    If you wish to get my attention on the radio, try xm Patriot channel, or "Prime Country" ... it about all I listen too.

    I lost interest in am radio way back when Steve's daddy was doing the overnight show.

    Ah ... I think this is BS.

    Who's we?

    The show has ads they have to fulfill, but outside of that, the host has the latitude to plug events - a lot of radio hosts do that all the time.

    I think the hosts are just messing with you, or they have crappy ratings and the station manager has them on a short leash.

    Re: 700 wlw and bubba bo!

    wlw doesn't realize they are losing out on potential 5000 new listeners? I usually listen to whatever country radio station I can find on the road, but if I was at the expo and someone was broadcasting a show about trucking, I might have been inclined to listen as I didn't know there were trucking shows on the radio.

    The expo is also for people who've never been in the business and are looking to enter it. If the two hosts were willing to travel there on their own dime and record their show for there, basically wlw is losing out on free advertising to a new "captivated" market.

    "Squirrel" has one foucs .... MONEY! That's what they pay him for, (in comissions) .... some of you may remember RJ Taylor, and "Ol Blue".

    A 1951 Kenworth that appeared for many years at all the major truck shows. Usually working with law enforcement, to promote both safety and understanding between the two groups, (truckers and LEO).

    RJ, in th early years was always invitged to visit with Bozo on the show, Then Jim (Squirrel), realized they were not accomplishing anything towards Bozo's 401K .... and those times came farther and farther apart.

    Maybe I should state it this way, do you haul freight for free?

    Maybe that is also WLW's take, pay us, we'll do it?

    And, btw, what good does it do to type in all caps? No one likes to be yelled at.

    Re: 700 wlw and bubba bo!

    Well the expert curmudgen speaks again, and as always, he knows better then those involved...

    H*ll yes its about sponorship/advertising dollars, as was asked, "do you haule freight for free?" Poor ratngs??? Please....yes the on air personality has some sway as to plugging certain events, but in this case their is a line in the sand from station management...You want to hear about the "Epediting Niche" in the Trucking Industry" on a National Trucking show, with a live broadcast from a live event, then sponsor/advertising dollars make a difference...as it should be....

    As for WLW worrying about losing listeners, if you already don't know about WLW and there programs, chances are they aren't worried about you....

    I believe a arrangement is already in place with Dave Nemo since that is advertised on the expo website. Hey, I've been on his show before. As for Sommers, never been on his show, but did go on a cruise with him and his wife. Both are different types of shows with their own audience.

    Tell wlw



    If you build it, they will come.

    If they promoted expediting, they'd probably be the first radio station to cater to expediting and thus be the first place for companies that expediting vendors would go to advertise.


    However sounds like wlw would rather cut off their nose to spite their face.

    It wasn't going to cost wlw anything but they refuse to allow the show to be done there? Pretty silly and childish behaviour.

    Re: 700 wlw and bubba bo!

    You know guys, it seems to me that you need to get your heads out of your ,,,,, and think for a moment.

    The show is about trucking, there are different subjects they can talk about and putting a plug or two into the shows contents is done often on different shows. For that matter, even call ins are allowed to plug different events, like MATS and Wounded Warriors. It does not happen at the station level but at the show level. If they wanted to talk about the expo, they could, just like they could talk about the weather unless the shows producer and hosts are in such a bad way with the station management where the show is completely in control.

    I still call it BS.

    Re: 700 wlw and bubba bo!

    Unless I miss my guess, and I think I'm right on the money ... EO is a "for profit" operation. Should EO provide free advertising to, say, Landstar, or Load 1?

    I know that is why Truck,Net failed, they begged for favors, but hardly ever returned them.

    The folks here at EO seem to have the situation under control, why not allow them to handle the business end of the deal, and not sour WLW from ever mentioning them again?

    As someone who had a brother who was a station manager and program director at the top station in a top 25 market, I can tell you unequivocally that it's not BS. The Expo may be an event, but it's a commercial event, and they aren't likely to devote in-studio interviews and plug-time for the Expedite Expo any more than they would the boat show event, the home builders show event, or any other convention center type event unless advertising dollars are spent at the station. At most, they might make a brief mention of it because it might interest a small portion of their audience (and even that's doubtful unless one or more of the Expo vendors is also an advertiser on the station, and that vendor asked them to do a plug), but they aren't going to devote a half hour or more for exclusive on-air time to promote a sliver subsection of the industry for a commercial event that isn't advertised on the station.
