Awesome programming coming to Q106! Metalheads unite!!! :)

Post by MWmetalhead » Thu Jul 04, 2019 7:34 pm

I about shit my pants (in a good way) when I read on Q106's Facebook page that starting this Saturday (July 6), the station will be playing five hours of nonstop heavy metal every single Saturday evening from 7p to Midnight!!!

Usually, we're lucky to get one or two hours of heavy metal specialty programming a week on FM radio.

The fact Q106 is devoting five consecutive hours to the genre - in a non-graveyard timeslot to boot - is extremely ballsy! I LOVE IT!!!

The show is going to be called "Terry's Saturday Nightmare."

Wow... hopefully some classic stuff Like Maiden, WASP, Older Megedeth, King Diamond, and Pantera.


Cumulus, Please give Toledo a station like 96 Rock in Cincinnati or like X93.9 in Indianapolis. Pretty please!

WASP and King Diamond probably don't fit the mold, but there'll definitely be plenty of Pantera, Slayer, and Megadeth.

Those heavy tunes would never work on commercial radio as a viable format we all know that.

But.........it would sure be cool as an HD2 channel.

If i was WLLZ I would add this to my HD side and steal even more of WRIF's thunder.

Id name it Wounded Radio after the old Z Rock heavy music hour they used to have.

HD radio could take off it someone would add something worth listening to..........

Won't be able to get that up here. I guess I'll have to somehow struggle along without it.

You wont have to worry, playing Slayer on the radio in London is against the law I believe. :rollin

WBFX HD2 in Grand Rapids airs "Full Metal Jackie" from iHeartRadio on a full-time basis.

However, WBFX's HD signal struggles mightily. I've had trouble picking up the HD signal less than 15 miles from their tower site.

Virtually no one listens to WBFX - either the main signal or the digital side channels - in West Michigan. The station is a ratings doormat.

7pm-Midnight on Saturdays? A step in the right direction. Would be nice if they did that every night! I think it would be asking too much if they played it 24/7. But one can dream...

This is a good idea, and perfect for Q106. Let's hope the sales geeks can sell it.
