Should have asked why they fired the guy that had the only decent show on the channel in the last 20 years.

They've let go of 95% of the people I knew working at BLM/CYY over 10 years.
They just got smaller and smaller to a point where it's people who took a huge pay cut, cut of hours, or just syndicated programming.

Radio sucks.

They’ve been playing the same five song rotation that long? Damn.

The morning show is boring dribble

I’m so old I remember it being 107.5

With Mark Persky (dunno if I spelled the name right)

I remember the Mark and Mark Remarkable Morning Show, before the Captain. Mark Persky and Mark Mancell. I remember Jose Diaz.

I remember when they fired Mark Persky, and I started listening to WTOS because it pissed me off so much.

I thought he had retired on his own. There's not much online about him since he left. Looks like he was on a station called WYAR but that site hasn't been updated.
Reddit said he had legal troubles but I think the poster confused Mark Parenteau from WBCN with Mark Persky...

Had Persky as a sub teacher back in high school.

The dude does not know how to shut up.

The last time I listened to the morning show they had Mark Persky in the booth with them

Persky was an a-hole, glad to see him gone.

Why do you say that? Do you know anything about the firing or any Persky gossip?


eljefino t1_jc6s84p wrote

Yes, but not posting here.

Of note, he was on 107.5 Frank for about a week, if that helps.


frankenpoopies t1_jc4vok6 wrote

And they don’t mention the frequency in the whole article.

I miss Tommy C, I miss the Guru, I miss Persky, I miss the Cosmic Muffin. BLM is a shadow of its former glory but it is still here and has some legitimacy left. The slashing of personalities had made me often listen elsewhere, but i still pop in. I have been lucky to have been born and raised with a monster AOL station and then, in moving to Maine, blessed with another. These are rare. They still are allowed by their overlords to play Beatles and the enitre catalog "A to Z"'s and might play an occasional deep cut off of vinyl. Tommy C at least has his show on CLZ and that is the best thing on the radio. I'll enjoy what we have while we have it.

If you are not listening to Tommy C on WCLZ, you are missing some good stuff. A lot of things you haven’t heard in years and things you’ve never heard.

Did you know what BLM stands for?

Took me a while to learn that TOS stands for Top of Sugarloaf because that's where their tower is.


eljefino t1_jc6pedd wrote

TOS has BLM's old afternoon guy, the "if the conniption fits..." dude. Guru out!

Love this! I grew up on the same street as Celeste and her family when I was a kid. Listened to BLM so much back then

WBCN in Boston changed formats and WAAF turned into some bible thumping station.

Fuller/Jeffries, just two local dudes, sold WBLM and others in its group for $63 million in 1999. Perfect timing.

I get my dose of 'BLM every morning at 7:20 on Maine Public Radio. Still great to hear Altitude Lou. I was more of a 'TOS/'FNX type, myself, but the Blimp was the soundtrack to pretty much every hour long bus ride from Farmington to Weld, and vice-versa, from 1982-1986.
