WQEZ now WWMK... B&T coming back?

Post by fmdxguy5678 » Sat Oct 28, 2017 7:11 pm

So WQEZ's changing their format to "Mac FM", the "greatest hits of the 70s and 80s". Check out this press release! Bob & Tom are coming back up north as well.

WSRT 106.7 - You may have reached "The Peak", but you still struggle to climb the mountain of success.

Given the fact WCCW-FM doesn't reach Petoskey (not well anyway), Cheboygan, or the Straits, this is a good programming move - at least formatically.

92.5 the Fox FM probably comes closest to this new station from a playlist standpoint and more-or-less ignores the region served by 106.3. That said, the Fox FM is playing a lot of 90's and not so much in the way of 70's tunes these days.

It's interesting that the press release mentions Lite FM and the Fox FM by name. Looking at the artist examples, I do not believe Bob & Tom in mornings will prove to be a good fit. That is a female-friendly playlist.'

What the F? Who wrote this shit?
Some overpaid consultant who sold this company a great big bill of goods wrote:"the best of the very best songs—all Classic Hits-- from the 70’s and 80’s with varying tempo and played on air in a sophisticated rotation of the music to keep the sound of the station fresh and energetic."
Is this a press release to the public or justification to your investors why the station is changing? This will make some killer imaging... :barf

Ok - so I fit the demo they’re looking for. Looked at the playlist list examples they listed in their press release plus where they say there would be “no obscure songs”. Sounds to me that they may be the typical classic hits station with a 500-750 song burned to a crisp playlist

Bob and tom is a weird choice for that format. I kinda thought EZ might have been on its way out.

Nice to see classic hits come to the tip of the mitt, especially since 92.5 (and 94.3) has drifted toward "Insert Male Name Here FM" in recent months

B&T does indeed seem a odd fit here, but I can tell you (anecdotally, anyway) Omelette's triumphant return to NM radio was met with a response that was far from universal joy. (In other words, there were a lot of non-buzzboard posters who still enjoyed Bob and Tom)

...and listeners in the Grand Traverse region still have no over the air access to that show.

Black Diamond is at the limit. The only ownership group that isn't at the limit IIRC is Midwestern since they sold off 107.9 Charlevoix

Ok, WHY would you want Black Diamond to buy The Mitten?? Sure, let them f- up a format that seems to work here.

I think MacDonald can add one more FM.

106.3 has basically become quite similar to 97.7.
