Jim Adams used to do the morning show and got fired becasue his show stunk and they brought in David Paul. Now the are relaunching the station and were supposed to have David back for mornings and for some reason gave Jim an afternoon show.

Now here is the question: Since David Paul announced he was not coming back, why didn't Tommy offer the morning show to Jim? Answer: Because Jim has no talent.

2nd Question: So if that is the case, why the crap is he letting Jim do afternoons? If a guy has no talent, it doesn't matter what time of day you put him on his show will still stink!

WYXC used to sound great before they went off the air a year ago, but now no David Paul, no Glenn Beck, no Laura Ingraham, no Dave Ramsey, no Lars Larson? Their new programming schedule is going to be terrible.

Look at the radio ratings and you won't even find WCCV, WBHF, or WYXC. Other than South 107 the only stations with listeners are in Atlanta and a lot of them are suffering anyhow. All this drama and who cares? We'll all still be listening to station located outside of Bartow.

Bart: I respect your opinions, but my numbers were pretty good when I worked for WYXC (from 1986-1999 and 2005-07).
I just hope you give the new show a chance.
As far as ratings, Sarah - Arbitron does not really post ratings for small power stations which is why WYXC and WBHF don;t show up. Our streaming signal can be monitored though and that's what we use a s a gauge.
Again, I just ask that you give the new lineup a chance. I'm sure we will be tweaking this as time goes on.
As per Genn Beck and Laura Ingraham - Problems with the receivers prevented us from getting Beck. Laura's show will be heard on our weekend lineup.

Jim, I'm afraid your going to get burned on this deal. Tommy has a bad reputation around town and no one will give you guys the time of day. Unfortunately you will be guilty by association. I'd drop out of sight and wait for this thing to crash and then come back on the air with the next fool, I mean owner.

I will give Jim a chance to see how his show goes. I hope he does great and then I will continue to listen. As far as the rest of the line-up, who cares.

Jim really has an inflated view of himself. If his show had been any good why did they fire him and hire David Paul? All he talked about was his lame acting stuff, like anyone cared. Dave was very entertaining.

Thanks Ataway, I appreciate the chance.

Donny, I was fired because the owners were afraid I was going to quit. At the time I was pitching a screenplay in NYC to a large production company (still pitching it - it's a tough business).

Gene, I hear your concerns and have thought very hard about this decision. I'm in a better position than I was in 2007.

The key to a great radio show is to get a minority sidekick who laughs at your jokes. Then you can make offensive jokes because you obviously aren't racist/sexist/homophobic because your sidekick might disagree with you but can vouch for you.

Just saw on FBook where they have added a minority intern. He's a liberal Democrat in a solid GOP county. Of coure when you look at the lousy shows they are going to have, maybe he'll fit in.

HA! I think I know what liberal Democrat you're talking about. They're recruiting complete losers. Have fun with your little liberal WYXC. I can't wait till I get to hear Alan Sanders make fun of them on this one LOL.

Tis, did you just move here from Hooterville? No one with any intelligence would consider WBHF or this latest reincarnation of WYXC as quality. Both are amateurish and unprofessional.

as a long time resident and native of Hooterville, I resent that *G* As for the two radio stations. Are they Atlanta? no. The cartersville radio market is not exactly a gold mine I wouldn't think so it therefore doesn't take Don Imus to keep the locals informed about who died and what the local politicos are up to. WBHF apparently has a following and I know that WYXC will have one as well. Are you a radio person yourself or do you just know what you like and dislike?

i really grew into the classic broadcasts they had around 2007. Jim A.(who's returning) was with them at the time I believe. So far their programming seems to be weekdays with an alternate brand of conservative talk radio. they still carry the fox news radio format though. Rumor is they're going to do some weekend local shows and weekend infomercials through those hours. I listened to their radio message and it said they will replace the state network morning show with a local-call in show eventually. What will make or break them is surviving into fall and trying to get some highschool football coverage. They need some serious PR-fixes to get into that range.

I give this station launch a D, but I see some potential in it. They will either flame out quickly or develop a niche similar but diff. than WBHF's.

I believe Jim "Late Great" Adams was fired around the first of 2007, cause that's when David Paul started. That's when the station started getting good. Everything was smooth and first class. I have serious doubts about the new lineup, plus not having David Paul, and I have major problems with that dufus who's running it now. He's so negative about everything and always complaining about everybody. He's in for a rude awakening. The word around town is that he's going to be blackballed.

Wow. I turned the station on while running errands today. That was brutal! Sucks is an understatement. So I guess it's a contest between which sucks worse, WYXC or WBHF.

reality check: you guys will NOT make it to May 1st. Who wants to put money on it?

This is the WORST trainwreck caretersville media has had in awhile.

Tommy Young has no credibility and is hateful to everyone in the community

Jim Adams is a self-branded fool who pretends he matters with his "talent agency"

Dylan Patrick - is going to be an ON-AIR intern - a 22 thats right 22 WITH NO EDUCATION year old arch-liberal Democrat!

The only semi local worth listening to is Rusty but I'm going to pass because the station is just so poor. I don't want to support them.

Do you not realize how many politically aware ADULTS are avaible ya old coot? and you picked one of the communities biggest (and littlest) idiots!

No wonder david paul quit! LOL although I know it was for other reasons to - lke Tommy being a complete loser.

So who's taking bets on the station being down in May? I'm in!
