Q100 is like a party at friends house on a Saturday night. You bring the beer I’ll bring the records. Dynamo hum followed by an Arerosmith song. Just awful!

I want to support local stations but I just can't get behind them. Grayling needs their country station back...perhaps in the form of a DUKE FM.

The problem is that it is difficult to judge what reason the person bought the album for, and if it was for a specific single. And how you would then value the purchase compared to the single. Seriously, a lot of people have really odd perceptions of certain songs being hits. I asked some people what Bandleader Victor Tallarico's favorite Aerosmith song was. Of course it was "Dream On", but you can imagine the off color track that they thought was a hit. "Dream On" was a valid hit.

Rock 105 way out bills KLT and is only behind TM. Big Country does very well also.

KLT is quite stale IMO. How many times do I need to hear Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Foreigner, Kansas, etc.? Nothing against those bands but it's just the same stereotypical classic rock format.

I presume "TM" is WTCM.

I find it hard to believe that Rock 105/95.5 is the #2 billing radio station in NW Michigan. If KLT's billing is truly that weak, then clearly that station is being mismanaged and perhaps lost some top salespeople.

I do enjoy Rock 105's playlist.


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

KLT has no sales presence in the Northern counties like Black Diamond does.
