    I won’t pretend I know the answers because I’m no longer in the business but I’m sure personnel reading this know. The question is, will those who know, post answers, or tell us about their competition. It’s your move.

    Z-100’s Johnjay and Rich morning show is beamed in from 104.7 KISS FM in Phoenix, the show is also on My 99.9 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, 96.1 KISS FM in Fort Collins, Colorado, and on 93.1 All The Hits in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to what I find via google…

    At KXJM, I believe it’s APD/MD Kristina with K in mornings

    KPOJ is live in the morning, and I enjoy the show. Saw Carl at the Komen event today.

    On that note, the numbers are way down from the politics gaffe. Hope they rebound, because I’ve got friends and such associated with the event. I like it, because it’s a Father Daughter and friends tradition we will keep up, even through the ugly goings on. Our group all thought it about the same, annoyed at how poorly it ran this year. Abortion doesn’t cause breast cancer, lol!!

    So, he was there talking to people, nice to shake a hand and exchange a few words.

    The kids next to me? “What the fuck is AM 620 KPOJ?”

    So I replied, “It’s liberal talk radio –we are gonna get Obama elected again this year.” They say, “Oh cool! Does my radio do AM?” The radio app mention was most relevant, linking it to other things they are familiar with.

    They use radio, but they can’t really identify with the old formats. Now, they did identify with Z100, and some of the other more relevant brands. Our group was composed of very old to very young. Abstract branding, like “AM 620 KPOJ” doesn’t work AT ALL with them. Even the FM stations being discussed worked that way. Their references were all indirect, or single word. To be fair, they were all way outside any demo that would seriously consider talk, though the 30+ among us did know what the station was, and I met a fellow listener in the group I didn’t know about.

    “The Mike and Amy station” works for them too. That’s what I mean by indirect.

    It’s my observation that a morning show anchors the station for that crowd, making the brand accessible, and that cross media promotion would really be a net gain.

    Had that 620 booth referenced Obama, Portland talk, “Keeping it weird”, or some other PDX reference, it would have made more sense to them.

    Daily relevance again… I swear, radio needs to get a whole slug of 20 somethings and put them on air and give them some rope. Good stuff would happen, particularly if multiple media forms were used.

    I’m not sure how to answer the question, because I am unsure of the definition of “morning show”.

    Is a *team* of people in the studio a necessary ingredient? (like Mike and Amy) How about one live person in the studio announcing and commenting on the music being played? (like KQAC, KMHD). How about shared national and local effort? (Like NPR “Morning Edition”).

    “I swear, radio needs to get a whole slug of 20 somethings and put them on air and give them some rope. Good stuff would happen…” It worked for Kisn!

    …radio needs to get a whole slug of 20 somethings and put them on air…

    It’s been tried; search archives for “The Debate Hour.”

    Some of the FM Shows listed as “Live” are they really? Many parts of some of these shows are voice tracked. That’s not live in my book.

    Do you mean the 5:00 A.M. hour? I judged the bulk of the time the air shifts are live.

    No, 94.7, 98.7, 105.9, & 106.7 have major parts of their shows voice tracked. The “Talent” during these times have other duties at their stations so they voice track portions of their shows to compensate for being unable to be on the air.

    KNRK 94.7

    KUPL 98.7

    The Brew 105.9

    KLTH/Oldies 106.7
