BRING BACK 103.7 FREEFM!


whereisfree2.jpg

This is bullshit.  Friday I get off work around 5 and hurry down to my truck, ready for that great drive home on Flash Friday.  I power up my two Pro-Comp off road lights, switch on my brights, crank up the radio, and hit the road, ready for a 15 minute drive full of laughs, the anticipation of a flash, and woman-bashing that only Tom Leykis can provide.  So I settle in, and reach down to crank up the radio to see whats going on during the 5 o’clock hour, when what do I hear?  Is that John Mayer being blasted across the 103.7 airwaves?  Surely I have accidentally tuned in to the wrong station.  I had listened to the Adam Carolla show all morning (see previous argument with adam), and then had some great laughs with Dave and Jeff during the 10-2 hours.  I reach down again to calibrate my stereo to hear the leykis show…but no, I’m definitely on 103.7.  What the Hell is going on?

As John Mayer runs through the halls of his high school I am going through every possible scenario in my head…has some rogue  broadcaster hijacked the FreeFm airwaves?  Is this a joke by Tom Leykis?  What is going on!

I quickly call Evan to see what the deal is.  The lack of Leykis is quickly affecting me, I am worried about missing out on all the flashing going on, scared that I won’t be informed of the latest hot spot where two smokin hotties just flashed every guy on the 5 north.

Evan answers, and confirms what I have been dreading.  Fear slowly creeping up my spine like…something that creeps up your spine.  FREEFM has been shut down.  Now in its place is SOPHIE radio.  WTF is this crap.  I wake up this morning to some easy listening junk.  Doing a little research I found the following information:

Hyper-targeted towards women 25-35, Sophie@103.7’s music includes many of today’s most popular artists, like John Mayer, The Killers, Maroon 5, Amy Winehouse and Snow Patrol, along with favorites from the recent past like U2, Dave Matthews Band and Green Day.

What kind of hippie crap is this!  TARGETED TOWARDS WOMEN!  WTF!   The new radio sophie website looks like it was designed by an entire crew of lesbians.  I can’t stand this.  I have found a temporary stop-gap at 97.1freefm where I can get my Leykis and Carolla, but instead of the hilarious Dave and Jeff local San Diego show I have to listen to this Frosty Heidi and Frank crap!  I’m going to start a petition to bring back our FreeFM.  Hell, even GenY radio was decent at night.  This is bullshit.  We have been wronged!

This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!

  • Weak! I never really listened in to 103.7, I’m a Mikey in the Morning and then KPRI 102.1 the rest of the day kind of guy as far as radio goes 😛 But I still feel your pain, losing a station sucks.

    Oh, that reminds me, today is the “silent day” or what-have-you for online broadcasters. Let’s hope that the CRB pulls their heads out of their respective orifices and repeals the ridiculous rate hikes that they’re planning on levying against online broadcasters.

    So I am stationed here in San Diego and have been listening to 103.7 Free FM since it came on air down here. I go on leave for 10 days and come back looking forward to listening to my favorite talk radio. (Talk Radio in FL Blows!!!) I turn on the radio around 10:15 eexpecting to hear my favorite bitches Dave and Jeff..instead I get some 10 year old Green Day song. WTF!?!?! Are you serious CBS!?!? You take away one of the best stations in SD and repalce it with crap. I can still catch Adam, Danny, and T on that 97.1freefm, but no Dave and Jeff!!!! Where the hell is the petition I wil be the efirst to sign it. THIS IS BULLSHIT!!

    Hey Adam, thanks for the post. I totally agree! I heard those Bitches Dave and Jeff last friday for the last time…apparently they are gone forever. I have to listen to Adam Carolla and the Leykis show online now at http://www.971freefm.com but i can’t pick up any radio from LA in my car. This is bullshit. I will find that petition, or if I can’t will start one because we need FREEFM back in SD. This new Sophie radio is marketed to Women! WTF!

    I am pissed! I do deliveries in the San Diego Co areas every day and I had a good time when I had Adam C, and then Dave and Jeff. My job sucks now, the F-U of the day goes to whoever made the awful decision to get rid of the station.

    Who in the F do they think they are? My morning is always at least a 1 to 2 hour drive, and the Carolla show is the only way to pass the time. Even Leykis was crude but entertaining. I’m with Luis, that’s two consecutive F-Us of the day. I will always remember the day talk radio died.

    I miss listening to Dave & Jeff at Noon, Leykis at in the p.m., and John & Jeff at night. I’m not a music person, but this new format is unlistenable! This station now seems more appropriate as background music for pantywaists at a foppish coffeehouse that specializes in decaf lattes.

    BTW, KOGO-AM 600 will be giving Dave & Jeff a two day “tryout” on July 12 and July 13. See SD Radio.Net for details: http://sdradio.net/2007/06/29/free-at-last-dave-and-jeff-return-to-the-airwaves/
