9/15/2000: A Few Thoughts on "The Fox."
Aww man, the Fox has gotten so bad that I predicted the next song that would be on. I flip the radio on, and when I get to the Fox, a Zeppelin tune starts. It was one I had never heard the Fox play before. Anyways, I am sittin there diggin the tune, and then I think, "I bet that they play Papa Roach next." Sure enough, Todd Kangas comes on: "That was Zeppelin with Livin, Lovin...I love that song...let's keep it goin." (Papa Roach: Last Resort starts playing). Whether you love or hate Papa Roach, you have to admit that a drastic change like that does not sound good. I am sure most of the people that were listening to the Zeppelin tune tuned out when Papa Roach started. They gotta get with it at WWWX-FM. They probably won't considering that they are the top rock station in the Fox Valley. Oh well, just a few thoughts.
9/10/2000: The Fox Hires New Program Director
From the Post Crescent- The Fox recently hired Todd Kangas as the station's program director. Kangas previously worked at WGRD-FM, an alternative radio station in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he was the associate program director and on-air personality. -End Column
Ok, two things can happen here. Either the Fox will start sounding a little more like Lazer103 in Milwaukee, or else it will become more Alternative because of the new PD working at the Alternative Rocker in Michigan.
