I just don't get how they're number 1. I guess the saying was right; when you lower your standards, you broaden your base.
There is something to this. McDonald's is the number one selling hamburger in the U.S. I doubt there is a epicurean out there that would put a McDonald's hamburger at the top of their list, but they're still number one for a variety of reasons.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

For the love of God, I hope he gives walking papers to Dahmer ASAP. Sounds so ill fitting on CSX

Why does the name Scott Jameson ring a bell? Did he work in Detroit or Toledo once upon a time?

Another question: did the lawn gnome (Jerry Tarrants) leave of his own accord?


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

Please, pretty please, with a goddamn cherry on top, let this mean that Dahmer will be gone soon. Couldn't stand him on "The D", can't stand him on CSX.

Also saw he had some AAA experience...no chance in hell he'll be able to use it, but it'd be nice...

Just do me a favor. Make a mention of the music. Just ONE fucking mention. Enough with this "the thursday afternoon edition of things you didn't know coming up in 11 minutes"
*poison starts*

When did the music become secondary on this station?

So, is this just another corporate yes man who will simply play "All the songs you've heard a million times"?

Tarrants has resurfaced in Kalamazoo at Townsquare Media's WRKR. He is hosting the station's morning show "The JT & Stefani Show" in addition to serving as Program Director.

Tarrants replaced Mike McKelly, who retired last month. McKelly also had Operations Manager duties for Townsquare Media's Kalamazoo stations. I assume Tarrants picked up those responsibilities for the other TSM stations in Kalamazoo.

Fuck me running.

My neighbor's cat could run CSX and it would be #1. And the cat has been dead for 3 years. Brand, name recognition...it counts for a lot. I just can't do Cinderella ballads and Great White all the time. Sorry.
