Classic hip-hop is in the Bluefield, Princeton radio market. And I want to know what your thoughts are.October 5, 2016 at 12:20 pm #151254
That’s the same question I’ve been asking. Can alpha media sell this audience? I know I’m here now, but will everybody else in the market and as far as advertising go get everything done. Well, it looks like it.October 5, 2016 at 1:50 pm #151255
Why are y’all excited about it? This is a 24/7 satellite format on AM + translator in a backwoods town. It’ll be no threat to the major players.October 5, 2016 at 3:57 pm #151261
While I agree with both of you, they shouldn’t have tried it. However I think it will last. The one question that seems to go for me is… How come they are putting it on an a.m. station. We have the FM translator, but why put it on the a.m.? The one thing that they are doing, is they are definitely putting the high school sports in. I wish they could put the 98.7 frequency in stereo. That way they can be hurt a little more.October 5, 2016 at 4:08 pm #151262
Because a lot of people on this board get excited about Rap Oldies (and no, I do not use weasel words). It’s become like heroin for the industry — a quick high and then a long crash.
Bluefield is in a very conservative region where a CHR station once banned a national #1 song because of the artist’s name.October 5, 2016 at 6:14 pm #151263
I may be new to this board, and I also may be new to this state, but I have never heard of a single CHR station especially in this market, banning one song. And just to ask, what song was it? And which CHR radio station was it? Was it J10 4.5? Although J10 4.5 is a hot AC station that claims to be CHR. But it was interesting to know. Thanks Charles.October 5, 2016 at 7:27 pm #151266
I think it was “Right Here Right Now”, by Jesus Jones. And WCIR was the station.October 5, 2016 at 8:49 pm #151268
I didn’t know why no three CIR, (103.7 FM), was the station. Sorry that’s 103 CIR. But that station is like a signal strength for. Isn’t it?
