    KCCQ - Channel Q

    When did this station become cool? I quit listening to them a long time ago becasue it was terrible. It seemed like everything was crappy Creed/Nickelback sound alikes, and very little older stuff. The last couple weeks I've noticed that they are playing really good music. They're playing newer stuff like MGMT, Kings Of Leon, Postal Service, Portishead, etc. They also play a lot of 90s alternative stuff, which I enjoy. A lot of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, old Live, Pavement, etc. I'm impressed.

    I quit listening to them about 5 years ago because I thought they overplayed them. Maybe I'll have to check it out now.

    Re: KCCQ - Channel Q

    They've been decent ever since I've been in Central Iowa (2003). With 103.3 taking care of all the Creed rip offs, they moved to a little more alternative format. A little too much emo sometimes, but it's better than a lot of other stations. They do have a tendency to overplay good bands (MGMT for example), but still good.

    In regards to Creed/Nickelback rip offs, when of the best music quotes I've heard was "the entire industry is a bunch of guys trying to rip off a guy who got famous for ripping off Eddie Vedder."

    No such thing as overplaying Pearl Jam.

    I enjoy sat radio. Good stuff.


    On a side note, why did they ditch Mancow? I think the guy is a tool bag, but I never heard a reason why they cut him.

    If I'm not listening to 1700 I'm usually listening to 105.1, they do pretty good at not repeating songs too much. I do wish they had a morning show again though.

    I think Tarbox said the new station director or whatever wanted to ditch him. Can't say I'm broken up over it, but not having a morning show at all is kind of meh.

    Yeah, it looks like they play "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon every couple of hours, but it could be worse music.

    Re: KCCQ - Channel Q

    I listened to Valentine in the morning on 107.5 for a little while after Mancow was taken off 105.1. It was listenable, and I prefer to have talking as opposed to music when I get ready in the morning. But they apparently dropped him for some god awful Elvis something-or-other, worst thing I've ever heard, had to turn off my radio.

    Valentine was dropped? That's a little odd.

    I thought so too. It's some Elvis Duran guy now. Him and his 'crew' are the most annoying people I've heard on a radio station.
