    105.3 Kiss FM - Response to Ban on Carrie's Music

    I was still stewing about this ban this morning because even though I knew they didn't really play Carrie's music, I felt that for this radio station to publicly diss Mike's wife after he gave them 11 years of his life both on and off the ice, for a radio stunt and self promotion was truly classless. So I went to their website to get their email address and this is what popped up.

    A message to our listeners:
    Thanks for all your calls, emails and Facebook messages. Yesterday we declared a "ban" on Carrie Underwood's music. As regular listeners we want to thank you for realizing this was our 'tongue in cheek' way of saying goodbye to Mike Fisher as we do not play Carrie Underwood's music.

    Mike was the heart and soul of the Senators and our city's finest ambassador. We will miss him and Carrie Ottawa's first couple and wish them great success and happiness in their future.

    So long Mike! Thanks for the memories!
    - The NEW 1053KISSFM

    And for Carrie Underwood fans, you can hear her all the time on our sister station Y101 -Today's Best Country!

    Regardless of whether this was a joke, it's still childish if you ask me. Glad it was a joke though.

    I was ok with the joke but then I watched the news last night and they showed the people at the radio station. Now knowing that news of the ban was spreading, if the radio people had said Mike was a great guy and they were kidding around because they don't play Carrie anyway being a pop station, that would have been fine. It's just when they started milking the situation for their own publicity, for some reason that pissed me off.

    They did it for publicity but it got out of hand.

    It was a very cruel "joke" if you ask me. Not funny hurting people's feelings.

    Ok so they are a pop station and they dont play country anyway, so then why do they have to comment about banning carrie. They really dont make any sense.

    That is exactly what it was and I don't think that the station manager had any idea that it would get as negative response as it did, if he or she had to do it over again I really doubt that they would do it.

    They should have talked to Big D and Bubba before they decided to make fun of Carrie.

    That's how you know it was a pop station. If it had been a country station, you bet they'd be aware of the power of Carrie fans. haha
