Just to give an example, Pulse 87 went off the air with no on air warning to the listeners until 5 hours before, and we would not have even known it would be going off if we hadn't been informed of its finances. PartyFM went off 87.7 with no warning, except a speculative post the night before on this board. G-Rock went off the air with no warning at all.
As soon as the radiothon was announced, we knew Pulse was going to expire at any moment, and that happened 3 months before Pulse was off the air. Then there was October 15th, where Mega Media couldn't find an 11th hour deal, and failed to pay the lease with Island broadcasting, so the writing was on the wall for Pulse.
PartyFM was not getting the props for filling the hole of dance music (comparing them to Pulse). Yes, I understood the repetition of some tracks where you can hear them also on 92.3, 94.3, 96.3, 100.3, 103.5, and 106.3, but do you think as a programmer, would you tell your audience that you yanked out of 87.7 because of the hate the core dance fans was giving Party?
As far as G-Rock, well...I'll leave that to SoulCrusher lol.
