He is horrible. I've heard him on the sports monster. I love the show on Mon, Wed, Fri when Kenny and Bobby are on, but on Tues & Thurs, I refuse to listen to it.

He is a jackass. He is the most disagreeable person I've ever heard on local talk radio. If you've ever seen him, it's hard to believe that he ever played a sport.

He may be disagreeable, but that is part of what makes him good. I don't always agree with him, but he is direct, and has strong opinions that are usually accompanied by thoughtful and logical defense of that opinion. Although I like Kenny, he seems to be more concerned with yucking it up with Bobby, and whispering with Bobby (into the mike unfortunately) while callers are talking. The Monster made an enormous upgrade when they brought Bobby to the station. He is clearly the most prepared and professional host on the station. I usually listen (when I can) on the mornings when Bud is on, and listen to ESPN radio.com the mornings Kenny is on. In addition, in relation to the actual inital topic of this thread, I do think Bud could expand the depth of music he plays on QUT, What I don't know is however, how much control he actually has over what is played.

As far as what Bud plays,give the guy a break. He works at WQUT which means he has to conform to their official daily playlist: Freebird. While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Freebird. Hotel California. Freebird. Bohemian Rhapsody. Freebird. Stairway To Heaven. Freebird. The Boys Are Back In Town. Freebird. Highway to Hell. Freebird. More Than A Feeling. Freebird. Slow Ride. Freebird. Cat Scratch Fever. Freebird. Magic Man. Freebird. Cheap Sunglasses. Freebird.

DJ's have nothing to do with what is played, and have not for a long time on 99% of ALL terrestrial radio stations! The songs are programmed into a computer and the computer plays them. The DJ's have no purpose other than to cue in commericals and waste time with inane chatter. No wonder terrestrial radio is dying, since all "classic rock" stations are the same, all country stations are the same, all "modern rock" stations the same, etc. Check out Satellite radio....it is AWESOME!!!

Man, you hit the nail on the head. This station still thinks it's 1979. I can't believe anybody would ever still listen to this crap.

Since you feel so strongly about it, you can always address your opinion to the station's program director. Just go to their web page www.640wxsm.com and click on the "about us" tab to find their contact info. It's better than complaining on topix which accomplishes absolutely nothing besides getting positive or negative feedback from others. Don't forget you always have the option of simply not listening if you don't like what you hear.

HA!! I guess Bud or Geri George took time out to rate my post negatively. I would tell them to listen to Tom Petty's "The Last DJ", which slams terrestrial radio, but i am sure they never even heard of it!! If people like regular radio, with its same songs/same bands, 20-25 minutes of commercials & inane chatter per hour, & fake (yes, FAKE) request lines, then hey, by all means listen to it! BUT...if you are a true music fan, check out Satellite radio! It is awesome!!!

there are plenty of other stations to listen to. there are also plenty of people who enjoy this station, but if you aren't one of them, then just turn the dial.

It was what's known as hot adult contemporary. Regional audience demographics and the almighty dollar are driving the station format changes. The house cleaning will result in DJ changes too as WQUT's Midnight Rambler was the first to 'retire'.

WKOS went from newer hip hop and rap and r'n'b to dull ass country music.

Makes sense though, they are slowly turning the tricities into a retirement community anyway... Changing it up to appeal to old people and old money to fuel their greed.

Wqut was one of my other favorite stations, but i don't think I can support them anymore.... But you know what, the rambler sucked anyway.

In the terrestrial radio world, all stations are the same: All "classic rock" stations the same, all country stations the same, all "modern rock" stations the same, etc. Zzzzzzz!!

First Bud could care less what you think..and I can say that for the other jocks at Cumulus/WQUT
as for Jess being so IN THE KNOW. I would like to know where this radio guru gets all this FALSE information.
Rambler is OLD and after you get a certain age, well, you don't HAVE to work anymore, and I'm pretty sure Mike doesn't really NEED to come to WQUT once a month for you idiots to put him down some more.
How about this. You all think you can do better, well, the station is located in Gray on Freehill road..go apply.
Let's see how GREAT you are.

LOL...well...isn't the WQUT/Cumulus employee quite sensitive to the criticism! If I were forced to guess, I'd have to lay money on this being the great Bud himself.

Dubya Tee Eff's post was spot on. Whoever you are, you can absolutely NOT deny that playlist. It's SO VERY TIRING. I've switched stations and haven't ever looked back. There are classic rock stations out there that "get" it. WQUT is not one of them. You guys are simply going through the motions with your music programming. I'm not belittling the things you do in the community, but even Bud, or whoever this is, has to agree...it's time to refresh the playlist! Music is king, man, and you're killing us with the monotony.
