Re: MAX FM

Yesterday was confusing  .I tuned in at 7am to hear local news and there was no newscast. The entire day was just teasers for a big surprise coming and station id's with an occasional weather forecast and auto pilot music, changing to Halloween themed tracks during the afternoon drive time.  . Today is the same with the odd spot and the new MaxFM sounders for the Best of the 70's , 80, and 90's, along with  the change in music. I did hear one saying they will be back to regular on Monday as Max FM. The Beach 97.7 signs have been removed from the station building .  So, my theory is they are taking a chance to be different from 95.1 The Peak as they both previously aired  pretty much the same playlist. Good luck to them. My only beef is reception in some areas of Collingwood is scratchy and as you head towards Thornbury it begins to cut in/out. They are supposed to be Wasaga Beach specific so I don't expect any change.

Re: MAX FM

Wow!  After originally having their studio in Wasaga, moving it then to the East side of Collingwood, now they are cutting all referenced ties to 'the Beach". 

This, after all the promotion of them being the new FM station for Wasaga...

Many ads are still for businesses in Wasaga beach. Wasaga Beach IGA being one of them.

Re: MAX FM

Looks like they might have flipped the orillia station to MAX as well.
