Okay, so Rawlco's UP 97.7 hits an all time low after having its specialty license condition removed.

Time to go Country?

And Rawlco's response is?

Voice track it out of Edmonton.

How can Rawlco be so successful in Edmonton and fall flat on their asses in Calgary? The poor Rawlco execs to have to come to HQ each day in a building that houses their worst performing
station. The one that hardly has any staff. Low overhead. Even lower ratings. Sell it to Harvard, they could use a second station in Cowtown, and make it successful.

Weren't these the same people who totally screwed up the old XL 1140 AM when it became 96.9 Kiss FM?

Holy freakin' sheep shit. QR is down 3.5 shares from a year ago?

I guess the loss of Rutherford, their superb flood coverage and new daytime lineup has had the same effect on their listeners as a can of Drano into a grease filled drain pipe!

They must be operating on the same steroids as their sister station in Vancouver.

Bring back Concert Hall.

Maybe they should run CHED programming all the time, it worked so well for them during the floods. CHED would then finally have coverage south of Edmonton.

Side by side numbers for CHED, CHQR and CKNW really tell the tale. These are from David Bray's very public web site, not from a stolen peek at some station's BBM service.

These are the SHARE numbers for a few demographics, with CHED first, then CHQR followed by CKNW:

Everyone 12 years of age and older: 9.8, 6.9, 7.9
Women 25-54: 3.3, 2.2, 2.1
Men 25-54: 11.6, 3.0, 3.9

These numbers are Monday-Sunday, 5am-1am. They differ from the standard public numbers shown above, which I believe start at 2 years old, and also cover all nights.

Without Eskimos and Oilers, CHED's 25 - 54 Men would be in the same ballpark as NW's and QR's.

And considering the records of said teams, I think they're lucky to be where they are.

Interesting point.

Which got me to take a look at Men 25-54. Since Football was over, we can concentrate on Hockey. CFAC has the Flames in Calgary. I'm assuming that 1040 has the Canucks and 1410 has the Lions.

CHED = 11.6
Calgary = 6.3 CFAC + 3.0 CHQR = 9.3
Vancouver = 3.9 CKNW + 6.4 Team 1040 = 10.3

Dunno what that tells me. And I also wonder what I should do with the 4.9 number generated by Team 1260 in Edmonton?

This may or may not be true:
Dave Rutherford found out about QR's new numbers and within hours, had to be sent to a secluded wing of a nearby hospital, then sedated in order to stop his round the clock hysterical laughing. They do say radio is a dangerous game.

Wow...

I knew CHQR's numbers would slip, but not to this extent...not this quickly, at least.

While I know that the problems stem from much deeper issues, messing with the stations branding, the handling of the flood coverage and how they handled Dave Rutherford's departure certainly didn't help them, that's for sure.

Where they lost a lot of credibility with me as a listener was them touting how they were 'the station to turn to in an emergency', and in two recent emergency events they had no ability or desire to be that station to turn to. Dead air and then an out of town simulcast is not 'being there'.
