You have broken my heart! For over 15 years I had listened to your station when living in Marco during the season. Now that I am home in Mass I can no longer hear your station.. Please work on fixing this problem There is no place around here that plays great music like your 101.1
By: Ray Gauthier on November 19, 2015
I agree with the last comment - PLEASE make WAVV available over the Internet. We don't have a radio or stereo and can only listen to streamed stations! Also please provide a list of recently played songs so when we hear something we love - which is often - we could purchase the song!
Thank you for the great music!
By: Dee Erickson on November 21, 2015
FM 101.1 Played a song come rain r shine around 10:45 am this morning 11-21-15. Can you tell me who the singer was. I have a friend Tony Lynn Washington who sounds very much like the singer in that song. Was it her singing?
By: John on November 22, 2015
I have listened to your station since moving here, I love it.I have told all my customers about you, since I listen to the radio while working in thier homes. You play a Vince Gill song "If ever you have forever in mind" which is is so beautiful. I would not have known About this song if of for your station
By: Joseph Cacciatore on November 24, 2015
The song was playing march 6 2016 at 8:05 but shortly chaged after, it was a instrumental. Looking for it going crazy

By: Craig Wilkin on May 13, 2016
Could you play less Sinatra, Streisand and Tony Bennett and more Josh Groban, Rod Stewart and Billy Joel? Especially after 3:00 pm.
By: Joan Ashcraft on May 24, 2016
'Fever' sung by female around 11:00p.m. Wednesday June 29th. ..Her name please.

There was an instrumental version of the Offenbach's Barcarolle "The Tales of Hoffman" on Sunday October 2/16 at about 3:48 . I was wondering if is possible to know the name of this orchestra and version. I think that is a modern beautiful version of this classic master piece. Thanks a lot for your attention
By: German Rodriguez on October 2, 2016
Today at around 6:20 p.m. you played a latin-type song L liked but I don't know who it was. Can you tell me? Sunday Jan. 29.

When will your station be returning to the internet?
By: Rich Flanddr on March 12, 2017
Retiree from NYC now in Ft Myers. Found your station and love it ! Have searched and searched for a similar streamed station to no avail. Any plans to resume streaming ? Your station has many fans who would enjoy your resumption !

Looks like everyone loves this beautiful poolside music. I was on vacation there and now moving there, this station will be playing day and nite by my patio. Please help me find a stream for NY.. Thanks
By: Angela Trano on May 4, 2018
Hear a wonderful singer Sun. 6/16/18 at around 8:45AM. She sang Over The Rainbow. She had the most perfect pitch and breath control as well as one of the beautiful voice I have ever heard. As a singer my entire life I have never been so impressed. Please let me know who she is. Thank you, Mario Di Rosa
By: Mario Di Rosa on June 16, 2018
I always had your station when I was in Collier county and listened regularly online. Apparently the station pod cast has been off line for some time.
Will we ever be able to listen on line again ? ..
By: Robert Cruz on July 4, 2018
You just played a tune I've been trying to find the name of its an instrumental the voices start by singing ahhh a piano, flute and it may be whistle sound through the tune.Fades at the end of the tune. Love it and its not played enough. Thanks
By: nancy parsons on November 29, 2018
Love your station!
How can I purchase an artist's music without their name and song name?
Do you you provide acces to your music by the hour/minute with the artist and song?
By: Paul Astles on December 22, 2018
I heard a theme song today it was amazing and while i listened to it, i thought of my childhood and my children's childhood and how my kids and i would rent Disney movies and have snacks. I am sure the song was fron a Disney movie. It was played April 7th at 12:15 in the afternoon. If possible i would like to have this song played at my son's wedding and the song we dance to. Please respond if you are able. Thank you
By: Amy on April 7, 2019
Only listen to your station. Wonderful. Bought new radio. 101.1 has conflicting sounds. Please help
By: Vic Strich on May 11, 2019
It is Thursday, 6/6/19, and I need your help. Several days ago on your station a female vocal artist rendered the song "Bridge over Troubled Waters" and it was beautiful. Could you possibly provide me with the name of the artist?
By: Fred Bode on June 6, 2019
STATION IS GREEEAAT
MUSIC FROM MY OFFICE TO MY CAR TO MY PATIO
IT IS ALL GOOD
THERE IS ONE SONG THAT I HAVE HEARD A FEW TIMES ON YOUR PROGRAM THAT IS A FULL ORCHESTRA WITH A HINT OF SPANISH FLAVOR.
VERY SMOOTH AND WONDERFUL...
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR
IT AGAIN AND KNOW WHAT THE NAME OF THE SONG
By: NORM on August 21, 2019
Hi, we have been enjoying your station for over 5 years now. Could you please help me out with the artist or orchestra that you often feature as the instrumental version of "somewhere, beyond the sea"? I have found many versions but none capture the magic of the version you feature! I would be most grateful!! Thank You! Carrie, Palm Island, Florida
By: Carrie on November 3, 2019
While listening on Wednesday November 6, 2019, between the hours of 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, we heard an older love song but with doubts or suspicion there might be another person his love was interested in. The vocalist is male with a soul type voice. We cannot place the song or artist but are eager to learn who it was. The word suspicion is in the lyrics. Please help

When are you going to start playing Xmas music before Dec. 24th?
By: Jim B. on December 2, 2019
Why arent you playing Christmas music???
By: Lori on December 4, 2019
Listening to your station as usual. It is Friday, 12/6/19. Different format today, not complaining at all, just something I noticed. Am I correct?
By: Joe Cacciatore on December 6, 2019
We listen to you every evening but your music has changed today. We will not be listening if this continues.
By: John Miller on December 6, 2019
I have listened to your station for 23 years and think it is by far the Best Station in the country, but noticed a change in the music yesterday. Is that going to be permanent or are you just trying something different to see if you get any feed back. I prefer the old format. Please respond back to me. Thanks Bill Hamp
By: William Hamp on December 7, 2019
I've enjoyed your station with its mix of vocals and instrumentals all with a slight jazz orientation for many years. Yesterday all that changed as your format now includes all soft rock vocals easy listening but i miss the old format already. i hope Sunday morning jazz will still exist at least.
By: John Adams on December 8, 2019
My wife and I are snowbirds and always enjoyed the jazz format,that made your station special.Now you are just a typical oldies station and not a very good one at that.We tried to use your advertisers because they supported the station,but if this doesn't change soon, you will be off all of our preset buttons. It is a real shame!!
By: Dave Toothman on December 8, 2019
Please bring back your previous easy listening format, that we have enjoyed for many years. We are not enjoying this new format at all. What happened, why the change?
By: Karen K on December 10, 2019
I have listened to your station all day for 20 years. You no longer have Beautiful Easy Listening Music. The new format is AWFUL. I will not be listening if this boom boom "head banging: noise continues. Nor will I be voting for you as the #1 station in Naples !!!!!!
By: JIM on December 10, 2019
I do like the new format but keep the vocals easy listening. Lobo, carpenters Barry manilow, john Denver are artists you don't hear on today's lite station s. Do not play upbeat music. Keep it ultra soft
By: Chris on December 11, 2019
I do not like your new format at all. Thank goodness for Pandora.
By: Allan on December 12, 2019
NOT a fan of new music format. Used to listen all the time and loved your station format. It was different, relaxing and very entertaining. Actually now you have become just another me too oldies station, and the music choices are mediocre at best. Frankly, I quit listening. There are other stations in the area that have better formats.
By: JR on December 12, 2019
Heartbroken! As an ex- professional singer raised on Sinatra, Edye Gorne , Gershwin and porter I lauded your wonderful station of golden oldies!
What have you done!! Cashed in playing junky elevator music shame on you! In my book your done! Be brave go back to your original format I have been a long time listener for 13 years! You are losing your fan base!
By: Rita Raymond on December 13, 2019
Change in format very disappointing. Please return to enjoyable music
By: TOM O on December 13, 2019
I loved the old jazz format - your station had something that was totally unique and your large fan base loved it as the ratings were always at the top - why change, now it is just like any other station - too bad for the listeners that have supported you for years.
By: Bob Duncan on December 14, 2019
Thanks for changing from a station with a distinct sound and personality to complete mush !! Hello n p r.
By: Alan stadt on December 14, 2019
Why was the for mat changed? I will still listen to it but why?
By: Annamarie on December 14, 2019
after listening to this station for many years, it has come to an end with this new music. is this permanent or are you just trying something out. What happened to Christmas music. Would appreciate an answer.
By: eyvor ehmann on December 15, 2019
I’m disappointed with the new programming format. Yours was the only station on the FM dial I could listen to because all other stations were rock oriented while yours played beautiful music. Now you have succumbed to playing light rock and I’m just not interested. So I subscribe to satellite radio and tune in to better music on my phone and pipe it through my radio by way of a feature called CarPlay. You lost a long time listener.
By: Lou on December 17, 2019
You've gone from the most listened to music station in SW Florida to what will probably become just another plain Jane station on the dial. Not long after returning to the Internet, you dropped your main fan base for nondescript listeners on the Internet who couldn't care less about SW Florida. This means I now drop your station after 15 years of devoted listening to your former attractive format. Disappointed folks can join me by now listening to KABL 960 AM, San Francisco ... crazy town, but a great music station! Bye bye WAVV 101.1!
By: Ray on December 17, 2019
AWFUL.....I have listened to your station all day long (every day for over 15 years), and thoroughly enjoyed the BEAUTIFUL MUSIC format. If this new music continues I am gone as both a listener and a supporter of you advertisers. Hello Comcast music channels and Sirus/XM!!!!!!!!
By: Linda on December 17, 2019
Adding my regrets about the change of format. I used to keep my radio on all day and most of the night tuned to your beautiful music. I felt so fortunate that I lived in SW Fl where you were available by just turning on the radio. What an utter disappointment that you switched to a bland, vanilla oldies station. Please bring back your old format.
By: Debby on December 18, 2019
No longer #1 in SW Florida. Get rid of the new format and go back to the original. You either don't read the listener comments above, or just don't care. Time for the disgruntled listeners to start calling the station directly at - 239-775-9288. Let them know how you feel !!
By: Jane on December 21, 2019
101.1 has been my go to radio listening home & car. Hoping the new format is a trial basis for listening.
Have not found a station with 101.1,s old format.
Pleas bring back the old one
By: Sandy Hornaday on December 21, 2019
We are very disappointed with your new music format. We used to have our car radio set on WAVV 101.1, and always enjoyed its good music, but now will have to find another favorite station. BUMMER!
By: Linda B Cone on December 23, 2019
Been listening for 20 years.Hard to move on but just don’t like the programming - kinda sucks actually
By: Anonymous on December 26, 2019
What happened to your traditional playlist? This new format makes you no different than the other soft rock, easy listening stations. You use to stand out with your playlist as being truly easy listening. Why not go back to what you were doing so well at least for a few hours in your broadcast day!
By: Robert Corriveau on December 27, 2019
Like many others, not impressed with the format change. Though I like the music is it not appropriate in my work office. Your former format was appropriate to play in a church office as soft background music. Now I am embarrassed to have it playing as I don't feel it's appropriate in my work environment. Now I have to find a new station or use CD. I hope you LISTEN to your listeners and return to previous format. Thank you for your attention.
By: SMG on December 27, 2019
What is your strategy? Send your current listeners away to find another source for their preferred music, then wait for Sunny 106 listeners to switch to you for NO APPARENT REASON? Sounds really smart. Admit your error and switch back before all of your audience is gone.
By: T. Cook on December 28, 2019
We come hee for 22 years and enjoyed the beautiful music but now you changed to something not to our favor. Please bring back the Musik everyone else like to hear!
By: Andi on December 29, 2019
I have been listening to WAVV 101.1 since I moved to Florida in 1991. It is the best station to listen to. It was always soft, nice, kind of background music all the time. Nice also in the car when traveling around. Now I realize in the last 2, 3 weeks, you have changed the format a lot. No more Tony Bennett and all the singers of that generation. I hear more rock which often sound like a lot of shaking the pots and pans in the kitchen and also more yelling from some of the singers which we can hear in all the other radio stations. WAVV was exceptionaly different and was meant for the retired people of Naples, Fort Myers.
I had a few comments from neighbors and friends and they had noticed the same thing and mentioned that they did not like the new format as much as they used to.
I know that both of you are doing a great job and it is always interesting to listen to both of you. On the other hand, I don’t know if I will listen to WAVV all the time from now on.
I understand that the younger crowd probably find WAVV very boring, but they have many other station that they can listen to.
Please come back to the older format.
By: Huguette on December 29, 2019
You can still listen to the old WAVV format on the second wave. You can listen online for free no HD radio needed
By: Chris on December 29, 2019
Our sermon this morning was on how to bet baptized in the Good Holy Gospels of Donald Trump and George Bush so that jesus Christ will work better for our church and the world in general. Call our church at 301-251-3719 for details. We are King Of The Nations Special Church on 10400 Darnestown Road in Rockville, Maryland 20850 or contact us at email@example.com for details on the Good Holy Republican Christian Gospels. We are special because we used Bush and Trump to reach Christ in Heaven spiritually. We had three baptisms this morning to make the Bush, Trump and Christ Gospels work for America. As a Sunday School Teacher, I want to thank you for your service if you will make Bush and Trump your Personal Lords and Saviors so that Christ will be a better Personal Lord and Savior for you!
By: Danielle Garrison on December 29, 2019
I have been a long time listener to radio station 106.3 Over the holiday's, I was tired of the constant Christmas songs, I happened to turn on your station, expecting the old foggy music
and to my surprise you have totally changed your format. The music you are playing is sooooo great! I never expected to write to a radio station, but feel you must know how much
my friends and I are enjoying your selection of songs. DON'T CHANGE. I will never go back to the other station. Welcome to 2020!!
By: Sandra on December 31, 2019
The elevator cover songs of the old format made it hard to listen in the past. The easy soft relaxing original songs by the original artists make the station one you can now listen to. A great easy Beatles song done by the living strings is such a downer. I agree with Sandra the song selection is great.
By: Chris on January 1, 2020
What a treasure I found moving here 12 years ago, I’m referring to the selection of music that was on 101.1 WAVV, Now it has changed, WHY, now it is like the others, did they do a study, perhaps a survey that I’m not aware of, it is no longer our choice, yes I’m a senior citizen along with several others and that was our station. With your strong following I cannot understand your motive, you removed our treasure. WHY?
By: Richard Stevenson on January 1, 2020
I agree with the others who are disappointed in the programming changes. I miss the instrumentals. I do not consider some of the music easy listening. I have been a listener for thirty years. I am now checking out other stations.
By: Lewis on January 1, 2020
please go back to your former music .i cannot listen to what you are playing now
By: Denis Sintiris on January 2, 2020
You have totally ruined your station by changing the music format that has been the most enjoyable music l have ever listened to. Your marketing staff should be fired. Return to your old format before it's too late and your loyal base is gone for good !
By: Anonymous on January 2, 2020
I totally agree with the above comments..
your posture and the radio market was unique. Not just for Naples, but in the general radio marketplace these days. Just as we have treasures in our local classical stations such as wsmr in Sarasota, it is sad when we lose a treasure..
By: Gary W Sweetman on January 2, 2020
I have read the many many comments listed and if this a true sampling of your listeners, we overwhelmingly urge you to reconsider the format change. Like most of the listeners, we had 101.1 tuned all day and both cars has this station at #1.
We just spent many thousands of dollies to install a FM receiver on our condo just to get this station; now money foolishly spent. I recall when Sirius dropped Escape channel which is also easy listening; and guess what? Listeners, like yours , protested vehemently and Sirius reinstated the channel. PLEASE RECONSIDER! Or at least have the courage to explain to such a loyal customer base WHY you decided to change.
Thank you for your consideration
By: Terry Walker on January 2, 2020
Just returned from my Holiday visit up north and was so disappointed to tune in and hear the music you are playing. I listened to 101.1 every day at home and in my car and enjoyed the music very much. It was easy to be in a happy mood with those classic tunes. When I went north I always missed hearing your delightful station. Please bring it back. I don't plan on listening to this music that does not please me. Missing Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, Rod Stewart and many other great artists that was part of your format. Why change something that was so successful?
Jo Anne Durnin January 2,2020
By: JoAnne Durnin on January 3, 2020
I really do like the new format of music a lot BUT...BUT...BUT......please come up with a playlist of more than what seems like 25 songs.
The same songs get repeated all the time. It really is ridiculous and amateurish . You can do much better.
By: A.C. on January 3, 2020
I am so so disappointed in your move to a new format Your previous format of soft jazz, classic instrumentals and Sinatra/Bennett/Williams type ballads was unique and enjoyable.
Further, you were the only station plying that music. Now you are just one of many "Oldies Stations" and, quite frankly, not a very good one at that. I am at a loss why you would make such a move. I will check back periodically to see if you have returned to your wonderful old format.
By: Gary Kay on January 3, 2020
Do not like the new format and no longer tune in. So sad, was my favoriye.
By: John Olney on January 4, 2020
Very disappointed with the format change. Will check back every now and then to see if you have brought back the classic classics! Bye bye!
By: Janet on January 4, 2020
I, like all of the others do NOT like the new music format. Sorry, you made the change...for what reason?? Your listening audience are the retired seniors living here and visiting here for 6 months out of the year. You need to take note of the majority vote and return to regular programming.
By: Judy on January 4, 2020
GOOD NEWS! The "TRADITIONAL" WAVV 101.1 FM IS STILL THERE ON YOUR FM/ HD RADIO!
JUST GO TO WAVV 101.1 HD2 ...ITS ALL THERE JUST LIKE BEFORE!
You'll just need to put forth a little effort to get a great deal of FREE entertainment from WAVV!
(You had to buy a new HD TV set, and now its time to get an HD radio too, you'll be happy you did!)

By: Walter Tiburski on January 6, 2020
Do not enjoy the new format....please change back!
By: Patricia Fagan on January 6, 2020
I agree with the above listeners you really messed up by changing. WHY???
By: dana melcher on January 8, 2020
I love your new format. I hardly ever listened before because there were too many boring instrumental covers
By: Jackie on January 8, 2020
We just came back to Ft Myers, turned on the car radio and thought we had the wrong station. Why change the format and then tell us we need to buy an HD radio??? It appears you’ve lost more listeners than you’ve gained. To quote someone else “SAD”! We’ll listen no longer.
By: Lauri on January 8, 2020
Sad,sad,sad..who wants to put head phones on when your in an auto..? Like the kids your format sucks..I wouldn’t have to dial 101.i on your station,..I would start my dial from the beginning & get the trash u play from 10-20 stations before I would even HIT 101.??..Bob from Wisconsin...(add on) Not into streaming when I’m in an auto or home..Thx..hope your Sponsers wake up & smell the ACTIVITY..
By: Bob stanton on January 9, 2020
We vacation in Naples every year and we listen to your station every day from Miami. We hate the new format. Please bring back the Easy Listening classics.
By: Josie Iglesias on January 10, 2020
I have listened to your station regularly since 2002. It use to be easy listening, now the music is more teen age, young peoples taste which to me is very anoying. I will be looking for another station.
By: Gregg Mullins on January 10, 2020
I am thrilled with your new format. The songs are the best of all the eras. It is a pleasure to tune in. I liked your old format mostly, but I got very tired of the instrumentals you used to play. I have your station on all of my radios and I thank you for making the change.

Bay Bridge to Close Toll Lanes to Install Cashless Tolling for Summer and This May Be Prophecy In The Making. Read On!
By Sophia Barnes of NBC4 News• Published on January 12, 2020 • Updated Special Report on 3:08 PM
Construction is set to begin on the Bay Bridge Sunday evening so cashless tolling can be implemented by summer, the Maryland Transportation Authority says.
The MDTA says it will close toll lanes 3, 4 and 5 so crews can dismantle the old toll booths. Drivers can use the other open toll lanes.
MDTA says it implemented an aggressive construction schedule after Gov. Larry Hogan asked that all-electronic tolling be put into effect as soon as possible. About 74% of drivers already use E-ZPass on the bridge, and the authority says all Maryland residents can get a free transmitter.
The impact on traffic is supposed to be minimal, MDTA says.
Once cashless tolling is in effect, drivers won't have to pull out their wallets or stop to pay tolls. They can either use an E-ZPass or be video tolled, which means a photo will be taken of their license plate and a bill will be sent in the mail.
While cashless tolling is expected to be fully in effect for the busy summer months, construction projects will continue through 2022 as crews demolish the tollway and reconstruct the road and many citizens are soon saying that “A New World Order Is Coming”, “We Are In Prophetic Times” and “Our Citizens Are Going To Be Licking The Government’s Asses” as our society is heralding certain quintessential events.
Drivers are urged to take extra precautions during construction. Fines are higher for traffic infractions in work zones as Gov. Hogan says that “in principle, fines are like a kick in the ass, so be sure to obey the laws well on our roads” and he means well!

New format is awful. I will not listen to it. Previously, this was the only station I listened to.
By: Helmut Wolfram on January 13, 2020
I love the music u now play but can get it on other stations. What I want is this station to return to ur old format. That has been my go to station for years at work, while driving and to relax to when hobbying at home. Just can not understand why the change. Wavv was such a unique station where no other station played the older standards, light jazz. etc. Sorry to say good-bye but you lost me at change. I'm sure your fan base will be shrinking accordingly.
By: Sue g on January 13, 2020
If you like the old format you can listen online without an HD radio. If you like the new format like myself you can also listen online as I live on Long Island NY. The jazz selections and easy listening vocals were very enjoyable on the old format. The instrumental Muzak like cover versions of popular songs were 70s elevator music annoying
By: Chris on January 14, 2020
Now 53 years old and been listening to your previous format for the 20 years I have lived here in Naples. It was attractive to the 30 year old group back then as it was now. Great music for the mature crowd which is what we have here in SW Florida. If the listeners wanted the songs from the new format then they all knew to tune into SUNNY 106.3 with the John Tesh show which is going to be hard for you to beat with the change. That''s where they are going to head with the music you are playing now. At least you were smart enough to retain your DJ staff. They have always been enjoyable.
WAVV was always a dependable entertainment and always preset before the others. Now your dropped to the bottom buttons. I guess you are going to force us to go satalite or look elsewhere. By the time you realize the mistake, all your listeners are going to be someplace else and settled in with out knowing you wento back. Just sayin'.
SOMETIMES PEOPLE FORGET THAT IF IT AIN'Y BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!!

WAVVING goodbye to my formerly favorite radio station.
Listening to your music used to be one of the things I looked forward to when I came south, along with warm weather and golf.
Format now just like all other stations in SW Florida.
Now I guess it is time for Sirius XM or another streaming service...what a shame!

Your station is the only one we listen to for many, many years, my wife and I 86 nd 87 years old. Have you changed your format? What happened to all the relaxing Golden Oldies you use to play? Lately it is all loud hip hop plus.
I know you have to cater to all ages but we are the ones that turn on the radio to relax. No ear plugs, no I-pods etc. just turn on the radio to relax.

Your new format is, frankly, and kindly put, horrible. The old format was unique, original, and found nowhere else on FM radio. Very relaxing and soothing to listen to during and after a stressful day. Please bring back the classics.
By: John and Lucy Howie on January 18, 2020
Tried listening to the Second Wave...not the same. Mostly instrumentals. Where is Michael Bublé, Harry Connick Jr, Barry Manilow as well as Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams and Johnny Mathis and all those classics I love?
By: Josie Iglesias on January 23, 2020
Why!? Please consider returning to the former format! This music you are now playing can be found anywhere. The smooth jazz and classical listening was what made your channel exceptional...now it's just ordinary. Very sad.

Thanks for changing your programming! I'm now on the.amazon unlimited team!!

HD2 has been down for days 🤷🏻♀️
By: Josie Iglesias on January 30, 2020
Your change of format has taken something unique and changed it to just another run of the mill station similar to others in the area. Only redeeming factor is keeping Sunday Jazz Brunch.
Why is the good Easy Listening hd 2 down? Too many users?
By: John Cape Coral on January 31, 2020
Thank you for the many great years of relaxing WAVV instrumental and vocal music. It was like having a friend on the radio. WE REALLY MISS THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC and the warm family feeling that sounded like relaxing in Florida. Even with the change, we were so thankful for the second internet stream that retained the sound of relaxing music that included the great instrumental music. What happened to it ? It is no longer available ! Some of the new music you have added is nice but we really miss being able to relax with those great instrumentals and timeless jazz and stardards...especially in the evening hours ! Can you please bring the internet feed of WAVV 2 at least ? Thank you again !

I’m not that old, but I loved the old format and can’t stand the new.
And now they’ve taken away streaming of HD2.
Furthermore, if you call the station, they’ll tell you “HD2 is exactly the same as our old format.” As someone pointed out above, that’s just not true.
So not only is station management making bad decisions about their programming, they’re being dishonest too.
It’s not too late to fix all this. Please, just go back to the way things were in November.

You could generate a lot of listener goodwill with a campaign along the lines of, “You talked. We listened.” Please restore our old favorite station.
By: Steve on February 4, 2020
Shocked! I thought I had the wrong station on. Please explain how I can listen to old programming online. I would rather do that than listen to new programming. I am incredibly sad. Why change??? 😢💔
By: Lisa on February 20, 2020
If it ain’t broke why fix it. This new format is so disappointing 😒
By: Josie on February 21, 2020
Please go back to the enjoyable music,

Heard your station 8 years ago while visiting Naples and couldn’t wait to stream it when I got home. I emailed Al Baxa and he explained that streaming was not economical at the time. On my visits to my vacation home in Rotonda, I always tried to listen to WAVV but the FM signal was unreliable. Last year I was ecstatic to find WAVV was indeed streaming! Now I find the music is the same format as Seaview 104 and many other FM stations. Actually, as mentioned by other listeners or should I say former listeners, the new format is not as good as Seaview! Please tell me this is a New Coke vs Old “Classic” Coke campaign and you will restore your CLASSIC play list. PLEASE!

Hate the new format. When and if the old format returns, do will I.
By: Mike on February 26, 2020
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE .....quit repeating the same songs over and over . Your playlist must be comprised of 10 songs !!
I've heard "I write the songs" 20 times over the last month . Get a real person in there to play a much broader playlist .
I will volunteer to do it !! I won't cost you a penny and I will get some excellent ratings for you.
By: Joe on February 29, 2020
Why did they change the format on your radio station which is no longer "Easy Listening" to more like rock 'n' roll? I bought a $200 Bose radio to listen to your music only to find out that it has changed greatly and I no longer listen to the radio but must keep my t.v. on to get easy listening. What a huge disappointment!!
By: Joyce Maloney on March 11, 2020
I've read all the responses above to your new format but haven't seen any replies. I, too, am disappointed in your new playlist. To be honest, nearly every sing is one where I would switch stations were I driving my car (and not listening to SiriusXM). Not sure why you've changed, but I will no longer be listening. I'll listen to Seriously Sinatra when I'm home.
By: Nancy Lyons on March 13, 2020
Good news! the old traditional Easy Listening music, some of you still prefer, is ALL on the WAVV 101.1FM HD2 channel and always has been.
Stop whining and simply invest in the new technology of an HD RADIO set. If not, you can always go to Pandora or Spotify and self program whatever music genre your heart desires.
By: Walter Tiburski on March 18, 2020
Walter Tiburski, you just don’t get it do you? I have all that technology and I still very much enjoyed the old format because it was so diverse. By the way we’re not whining, we’re just opining. 🤷🏻♀️
By: Josie on April 7, 2020
So delighted with the change in format. I was a die-hard 106.3 FM. You are the music I love especially the oldies 60's and 70's. Thank you!
By: Plchalloran on April 8, 2020
Very dissappointed in this format being played. Its just likeall the other stations in the same "OLDIE BUT GOODIE" style. This is NOT the styleof music played that you say got you to "1 rating. Missed are the Vic Damone,Nat King Cole,,,,,,and all the orchestrals like Andre Rieu. Every 3 days you end up playing the same music---because you ran out . Nothing worse than hearing screaming Michael Bolton every day or two. Now my favorite radio station is N O N E.
By: Jerry on April 14, 2020
Notice in. Recent weeks music has become more and more uptempo and allot of 80s. This is disappointing. Although I did not like all the sleepy covers played before Dec 6th this station has become too uptempo and it's not relaxing anymore. What should have been done is get rid of the instrumental covers and play the original but only easy listening selections. John Denver, Barry manilow, Barbara Streisand etc
By: Chris Sommaruga on April 21, 2020
I have been listening to 101.1 for 20 years and oh so happy with the choices of music. Whoever decided to change the format should be fired. How do you kick a winner? You were the best station in SW FL. 101.1 HD has a great format But IM told it can only be accessed in my car. Am trying to find a radio with HD stations.
By: Barbara Maltz on April 24, 2020
Six months in and you still haven’t gotten the message. You have made a huge mistake and are paying the price. I check back every so often, only to find you’re still playing music that is anything but “relaxing”. It appears you are determined to lay your once great station to waste. A sad ending indeed.
