You just said it, Toledo is a blue collar town. I know, I live in the Toledo area and have all my life. I'm actually shocked it hasnt been done. K-100 has been 1# for how many years? It seems to me that a country gold on another signal would Sell VERY well. Maybe add a little more Country gold into the K-100 playlist, take 106.5(or 94.5) hot new country. You would of course have to be careful not to make them sound too similar.
Cleveland is as blue-collar as Toledo, just 4 times bigger. Yet only one country outlet in WGAR/99.5. Which plays more currents than K100.
Yes WQMX/Akron gets into Cleveland, but rule of thumb one doesn't "tune down" to a smaller market, ie Clevelanders listening to an Akron station, regardless of how good it is (and WQMX is very good).
Cleveland is blue-collar. One country outlet. No classic country. Why?
