Contact Information

Perhaps you have some feedback or questions about the site, or maybe even an update about an existing station that needs to be added (or have its entry modified). Whatever the case, the best way to reach me is at this e-mail address:

Note: I don't own, work for, or represent any of the stations listed on this website.

If you're looking for song information, you might have luck on, or if that fails, try contacting the station itself.

Any help that could be given with information on a given station or a market or a station that I don't have listed would be appreciated. I know that many radio professionals visit this site, which is wonderful, since the whole idea of this website is to provide information about the ever-growing Variety Hits format.

One thing I do want to make clear is that I feel bad for everyone who lost their job as a result of format changes that made room for a new Variety Hits station. If there's any consolation, it's that stations change formats all the time and that staff firings are one of the unfortunate realities of this business. Believe me, I know. While it is interesting to track the success of the Variety Hits format, I don't ever want to come across as being smug or indifferent to the careers of those who end up out of a job. I am sympathetic to your plights.

But when a station isn't performing up to what management wants, changes will happen, and the way things are going right now, many changes are being made toward Variety Hits (be it with licensing the JACK-FM format, going with Bob FM or Mike FM or a male first name, or whatever other branding a station chooses to use.) But I don't want to come across as apathetic or, even worse, happy about people losing their jobs as a result. It's a most unfortunate occurence that comes along in radio from time to time.
