Here we go again...we now have a great soul station back in philly...and its in last place in the ratings...If we dont start supporting this station Clear channel will certainly change the format again...WAKE UP.....spread the word to family and friends ..or you will wake up one morning..and it will be gone...no one else plays solid soul gold...and we wont be able to hear these great soulful oldies....no more james Brown,wilson pickett,otis redding...so philly wake up and spread the word...WDAS AM is playing the greatest music ever made...this is a historic station and we need to support it or it will be gone....Maybe we need to just do 50s and 60s on this station.. and bring back some old jingles and commercial spots to make it fun.....anybody think that would help?
Maybe Butter and those in management need to tweak this station a little better...and stick to 50s and 60s for those of us in our 50s and 60s...who would still listen to AM radio...if they played the songs from our era.. and made it fun as well....Come on ...any suggestions?
I've heard this station on line and I think it's cool! I like that they play many hits that while they didn't score well on the pop singles chart, did well on the soul/r&b charts. I also think it would be a shame if it didn't get traction and went away. I know that my idea of having the station survive on sources of revenue in addition to advertisement is probably something that likely wouldn't fly with the powers-that-be and if so, that's a shame. I'm not just talking about donations either. Maybe sponsor a dance, car/bike/scooter show, concert or something else.
Now with regard to advertisement revenue, the station should among other sources consider getting advertisement form manufacturers like Gruendig who make high quality AM radios. Also, from what I understand WDAS puts out a nice rich signal, and this is something that the station should promote!
