    clear channel just switched the ONLY rap station in my area to fucking lite rock...

    it wasn;t even all rap, just a mixture or rock and rap...
    but come on...

    FUCK CLEAR CHANNEL

    this is like the 8th time in my memory that the channel has switched format...

    I don't listen to much rock or punk. A little here and there but I know where you're comming from.

    When they yanked Ms. Jone's from her Morning show on Hot97, I was mad as hell. That is by far my most favorite morning show.

    I'll sign the petition for you though.

    I don't really understand why they have a petition.

    one of the biggest stations here in MD WHFS99.1 turned into a mexican station and just like what you guys are doing everyone down here freaked out and went boo hoo hoo we want our 99.1

    Maybe your beloved rock station went to rap since the #s are not there for the rock station? Its pointless to keep airing a radio show that gets very low ratings.

    99.1 ratings sucked ass. so it went to something that brings in bettter ratings a mex station.

    wah wah wah.

    Just remember signing a petition doesnt do jack shit if the program goes back on the air and once again no one listens to it.

    BTW this shuold be posted in the regional forums

    that is a good point. But still, he asked for our help so we did. That might not bring it back but at least he tried. ohh well, good luck getting the station back(or at least somewhere else).

    just sign my petition and make me happy.

    the morning show was voted the best in the country this year so there ratings werent too bad. They got moved to 93.3, another station by me, but its the music im most pissed about. And even if it doesnt work i still tried.

    the peoples love for 99.1 was more important then the number of people that listened. has any other station siglehandedly hosted a 2 day concert with crowds ranging from 65,000-90,000 people? i just hope HFStival will still happen, but i dont know since i havent been in baltimore for over a month.

    and all the protests and petitions did bring back HFS. its now on baltimore's live 105.7 on nights and weekends. sucks but its better then nothing i guess. so good luck with your guys' petition.

    People love 99.1 because of what it was back in the earily to mid 90s
    HFStival has also went down hill over the years. every year I hear how its just not as good as it use to be.

    99.1 had VERY bad ratings yet people still bitched about it going off the air so now its on 105.7 in place of ron and fez and guess what it still sucks and chances are will be back off the air soon.

    99.1 was once an out going station that rocked. too bad that was many years ago.
    I use to have 99.1 on my radio everyday however in the last 5 years I've NEVER once made it a preset due to the station sucking.

    Y100 was the best station ever...damnit. I hope that petition works, I'll be getting my license in April and I would like to listen to something other than cd's all the time. That station was how I found new bands to listen to. We have like 6 freaking rap stations here...I hate it!
