The format changes aren't perfect but they have put some good music into the mix - recently I've heard Husker Du, Sun Kil Moon, Luna and the Replacements. I did enjoy some of the Americana that was played under the old format but it did get old after a bit. Yes, they do have some music in heavy rotation that I could do without but you can't have everything I guess.....

WNKU has made a format change? When did this happen? what is the new format? I rarely listen(ed) to WNKU.
Just before Sledge started working there.

We watch a lot of Octonauts on Netflix. The 2 year old loves it and we kind of like it too. I think it's out of Australia.

My wife has started watching Reading Rainbow with the kid too.
Vegimals, man. Vegimals.

I also think that because there are more options today, that is part of the reason it seems so bad. Say, 25% of kids shows are good, you're looking at 4 out of 12 or 40 out of 120...
I still love Reading Rainbow, and I miss 3-2-1 contact.
And there were some crazy kids shows in the 80s, I know! (Rainbow Brite, for example)

I think the change is a step in the right direction, although they still need more (and supposedly there are still changes coming behind the scenes). The old WNKU was almost strictly an Americana/folk station, which got boring to me pretty quickly. The new stations has a much better variety to it whole still playing older good stuff (hey look, a local station that will play the Replacements!). I am still listening to The Current all day at work, but WNKU got me to change my car from WVXU to a music station, which says a lot.

But from what I've been reading about it, the change doesn't sound positive at all to me.  Computer-generated music, a heavy rotation "hits" format...

I heard the same.

I'm not knocking the change, because it's better than the other pop-alternative radio stations in town (The Project, I'm looking at you), but there's precious little freedom for the WNKU DJs...but then some of them need all the help they can get because they are clueless about the "new" music. Tame Llamas! Tame Llamas!

I enjoy Trash Flow Radio on WAIF 88.3 FM.  It's on Saturdays from 3 PM To 5 PM.  More rock oriented than a lot of pop "alternative" programs, which is probably why I like it.

As for the WNKU format change, I have only listened to the station a few minutes here and there for over a year--I didn't even realize there was a format change.  But from what I've been reading about it, the change doesn't sound positive at all to me.  Computer-generated music, a heavy rotation "hits" format...Sounds like the things a lot of listeners tuned in WNKU to get away from.

I completely understand waiting for a lineup announcement. I end up going to Columbus a few times a year (like this Friday) and usually for Promowest gigs. They pretty much run Columbus and a venue in Pittsburgh. The do a great job up there and I trust they will do a good job on Bunbury. If anything I'd hope they would take over booking at Bogart's as well.

He's on today? Wow. Cool and weird on the timing.

I'm listening to it right now since I have a rare opportunity to listen to tunes while I work. It's good.
