KUFO Stunting After More Staff Dismissals
October 26, 2009 at 4:22 AM (PT)
OREGON MEDIA CENTRAL is reporting ALPHA Active Rock KUFO/PORTLAND, OR is stunting -- with an alien voice repeating "Hello, people of PORTLAND. This is the mothership. The beast must be fed." A countdown is set to expire WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28th at 7a, the expected time for a format flip -- or rebranding.
On the station's website, the cryptic message continues:
Announcer: It's going to be quick. It's going to be clean. Most of all, it's going to be loud.
Computer: It is not our intention to harm you. We come in peace.
Announcer: Everyone must prepare for it.
Reporter: The world as we know it is about to change.
Announcer: You are the only ones who can help us.
Computer: Hello, people of Portland. This is the mothership. It is not our intention to harm you. We come in peace.
Announcer: The mothership must refuel.
Computer: Adjust your frequency to 101 for refueling updates.
Announcer: Deployment is mandatory.
Computer: Hello, people of Portland. This is the mothership. The beast must be fed.
The stunting follows FRIDAY's dismissal of morning man RICK EMERSON and afternooners CORT WEBBER and BOBBY "FATBOY" ROBERTS and WEDNESDAY's change of programmers (NET NEWS 10/21), when DITCH was hired to replace CHRIS PATYK.
