From All Access this morning (WPFX has been sold)...

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Yeah, the previous imaging for the Wolf was entirely too tounge-in cheek.

I wish Toledo had an adult CHR too, but that won't happen.

Yeah, Q105 (or whatever the hell it's called) is a disgrace.

Losing to both 92.5 Kiss FM and 101.5 The River by a 4:1 margin or worse. Cumulus seems to have given up on the station.


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

Agreed about Q105 being a disgrace. I thought Eric Chase being added would bring ratings especially with his popularity on Kiss before Mojo was added. I think he's still a better fit than Denny Schaffer who's a bit "old" for the format. I think it's time to go back to the Star 105 branding and it's format prior to 2012 or try a soft AC format similar to the River of old.

"Q" can work. Toledo DOES NOT have what every other market has- "Upbeat hits/favorites throughout your workday." Q needs to up the dosage of Viagra or Cialis, to make the music upbeat. Because Detroit loves the ghetto hits, does not mean it works for young (not the youngest) adults in NW Ohio. MIX 102.7, Mix 96.7 and Majic 95.9 really don't sound as Ghetto. Kiss Toledo, Kiss Lima and Q all sound Ghetto.

Eric needs to be allot less concerned about podcasting. It's ratings are in the dump. Another point Cumulus needs to look at- Is voice tracking a primary slot, within the FCC guidelines of keeping a license? The EAS box does not give the most local info. Granted, the FCC only runs on complaints... but does Cumulus really want to chance it?

This point alone is good for 107.7. The adult audience WILL NOT stand for track recording, especially drive times. I'm hearing complaints of Fred
(WSPD) on Vaycay and having "the best of" shows, with no sub in that slot.


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.
