Denver's KQMT Not Playing Seattle Rock
January 27, 2014 at 9:00 AM (PT)
With the DENVER BRONCOS and SEATTLE SEAHAWKS ready to meet in this SUNDAY's BIG GAME, ENTERCOM Classic Rocker KQMT(99.5 THE MOUNTAIN)/DENVER is banning ALL SEATTLE bands and musicians from its airwaves until DENVER wins the BIG GAME next SUNDAY.
KQMT Morning Show Host MIKE CASEY is spearheading the movement and said, "This is a crucial prep week for the BRONCOS and I figured that DENVER fans want to get all their positive mojo going in that direction. So how could I, in good conscience and good mojo, saturate THE MOUNTAIN airwaves with SEAHAWK fan-bands like HEART, PEARL JAM, JIMI HENDRIX and NIRVANA this week? No way!"
PD SAM HILL is offering her full support of the ban saying "I know from experience how a song like 'Magic Man' from HEART can earworm it's way in and be stuck in your head all day- we can’t have that influence sneaking in when so much is on the line with this game."
"I’m swearin' off anything with a SEATTLE connection," said KQMT Afternoon Host DAN MITCHELL. "No STARBUCKS, no MICROSOFT, no Frasier re-runs and here at work…No SEATTLE rock!'
