Hell it's all they are talking about on 102.9 now. Since they announced it they've mentioned the Preds coming in and out of every commercial break......that my friend is priceless advertising.

Exactly, but at least you had a chance to hear something about hockey. Do you think 102.9 will be better?

Yeah, I've been listening today too. I hope they will have some 15-30 second, maybe longer, interviews with players that will play a couple times a day.

Ziggz, the afternoon guy, does interviews a lot so i'm sure that's very possible. They're all over facebook and twitter make a suggestion or two i'm sure they'll do anything that is that easy to help get extra listeners during the broadcasts.

Guys, let's face it. When the Zone had just Vandy and the Preds to broadcast, they STILL talked more about what the majority of their listeners wanted to hear:

1) Titans/pro football
2) College sports
3) MLB
4) Predators, basically when something happened, or all the other sports had played out.

Since the Titans came over and they announced the UT deal, they have hardly mentioned the Preds at all. Covering UT during basketball season would have left no airtime during the stretch run when NHL coverage DOES get interesting for the casual fan. The Zone was just a bad fit now.

As I said earlier in the thread, if you were the new mgmt team, how can you sit back and watch as you are bumped down to the lowest possible level OF coverage on that station? That is a 'lose-lose' situation'. WNSR (especially Thom Abraham) does cover the team alot. Unfortunately they have non-existent coverage after dark, so you can't go with them for broadcasts. I am not a fan of the station's format but it goes on my car preset now.

I think that they needed their own station but I don't think the buzz is the best alternative. 105.9 the Rock would have been better not because it's a better station but I can get that one and I can't get the Buzz. Not just because of that but The Rock is more established. But just like Vandy the Preds are a city team mostly. A city team can't support a major league franchise unless it's a major city. Nashville is Titans and Vols. Vandy would push the Vols but they are bad so beside the faculty and former alumni nobody cares until basketball season. If they were to become winners they would pass the Vols but they won't consistantly. The Preds just need to go deep in the playoffs and then once the city is capture by the national attention then they'll jump on board. Did I mention Nashville is a front runner. Most sports towns are unless they enjoy sucess and then it takes on it's own identity.

I'm not sure how The Rock is more established. Both stations are popular, but the Buzz does have its own annual concert. That doesn't even include the several unplugged shows they put on throughout the year and other events they sponsor or bring in. They have a pretty firm foothold in Nashville. I like The Rock better because it's less likely that I'll hear a string of awful songs, but their demographic isn't exactly the best to target. They have the football/NASCAR crowd. The Buzz has a younger crowd, which I think will benefit the Predators more. I think it's a good move in theory, but I'll remain skeptical until I hear a couple of broadcasts.

If previous years have proved anything, I think the answer is 365.

Does that bottom map say there's a repeater in Decatur, AL, on an AM station? I'm going to have to go scan the AM stations now, lol...

Once you find it, please post it so I can program it in for my trips to Athens.


As an aside, I heard some hockey talk on 104.5 sometime this week. I can't tell you how much it was, since I only got to listen briefly, but it was definitely that station.

That's been an issue since I moved to Nashville in 2004. It's weird, it doesn't knock out XM or other stations...

It's a matter of direction. Because of the tower's lower sea level tall buildings and such might block out the signal. Whereas XM is satellite radio and the signal comes straight down. Think sunlight. If it's noon sunlight is everywhere but when the sun is setting the light is hitting buildings and creating shadows.

Nah, that signal goes a lot farther than you think and is strong in Nashville. I would bet a paycheck that baptist is broadcasting something right on/next to that frequency that interrupts the signal.

Btw, I was listening to them on the way to wisconsin this summer and got good signal until about 45 miles outside of Louisville.

I agree with these two! Rock music and hockey DO go together very well. Hockey is just a rock kind of sport. I, too, rarely stray from the Buzz if I'm listening to the radio. But I digress. This switch will take some getting used to - the Buzz is a music station whereas the Zone was a sports station, so I wonder if music fans will be pissed that the Buzz airs the hockey games all the time. How does this affect them as a music station? As for losing Willy, that
kind of sucks but it's not too bad. I'm sure they can find a good replacement. Overall, this is a good move. We'll get better coverage of the games than slotted third.

My coworker was telling me this morning that he can't pick 102.9 anywhere around his place in Bellevue. Wonder if something is near there that blocks the signal, as well.

Oh, yes, thanks for the radio station numbers, BFC.

Do you know if the crew for the shows will be the same? Kirby? Jacob? They're employed by the Zone, I'm assuming.

I was cool with the station switch before. Now I just love it. Good to hear Daunic is hanging around.
