106.7 FAKE WHEELS is out of touch with its audience (shocking, I know)

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Mar 22, 2019 3:36 pm

From their FB page:
Just Announced: Ted Nugent will be at DTE on Saturday, August 31st. Want free tickets?
Enter to win: http://ul.ink/HXS0
Here are some responses posted by listeners:
“Ted Nugent concert” is just code for “KKK rally”
"I wouldn't go and see ole shit pants if you paid me."
"I'd rather have explosive diarrhea."
"Lol no thanks I wouldn't support a draft Dodger even if it was for free."
"I'd rather stab myself in the face."
"No thanks he’s a nut job racist and has had no good music or new music in Decades!"
"If I could smash his guitar BEFORE the show.... Remember, he called "Michigan" a "Shithole"?"
"Call me when it's Slipknot tickets."
"Would rather jerk-off with a cheese grater !"
"I'd rather have my fingernails ripped off, this piece of trash belongs in the city dump. He is and was always, a MORON."

GREAT JOB, 106.7!!! Clearly, you have your finger on the pulse of your listeners' tastes in artists.

Now, how about playing more "New Generation" sweepers into a Rolling Stones, Styx, Journey or Bon Jovi song? :x

What these commenters should do is get real. Has 106.7 deleted any of those comments yet?


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

Get real? I think the commenters are on point!

To 106.7's credit, the comments were left intact.

Now if they would just have the same animosity toward John Cougar Mellencamp's and Bruce Springsteen's LEFTIST Diatribes, I'd say it was even. They should ALL JUST SHUT UP ABOUT POLITICS that will offend half their potential fans. I give Bob Seger a lot of credit for KEEPING HIS MOUTH SHUT ABOUT POLITICS.

I agree.

Bruce Springsteen was an overrated artist in his day, I might add.

Dare I say the name of the even more obvious overrated artist from New Jersey? Hint 1: Hoboken. Hint 2: A One Man Cover Band. Not to say there weren't a few tracks along the way that were great.

BTW, the comments I quoted were on 106.7's FB page, not the comments section of the contest page.

All of the comments I quoted are still there.

Jon Bon Jovi? wait, he's from Perth Amboy, NJ... and isn't a one-man cover band...

To me, Bruce is the epitome of mediocrity. Some of his songwriting is good. Some is subpar. His voice isnt great and doesnt have great range. You always see him with a guitar bit often dont actually hear the guitar in his songs. Most of the decent guitar work was done by his bandmates. He would make an ideal country singer, as the same would all apply to them. But as a rocker, i just find him dull and unexiting.
