Herkimer county is done. Put a fork in it. Thanks goes to the prince of darkness and his mindless followers.

It was refreshing to hear Bill Keeler back on the radio yesterday; today was even better. Two complaints - to many advertisments - it seems things just get going and "I have to take a break" seriously!!!! Don't shove advertisments down our throat WIBX managers. Put on a good morning show and they will come - meaning focus on building up Keeler's audience - once you have the consistent loyal supporters the advertisers will come and subsquently your bills will get paid. Let Keeler be Keeler - he blows Mark and Frank away!

2nd complaint - the airwave only goes a little past verona (exit 33) and I lose frequency before I get to work - sucks! I missed Gabby Cabby's old lady story today! By the time they got him back on the phone - I had lost the frequency. If people in Lee can get WIBX why can't it be carried to Canastota?

The signal also gets weak out past Herkimer going east.

I listened to Keeler back in the day and have tuned in this week. It seems like Bill just picked up where he left off with the same old tired guests he had on 5 years ago. Hand cream and Gabby Cabby.

That is precisely his problem. He doesn't get it. If it didn't work before - it won't work now Bill. It's just a matter of time. You heard it here.

And don't forget the parade of white trash rejects.

I heard this yesterday and today, it's better than the Bob and Tom and they tell you about what is going on locally. It's nice.
I would not listen to Bob and Tom if they paid me. I listened to them for a few weeks when they were on a different station about 7 or 8 years ago.

I think the Keeler online show failed to last because Piersma got hired at WUTQ during the first week of shows, and the producer missed shows during the first week for job interviews. I think they were only together as a team the first day.

I think once Bill gets used to working with people he doesn't know, in a studio he didn't set up personally, on a format where he can't blow off commercials and news to stick with skits and phone interviews the show will do really well.

I listened all week this week, changing my habits that I built up the last few years. I plan on sticking around, and I hate constant news updates.

The online show failed for the obvious reason that no one was listening.

Over a month of media coverage, a running countdown of stories on Utica Daily News, a commercial during the superbowl...and nobody cared. The same people flogging Keeler now were flogging it back then, insisting right until the end that it was a phenomenal success.

The exact same thing is happening again. He's even using the same bits from the disastrous online shows. Talk about hacky.
