    Most of B87's twitter followers are probably fake too.

    They've got a Lowe's advertisement and one for Jackson-Hewitt as well. I would be willing to bet more B87 followers are real than the other stations to be honest. But can we shift the attention back to WJMN and what they're going to do with their program/format. When you compare Jamn today to Jamn of the early 2000s its remarkable how much they've declined.

    I remember a progressive rock pirate on AM from Waltham that sometimes did that to "sound legit" back in the late '60s/early '70s, but the horrible fidelity and heterodyne tones from their converted WWII shortwave transmitter were the giveaway.

    19,000? And that is supposed to be impressive?

    The top three or four Boston music FMs each reach in excess of 1.2 million different listeners each week. Put that in perspective against 19 thousand. BFD.

    No I'm saying when compared to hot 969 and 945 their Twitter following is of a similar size. Hot 969s twitter following is less than 13000 (unconfirmed) accounts ...they have far more listeners than that (about 600k). Certainly you have to extrapolate that 19,000? No?

    No. It is irrelevant and has no correlation. Much depends on whether a station's twitter account is promoted on-air and via their other social media activities. If they don't tweet often and don't deliver interesting content, they won't get a large number of followers.

I think 977 will rove that you can operate a profitable Urban station in 2017 EMass, maybe it didnt work 15 years ago in the early 2000s...but the fact that Jamin has but 280 months of experience to WKAF's 2 and WKAF is within .5 Arbitrons of Jamn is INSANE.

    They are Too removed from Boston to understand idiosyncracies of our demographics and regional music tastes. Most Hispanics in Eastern Mass identify with blacks to a great extent. ESPECIALLY IN THE YOUNGER GENERATION. A mainstream Urban like they have in NYC or Philly would go over very well here. You cant have an Urban show like Breakfast Club and then play golden hip hop hits from 2010. No one likes the music they l, no one.

    Im a young and Urban, most people I know in my circle LOVE the Breakfast Club and think its the best part of Jamn. But the people who actually listen to JAMN are driving their kids to school dont like t because its too crass and not local and homer-ish enough for them. The Breakfast Club keeps you plugged into the hip hop culture nationwide and is an honor to have in Boston.

    They need to clean house only keep most of the Jamn Mixers keep Money Mav and Pup Dawg, bring in the top local voices we hear on pirate B87.7 which has an ENORMOUS following in Boston proper. Switch to a New Fresh Hip HOp station an call it a day.

    Personally I love WKAF but the morning show lacks. My mom is their target demographic. 50 year old Black woman living on the South Shore near Brockton..she likes the weekend personalities. She complained to me about how KJ and Kesha are "SOOO BORING" she said "they dont know black culture" she even said they "sound scared." Granted they may not be the most typically black sounding Urban AC hosts I think we must concede that this IS still Boston I think KJ and Keshas biggest problem is that they are not Boston locals and are till trying to acclimate themselves to our very unique black culture here. They should have tapped more local people or gone with a Steve Harvey Morning Show. Music and finish is immaculate though
    1. Have you ever even seen the inside of a radio station?
    2. Harvey is on in Boston on AM 1410 WZBR.
    3. WKAF is targeted at adults, numbstick. Your mom is indeed the target demo.
    4. No pirate has an "enormous" audience.

    [QUOTE=CTListener;6143601]How would a pirate get a national account like Geico for an advertiser? I remember The Touch airing local ads back in the day, but never anything like the Geico spots that are heard so often on licensed broadcasters and even on network feeds.

    If you think Geico's or any other national advertiser's agency buys a pirate you need serious help. No ratings, no buy. I bet you $10 the spots were part of some kind of syndicated barter service. Another radio wannabe who fancies himself an expert.
