Listener Comments and Reviews

Why do you endorse onair bullying? Specifically the morning show free beer and hot wings. Making fun of how people look and talk is bullying and most definitely not entertainment the way they do it. It seems even whoever the KTUX Messenger is also enjoys calling names and making fun of peoples concerns. Just because I and my co-workers would rather not hear the bullying drivel aired each morning? Yeah, I do miss Bob and Tom. At least they were entertaining.

Free Beer and Hot Wings morninging show is bad enough. Last week morning drive was great....just good music. Now we are going to have the horrific Walton & Johnson show spewing garbage. I like to think we are a more progressive listening audience. Guess I was wrong.. I am embarrassed for those that listen to W & J. At least we have the power in our hands to choose not to listen 98.9.

I can't believe the only real rock station in the area has sold out to Walton & Johnson(redneck crap) and that there is no longer a true rock station in the area! Don't get me wrong, I like classic rock as well but would really prefer to listen to new rock with some classic mixed in like the old format! I now have to listen to cd's or to my phone! No more radio listening for this rocker!!

What happened to my modern and sometimes classic rock station ?! It was the only one we had ! Mandatory Metallica ! Road Rage ! We already have a classic rock station !! What’s this Highway 98.9 mess ?! 90’s to current rock. What’s wrong with that ? I already rarely listened to 98Rocks now this will be another classic rock station I’ll rarely listen to. Good job. Way to kill modern rock and roll in the area.

So we have two classic rock stations and no modern rock station. Who's dumb idea was that? Well I guess 98.9 (99X) will now be banned in my vehicle and 98.1 (98Rocks) went from my #2 to now my default #1.

Love the W & J in the morning. I now listen to the highway all day. Great job

I've recently have been subjugated to your horrendous morning show again. Free propaganda and hot wings is the reason I stopped listening to your station. Well, that, and your format sucks. I never complained before. I just turned the dial. But since I am being forced to listen to this crap in the work truck, I feel I have a right. They suck and you suck for airing them. Have a nice day.
