WBUF Drops the Rock

WBUF Drops The RockIt's only been a few days since I listed the ten FM station presets on my car radio, yet one of them has already changed their format.

One of my presets is set to 92.9, WBUF out of Buffalo. I described it as "another great rock station and Howard Stern in the mornings". Howard Stern is still there, but it doesn't sound like there will be any more great rock. This morning they were describing themselves as Buffalo's FM Talk and running down their new lineup of syndicated talk radio programs.

They're talking themselves up as Buffalo's only FM talk radio, but their website still has a scroll calling them "Buffalo's Rock Station" and they're still yakking about being totally hard. I'm guessing this is simply sloppy site maintenance.

I periodically enjoyed the blend of new hard rock and older rock I heard from WBUF, but 94.9 The Rock out of Oshawa, 97.7 HTZ FM out of St. Catherines and Y108 out of Hamilton play pretty much the same stuff. Besides, I spend the bulk of my music listening time on CFNY Edge 102 anyways.

I hate the idea of a good FM signal being wasted on talk radio. FM is for music...AM is for talk.

I am outraged about this radio station topic, but not directly about your blog posting. When will the radio stations learn that they can't do things that people who listen to radio stations.

Until they listen, I shall post a comment on a blog that has no direct relation to the radio station I have my beef about.
