Just a sample of the great comments you all have left!

I also want to add my condloences.
I will keep you in my prayers.
A bit of sad news to pass along.
Timeless Tracks, a program that airs on Sunday Nights, will air its
last program this Sunday night on
K-106.3. Tony Warner has been the host of this program for several years. The music featured is music from the late 50's-early 60's. That era of music is seldom heard on local radio anymore.
There will be a big party celebrating the end of the program
Sunday night from 6-11PM.


Thanks for you prayers, they are working. I have finished radation. My Oncologist appointment next week will tell me where to go from here.

I am taking a vacation for the first time in 12 years. I have rented a motorhome and am taking my 95 year old mother and dog for some destinations close by Northwest Arkansas.

More More Citidel

A.J., just in Alabama alone, it looks like Citadel owns three AM and eight FM stations, eleven in all...many around the Birmingham, Northport, Tuscaloosa areas, as well as Reform, Greensboro and Coaling, AL.

That's a lot of equipment and stations packed into that market, urban-adult contemporary, sports talk, sports, oldies, "hot AC", news/talk, the whole gauntlet.

If these stations go out, there'll be a lot of shift over to other stations...unless, they weren't so great to begin with...then, it would be up to someone if they were to buy them up and keep the format or change. Living in Mobile, AL, there's no opportunity to hear them...and, even with a Wineguard log periodic antenna (a super-duper TV/FM receiving antenna), it's hard to hear anything at that distance under normal conditions.

Likewise, with the AM stations, since many cut their power at night (we have one in Mobile that cuts to 10 watts!)'d be difficult, unless one had a HEAP of real estate for a rhombic antenna! At that point, these are fixed receiving would take acres and acres to build several to point in all directions!

Needless to say, I hope an equitable solution can be found to keep these stations alive and people employed. Bud, Mobile, AL

Wonder who's going to pick up Citadel, if anyone? Cumulus just pulled a radio stunt...playing TV show tunes for hours, before a format change...they'd called themselves, "TV 104!". My daughter and I would listen to Rick and Bubba in the mornings, on the way to my taking her to school- and we're disappointed, now, that we can't get these two fine, hilarious gentlemen and their show. Radio is an ever-changing business, R&B will be picked up on another local station somewhere down the line....

I'd thought of calling and writing for a QSL card from
TV 104", but now that they've gone all satellite-fed, there's no one there, and I doubt that anyone at Cumulus would give a rat's patoot or even know what a station verification (QSL) was...

Goodbye, WYOR:

"After three years of middling ratings as a Country station, Cumulus Broadcasting pulled the plug on the “Kicks 104.1″ format and began stunting with a loop of TV Themes at 5:00pm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009. The following afternoon at 1:04pm the station picked up the satellite-fed version of the “Jack-FM” format after a brief sign-on announcement."

Country format gone, a wierd Top 40 mix being played now...not enough interest on MY part to listen, not the "Top 40" I'm interested in....Bud, Mobile, AL

Citadel is the Current Owner of KAAY

Citadel braces for bankruptcy: The stock market has already spoken. Citadel stock is worth four cents -- and less than a dollar for long enough to be booted off the New York Stock Exchange. Because the market has already priced in for the worst case scenario, the situation for equity holders is no doubt a lost cause. The market is saying Citadel stock is worthless. The NYSE gave up on them
