First Impression of Scott Shannon on WCBS-FM

To be fair I never listened to Scott Shannon when he was on Z-100 or WPLJ.  This morning I listened to CBS-FM from 6:10 - 6:40 as usual.  On the train trip I tuned in from 7:55 - 8:05. So far I think there is too much talk and not enough music. WCBS-FM is a music intensive station. I understand this is the first day and that many phoned in to welcome him to the station. Let’s see what transpires over his first week at the station.

I personally like a music intensive show in morning drive with enough weather, sports, traffic and news so I know what is going on in the world when I wake up.  I don't care for a morning zoo approach where there is a lot chatter between several radio personalities.  I am willing to listen and make a judgement.  I do not have a lifetime contract to listen to WCBS-FM in the morning.  With the exception of the two Jack years I have listened to the station in the morning from 1984 to the present.  I would be disappointed if they adopted a show with mostly talk in AM Drive.  If so, I would turn to WFUV as I did during the two Jack years.  When I arrive at work I usually tune into WFUV or WBGO for a while.  Let's hear what happens.

Please go to  to hear Scott's first show on WCBS-FM.  I don't know who posted this.
