I don't know how many of you out there listen to Joe B. on WFTG Monday through Saturday. He has the Swap Shop on mostly for the first hour which starts at 8:00. Then at 9:00 he changes the show a little, it is more fun to me, because I have nothing I want to Swap or Sell. On the second hour of his show, he has trivia, and little tests, and the listeners can call in and try answering the tests and trivia. I enjoy it so much.

In fact I had quit WFTG completely until I learned about Joe B.'s show, and I very seldom miss it. I was so disgusted when they started The Neil Borch (sp.) show. That man is the most unbearable talk show man I have ever tried to listen to, so therefore I had quit the Radio completely until someone enlightened me about Joe B.s show. I rate Joe B.'s show an "A" and the Neil Borch show an "F". I wish the WFTG management would get wise and cancel the Neil Borch show and extend Joe B.'s show another hour, they could have the Swap Shop an hour and one-half, then his Triva and just talking to us Listeners an hour and one-half.

I realize that WFTG is not going to let me do their programming schedule, but if they can't have Joe B. on for three hours, they could at least move Joe and Danny show back to 10:00 and move that Neil Borch person to 5:00 or whatever time they have moved Joe and Danny to, because I never listen to them anymore and don't know of a lot that does.

I hope you people out there will respond to this and let me know how you feel.

I love Joe B's Swap Shop and Laurel County Live Show, and I was really enjoying the Joe Hall and Danny Crum show, until they moved them to 5:00 and replaced them with "Neal Borch".

I LEARNED A LONG TIME AGO THAT WFTG DID NOT KNOW HOW TO PROGRAM THEIR STATION. I TOO DID NOT LIKE IT WHEN THEY PUT JOE HALL AND CRUM ON AT 5:00 IN THE AFTERNOON, SURELY THEY KNOW THAT NOONE LISTENS TO WFTG AT THAT HOUR AND I THINK THAT WOULDE BE A GREAT TIME FOR NEAL BORSCHE, EVERF HOW YOU SPELL THAT DUDES NAME.

I HAVE NEVER LISTENED TO WFTG AT 8:00 OR 9:00 IN THE MORNINGS, BUT WILL BE DFINITELY SIGNING IN. THAT SWAP/LAUREL LIVE SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. THANKS FOR FILLING ME IN ON THIS.

I also like the Joe B. and Denny show I think they should put it back on at 10, I don't ever get to listen to it at 5. I wish they would also extend laurel county live.

I really wish they would get rid of the Neal Borsch Guy (ever how you spell that last name), and bring back Joe B. and Denny. I cannot believe they put them on at 5:00 p.m., like anybody in Laurel County is listening to that at that time of day. It is sickening.

I am glad someone else don't like it that they replaced Joe B. Hall and Denny Crum with that Neal Person.

I also agree with whoever is wanting them to extend Jolly Joe's show to three hours, that would be wonderful. We love that show in this house, was disappointed that it wasn't on this morning, then I realized this is Sunday.

I wish someone could get through to WFTG and get Joe Hall and Denny Crum back on at a decent hour, and extend Jolly Joe's Swap Shop/Laurel County Live to 11:00 a.m. What would be wrong with Joe Hall and Denny Crum being on from 11:00 to 12:00 noon. If they are determined to have Neal B. on, I think 5:00 p.m. would be a great time for him.

I agree with you Honestly. Seems like Joe Birchel's show has really made it big. I don't know of anyone that listens to Neal (whatever his last name is), but they seemed determined to keep him on at that hour. If they want give Joe Birchel another hour, they should at least move Joe B. and Denny C.'s show to 11:00 and as someone had stated, put Neal ? on at 5:00.

Why don't you write to the station? I doubt their owners read this.

The owners care about nothing. They want people to work for free while they are being treated like crap. That is probably the reason Joe left, and every other decent person before him. The way to hurt them is for businesses to stop buying advertising from them, even if it is dirt cheap.

Whomever "Want to Know" is, you're crazy for saying that Adam didn't have a personality. Adam was the best on Swap Shop, and all other shows he does now, live remotes, DJ parties, kicking it up on K-town and on the beach. He comes out to get to know people and went on to bigger and better radio broadcasting in bigger cities. I am a follower of Adam the DJ, he's moved on keeping it real and alive in places you've only dreamed of, doing what is right for radio. What are you doing "Want To Know"? HUH? You small town one hit wonder.

So Sad!! This post has been out there for 4 years.......... and WFTG STILL hasn't figured anything out!!!
Why can't they just run something like CNN news 24/7?? It would be better than that stuff on there now.

Neil Borsch is by far the most caustic, underhanded radio personality I have ever listened to in my life. He is an agitator, a racist and a hillbilly. He detests our President and has no qualms about saying so. He manufacturers things President Obama is doing and will not and cannot give him credit for anything. He also hates Muslims. I heard him tell one off the other day. It isn't fair or humane to treat people like he does.
He has been hired to agitate not educate and I feel sorry for the people in small towns with limited radio access that have to listen to this blowhard mold their minds in an anti-American way.
I am going to do what I can to get this guy tossed off the air. He is distastefully obnoxious. Furthermore, he is wrong. Our President is a good one and has done great things for all of us.
