Cool FM 95.1 and 100.7

Post by Deleted User 14888 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 4:09 pm

Is it me or did CKUE add a bunch more Classic Rock to the Playlist, in the last week or so I have noticed a lot more Who, Zeppelin, Stones and more 70’s Classic Rock Artists, whatever they’re doing I hope they keep it up, they actually sound better than WCSX, my opinion of course.

Sure did notice the same. I personally don't like it. So much so it's lost its preset. This station is over due for a name makeover. Stop calling it Canada's Cool FM... Just sounds stupid. They should rebrand to "classic rock 951 and 100.7". Hell bring back "The Rock".

Variety hits should of stuck around but what do I know...

Here's the brain deads thinking at Blackburn.......

Lets copy the playlist of our sister station in London and not adjust our playlist to sound like a station like 106.7 the D that changed formats and was so popular in Windsor that it knocked off the Rock.

Let's NOT repatriate those listeners to 100.7.......


DuuuuHHHHHH !!!! :barf

Why don’t they break up 95.1 and 100.7 and have two separate stations, I sort of understand the 95.9 and 92.7 thing but the Cool FM thing not so much.

I dont think they can because it was supposed to a low power translater for the 95.1 signal that didnt cover Windsor very well from Chatham.

Blackburn also wanted to stop listeners of the local popularity of WMMS Clev.in the area which has a very good signal into Chatham across the lake.

I just wonder how long Blackburn will hang on to these stations, like how much money is being made, Bell is only making money with AM 800 and that’s about it.

Bell is a big conglomerate into not just radio but phones,and cable tv and internet.The radio side is just a writeoff in Windsor other than AM800.

Whereas Blackburn is just radio.i dont know much about their other formats but the programming of Rock in Windsor/Chatham has been a disaster.Why they dont allow someone locally to give it a try I dont understand.I would like to see Dave Lockbaum given the reigns to bring back a Guitarrock/Arena Rock format if he's still working for Blackburn.

Alot of cancon in this format that Blackburn doesnt see I guess.....BTO,Rush,Triumph,Trooper,Helix,Kim Mitchell,Frank Marino,Red Rider,Saga,Pat Travers,Heart,Sab Bach of skid Row,Sass Jordon.....etc.

Its really a no brainer..........

“Make Me Do Anything You Want” Great tune by Helix and the (Original) A Foot In Cold Water, both versions FANTASTIC Tunes, My Wife is from Canada and she turned me on to the tunes from both groups, I Know Cool FM played the AFICW version numerous times,

I take it you almost never listen to 100.7 ? :)

He's been doing afternoon drive there for a while. Not sure when he returned.

Yes....your right MW, I have left crap radio behind :barf

If he's back great I know he was off for awhile after the Rock gig.I like him and he's from this area.

Looks like a poor mans' version of WCSX with CanCon mixed in, windsor.

You're right, windsor. I'm not impressed at all by that playlist and miss the old sound of Cool FM.

Have to agree with u MW, they should have stuck to Variety Hits because in no way is that playlist stopping listeners from punching up CSX on this side of the river.If your Variety Hits there's a reason why your all over the place at least.

Here's the ratings killers just in that playlist alone..............
Rockland Wonderland....Kim Mitchell......cancon
Friday in Love ...the Cure
Teacher Teacher...38 Special
Your Love...The Outfield
Tweeter and he Monkeyman...Headstones........cancon
I Dont Know...sheepdogs........cancon

Here's what should have been inserted instead if u need cancon......why??? bc classic rock fans dont care about those songs or know them here.

Lunatic Fringe....red Rider
On the Loose ....Saga
Summertime Blues......rush
Go for Soda.....Kim Mitchell
Hold On.....Triumph
Fantasy......Aldo Nova
New Girl Now.....Honeymoon Suite
Deep Cuts the Knife......Helix

Just thought Id point that out, Im bored...........lol.
