In Reply to: Two things I noticed while surfing past Q tonight.... posted by Really? on July 16, 2009 at 20:14:02:
: (1) No Lia or Lita or whatever her name was. (Oh, and no evening DJ from what I could tell.)
: (2) At 8PM, "Brown Eyed Girl" was being played--an oldies (!) song that's not really country, is borderline classic rock (IMHO, anyway), and a song that's making me think more and more that this new Q will go in so many different directions playlist-wise when you think it should go down one steady path.
Noticed more Star Country booming through the boom boxes in the livestock barns at the Dane County Fair.... Q used to dominate there. Didn't hear it all. No Q presence at all at least Thursday night. In fact, it's sad... MWF has exclusive rights to the event and they do a terrible job. Very few -- if any -- live broadcasts. Next to no street presence. They must really offer the fair folks a good deal because I think the other radio operators in town would treat that event a little differently. The same goes for Brat Fest, Taste, etc... so much potential... but all you really see are a bunch of banners and that's it. Maybe the street team stuff at fairs and festivals is a thing of the past because of budget cuts, but I think it's a missed opportunity for good listener interaction, especially when your competition is locked out of many of the events because of your "exclusive" rights.
