    I had a feeling the Christmas music on 106.3 was a stunt and a new format would appear after Christmas. The demographic reach of new rock/alt. music is greater than in DSM than in Ames. Yes, Ames is a college town, but i'm guessing the format is hard to sell when the target audience is gone 4+ plus months out of the year.

    I have a free year of XM in my truck and I like it but probably won't pay for it. If I traveled a lot I probably would.

    On the other hand, they just released an app that works with Pandora, Iheart, and Slacker that's pretty sweet and would be a good replacement for XM.

    My experience with XM is that it's great at first, but after a while you start to notice that stations play a lot of the same stuff over and over again, which is fine but a little disappointing. I found myself only listening to sports radio after a while and eventually cancelled it.

    I had XM for a year and listened to the college sports station almost exclusively. Content is great (except Finebaum is gone now), however, the price is too steep (plus sports talk radio still has a ton of commercials).

    I like my XM radio. Get to hear and discover music that is not all mainstream BS. Commercial radio is pure payolla to me.

    Re: channel Q105.1

    Moved to Boulder in May - working for a Classic Rock/AAA station here.
    My move had nothing to do with anything going on at KCCQ...it was more for my wife who just graduated with her MBA from ISU and wanted to branch out and live somewhere different for a change. When CO came up as a destination, I jumped at the chance.

    I found out about the flip-flop last night at 1am when we started our trek back from Christmastime in Ames. I have no more juice at the station than any of you now. ;)

    Re: channel Q105.1

    I was devastated when "The Dot" left Des Moines. I spent that first weekend thinking it was a joke waiting for them to play some good music and instead I heard "I Want it That Way" 23 times in 2 days.
