    Then it's not a statement at all about anyone's "discontent." More their personal preference. Which is fine.

    Very similar demos to a typical classic rock or classic hits.

    Rimshot is a killer for most formats.....a Classic Hits on it might have worked as it could sell in the BPT area as well....but the eastern rimshots are always a deficit....97.1 has a great signal from the Northeast as a rimshot and thus does well...and the format is unique for the area....(93Q and Bull don't do classic country much)
    W&J were hardly political back then.

    There is no such thing as a True Rock Station. "True" and "Rock" do not belong in the same phrase.

    The article may give some insight into the disconnect between the folks who run and program stations and the potential listeners and the gap that some refuse to believe exists.

    Or perhaps that what some people say in an article doesn't reflect that they'd actually listen to a station if it existed.

    Or that a handful of people in an article or on a web page doesn't translate to enough of an audience in a desired demographic to dedicate a full time radio station.

    Rock 101 KLOL was no doubt a great station in its day. It was probably still a great rock station the day it died.

    The problem was the audience had moved on. They were either enjoying The Arrow or The Buzz, and KLOL became obsolete.

    The appetite for what KLOL offered back then may have returned, but I really think all the KLOL stuff is just nostalgia. If the station were to pick up tomorrow on 101.1 at the same place it left off in 2008, it would die the same fate within a year.

    They're doing well for a rimshot is because well, the audience that typically would listen to that kinds of stuff are old people that live in the sticks.
