KROX Tries Not To Suck

rm_hotline.jpgIf you listen to 101X at all, you’ve been hearing promos from the relatively new program director, Lawless. They had a poll on their home page up until today asking for music preferences and other input. I filled it out, but since I lamely waited until today tp post about it, you can’t see for yourself. I was going to give them shit for asking a question that expected a single response, but allowed multiple (side effect of being a geek who worked at a market research firm), but I missed my chance. They do still have a link on the site to call or e-mail, so I included it as well.

I’ve been spending more time than usual with them this week because it was fund drive week on KUT and we all know how much fun that is. 101X seems to be paying attention to it or at least making an attempt. I heard “God Save the Queen” on either Monday or Tuesday morning and then “Losing My Religion” was on Tuesday morning. I know it’s not that much of a stretch, but at least it’s not playing Fall Out Boy over and over again. Lawless was at KNAC KNNC, arguably KROX’s predecessor from the early 90’s. He replaced Melody Lee, who also worked at KNAC KNNC and took off at the end of last year for greener pastures.

    KNNC was KROX’s predecessor. KNAC was an all heavy metal format station in Long Beach, California that went off the air in the mid 1990s.

    You’re absolutely right. I was confusing the station’s nickname, “K-Nack”, with its call letters. Thanks for keeping me honest.
