Jake needs to retire and hand over the mic to James Ray Jones. Did a excellent job on the airwaves. Pooch needs to put out some more watts though. hard to tune in up here in Leslie county at times.

Are you serious ? The General has forgotten more about broadcasting ballgames than Jones will ever know and I dont see how Jake held his composure with Jones hollering and squalling in the mike and trying to take over but the same thing happened to Sunny D on the other station, he couldnt get a word in for his partners ramblings and he finally gave it up and moved on.

let me see if I got this figured out....2 weeks on the air and James Ray Jones is TOP NOTCH broadcaster...Jake has probably been doing play by play for probably 25-30 years....hhhmmmmm

Now onto "Sunny D" at the "other" station...Are you kidding me....Sunny D wouldn't stop until his "partner" done play by play for a football game...he did the CC/Rockcastle Co game mid October...station callers told Sunny D on the following Tuesday(Swap Shop) that he needed to turn over the play by play to his partner and do color...That coming Friday Sunny D NO SHOWED the station @ Breathitt Co and left his "partner" to do it solo....November 1st Sunny D decided to go play 2nd seat to Jake at Rock 105.7 for the boys games and play by play for the girls games....That worked out about as long as a cup of coffee staying hot(Florida trip)....

I listen to all 3 stations(flip from one to another) during basketball and football games but if CC is at home and WKLB is broadcasting that's the station I tune into....You can close your eyes and know exactly what is going on on the field or the court...Tyler and Jake do a good job but you're lost more often than not on what is actually happening....With WKLB you even get the "throwing stuff on the floor" descriptions.

This thread is ridiculous, General Jake does great job. It's a honor just to be broadcasting Clay County Sports. You guys go ahead and talk trash and start rumors, me and the general be on press row bringing the action Thursday night. General is a great guy and a awesome broadcaster

1st===Nice to know Earl got out from under that idiot Pooch..(yes pooch is an idiot with a drinking problem...I know this from a reliable source)
Glad Earl is doing great at broadcasting games..wherever he is...WYMT is last I heard...anyone???

2nd..dont know this sunny d or whoever is doing the broadcasts...however..Jake is a great person..and a good heart..great at what he does..and thats sports commentating..always has been...

As far as pooch and new talent...POOCH IS AN ASSHOLE...ALWAYS HAS BEEN...THATS WHY OLLIE HALL LEFT...Thats why I left...thats why Bret fox left..he's an ass...ever since Joe B left..WTBK has been run by an alchoholic drug pusher named Tim Finley (POOCH) course thats just my opinion about pooch..I could be wrong...

as far as pooch goes every one has there own personal demons. so get over it. the problem is the music sucks. its a rock station. play rock, classic rock, todays rock. play top 4 new stuff. im a guy and I love lady gaga, pink,ect. play music that everyone likes. we get sick of the same junk everyday.

Personal demons....WE all tried to change the rock music at rock 105...everytime we tried..(the above mentioned dj's) Pooch did not want change...and when It happened...he said people did not want to hear that new music...to where I was getting requests...but according to pooch..and I quote.."Requests are songs that people dont want to hear"...did you hear/see that logic..."requests are songs that people do not want to hear"..and thats why it will never change..unless pooch drinks or pops pills till the end.....cause he is already doing that...pilling and drinking to access(sp) so good luck on that one...course thats just my opinion I could be wrong...

Talk Show Monday night 7 to 9. Open records one night, come in and play your own records, tapes, CDs, MP3s for an hour a turn til midnight. Feature live performances of local bands in studio and on location. Karaoke/talent night, remotes from Big K, high school auditorium, Community Center, R&S park, Bert Combs campground.

Is Earl no longer at 105.7?
He is one of the best radio voices and personalities I've heard anywhere. That includes some stations in much bigger markets than our lovely Clay County.

Need to stop putting station ud sweeper between every song. Makes ststion sound fake and generic.

New music is what 105 needs to play more of. Few years ago pa was crankin new music mon threw thurs and old school rob did Friday night with a all request shiw that was so popular he couldn't fit all his requests in before house of hair came on.

Live dj 24 hours a day would be awesome. Mudnight to 5am shift would be a great spot for a new upcoming dj to learn his or her craft. 105 will never be as good as the days with joker , outlaw lee spencer. Diamond jim russel. Earl owens. Micheal angel and david begley days ever again I'm afraid.

Then they should file suit against Tim Finley for abuse...and Hostile work environment...Earl should head it...but all he wants is to play it safe.....or Tim would have been shut down years ago...Bank on that one...
