my favorite radio hosts, Eric and Carson (out of Flint, MI) got fired after 6 years on the air

has anyone else had a radio station they love basically ruined for this reason?

103.3 FTW. I don't know where they're based, but I'm from Saginaw.

Radio hosts are stupid. Just play the damn music and shut the hell up. that's what DJ's should be doing. No stupid voices, no stupid sound effects, no dumb jokes. I can't stand when DJ's think the reason people listen to the radio is because they want to hear them.

My favourite radio station, Planet Rock, almost got shut by this ****ing bitch who took over their (old) main company (who had a number of other stations).

Even though it has more listeners than BBC 6music (that also rules), she saw it as "not commercially viable".

The sexy irony to this is she got fired, and the radio station was bought by a music loving millionnaire with support from Gary Moore, Anderson from Jethro Tull and Queen's Brian May!

Great station. They play loads of classic tunes but its incredibly varied as well and they have loads of time for new music and bands/releases. The DJs are all great blokes as well.

94.5, The Q!
Big Al and Charlie from 5am to 10am; nothing but "Classic Rock," but they play some 90's tunes as well. It gets me in the mood in the morning.

What pissed me off the most was when D and D( from detroit on 97.1) got kicked off, the station turned to all sports, and they didn't even get a goodbye show. They did some funny stuff.
meh

there used to be a show on NPR called "Fair Game" and it was basically a satirical radio show that covered every thing from politics to stupid restaurant managers. a couple of the shows were kind of stupid but most of them were hilarious.

anyway, the entire show got cancelled in late may :-(

i miss it.

it was fun to listen to when i couldn't sleep ( where i live it came on at 1 am). And they even had slash come on the show once.
