By all appearances, Genesee Joe is working very hard (as was Jerry Kraus when he was there) at keeping the station's local angle alive. Kudos to him for making the effort. It's just a shame that the guy is getting no help from his employer. In decades past, WOUR was "cutting edge". Sadly, the whole mainstream radio business jettisoned "edginess" for ad-driven, white-bread cynicism long ago, and now we're left with mind-numbing Rock Muzak & matching commercials spots for the 45+ demographic. Yuck.
Well said

You're the one listener! With a 1.9 rating share, listen a lot because they wont be around much longer. No ratings ,no money ,no concerts and 90 year old guys taping shows on the air. Nice!
You aren't considering Little Dickey a concert are you? Did you tell him he had to climb a few stairs? oooh maybe his kid can come with him.
As for no listeners and no money? They are getting more every month now, and thank you by the way.
And Tape? Sorry Rumplstiltskin, we B digital now, you talk as old as your muzak. LOL

WOUR has good DJ's but unfortunately are stuck to some ridiculous play list that nobody is interested in. It was much better when it was the best classic and new rock. There are a million examples. i, for example am a life-long WHO enthusiast. how many tiomes< I requested something from LIVE AT LEEDS, but didn't play it. Instead they would play WHO ARE YOU which is the lamest WHO song there is. it seems they only want to play "cute" stuff or rather are forced too. There are so many more examples. If Genesee Joe or Dave from WOUR could DJ a decent station like 92.7 "The Drive", WOW, amongst the top in State! Gentleman, Listen to these comments as it reflects the true feelings of your listeners and not Arbitron or whoever else you use! BY THE WAY LISTEN TO Q107 from Toronto, to see how classic Rock can be made relevant with contests, commentary etc.. Add the best of the new stuff and WAHLA!, you have both a Hip and affluent audience.

I own 92.7 and even I have to admit that we have ZERO ratings.
Listen now because I am changing format REALLY soon.

I would like it if WOUR would just stick with NOTHING BUT classic rock!! There's NOTHING better than CLASSIC rock, this new "rock" doesn't even come close to being as good. I know a lot of you disagree and think I'm stuck in the eighties, and when it comes to music, you're right, I am. To each his/her own. Everybody has their own opinion and nobody has to agree with me, I just thought I'd state mine.

Um, because it IS classic rock!! And why the insults? You don't agree, so now I have a "fat ass"?? And just HOW in the hell would you know that, may I ask? Also, reread my post. I said it was MY opinion, as everyone is entitled to one, and you DON'T have to agree with it! GEEZ, lighten up and quit being so rude!

They are playing this new rock to protect themselves. It's called format specific. Playing new music by classic artists. The goal is to keep you from switching staions to hear that new Scorpions,Tom Petty, or Rush song.

Well I guess if you want to call Thin Lizzy and crusty old Rick Derringer "classic rock" have at it but that's the problem. WOUR has perfected "dry rock" which explains why their playlist and ratings are dead!
"I'm just a poor boy from a poor family"! Went out in 78 let it stay there!

Had a part-time shift at 'OUR in the heyday mentioned. One amazing music library, somewhat free form.
It may have sounded okay, but it was a toilet for workers. Bunkfeld owned it then. The cheapskate made the eagle on coins scream.
The General Manager and PD (Dale) were both dicks. I jumped for joy when they were fired. Dale sells insurance the last I heard. An occupation he's well suited for.
Jerry Kraus was an arrogant pr**k who looked down his nose at everyone. Glad he got fired, too. Well suited to be a typical politician. Tom Starr was a pretty good guy.
A little back stage drama for the mix. Rock On!
