Default DFW radio morning shows... finally... some hope?

So morning radio in DFW sucks more than my shop vac... with Roth on 105.3 and the Edge's crappy little gang, I have been finding myself listening to country music in the morning (96.3 KSCS). I just heard that the Edge's stupid little group got fired this morning... thank god!!! I always had to rush to change the station from my drive to work (102.1) to something else before I was subjected to their stupid arguments...

So the next morning show to be done away with will no doubt be David Lee Roth on 105.3....

Two questions for some discussion... What else is there to listen to in the mornings (besides CDs) that is worth a damn? And how long do you think it will take for Stern's replacement to be removed from DFW air?

I hardly ever change the station from 103.3 so I get a healthy dose of Mike & Mike on ESPN.

I was wondering why all of a sudden 102.1 would actually start to play music in the morning. I mean Jesus, what a concept and all.

But I usually listen to Mike and Mike on 103.3 ESPN. Even though Mike Golic can be a huge ninny.

This is what you get with "Free FM" teh Suck. I've seen all these billboards promoting "Free Radio" and crap like that but it sucks. Since replacing my factory stereo I don't get much reception for the local stations but they're not missed.

I listen to XM and CDs but mostly XM.

Don't get me started on Dallas radio...this market has the worst and has for over ten years. I blame it on being in the bible belt and corporate radio like Clearchannel...as soon as they buy into a market...it sucks. 1310 is the only great morning radio left in teh DFW and they are even feeling the heat from the parent company to turn down the language and subject matter.... That's why I got XM FTW....

The Edge morning show got fired because they sucked and so did their ratings.

Free FM (105.3 here in Dallas) offers some of the best radio on the FM dial IMHO... at least here in Dallas. Dallas radio (and most cities for that) started taking a crap in 1996 when radio was deregulated... instead of a company only being able to own 1 FM and 1 AM station, you now have these huge corporations buying sometimes dozens of stations in one market... then they follow the trends in music instead of following a fan base. This results in (at least in the Dallas area) the highest ratings going to Latino and African-American focused stations which cause the corporations to flip more of the stations over to those areas (i.e. 97.1's flip last year).

So yes... I primarily listen to 105.3 KLLI or CDs now.... only occasionally turning the radio on to either hear what is new in the top 40s (since that is all any stations plays) or to get a little country (96.7/96.3.... I don't listen to 99.5 because of 1 DJ they have).

Monsters in the Morning on XM 152. 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. Good stuff, and they're based out of Whorelando...

Only good local station got killed a few years ago. BPM(AKA 106.7). Good dance/techno, turned thug, turned latino.

Yeah I don't know what happened with that, it just gradually morphed into the Casa. I don't mind reggaeton here and there but not the whole station dedicated to it. It gets repetitive after a while.

Only local stations I listen to is 90.1(NPR), and 106.1. They're actually tolerable. Everything else around here blows. If I don't listen to those, I turn my radio off.
