107.3fm Cleveland

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.

107.3fm Cleveland

Post by 1027BrianFM » Wed Feb 15, 2017 3:40 pm

I haven't really heard The Wave in a long time, One of the only stations I know of that is still doing some variation of The Smooth jazz format. I haven't seen ratings for this station in a long time, wondering kind of where they stood in the market.

With the exception of a year or so its been The Wave for almost 30 years. It was also the 2nd affiliate of Z rock which only lasted briefly.

The last time I heard The Wave it was disappointing. There were far too many vocals for an SJ station. The pimply voiced guy in PM drive was atrocious, and clearly unqualified for a major market in any daypart. Voicetracking would have provided a more enjoyable listening experience. While I can't recall specifics, the local spots were bad too. Mundane, predictable copy over a dated music bed, with the usual cliches. It would have been funny if it were not so sad.

When they subscribed, they were usually in the low 2-share, high 1-share range 6+. I can only imagine how they're doing in the money demos. But they recently celebrating their fifth birthday and appear to be surviving while commercial jazz is dead almost everywhere else.

I agree; the station sounds like garbage.

Rubber City is incapable of doing good radio outside of its home base of Akron. Their track record in all other cities is abysmal.

107.3 in Cleveland sounds almost as bad as Rubber City's former cluster in Lansing.
102.9 The Hog in Milwaukee KICKS ASS!!! Love the 90's weekends. (The playlist during the work week is damn good, too!)
