How many damn old rock stations do we need here seriously?? Why can't these fools ever try something different that we've never had before in this town like alternative rock?? Please don't say Kiss is alt rock because it's not. Two country stations, two top 40 ones, tons of Spanish stations, and magic, jack, and others that play mostly older crap. Where's the the modern/hot ac format playing the newest stuff like in other cities across America?? No reason why we shouldn't have an alt rock format here. It is very long over due.

I think the alternative rock could be played on KISS or 97.7 because both of them have a small repertoire of new stuff. I personally want a station that plays a wider variety of popular music that I've heard in Austin and another hip/hop/r&b station for competition. I think we have more than 2 country stations, don't we? I actually enjoyed the talk radio format on 106.7, now, we're just stuck with the ultra-conservative line-up again.

If you liked the old format, blame it on your age group. The 25-34s like their iPods more than the radio. The 35+ classic rock fans can still be counted on to tune in.

Most of the 106.7 talk lineup moved down the dial to 92.5, where it was kept mostly intact and in the same time slots until Clark Howard was moved to evenings a couple of weeks ago. Those shows can still be heard there.

Okay, thank you. I actually do listen to my mp3 player more than the radio because the radio stations here suck. Most of the music on my mp3 player is kind of old because music these days is terrible.

Kiss has one of the shortest playlists I've ever heard. 97.7 needs to boost their power, reception is crap for me on the far west side.

KRTU 91.7 has a decent indie rock show at night usually. Sometimes I tune out though because some nights can be totally different than another. Good music, new, but made by people who love music, so lots of it can sound like old music.

I miss KONO when it played 50's music.

My mp3 player gets more play usually anyways.

Yeah, I moved to 92.5 The Patriot.
Personally, I am sick of 106.7 constantly changing formats every few months. Make up your mind already and just stick with something...

KSYM 90.1 is mostly alternative but they recently started playing texas country music from around 3-6pm. What does that tell you? Hmm, just had a thought; I suppose Texas Country is alternative.. Hmm interesting.
But my point is this, I enjoyed 90.1 for their alternative; Electrelane, The Foals,Kula Shaker, The Killers, Audio Bulleys, Shy Child, Digitalism etc..., just to name a few

Wow, really? I did listen to 90.1 for a while because the CD player in my Jeep broke and all I had was the radio. I really liked the station, it reminded me of the alternative college stations I always enjoy; but since putting in a new stereo I mostly listen to my Zune or a CD. As Bowie said, many are choosing to listen to MP3 players and their own playlists instead of the radio.

That, and most of the current pop chart is crap!

I think radio, much like newspaper, may find its market quickly disappearing thanks to alternative sources...

Cheers! M2
