Reading about the disatrous ratings on 92.7,there are a few ideas as to why it failed so badly.The signal was improved but the ratings did not follow.
It's hard to tell what the music format is.Classic rock? Hard Rock? Alternative rock? Plus hiring every old,over the hill DJ within a 50 mile radius might not have been the best idea.
Well anyway just my 2 cents

maybe they are failing because they invest so much in keeler but maybe he isn't as popular as he thinks. And they need to get rid of Frank Mcbride. he's as annoying as Keeler.

I listen to 92.7 just for the morning drive. That is the only reason I know that station exists on my dial.

Today I learned about a new young xxx acress and about raising a pig from scratch, they have something for everyone.

I think Keeler is at his best when he's talking about politics. He can actually be pretty insighful. He seems uncomfortable doing the porn star/stripper/Howard Stern sex angle. I did not hear the interview today witht he porn star.

I know he hates Imus, but that type of radio (issue oriented, mocking political leaders, talking about current events and controversial issue from an honest perspective) fits him better than the sex stuff. He should actually take a cue from Stern, who now spends a lot of his time talking about what's going on in the world. Keeler is actually prety good at it.

I so agree with you about McBride!!("Sorry" but Keeler is OK in my book!)
All the yelling in commercials & that -UUUUHHH- groaning, sickens me. when I hear any of Grossness's commercials I turn it.~Honestly I really like the selection of music they had b4. If I want to hear classic crap I'll check out OUR if I want new junk I'll check out K-Rock.. Too bad ..I thought that the other format was more unique)
But!!
Justin is a severe detriment to the am show! Unless it is his "thing" to be an arrogant a$$hole Hippie-wanna-be female hater- [email protected]?!?~ Then he is doing an upstanding job!~He is so rude that he makes fun of Bret M & Poison b/c they are not "his all-worthy" type of music in front of a person/co-worker who is obviously a big fan (& possibly listeners who love a blast from the past) & makes light of him DYING?? Justin, just who the hell do u think u r?? Even better; Saranac/FX Matt reps there talking about some anniv. the previous night & The owner gave every one a free beer & Justin has to BLURT in "Yeah! & I Got 2!! Hahahaha!". You sir, are an extreme bag o'douche!! Oh & let's not forget bitchin about a party date, AND Even Better-yet again: Bragging how he's using some girl for neil tickets?? WTF? Have u no common consideration for Any one but yourself? OH and keep doing your druggie rants and raves. Ohh u r so knowledgeable about drugs~ how friggin cool are u?!!~
BILL: u do NOT need to have a "resident drug expert-wanna-be" on your show. Don't lower any standards for the "kids". Do we really need to glamorize drugs on the show? a joke/innuendo here-n-there, cool, but Justin is again on over-kill. Maybe he is a good producer but he needs to have less air time. Umm & what about Jay? Hardly ever hear from him except an occasional slam on Jennine(sp?)(which r funny & she takes them well & can dish back-they are great additions!)or he might say a "What?" or/and "Really??". He should be utilized more, unless he really doesn't have much to bring to the table..? Well that is all I have for now. Other then that, LOVE YOUR SHOW!!
PEACE!

I'm glad your mother let's you listen to the radio as she gives you a ride to school. It's also nice to know you get out of your rubber room once in awhile.

It's strange how alot of the anti-Keeler posts are coming from the Syracuse area I wonder who it could be?

I don't take those as comments as anti anybody but simply stating the fact that the Drive is a dismal massive failure as a radio station.
Nothing personal. Its just what ALL the ratings say

The Eastlan ratings are available at www.cnyradio.com .
The Arbitron ratings are not publicly released but they are lower for The Drive than the pathetically low Eastlan ratings.
