I thought SUVs were politically incorrect these days?

Not if Ice T is chasing 'the perpetrator'

SVU=Special Victims Unit

99.1

Can the political talk nonsense. I wish it was V99.1 again.

99.1

I agree! 100.3 sucks now that they took on half of J-105's music. And we don't need news talk radio on FM. Nobody is listening to their AM station, why would moving to FM make any difference?

Pull your head out of the ground

There are nationally syndicated radio shows that have audiences TEN TIMES larger than most TV shows of similar topic (i.e, news, politics). It may not be your first choice in listening plaesure, but if more people tuned into actual news than getting their info from comedy shows, this country wouldn't be so ignorant when it came to national issues.

That isn't my point.

My point is why do we need to have duplicate programming on two different stations while completely ignoring a genre of music. I understand there are numbers to support the programming, but to have it on duplicate stations seems absurd to me. If nothing else it proves there is an overabundance of radio stations in this valley and not enough programming or listeners to support them.

I guess I should've responded to the other post

My comment was more directed to Brettxpw's comment. Your post is a valid comment. Currently, KTIK does the same thing with 1350AM and 93.1FM. In that case, it's the SAME programming (with the exception of the occasional Stealheads show/game in the AM station) at the same time.

These other stations aren't totally identical, tho. They may have the same shows, but at least they have some variation of time slots. Perhaps this is for some people that cannot catch the live one. I don't know. TBH, I don't listen to any of those shows. They just don't interest me.

But they SUCK and 99.5 will eventually play the Stylistics

You mean comedy shows like

Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck and all the other Faux news comedies? "Yet another study has been released proving that watching Fox News is detrimental to your intelligence" http://www.alternet.org/story/149193/study_confirms_that_fox_news_makes_you_stupid/

I think you lost some brain cells from swarmines.

Boise Radio and TV Programming

Radio programming.....station programs are so bad that the only way you can listen to it is if you don't understand spanish. Then listen to the Hispanic stations.

TV....12.1 and 12.2 going to canned programming is just like the radio stations. If they are eliminating local programming then they now are now competing with TNT, ESPN etc. ,which they don't.

Rather than not using 12.3, why not see if BSU would like to have the students work on developing local programs as part of their class work? Would have to be more interesting than reruns.

I've suggested a local sports channel to Cocola a few times...

And what do you mean by "canned"?

KTRV went on the air in 1981 as an indepewndant station. Perhaps you weren't aware. I'm 3 years older than Michael and he wasn't here when I was 15.

LOVE the retro TV shows!

Rifleman, Odd Couple, Mash, Twilight Zone, Perry Mason. LOVE IT. If you haven't seen Boris Karloff's THRILLER definitely check it out. It's like a Hammer Horror version of Twilight Zone. And, Saturday night has the 60's Batman!

I'd rather watch these great shows than the lousy garbage sitcoms of today.
