Polkas ... The Next Big Thing?
April 28, 2008 at 1:28 PM (PT)
After plugging a major announcement was coming for a full week, AMERICAN MEDIA INVESTMENTS Hot AC KBZI (B100.7)/PITTSBURG, KS - JOPLIN, MO flipped to an All-Polka format this morning (4/28) as "OOMPA 100.7." After letting their listeners' heart rate slow down from the OOMPA beat, KBZI re-branded itself as "The Station Playing Real Music Variety."
According to PD/MD/morning guy BRANDON "BEEJ" MCNULTY, "We had e-mails and calls asking if it was a joke ... which, thankfully, it was. I don't think I could manage to sound peppy doing an All-Polka morning show."
