PLEASE EVERYONE -- Save my favorite station!!!!!

Everyone, I'm asking for your help. If you are a fan of rock, read on.

Read my post here: http://www.mazda3forums.com/viewtopi...hlight=#210861

Then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE sign the petition on this website: www.y100rocks.com

This was the only alt. rock station in Philadelphia, and it was a great one at that. They supported local bands, and raised alot of money for charity. Please HELP! Radio One needs to know they made a bad decision.

Feel free to e-mail the Executives.

Thank you!!

Feel sorry for you. At least it wasn't Clear Channel who converts rock stations to latino music.

That's so very very sad dude. I've been without a decent rock station in my area for YEARS... That's why I got an MP3 player!

If I have time later, I'll sign it dude!

I'd appreciate that! They got 8,000 signatures overnight (the statistics are available on their website), but I thought 6,000 more from here wouldn't hurt :-)

The company that owns WPLY Y100 in Philadlephia (and took them off air) is Radio One. They have some information about their company posted HERE for anyone who is interested.

In the meantime, I am saddened that a good deal of radio stations are being converted to pop music genres, which I don't always agree with. At this time, there are no other modern/alternative rock stations here (that I know of)

I'm equally going to miss the morning show with Preston, Steve & Kathy. There was another similar case about a radio station being pulled off air in the DC area (WHFS), but after enough people petitioned & protested, they were put back on as WXYV Live 105.7 in Baltimore... so I'm keeping hope.

I know most people won't care -- don't expect you to. :-) Just trying to get a few sigs from anywhere I can.

They did that in CT. Well, somethin like it. Converted the largest station in the state (an alt-rock station) into a crap rap/hip hop station, like a year or two ago.

Thanks, budgy! I also want to say thanks in advance to anyone who does this.

I didn't know this was happening to radio stations all over America until I started reading about it today.
