  1. I’m sure those added numbers of QM is because of the All Christmas music they were playing. The Breeze didn’t do its magic in Vancouver, not like in Edmonton. As for CKPK, I can only assume the ‘other’ numbers must be justifying its existence. Can anyone share any numbers?

  2. Despite its efforts to be cool and attract the youngins, NW posted a miserable, middle of the pack 6.1 share in the all-important Adult 25-54. Their talent and content is obviously off its mark if that demo is desired, which it is. Time for some wholesale changes.

  3. Jeff, just where in my previous post was the word ‘male’ used. If you’re going to review ratings, it might be helpful to understand how they’re broken down, and then attempt to relate that analysis to your station’s target demo—male or female and your programming content.

  4. How long can Sportsnet Radio survive? Canuck broadcasts did not help. They simply copied their rivals format anf failed. Even TSN 1040 format for Canucks broadcast was duplicated. I listen to CKSt between periods. I wonder which station is winning this battle?

  5. I used to enjoy 104.3 when it was LG. Now the music is either making me fall asleep or cry from sad songs. WHY did you change the format.LG was on to a good thing. The only thing I would have changed about LG was the afternoon host. Personality 0. Things that work in Edmonton don’t always work in Vancouver. Lets get some old rock back on that station! Hence the increase in 101.

  6. If you really want see some successful numbers at 104.3 FM, put back the veterans of CKLG like John Tanner, JB Shayne, Tom Jeffries, Re Robinson, and Terry David Mulligan “ON”.

    I am sure you will turn on a plethora of new listeners. How many more years will it take to get it right???
