OPIE: And boy, do I have a doozy for Philly. Can't wait for you to play your card, 'cause I got a fine hand waiting to be played.
Hmmm....

If they get booted from WYSP, do you think their contract allows them to go to a non-CBS station in the same market?

Clear Channel's 104.5 (WRFF) just switched from Spanish to rock, and they don't seem to have a real morning show yet.

Radio 104.5 is new radio! Being Philadelphia’s newest rock station, we provide great rock music with an alternative vibe. What makes us different… no hype, stupid liners or radio contests. We have longer music sweeps and the widest selection of music including new bands and cuts not heard in years.
This station is already beating 93.3 (home of Preston & Steve) in the ratings.

Hmmm....

What do you Philly people know about this situation?

Why would they want to put on O&A (who currently get beat by Preston and Steve) if they are already beating 93.3?

that station has been pretty good from what i've listened to. they play a lot of music and keep the commercials and the phony banter in between to a minimum.

Maybe Opie knows a lot about WYSP's dirty laundry and he's just gonna drop it all like a dump truck.

Philly should be punished with no Virus or other tours.

Maybe Opie is going to challenge Preston and Steve to a celebrity boxing match. You know, for charity?

Opie is going to gather thousands of pests to smash regular radios in front of their studios.

I woulda replied with "lol" if straight men still did that after 2002, but I loffed quite a bit. Seriously can Opie really blow up the Philly station or P.D? I thought he 'never called us back and I asked him to call us so we could give him and he could give us city info..etc. ' Also could the zombie who is bound to replace them (AKA Kid Chris) have thrown the boys any ammo recently? Probably not. Trying not to dig deeper into 'bash mode' it reminded when I was listening of a girlfriend I had when I was dumping her for a hotter chick who worked in my building. 'You mother fucker. I have your old cell phone and your friends phone numbers". ' Thanks. Let me know what they think of my new girlfriend.

Opie is going to hide the only existing tape of Spuds Buckley somewhere on the WYSP grounds.

If WYSP drops the boys, Opie will offer Kidd Chris a job in NY. He has said before that Chris should do afternoons or middays in NY and Chris hasn't seemed too happy about the shadiness of YSP during this whole situation. That would leave WYSP with no morning show. They get NOTHING. They LOSE.

On his last visit there, Op dropped mud in a file cabinet and he will reveal which one to them.

You are correct with the P&S portion. I wrote to Mike Klein of the Inquirer today asking how the ratings were for 104.5


Q. I was wondering what the latest set of ratings was for WRFF 104.5. I recently read in your Q&A column that they #2 behind WMMR. I really like the fact that they play new rock and mix in some older songs.
Debbie , Philadelphia 10/18/07

A. WRFF is doing extraordinarily well. In Septembe, it was #1 for the fourth month in a row in average share among listeners 18-34. Its only "weak" area seems to be morning drive, where it's #2 to Preston & Steve on WMMR.

I know nothing, but wouldn't this 104.5 be their only clear channel station?

Isn't Clear Channel more strict on their hosts than CBS?

O&A need to get their 6-7AM hour replayed on the FM side from 9-10AM. This one thing will boost their ratings in every single market. It's like trying to get the best test score when everyone else but you has 25 bonus points thrown in.
