Listener Comments and Reviews

Goodmorning everyone! To anyone that can answer my question, how do you become a radio broadcaster. A few sisters and I would like to point out some things that are important to our everyday society. We have very interesting topics so if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great! Sakeena

They are know 15 and 16 year old young men and playing at championship level. They have won their last 5 tournaments and they are now eligible to play in the national tournament in July. These young men and their family's are diligently working to raise funds to finance a trip to Virginia for the nationals where they will experience a dream come true and at the same time do the city of Rochester proud. If approached please consider donating to help this cause and spread the word about these amazing young men

How would I go about getting you to play my music? I assure you that I am no hack. My recordings are first rate and the songs are good. I have been sitting on them for so long and it is high time I got them out there. Can you give me any information? Thank you. Anthony Mancuso

Feeling VERY discriminated against and UPSET that I had to witness an entire group be penalized for a situation turned worst in large part due to Homeward Suites hotel management. On May 31, 2018, check in around 2:30 PM on) bowling group members were arriving and checking in with NO issues until hotel staff escalated matters. Uncalled for and a huge disappointment. Our group travels every year to this area and looks forward to this time together. Hotel staff ruined it. ### Homeward Suites by Hilton Management (Rochester, New York location) --- blond long hair woman and male manager gave the ABSOLUTE WORST check-in experience and to a guest in our group. They exhibited such a low level of professionalism and overreacted out of "clear personal bias." They demonstrated their inability to lead, manage and most importantly resolve a situation initiated by a simple error ON THEIR PART [1 of 11 rooms reserved in advance that requested two double beds that was "not available" at the time of check in]. Guest asked for a refund to go to their sister hotel adjacent to the property. The managers said the group leader would be charged for the canceled reservation. The skill of de-escalation was obviously NOT in either of their wheel house. What they did feel very comfortable doing? They called the police, kicked the entire group out (including those who checked in without issue and those who had not yet arrived). We traveled from New Jersey for an annual bowling trip (about 20-25) and left to fund alternate accommodations Rather than acknowledge their mistake, apologize, and accommodate the request to refund 1 of 11 rooms, this was the hotel managers response. One "man"ager called videotaping the incident and showing it to police "childish." The other "womanager" said "our entire group" .. people she NEVER met before May 31st and people she who had not yet arrived "is a piece of "###@@@xxx." ### Seen it happen on television. Now seen it firsthand. Jamee B.

Hi my name is Benz, (odiemagee) I am a local recording artist from Rochester, New York. I was just inquiring on what would be the proper channels to go through to be able to get my latest single "S'only Right" (featuring Anna Emlano) played on your radio station. It's a clean song there is no profanity used in the song, I own the copyrights & it is also on all streaming platforms. If possible would I be able to receive a confirmation email or texting relating to the status or process one would have to do to be able make this happen. I appreciate your time, Happy Holidays & A Happy New Year!
