    WYSP Dumps Talk Shows, Return To Rock Expected

    WYSP Dumps Talk Shows, Return To Rock Expected

    94.1 WYSP website

    The WYSP site still shows all the talk shows. They haven't yanked it down. They wasted no time back in the day when O&A got yanked for S4S3.

    Opie's probably mad 'cause he'll still have to do Kidd Chris's show.

    The Krock format seems to be working.

    Exactly. Now Philly can hear any one of the Green Day singles from the last album whenever they want.

    Wouldn't surprise me to see just O&A and Kidd Chris doing talk. The rest of the
    lineup wasn't that good.

    matt and huggy were tolerable when they were on after cousin ed before they fired him. I used to listen while closing the kitchen and mandatory metallica always seemed to give my boys the kick in the ass they needed.

    Now if only KRock would do the same and bring back Ron and Fez.

    Yeah, but they were playing music then. As a talk only show, not so good.

    Hallelujah.

    The rest of YSP sucked moose cock. Thank God that horrid Barsky show is gone, and the unlistenable Matt and Huggy (though I'm sure they'll STILL stay at YSP as it seems they survive every format change) and Scotty and Alex was the most pathetic attempt at a radio show I ever heard.

    Now if only Kidd Chris got the boot.

    Krock is awesome, very few commercials, they play b-sides. Just so you know, underground doesn't play on the radio.

    I too will miss The Monkey Boy. I met him at the station during the O&A Cafe, he was pretty cool.

    So, what you're saying is, CBS finally figured out that FreeFM was a bad idea, a year and a half after everyone else?

    hopefully they will take on similar programming like 92.3 did, the station is has become my fave . I sometimes work in the Philly area so to be able to listen to KRock like programing would be great

    Obviously 2 R&F shows would be more gooder. I think CBS will move to syndicate Kidd Chris in NYC for afternoon drive since he remains under contract through next August. Wheather you like the show or not, there's a reason he survived the cut in Philly, he brings the numbers.

    Brad Maybe was a DJ for KRock for a little while. Hopefully they'll hire him back so that they'll actually have other on-air personalities besides O&A and Jimmy and the rest of the O&A staff.
