    101.9 has gone to a rock format.

    http://www.1019rxp.com/

    Here's their first dozen songs:

    The Velvet Underground - Rock And Roll
    R.E.M. - Supernatural Superserious
    Elvis Costello - Pump It Up
    Tom Petty - Mary Jane's Last Dance
    Blondie - Call Me
    The Bravery - Believe
    Bruce Springsteen - Blinded By The Light
    The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize
    U2 - Angel Of Harlem
    Nickelback - Rockstar
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Zephyr Song
    The Black Crowes - Hard To Handle


    Whether you like this music better than 92.3 or not, it's still competition for much of the same audience. K-Rock can't get much lower in the ratings and survive. :icon_mad:

    this could be a good thing as long as o&a's ratings don't drop. maybe krock would be willing to have ron and fez on during the evenings again since their ratings were on the way up, right before the format switch.

    Because Elvis Costello and the Flaming Lips = ratings :icon_roll

    change the playlist to all Nickelback and Chili Peppers and K-Rock would have real competition.

    however, the only way to get ratings is to cater to demos of people who don't use ipods (spanish and urban)

    maybe if k-rock updated their fucking playlist that seems to have "1995" still written at the top, they might have a shot at being relevant. they are digging their own grave.

    This has been a problem I have had with them SINCE 1995. Just a bad all around rock station.

    You have to get to the 11th place station in the largest market in the USA to find a music station that white men listen to.

    I think the blacks are fully up on the ipods but the thing is that they share a brain more than the whites do. They tend to like the same stuff. If you tell me that you have a black guy between the ages of 20 and 30, I'm going to be much more confident in saying that he likes rap/hip hop as his favorite music than the same example with a white guy. Hence their radio stations don't tend to be as eclectic. In today's corporate dominated monopolies, when you get a bunch of people voting (with their ears, wallets, ...) for the same thing, no matter how stupid it is, that thing gets promoted.

    Pretentious shit radio. The jock was talking about how records sound so much better than CDs, and how he was so excited when he bought his first Iggy Pop record. Fucking die.

    Better playlist, for the most part (boo Nickelback), than K-Rock.

    Don't they?

    QFT. Although I think its cool, that at the moment there are 3 rock stations in NYC, I'm still not going to listen to any of them. I think the only way I would even consider it, was if one of them had a heavy rotation of metal music.
