Fault 106.7 appears to have one foot in the grave

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Mar 01, 2019 1:45 pm

A trade web site is reporting iFart has registered multiple domains for WDTW-FM containing "Wheelz" or "Wheels" in the name.

Hopefully, attempt number three at Classic Rock will be much better than the previous two, although I must acknowledge "The D" was fairly successful for a time. Then, nasally Alan Cox in mornings and Casey K. as PD ran the station into the ground.

Let's hope the Wheelz brand isn't dishonored if this comes to fruition.


Caroline Beasley is ruining WRIF. What a bitch!!!

Why does everyone have to steal names?
Where is creativity anymore?

But I have a feeling this format will do quite well.
It's about time CSX has some competition.

I wish they would bring back variety hits though instead

What I would really love though is a station that plays a mix of everything between the years of 1997 and 2011.

Yes that seems weird probably but it's something i've had in mind for a long time.

I liked The D 1.0, I will put it back on my presets if so. Alt is garbage.

They could use The Wheelz name and revert back to Variety hits

True, this could be a ruse too. Oldies might not be half bad of an idea.

Will advertisers actually be willing to pay to be on an oldies station in 2019 is the issue

Wheelz doesn't ring out as a Variety Hits name

Oldies out of the question, It will either be Active Rock or Classic Rock, We have all been in this Oldies discussion numerous times and all agreed on one thing advertisers don’t want to sell Oldies Formats especially on FM.
