Listener Comments and Reviews
Thanks for the grand-and-Good Mix on your radio station. I've been listening in the car on weekends and just discovered yesterday you are now live/ weekdays, too (not sure when that happened) and I am glad you are past the 'tell us what you want' phase - and are "mixing it up"! Also appreciate the 'hometown' local historical vignettes, as well. I live north of Iola near my hometown of Big Falls, WI (which I left with my mom for Milwaukee when I was in third grade; and returned 'home' after age 30-something - and 'that' was 35 years ago). I was raised with the various radio stations of Milwaukee and WLS Chicago oldies - and I am finding you have the 'spot on!' mix I was missing in the Waupaca county area.
Thanks for being my new favorite (besides The Avenue FM radio out of Appleton).

For me, while I was hoping for more 80's-90's type format, I don't mind a little 50's-60's, just think right now they play a bit more than I like.Also, I am OK with Chuck & Patty, and know they are on 2 other stations, but, I would like a more definitive and more live morning show with time and temperature, etc. Seems a bit "voice-tracked" to me. I know too, they are still "building the station", but am waiting for local news and hopefully local sports in the fall.

Just wondering where you got your information on the naming of Caroline WI. I'm interested on learning more about it!
By: Nancy Cargin on September 19, 2017
Just discovered your station. I like the way it's like playing music roulette. Never know what great song will be next.
By: Steve welsh on September 23, 2017
I love your station. I wonder if your signal gets stronger after 9:00 a.m. or so. I am unable to hear a "morning show" as the signal is too weak. Love the history of Waupaca county. I was unable to listen most of the summer, so wonder if you have done any research on Big Falls School and also Dupont High School. I have seen reference to the Dupont High School on several occasions in the Marion Advertizer and would like to know where it was, and during what time-frame. (thanx to Dan Brandenberg for bringing attention to WPAK)
My grandfather "homesteaded" in the Town of Wyoming, so I find the history very interesting.
Also, do you have any history on Granite City?
Keep up the good work and interesting commentary.
Best Regards, KHW

Generally like the station, especially that you play novelty and rock (and sometimes country) oldies that many other stations (even so-called oldies ones) tend to usually ignore and keep out of rotation unless a special reason comes up for playing them (unfortunately, these days that's usually the death of the original artist or because some have to do a "lost oldie"). That being said, for two Friday in a row you did an oldies show and had the exact same format, down to same song rotation and the same things being said by the DJ (so this was obviously pre-recorded earlier [because it wouldn't make much sense to pre-record it later] and re-ran twice). I do understand that as a fairly new radio stations you might not have all the much content yet (when a lot of music video channels and segments started out in the 1980s [and played videos] they also had similar items with a limited amount of video to put into rotation) but if you must repeat yourself at least try to hide it better.

Just found you. Couldn't believe the songs I was hearing. From hard rock to the 1940s. Love it. Also love the local history even though I'm not from there. I'm listening to a strong radio signal in Mattoon, WI.
Thanks and keep it up! =0)

Thanks for all the great comments! We're so glad you all like and appreciate this new station for Waupaca and beyond. Please feel free to call our listener line and leave comments on how we can be an even better station for you at 715-600-WPAK(9725).
By: Bob Hanson on December 8, 2017
I just listened to several disco era songs. That music is exactly the reason why I began to listen to your station! Because you never play disco! Please do not interrupt my music pleasure by mixing in disco. It totally ruined the reputation of late 70s and continues to pollute the airwaves if you play it. I would rather listen to Farron Young than to hear anything that even sounds close to disco. Otherwise you are doing great.
By: Scott Schroeder on December 30, 2017
This is not an official website or chat for WPAK. No one from the station will ever see this. For comments that will be listened to, and responded to be sure to call the listener line. This website is unsanctioned and again no one will see this from the station. Just wanted you to know. Contact the station directly. Thanks
By: WPAK Radio on January 28, 2018
Yours is the only station I have on my radio most of the time. I love variety in music and you certainly have that. My only complaint is that recently I've been hearing songs by artists like Cher and other disco era songs. I stopped listening to all the other area stations because of this type of music. Cher's canned music really sucks and disco is dead. Let it stay dead. I am almost 60 and I have heard the best and the worst in "Rock and Roll". I've also heard the best old country. There is so much good/great music out there to hear. Please keep up the good work but lose the crap. Thank You!
By: Scott Schroeder on January 29, 2018
The "station" is run out of a guy's basement in a shack in the woods way over by Mt Morris (N 4801 County Road E Pine River WI) with his antenna mounted on a tree. The relay station is in Ogdensburg and has nothing to do with Waupaca other than the signal. He's like the man behind the curtain pretending to be the Great and Powerful Oz. There is no "studio". Nothing is "live". You'll never get an answer when you call. Everything is pre-programmed. There are no live DJ's and no staff. It's a big sham. The music may be good but, his stratagem is to make people in Waupaca County think they have a new radio station that's part of the community but he may as well be in California. The owner doesn't like people talking about the station(as you can see from his comment) possibly because the music royalty company might find him and make him pay the royalties he owes? He goes by the name Charlie Brown but his real name is Charles Stroud, he's in his 60's, look him up.

Deep Throat, how do you come by what you post?
By: Rob Lehman Jr on March 24, 2018
Sorry Deep Throat - All the former information is completely untrue.. (from someone who doesn't understand the radio biz)... although it sounds kinda romantic, and exciting like a storybook story. Next LIVE event at Mt. Morris, when we do Heal The Hill in May. Maybe that's where you get the Mt. Morris idea. Our Waupaca staff will gladly meet you sometime when you come outta the weeds, and act like a gentleman.
By: Anonymous on March 24, 2018
Thank you, WPAK radio. We met with you and your team during a recent event. Patty is charming, and we had such fun. Thank you for coming to Waupaca County. We've needed this ray of sunshine. Many blessings!
By: Marion Mary on March 24, 2018
We are not from Waushara, but we came down to visit with your station on top of mount Morris. It was a great day, and everyone there so nice. We saw where it was printed that the county board of Waushara is responsible for that logging up there, even when the people have told them they don't want it. It's a total mess up there. Then some lady from the county board was pitching a fit in the parking lot during your friendly event. How do we get these people out of office? So we just wanted to thank you for the warmth and kindness you radiate with your radio station. Your staff is wonderful. Please let us know the next event you'all be at, and we will be there, too.
By: Waupaca Radio Fan on May 22, 2018
We just spent the day at your Redgranite rock festival over at the Sentry store. Don't remember any radio station doing something like this. Great day, good food, and we had a lot of fun. Love the music on 106.9 Keep up the good job.
By: Redgranite Rocks Fanatic on June 11, 2018
Who puts on these events? Because I just heard about your rock concert on the radio and went there. Maybe we could do more of those things. Because that was one of the best days me and my friends ever had. How can we get more?
By: Curious guy on June 11, 2018
A friend was passing through your broadcast area and in search mode, found your station. Commented: unique, entertaining, and at times comical. Didn't seem to be any bars on the music you played. Have heard a remake of our song, Sounds of Silence, by Disturbed. Would love to hear you play them back to back
By: Paul S. on July 23, 2018
Liked your station until about a week ago when you played "God Made a Farmer" every 15 minutes! Rather than pull my fingernails out I switched back to my old station. Where is the "variety" in your claim to be a station with lots of variety?
By: Keith on July 29, 2018
Thank you so much for the "God Made A Farmer" that you ran once an hour for the few days leading up to the Symco event. We went to the Thresheree all three days, and your station was so loyal to the event. You do so much for our community events in our county. You always go 100 percent and then a bit more. Again, thank you!
By: Farmers Are Our Friends on August 1, 2018
Where can i get a copy of that god made a farmer. i felt like crying everytime i heard it. You guys are the best for caring about the whole county.
By: Dave on August 1, 2018
WPAK, you are our Waupaca heritage station.
By: Ben on August 3, 2018
Met you guys out at Smyco with all the cars. Thanks. Great job.
By: Dan The Driver on August 12, 2018
Hey everyone. This is not a WPAK website. We don't check this but about every 6 months or longer - if we remember. If you want to get response to your questions, needs, concerns, be sure to call the phone line you get on the air each hour. The listener line. Then we can actually help you. This site gives no way to reply, and that's so important to us at the station. No idea why anyone would put a site up for our station. It's weird, especially since there's no way to reply to you, and do what you ask or need. Be sure to listen, and reply to the phone # given on the air each hour. Thank you one and all. You're precious to us.
By: WPAK on August 12, 2018
Wonderful music . Great variety

Will you be considering adding a Jazz hour in the future. Maybe once a week?
By: Lanny Howard on February 8, 2019
We spoke a while ago about starting a new rotary group at WHS. The Interact is holding a T-shirt drive to recycle shirts into grocery bags for the community gardens that are new in Waupaca. Is there anyway we could ask for your help in getting the word out and a little attention? The 4, 5, and 6th grade Waupaca Secret Service kids at all three schools are also involved in raising awareness with this T-shirt drive!
By: Camin on April 16, 2019
My granddaughter heard her sistrr'so name called Sunday for the t shirt. Please respond to Addy above for her address. Her name is Kamarah Thompson. Thanks
By: Susan on May 8, 2019
LOVE LOVE LOVE! This station sounds SO good! It makes all my cells happy. I'm glad I don't have to lay on the floor with my head between the speakers to get this kind of sound anymore...that's what I did before headphones, lol! Love the diversity of music, too...
By: Claire L. Nordness on May 13, 2019
I've been listening to this station almost exclusively for the past year and a half or so, and I REALLY like it.... A LOT!! The "cover" songs of popular R&R tunes are great and I've been searching for many of the same to add to my digital library on my laptop. I also like the "alternative" versions done by the original artists and have added many to my library as well. Keep up the good work and I'll be sure to "stay tuned". Good luck to all of your staff! OH...Let me add that although I DO know most of the tunes and artists being played, I would't mind a "reminder" of who/what's being played on occasion. (I'm getting old(er) and sometimes forget. Lastly,,,,at least during "live broadcasts" a mention of the "time" would be helpful.
By: DE on June 24, 2019
Love the variety of music you play.
By: Mike on June 25, 2019
A friend introduced me to your radio station early this year. Every time I am in my car I enjoy listening - it is an reprieve from everything going on in my life and the world. Yesterday I heard for the first time politically related comments. I am an active citizen in my preferred political party. I am constantly exposed to happenings and politics. So please - I'd like your station to continue to be a little space away from politics. Thank you !

I was wondering if you can give a plug for New Dublin 2020? All our information is at www.newdublin.com

By: Ryan Lanning on February 25, 2020
I found Chuck's comments on the coronavirus this morning very disturbing. He is not qualified to make these statements, and should keep his opinions to himself. The safety of the American people should be our main concern. In closing, I will no longer listen to this station or support it's advertisers.
Respectfully, Ken Jacobchick
By: Kenneth Jacobchick on March 24, 2020
I discovered your station last fall and enjoy your musical selection. Lately I've been hearing comments on the coronavirus. I don't believe we should be bashing the media or anyone else. We are all in this together and need to build each other up as much as possible. We also don't know how bad this will be, so we can't be painting too rosy of a picture right now. Giving people comfort is important, I agree, but giving them a false sense of security may have tragic consequences.
I will still enjoy your station but please consider a change in your public service announcements.
By: Alan Selmer on March 30, 2020
I am looking for the name and artist of a song. It's about being born on different days of the week listing each ....Example...Saturdays child born to be wild...Saturday is the one day where we dance and sing on a Saturday night...etc...Can you email the answer to this puzzle. I googled it and went to lyrics websites but can't find it. Thank you and I love your station and wolf man jack!
By: Mary on May 2, 2020
Chuck, thank you for being a light of truth and common sense with the this virus situation. The national media is so corrupt. We can't trust any of them. And when i hear such clarity from your station, it give me hope again. Thank you very much!
By: Denny on May 10, 2020
God bless you Chuck and Patty! Your take on this whole situation with the lockdown has been so refreshing and honest. We are all in this together like you always say, and it's very important that we don't take all the national news for anything but fear mongering. You two are the light of hope in our little area, and you always make us smile. Thank you.
By: Brianna on May 10, 2020
We can't thank you enough for not spreading the fear in your news and commentary. We get bombarded by this endlessly in the nation, and much of the local sources. You have been caring, confident, hand-holding, and funny at the same time. Will you please never give up this kind of special relationship you have with our towns around here. Thank you. And this comes from not only us, but several of our neighbors and friends, too. We are older, and it does help a lot to know that you are at the helm with our news coverage.
By: BM on May 17, 2020
I want to leave another comment. My wife and I know this is an emotional time. People keep spouting things off as though their way of thinking is the only way. We don't get that feeling from your radio station. The fun and joy that you intermix with your information is good in every way. Thank you again.
By: BM on May 17, 2020
Oh my is this a good radio channel. And I feel so secure listening to every bit of your coverage about virus things. You're so kind to reach out into both Waupaca the city, but also other towns around here with your caring, not fearing message. I would just like to reach inside my radio and give you all a big hug. Please keep up the great work. Oh! Your music is amazing. Every time that I think you have played my all time favorite song, you play another one. So good!
By: Mary on May 20, 2020
In the winter of 2017 and 18 there were 80 thousand deaths from the regular flu, and life went on its merry way. We have these precautions every flu season, with spacing, washing, and being careful. Is anyone besides me concerned that this kind of government intervention could happen every flu season from now on, or at least quite often? i'm an older person, and we have had all sorts of break outs of flu with never anything like this strange reporting that has been on the regular news. I had heard you mention things on your radio about caring for a community, and that you don't want to pass along wrong information. You don't hear that anyplace in the news sources these days. Please keep up this effort. I have been tuned into your good music and careful news and comments most of this shut down time. Thank you for helping us all feel less stressed.
By: M. Bobbe on May 20, 2020
Also, peace and love to all of you there. The man and woman who talk in the morning are so cute and happy.
By: M. Bobbe on May 20, 2020
Please stick with what you've been doing. It's all so perfect. Thank you for all your uplifting news and commentary during the meltdown-lockdown mess. In my little town, we listen, and even talk about ideas of how to make things better after all of this. Listening in on you, and your other callers, listeners, and comment people, we know we have a radio friend in the community. Thank you for the 80s requests on Saturday night, too.
By: Sandra Dave on May 22, 2020
Dump the 80s stuff, and play all the 70s you can find Thanks
By: Bob on May 22, 2020
Why do all the radio channels around here only play the same 12 songs? Thanks for your variety and friendliness. When I switch to your channel I know there is a real Waupaca radio station. You were wonderful helping us see our way through the coronavirus scare, too. When I listened to you in the morning there was real news and not the fake stuff. You are our family radio. Hugs.
By: Teresa H. on May 26, 2020
You guys stopped me from being cooped up in my house all this time. You were out doing things in towns and letting us know about restaurants open and business. OK you cover news like people who know what their saying and not the stupid crap we herd all over the place and national news junk. Music is good thank you.
By: Steve D. on May 27, 2020
Just coooool how you have the most amazing variety. This probably is not a request service, but if you see this. Will you please play even more 70s songs. We just love it.
