[VOTE] We're Nominated for Best Orlando Radio Station

No cash prize. But our ego will be into it.

June 27, 2019

We don't know who nominated us. But we're flattered.


(Click the link - then click 'Local Color' - then scroll down to 'Local Radio Station' - then ignore any better options you might be tempted to click and choose 'WQMP 101.9-FM' instead)

We've been nominted for BEST LOCAL RADIO STATION in the Orlando Weekly Best Of Orlando 2019 Readers PollReally, it's just an honor to be nominated, but as a wise man once said, "If you're not first, you're last." And like many restaurants in every major city, if we win this just once... we can hang this up in our offices for the next 30 years and point back to "That one time when we were the best" even if we let the fame go to our head, ruined all of our meaninful relationships and, having lost our passion, serve frozen foods until our Yelp! reviews drop so far not even Gordon Ramsey can save us.


Consider this a practice run for every other meaningful election. Get a feel for what it's like to VOTE and make an impact in your community.  Kind of like the Sarah McGlaughlin 'Arms Of An Angel' commercials that hit you like an emotional suckerpunch when you're just trying to watch The Drew Carey show reruns at 2am, you can make a difference with just the slightest amount of effort. All you have to do is VOTE.

And consider this a win for the 'little guy', in a sense that we're a small team here at FM1019, made up of people who actually made the conscious decision to make radio our life/career - despite the fact that all of those stories you hear about radio personalities being rich, famous, partying with celebrties and going crazy all ended in the 80s and we're just trying to scrape together enough of a living to feed our pets. It's a labor of love, really and your VOTE would mean a lot to us. It would show us that despite our best efforts, you DO like the music and companionship we try to bring to you every day.
