5 Jan 2018: Interesting news...
« on: January 05, 2018, 07:32:48 AM »
Per the latest missive from KFOG PD Mat Bates, They're bringing back 10@10:

"We’ve spent a lot of time here at KFOG identifying how we can be the best community radio station for you, and on that note, we’ve got some major programming updates in 2018. I’ve been alluding to this, and without divulging it all at once- I can confidently tell you: KFOG’s legendary 10@10 program will return in 2018…very soon. KFOG’s own Steve Rockwell is hard at work creating the latest iteration of 10@10, and we can’t wait to get it on the air."

Wild guess: it won't go back further than 1980.

They're just saying "soon".

I'll probably listen to this, but I can't say I'm too excited. They burned 10@10 (and the rest of everything good about the old KFOG, except for Acoustic Sunrise/Rosalie) to the ground...bring it back just seems so...I dunno, watery. And signing on Rockwell as the host (although I don't mind him at all), seeing as he's the only remaining DJ (other than Rosalie...I don't count No Name) that resembles a link to pre-massacre KFOG, just seems like a desperate move to try to salvage former listeners.

the proof is in the pudding/music.  If they spin great shows, it will be somewhat forgiven.

Count me in the "that's nice but I'm not getting excited crowd".

If it's done really well, then to gould's point it'll be water under the bridge. But I just can't say I have enough faith in KFOG to do that right now. But I'm willing to be proved wrong.

Well put. I guess we should reserve comment until Rockwell has had a chance to get his footing and figure out how to put it all together.  But overall, this appears on its face to be just another of the many steps they're taking to walk back the (numerous) mistakes of 2016. Have they brought back the "World Class Rock" tagline yet?
Let's get right to it.

Yeah, that's true. Although the circumstances of Dave leaving and Annalisa leaving (the last time) were vastly different, AL has moved on and seems to be doing much better at The River anyway...so I guess there's no point in being offended that it's coming back without her.

This seems to be the pattern...make changes, backtrack, make changes, backtrack...except this time it's harder to backtrack.

Well, well...

KFOG has its 10@10 page up, but it's currently empty.

ETA:

10@10 Replay

10@10 Saturday Morning Marathon (which links to Rosalie's bio page)

Well, well...

Well, YEAH. It's a good great radio concept (and the reason we're here).

They're "smart" for bringing it back, all their prior corner cutting damage and clear-cutting efforts notwithstanding. I will adopt a wait and see attitude here.

TANC, my online radio stream is currently playing "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" by Heaven 17.

Soooo... I wondered what the latest on this was. Those 10@10 pages linked above remain blank. BUT... their "Programming Schedule" page

http://www.kfog.com/programming-schedule/

lists "10@10 with Rockwell" mornings at 10 (including Saturday!). So it's not clear whether they've started running it, or are about to, or... just indulging in wishful thinking.  Maybe I'll listen tomorrow morning to see what's up.

...and per the post by Radical347 in the Local radio News thread, KFOG is picking up the syndicated "Woody Show" (once heard on Live 105) for AM drive. Current morning host Alicia moves to middays and Rockwell is leaving... so that 10@10 reboot ain't happening, i guess.
