New station to hate on now that Fault 106.7 is gone

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Mar 01, 2019 7:32 pm

I hereby nominate 94.7 WCSX as the primary focal point of our vitriol, with 93.1 Gnash FM serving as runner up.

Cannot fucking stand Dave Dahmer, boring Jerry Tarrants at night (the guy who hired Dave Dahmer), or CSX's ultra bright audio processing.


Memo to WGRD: You need to sound a LOT more like your phenomenal sister station in Davenport, IA.

Perhaps WCSX should change the format to Magic 94.7 and compete with The Breeze 98.7.

Pretty cool Def Leppard into Sublime into another Aerosmith song and wow...Green Day and then back to Skynyrd. It's the new generation right!

"We Built This City" may be ironically be the beginning of rock's long,slow decline.

Dahmer still on the air.....

....makes me question CSX management.

Either he’s got “something on someone” or their idea of a good air talent, just isn’t what most normal people think is “good”.

His delivery, cheesy made-up stories that (some) are internet based and “now that you’re smarter than you were two minutes ago”.......

.... yes, Dave, because now I’m smarter since you stopped talking and my brain cells came back to being awake.

CSX has now been on the air in Classic Rock format for 32 years. The program director must be doing “something” right or they wouldn’t be on and remaining as they are.

Yes there’s been changes, but like 106.7 is now doing, it’s an evolution.

Unfortunately with Dahmer, I think it’s going to be a de-evolution now that there is some real competition to be had.

Bottom line is this - CSX’s Program Director Jerry (JT) Tarrants, when he was still in Grand Rapids at GRD, hired Dahmer for afternoon drive there. JT got the job at CSX and Dahmer, IIRC, got a job somehow at the 1st incarnation of 106.7 The D. Dahmer lost his job there after a format change but then got hired for weekends at CSX. Got promoted to full time evenings and now afternoons

I listened to Dahmer when he was at GRD. Downright creepy voice and delivery. I question how such an oddball ever made it to a major market. Must work for real cheap

I got my ass in some trouble on one of the old boards, way back in the day about WCSX. Never been a big fan, but at one point, they were considering Huey Lewis classic rock. Sort of like the old CD94.7 in Chicago.

However, 93.1 needs to go variety hits IMO. 3rd place should be WGPR.
