5-24-17 Press Release From JVC Broadcasting (Please note the tongue in cheek)
JVC Broadcasting, a leading independent, locally owned radio and events company with properties and event venues in Orlando, FL, Long Island, NY, Gainesville-Ocala, FL and West Palm Beach, FL, today vehemently denied rumors that link them with the responsibility or liability for a new radio station in the Orlando market. Known as “Bud 94.1 - King of Rock,” the station claims to be a part of JVC Broadcasting and will debut on the HD-2 channel of JVC owned WOTW-FM (103.1 The Wolf, Orlando’s New Choice for Country Hits and Throwbacks, which finds opportunities to shamelessly plug itself in press releases for other radio stations), as well as transmitting on 94.1FM in the very extremely near close future.
Shane Reeve, EVP of JVC Broadcasting, commented, “I have no comment at this time.” He further stated that he had no comment.
Bud 94.1 has long been rumored to exist, even going so far as to stream its “Rock Hard” music format on its website (ironically, Bud941.com) for the past several weeks. However, most radio industry professionals dismissed it as a hoax, practical joke, or terribly misguided head-first plunge into a shallow creek.
The reason for this industry wide skepticism seems to be the obvious recklessness of a station that would describe itself as only interested in “Beer, Boobs, and Rock.”
When asked about the station’s music and positioning decisions, JVC CEO John Caracciolo stated, “I have full confidence in the guys I’ve met a few times who said they could do this. It was obvious from the start as they had the finest collection of lawn chairs and yard flamingos I’ve ever seen. However, I also told them that if this radio station cratered, I would totally deny any part in the choices, and I’d get my revenge one day.”
Initial monitoring of the station revealed a broad mix of very, very, very, VERY hard rock hits ranging from Jimi Hendrix all the way up to Disturbed. The musical center seems to be bands with long hair and tattoos like Metallica, AC/DC, Van Halen, Guns N Roses and Ozzy Osbourne.
Other people associated with JVC Broadcasting also commented. Victor Canales, COO, had this to say: “I’ve told them not to get involved with that satanic music. I don’t understand what they are thinking. However, I did come up with the name of the station, the format, and logo.“Noted radio programming derelict Len Shackelford, who claimed to have never left a job voluntarily, is rumored to be Program Director but it has not been verified if he owns any lawn chairs.
