The moves don't surprise me. I still can't believe the the complete destruction of KPOI. The ratings show just how stupid management's been there!

Erika, Thanks for the sad news on the state of C.C. and radio in general in the islands. I think Dick Wainwright has a great idea. I would be back in Honolulu in a heartbeat if we could pull together enough of the right investors willing to let us do what we know is right and profitable (and they just sit back and listen to the magic on the radio and count the cash). I know of many Hawaii radio stars who would jump at the chance to recreate a bit of the past here in the 21st. Century in exchange for a small piece of the pie. Any takers can call me. Erika has my number!

Never really listened to KSUCK. Mainly because it seems to be so popular here in the Islands...and therefore by logic is c-r-a-p.
