Just spotted this article from tUSU student newspaper about all the changes at at CD101..
A couple of weeks old but still relevant. Click here to read it: http://www.thelantern.com/arts/cd101-deals-with-changes-1.1796343
One person complains they are playing a lot less local bands these days. Could this be in anticipation of the brand new signal, 102.5 and it's expanded coverage area to the North
Some people here mention problems with the new 102.5 branding. This is going to be interesting
to me because it seems like a programmers nightmare.
Ohio Media Watch? Thoughts?
Maybe 102.5 won't sound like it's ran out of a janitor closet anymore.
Lifted from the other tread but very relevant here, I think:

The audio is still pretty bad on 102.5, so maybe they still have a lot more technical work to be done before they can move permanently to 102.5.
Technical work that has to be done may also be delaying the move.
I disagree. 102.5 sounds fine to me.
Really? Maybe they fixed something today, but it has sounded hollow for a while.
Agree with xiradiodotcom about the hollow sounding audio for the last few months. That said, a top notch audio engineer told me this about people's expectations on hearing good audio quality:"Audio quality is a very subjective subject!! No two pair of ears hear
things the same way."
Still, some people don't like the audio quality on 102.5. Note this post from priorityred,

"I gave this a few weeks and it hasn't improved. 102.5 sounds all muddy and low end like it's being broadcast from the bottom of a hamper of laundry. The same signal on 101.1 is perhaps a tad too compressed, but at least it has treble."
"I am not listening to 102.5. I'll stick with 101.1 until they quit or fix it.
And if 102.5 ends up sounding the same as it does now when 101.1 goes away, well, that's what cd players are for."Posted 4 months ago
A lot of us complained about the bad WVKO-AM audio quality on this board when WVKO-AM 1580 was progressive talk under Gary Richards a couple of years ago.
That station is now LMAed by a Catholic group and now nobody complains about poor audio on WVKO-AM anymore. The audio on 102.5 will eventually sound better, at least lets hope so.
