94.3 The Bone

April 21, 2011 @ 18:04

I know I shouldn't do this because it only gives them what they want, attention. But there's a 99 watt radio station in the asshole of America (Detroit) that's launched an attack blitz against Canadian radio.

By the way, I can spit further than 99 watts travels through the air, so it gives you some idea of their motives - they're a classic case of David.

The station is called 94.3 The Bone, it's a New Rock station and it's positioned against 89X in Windsor where Dean Blundell first made his mark.

But man oh man, what a pathetic attempt at funny. Here's their slogan.

"No lame Canadian rock. Just the best of today's new rock. American rock."

What a pile of crap. "No lame Canadian rock." Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of Americans tune in daily to not only 89X, but also Canada's Rock Station 100.7 The Rock, where I spend part of every Wednesday morning with Craig and Matt.

Ironically, like most businesses in Detroit, The Bone doesn't have any employees. The goddamn economy in Vacant City is so bad nobody can afford anything, so the spin on this Mickey Mouse operation is to have no jocks and pretend it's a strategy beyond having no money in a wiped out city in a failing country with a dollar that will soon be on par with river rock.

I know, I know I'm probably playing right into their hands by giving them space on this blog, which probably has way more readers than they do listeners, but what the fuck, I can't help myself. I often bask in American ignorance and this is the height of it because having no jocks has worked in just about nowhere.

Go ahead, check out the website and read some more of the dumb ass American shit they've come up with.

The Rock and 89X have nothing to worry about.

Who gives a shirt about an outhouse rock station in Detroit?
It' about the same level of interest to people as a rock station in say Peterbough.

Don`t worry about it Freddy.
Have you listened to the Bone,
Very lame. Some good Canadian rock could only improve that
station. I will have to admit,
they have a great handle, the bone. 89X far superior. Hey Drew
can`t afford your own ink?
Oh ya, Detroit, I forgot BROKE!!

Didn't JACK.FM try going "DJ-less" when they first went on air in Toronto? I think that lasted about 2 weeks.

The D rocks. Sure it's tough but it's a bastion of great music & culture. I could use a station without another Hip song

From wiki...The Canadian company Slaight Communications is also a minority shareholder in Martz. Slaight's ownership stake in Martz was not part of that company's sale of most of its broadcasting assets to Astral Media in 2007.

A Canadian minority shareholder contributing to all of this hate on Canadian Radio and music? Interesting indeed! Maybe Alan doesn't like Bell or CHUM or Canada?

Did you notice the one of the "Bone" girls on the website is Canadian? Sure looks like Pamala to me.

Gotta love the country I live in the good ol USA, you are spot on Fred, unfortunately they represent the few down here, and it obviously shows that their signal is so low.

Try finding the Cdn Rock/Pop in a Boom 97.3 music promotion, right here in T-dot. Not upon the bus shelter posters or background web collages, and maybe there's a one Bryan Adams for every 30 song snippets used on air.
