As far as 99x getting wild and pushing the boundaries, maybe a good alternative/rock mix show would be good idea on weekend nights, consisting of rock, alternative electronica, and other "rock associated material" if you know what I mean. I don't know how to explain it, but I've heard some rock/alternative stations do this. I guess "remixes of Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Gravity Kills, and yes, what about some Lords of Acid"
is a good enough example. Maybe an example of rock influenced electronica would be some Daft Punk, or maybe even some... well, "Save the world" by Swedish House Mafia, etc. They could also use the Skratch N Sniff syndication (if they're still in business) where they do a dual dj show of rock and hip hop mixes and mash ups.
Cool, they are trying to become the next WILD in San Fran. I like that.. Signal wise for 105.7 and 96.7 = DUMP. Fix the signal and voice promos/tracking and then i'll applaud...but adding a mix show on noons is nothing...
Actually, it is something for mixshow fanatics, dance fans, or people who want a little something extra. Maybe it's not as beneficial as being on a sufficiently fully powered signal, but it's better than just the same ol' same ol' regular playlist music all day long. It would be great if they had morning mixes as well. Not sure if that will happen with a syndicated morning show, but I've heard stations with syndicated morning shows still conveniently slip in locally scheduled studio mix shows as well.
WiLD San Fransisco is nice, but I believe that WWVA has been programmed for the Atlanta market, due to the fact that they give a lot of attention to the bass remixes of some hits (in addition to the club remixes they use as well), and Atlanta is known as the former booty bass capital of the world... ... (ok, SECOND bass music capital of the world (I do not want to upset the Miami Bass folks again - yes, Miami was the true pioneer of bass!)). I think I actually like WiLD Atlanta better than the San Francisco WiLD when it comes to regular playlist, although the San Fransisco station "pushes the boundaries" a bit more often with more mix shows.
Wait... 99X pushing the limit??? NEVER! That's another story though.
Feel free to discuss / present the story. As long as it's within the lines of, or could be considered as "Wild things happening", it will fit within the topic of this thread!
