In a clear signal of the growing media clout of Houston-area Hispanics, radio behemoth Clear Channel Communications has yanked legendary rock station KLOL-FM (101.1) off the air and replaced it with a format that radio insiders call "Spanglish Top 40."

On the plus side, epic lamer morning show losers, Walton and Johnston (who had the seventh-most-popular morning show in Houston) were part of the crew that got canned with virtually no notice as part of the station's format change.

I live near Toledo Ohio. I used to listen to 106.5 the Buzz to hear my favorite hard rock and metal classics like Ozzy and Rob Zombie, Metallica and more. Not any more! Clear Channel has taken over the whole town and controls about 80% of the major stations. Now my beloved station plays "New Rock and Alternative 90s" which is cool i guess but I miss the days when a small radio station could find a niche and do really well there instead of trying to appeal to a wider group and SUCK!
Clear Channel is The Devil
