Oh hey all... I was listening to Greg and Renee's recent post (Finn Brothers' "Weather With You") and hearing a little of Dave's voice at the end was enough to get me reminiscing. I wrote a comment on Facebook and Greg asked if I had audio of Dave's last show (12/19/2008). I could've sworn I did, but I can't find it online now.

Does anybody else have a copy or a copy of the link I may have posted up?

Has KFOG retooled the format again? For some time now, every time I punched them up in the car, I'd hear something I didn't recognize (usually something loud and obnoxious), which led me to assume they must be very current-based. Today I tuned in and they were playing "Heart-Shaped Box"; I stayed with them and it was mostly old and familiar stuff -- Depeche Mode, RHCPs, even Gnarls Barkley. The few currents I heard were fairly poppish, like the new Vampire Weekend.

Meanwhile in the new July ratings, just released, they're stagnant at a 1.1, up a tick from 1.0.

KFOG isn't merely dead, it's really most sincerely dead: Next Friday, 9/6/19, the station will flip to being an FM simulcast of KNBR.

Looking at KFOG's TuneGenie listings, it appears they've stopped playing currents for their last week as a music station. It's all "classic alt" all the time, emphasis on the '90s.

ETA: apparently a Labor Day Weekend thing.

Per their FB page, Today (Wed 9/4) is a No Repeats "All Things Alternative" Wednesday, and tomorrow (9/5) is "For The Fogheads" -- they are soliciting song requests on FB, tho' I'm guessing most of the wackier suggestions I'm seeing (someone wants an entire Marillion album; yeah, sure, that might happen) won't make the cut :)

Best idea: "Thursday should be a marathon of old Dave Morey 10@10s"

Someone else stole my suggestion that the last song should be "I Smoke 2 Joints".

Unrelated rant: not sure who this Big-A guy is on the KFOG topic on Radio Discussion forums but he’s getting on my nerves...quite arrogant which wouldn’t be so bad except that he’s wrong about nearly everything, and tries to change the topic when he’s called out.

Ha! -- I saw your altercation with him. He's another know-it-all who knows nothing.

Wasn't their unofficial (official?) theme song the Stray Cats' Rock This Town?  Although
that hardly seems appropriate, given the circumstances.  I agree that Smoke Two Joints
is an excellent choice for their swan song.

It's great hearing Dave Morey, 10@10s, and the like  on the radio machine again, but it's
a bittersweet pleasure.  It just underscores how much has been lost and will never be
coming back.

Hey y'all, can someone please help me find a post that someone (not one of us, a newcomer I think) made to our forum with a link to a dropbox account that had several hundred MP3s of 10@10s dating back to the late 80s. I ran across it a few months ago while catching up here and thought I bookmarked it but can't find it now to save me.
I'm curious if it came from one of the people who've offered up their 10@10 collections to Greg and Renee's Patreon archive. I'm planning to do the same with mine, but it's fallen into some disarray over the last decade or so.
Let's get right to it.

ETA: oops I now see this wasn't what you wanted.  I'm not sure what link the one you're looking for was.
