REAL. GOOD. MUSIC.Listener Profile“We partnered with 101.5 earlier this year; initially on a monthly basis then later onannual terms and have been simply thrilled with all facets our relationship with thestation and the "family" of staff, listeners, and other advertisers. Since this has beenour first venture into advertising in a long time we were skeptical and worried thatour investment may not pay off. I can tell you that if our interactions with the 101.5staff didnt put that to rest then the new faces we have seen come in the doorscertainly has. Never before have we been so pleased with a marketing decision. With 101.5 we have seen events and promotions come to fruition that otherwisewould have been little more than dreams for us. We have enjoyed interacting withthe staff and listener community and promoting not only our business (and seencorresponding growth) but also a community of healthy responsible and familyorientied individuals who have become aware of our presence in the valley in thebest ways possible. They have gone above and beyond not only our expectations but also the "call ofduty" promised by any other advertiser. I can’t say anymore how impressed we havebeen with our interactions with the station and can’t recommend enough anyinvolvement with the station you are considering. Please do not hesitate to callmyself or Pat here at the store or to email me with any questions.” – Gordon Wadsworth, Back Country Ski and Sports
