Toilet Ratings

Post by WOHO » Fri Oct 22, 2021 2:26 pm

Toledo ratings rolled-in, less the R&B stations and the two stations in the 107 range, and it's pretty amazing:
Both K-100 AND the River got EXACTLY the same 12+ numbers as they did in the August, like they did a cut-n-paste!
92.5 stayed parked. WRQN and WIOT swapped positions. WJR doubled their numbers, that being said, they still draw the same as listeners in Toledo as the Ann Arbor NPR station WUOM, which is double the numbers the clustercluck 98.3 draws. Technically "no shows", skidding off the charts, for WCWA and WTOD-FM if you go by the old 0.4 cut-off number. So no big surprises other than the limbo- "how low can you go"?

In unrelated news, still no activity on 1520AM since the purchase and recent 'silent STA' request.

I'm stunned nobody is listening to the awesome sports stations in the summertime. Tune in one and you'll get endless national basketball diva talk, tune in another and you'll get a Mud Hens game if you're lucky, moronic gambling talk if you're not

Curious as to where the Toiletto NPR/ancient-on hold music station ranks. Then curious about all the "Godly" hate stations did. We may never know, since none of those subscribe in the market.


Something to think about- Just because I point out that you cannot do your job properly and appropriately, does not mean that anyone is calling you a bad person. However, you tell the world that you are a bad person by denying that you cannot do your job.

Our NPR station is so fucking bad. If you want classical music there are a million other places to find it, instead we get hardly any NPR news programming. I remember working the night of the 2016 election and they cut off NPR's coverage to go back to music before the election was even officially called.

Either way, it's antiquated music. Historians love it, but it is no longer valid for the modern free thinker. As for how "We're Getting Toiletto Educated" on a lower frequency, I'm just curious as to how many cling to old-world music, where females could not vote, blacks were slaves, and anyone "different" got stoned to death or dunked.

One cool thing WGTE does do is the Friday night EDM show. I've never heard anything like that on any other NPR station anywhere.

91.7 in Ann Arbor, 89.1 in Ypsilanti and 101.9 in Detroit all carry more NPR programming, although 89.1 and 101.9 come in staticky in Toledo.

Yeah, who needs an EDM staton, when you can have a few hours of EDM. This coming from EDM station management.

Let's not even think about chain processing for EDM, as the minimal processing automatically lifts the bass and drops the mid and highs, making tinny Dance hits. You really get the real effect on an outdated elevator music station, that you can have on the real thing. But at least they use digital equipment, so it sounds clean. Hope they change the processing on or in the automation.
