out of here, I'll be fighting tooth and nail to land a job, and I'll be lucky if I make 32K a year to start.

Anything less than that would reeeeeeeally suck.

now  there is a guy on the morning show i listen to that makes 360,000 a year     so you just have to be popular  (only jewish DJ I know of and he has the support of 95% of the jews in Atlanta) and you have to do the right thing on the radio  but i do know what you are saying   they are definately underpaid  despite how easy their jobs might be
