: : (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.
Jamz night last night was huge. 10,000 or more to see Jeremih.
Ozz broadcasted live for JJO night and his booth was set up right as you walked in. Smile Empty Soul played an awesum show to a packed Miller Lite Oasis. I thought it went really well. I'm a lil biased ofcourse.
Our bannering was impressive tho...
and Taste? Really? We're EVERYWHERE at Taste. Pre and post shows, killer bands... I'd like to disagree with you on MWF not having a huge presene there. We can't be all places at all times, but we do work our asses off and make sure our listeners know how much they kick ass.
