I am so happy Q101 is living on at Q101.com. otherwise iw ouldn’t know what else to listen to.Every morning I would hear Sherman and tingle, and in the afternoon it would be electra, and they made my day, everyday.I grew up listening to rock alternative music and I grew up with Q101. I just hope all the dj’s can come back on air too. That would be amazing.
THE SAYING THAT “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT ‘TILL IT’S GONE” IS CERTAINLY TRUE FOR ME WITH THE LOSS OF Q101. I DON’T EVEN TURN ON THE CAR RADIO ANYMORE. THERE IS NO STATION EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE TO THE ALTERNATIVE FORMAT. I’VE LOST ACCESS TO NEW MUSIC FROM THE BANDS I KNOW AND LOVE AND NEW BANDS I’VE NEVER HEARD OF. NOT TO MENTION SO MANY SPONSORED SHOWS(KEEPING TICKET PRICES DOWN). I WILL BE IN MOURNING UNTIL Q101 IS BACK.
