FUCKING K-ROCK

THEY CHANGED FORMATS AGAIN!!!!!!!!

I was listening to the radio on Monday morning and noticed that Opie and Anthony were gone--a step in the right direction, in my opinion. Instead of those tools, they were playing rock blocks. I was hoping they were just keeping the morning slot warm for Booker, who just moved back to the station two months ago. I should have read the newspapers, because my theory was very wrong.

On the way home from work today, I stopped at Party City (the coolest place in the world). When I went in, there was rock music playing. When I returned to my car, it was fucking Eminem coming out of my speakers. I checked to see if accidentally put Z100 on, but I was wrong again. At 5pm today, the rock was over. 92.3 "NOW" is currently playing Top 40. Apparently they are playing 10,000 songs in a row with no commercials. There don't appear to be any jocks either. WTFUCK?

Speaking of the destruction of New York City, I spotted what was obviously a C.H.U.D. attack in the Village a couple weeks ago:

Ok, well, it may have been the Wolfen. The DNA samples haven't come back from the lab yet. Either way, I'd rather be attacked by an Urban Monster than be subjected to another fucking Top 40 station.

Fortunately, Matt Pinfield is here to save us:

Hey everyone- it's Matt!

NYC just lost another rock station…the legendary K-Rock. We are sad that many people have lost jobs and that the New York rock scene just lost an outlet. We play a lot of the music that K-Rock embraced, so we would appreciate your support if K-Rock was previously your preferred station.


And, to our faithful listeners, we appreciate your help in spreading the word about 101.
9 RXP-The New York Rock Experience! Maybe you can convert some old K-Rock listeners!

We thank you deeply for your support and welcome your feedback!

Keep Rockin!

Now that I think about it, I've seen Matt Pinfield tear up dumpster bins with his bare hands in the past. Maybe this is all part of his master plan to scare us into the hands of Alternative Radio. I'm on to you, Pinfield. I'm on to you.

I heard about the change. So fucking lame. Rock stations never last here, for whatever reason. and, while K-rock played a lot of crap, at least they played some fucking rock music!

You had my hopes up at Opie and Anthony being gone. Then dashed at Top 40. Then back up at the possibility of a C.H.U.D. sighting. What a ride this blog post has been.

Radio is basically dead. I'm not exactly enthusiastic over satellite radio either. I'll stick to my iPod and downloaded podcasts.. Heck, if Plowing Mud Forever would release a CD I can play in my car, then I wouldn't need to worry about New York's dead radio scene.

Was the radio industry in New York absent the day they handed out the New-York-City-is-the-center-of-the-universe memo. Must be the case. What else explains why radio in bofuck Marietta, GA is better than radio in New York, NY; furthermore, bofuck radio has never employed those boorish Opie and Andy dick-twit-fuck-prick-asses.
