If you are a frequent listener to WQMX between 7 and midnight weekdays...first, thank you very much! As you know, during the 9 o'clock hour we have the New At 9. It's a full hour of some of the newest music out of Nashville. We also have the New Song Spotlight and then play Keep it or Kick it to get your votes on how you as listeners like the song.
Starting Monday, we are making a little change. As we head into Fall and Winter things will begin to slow down a bit. So we will only play Keep it or Kick it when I have a brand new song. The other evenings, the spotlight song will have some other significance. Maybe it's historic to the day, or possibly it's one we've had you vote on before, but don't feel we need a second opinion, etc.
As always thank you for voting during this segment. It really helps us here at WQMX, and look forward to it returning in full strength in the Spring!
Fall officially begins tomorrow morning at 2:50am, then we get the prettist scenery! Right now, you are starting to see leaves change, not to much, but just wait for the next few weeks! I found this website, explorefall.com that updates their maps daily. So if you are sticking around NE Ohio or wanting to take a road trip, you'll know where to find all the fall colors!

Disappointed is an understatement on this one. The car market in general is crazy as ever, and EVs are huge these days. VW is well aware of this, and with successes like that of the new Ford Bronco, it's prime time to bring back an old classic like the bus.
According to Volkswagen, the "ID.Buzz" will arrive at U.S. dealerships sometime in 2024, and it's a very cool ride by all acounts. I'd drive one in a heartbeat. That's not the problem. The essence of the van has been destroyed if you ask me. That's because of the sticker price, 40k on the low end. The original van represented freedom, basic transportation, and affordability; and this is quite the stretch from those origins. As it is with most any brand new car these days (Jeep Grand Wagoneers are in the 100k range!?!) with dealership markup and preoder options, this will inevitably become a status symbol reserved for those with wealth beyond the typical American. It's gotten to the point where I'm not sure I will ever be in a position to buy anything but a used vehicle, and with what's new these days I don't think I mind!

Kane Brown released his next single to radio today, as he also just announced his upcoming tour!
Kane says, "'I Can Feel It' came after we were trying to find someone to perform with me at Stage Coach. Phil Collins was one of the people we wanted, and after we were in Canada, we wrote this song, and I immediately fell in love with it with the drum feel. It's so familiar to a lot of people. I'm really excited to play it live. I immediately saw the image of it after we wrote it and I can't wait for everybody to hear it and get to jam along to it."
The late Olivia Newton-John's birthday was this week. She would have been 75. It is well known that she was the star of Grease and was a huge pop culture star. But long before that, she was an award winning country artist. Let's revisit my article about her, and remember all the great music she recorded.
I love all sorts of pets from parakeets to goldfish and everything in between, but we all know a dog is man's best friend. I've never met a dog I haven't liked, just ones that don't like me, unprovoked. (Just let me love you!) This blog is part of a series in which I rank all sorts of stuff, and the purpose of it is to give you some insight into who I am and what I'm about. It's also a lot of fun to get some input on my lists by those who rank things differently, so let's get into it and determine if we see eye-to-eye on favorite breeds of pups!
10. Miniature Pinscher
9. Great Dane
8. Labrador Retriever
7. Basset Hound
2. German Shepard
