There’s nothing new to add to the schedule, but I just want to ask if any of you have seen the Kiss FM commercial where they smash the Virgin star logo. I have only heard about it – apparently it ran on City TV recently. I’m not really sure what they are trying to say – are they implying that they are out to “beat” the competition? Is Virgin their biggest competitor? Because when it comes to ratings, Virgin is leagues above Kiss – smashing the star only makes it look like they’re just mad and jealous. What did YOU think when you/if you saw that commercial??
Of course the stations are all competing for listeners, and that’s why we have so many great contests coming up during the ratings sweeps, but trashing another station doesn’t seem like the best route to success. It’s kind of like slagging the cool girl to make yourself feel better…
By now you’ve heard that Z-FX is coming back (OMGOMGOMG) and they aren’t even waiting for September – it starts next Monday! Way to get a jump on everyone else – surely many listeners are returning from vacations and gearing up for PNE and back-to-school preparations. I know many of you have had it UP TO HERE with Z-FX and have sworn off it completely, but I have a feeling that you will be tuning in despite yourself! For me at least, the difficulty level and reward are enough to make me tune in. Unlike LG’s 1 second song, which I find far too difficult to even attempt, there is at least a slim chance of guessing it. I also enjoy 101’s Mystery Laughs, so I hope they bring that back too. It’ll probably happen after the ACDC contest though.
Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
