I can handle their faux pas as opposed to listening the bigger stations and "their way" of doing things. WLEW seems to be a "down home" station and is what is appealing for many.
Oh, they're very much "down home" and "mom & pop". I enjoy most of their rotation.
However, if they would just train their people, or hire people that could do the job properly, they would have a much better product. To me, it speaks volumes about the ownership of that station, and how they must believe they don't need to do any better for their listeners and advertisers.
WQON - 100.3 is the same way out of Grayling. To me, it has a great playlist that doesn't stick to the formula. I love listening to it. Check it out if you have a chance.
Notwithstanding, the ownership should know better than to use the liners, stingers and sweeps that are used. They're over-modulated, mispronounced, poorly edited and/or produced.
Although, it's always enjoyable to chuckle at what WLEW does.
