Ken, I really miss listening to you in the mornings... it's so depressing without you. i hope you are ok. Hope you put your talent to use again real soon. You have so many possibilities, but I wanana be selfish and tell you to go back to being a dj so I can listen to you again!!!

99.9, 100.7, 96.1 - what are you waiting for?

Ken was the best in the morning. The Lehigh Valley lost what most larger cities couldn't compete against. Ken made you laugh out loud, made the mornings go by fast, made you smile. It sucks without him and B104 will never be the same.

I can't believe it! I really enjoyed listening to Ken in the morning too. Man - you don't realize how taken for granted a morning show can get... Until it is not there anymore. Best Wishes Ken!

Ken, we miss you!! We woke up to B104 every morning, but don't anymore. You were the only good thing about driving to work in the morning. Best wishes. P.S. Do we still get a discount for mentioning your name at Freeman Jewelers??

Ken, mornings r not the same. I wish you the best for you and your family. I was looking forward to you and Mike talking about his child being born. I am sorry for the Valley losing a great morning voice.

Ken, I was one of your (9) listeners. You made my long drive to work entertaining and go quickly. I loved your sense of values and stand with morality.
Did B104 buckle under some type of pressure? SHAME ON YOU B104. I thouht you knew what the Valley wanted.
Ken, please let your fans know where you will be working so we can tune in to that station. I've already switched from B104 to 99.9 the Hawk. That morning show is much better.
Good luck to you Ken! I hope my ears get to hook up with your voice, once again in the near future.
Best Regards,
ONE of the NINE LISTENERS

I've been tuning in every morning waiting to hear Ken's voice. I'm so sad that he's gone. It's going to be hard to find a morning show to replace. It's the only station I didn't want to hear music in the morning, just Ken, blabbing away. Good Luck Ken, we'll miss you in the am.

I work in Allentown and was off work for a week and can not believe Ken is gone. I think B104 is making a big mistake. Ken Matthews is B104 and without him I know alot of people will not be listening. Good Luck to you Ken and your family. Hope to hear you again on the radio. Mornings are just not the same without you.

I feel the same as everyone else who has postted here. The day I found out that Ken was no longer at the station I changed my dial on the radio and haven't been back since. I know they do not care what the listeners think because I emailed Laura St James and told her I changed stations. I know she didn't really read my mail because the reply I received from her said she hopes I find something else at the station I would like. What part of I already changed my station didn't she understand? I have not laughed out loud in the morning with the new station I have on now, boy I REALLY miss Ken! Best of luck to him and I hope we can find him somewhere on the radio soon!!

Ken:

It looks like B104 made a big mistake by letting you leave...Like many many others, you were the only reason why I was listening to B104 every morning...You made me laugh so hard for years...You had the courage of your opinions...Not sterile news,an intelligent viewpoint (I did not agree with you all the time but I really miss you). Wherever you will go, I hope I will be able to reconnect with that channel. Good luck and keep up the good work!

I am glad to see I am not the only one missing Ken...

I read in the morning call last week that Ken was supposed to speak at the Conference of churches in Whitehall last Wednesday. If this is true, he is still close by. Don't wanna give anyone false hope but I was excited to read it.

I hope you come back to radio Ken! At least you are doing what you are good at which is public speaking. Maybe you ought to try something like motivational speaking or seminars.

I was wondering what had happened to him and why those two others were in his place. I had been hoping he was just on vacation. The music is repedative and often poorly mixed and now my favorite guy is gone. Also, will they please just stop that stupid "All you need to know" nonesense with the news? Like most people I too have now switched from B104 for good. Despite everything pulling Ken was the last straw.

I switched from CAT Country because they were always changing morning DJ's. So I thought B104 with Ken was a good choice. Mornings are already difficult, Ken made them palatible - funny, real, intelligent. I miss it and will certainly switch from B104 to another station. Since listeners are leaving B104 in hopes of finding a decent morning show, I hope B104 advertisers also take their business to another station as well.

WE WANT KEN BACK!!!!! My kids and I are so sad. Every morning on the why to school, we talk about how much we miss Ken. We leave the radio off now. Boooo B104!

I email Laura St. James and she didn't even respond back to me! I guess they don't care about Ken or the listners. I switched stations at home and work. The B104 morning show doesn't even play current songs. It's all old stuff. Keep getting everyone to switch to other stations to show our support for Ken.

Wish we knew what REALLY happened.... Any station that won't read emails and properly reply is sad. So B104, goodbye, and I already have a great Philly station I tune into. PS-And they read and answer emails too!!
