I stopped listening to them couple of years ago, when they started playing all Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving. I emailed them to complain and they rather snottily replied that they HAD to do what their listeners wanted. Well, not what this listener wanted, so I "walked". Never been back.

Hopefully WALK will go off the air forever saving people from being mindless drones in their offices. UGH.

Maybe we can finally get a decent rock station instead of this instead of the trash on the other ones.

Well, I don't like the constant Christmas music either, but I know how to turn the dial on my radio too. When their done, I turn them back on! Simple.

Other than that, I like WALK-FM. I can rely on Pat Pagano and the other meteoroligists for the mostly accurate weather reports.

I can rely on Cindy and Mark to give me firsthand reports on what it's like driving into work during inclement weather in the morning.

I like the fact that their music is decent and clean.

I also like the reports on what men like or don't like and what women like and don't like, etc.

In short, I wake up to them in the morning and listen to them as I'm getting ready for work and also when I'm driving home from work.

The one good thing I have to say about the Christmas music is that last winter, we had a really bad ice storm and I was in the car on my way home in bumper to bumper traffic and scared. Instead of getting all bent out of shape and getting high blood pressure, I turned on WALK-FM and sang along with the Christmas Carols and that made the ride enjoyable and a whole lot less stressful. In short, they got me through it all like a good friend.

Thanks WALK!
