This offer does not imply endorsement by The Police – but don’t you think they probably would love KXCI, too?

My wife and I thought one thing we'd be safe from on any decent community radio station would be promotional tie-ins to reunion tours of sterile, corporate-sponsored, geezer-rock bands like The Police. Sheesh, what on earth are you people thinking? Do you really need to "reach out" to the errant Classic Rock listeners who happen to stumble across KXCI? For one thing, notice that this concert is occurring in some big, generic arena in the cultural blackhole of Phoenix. We’d always assumed that KXCI positioned itself in opposition to this sort of lowest-common-denominator dreck. (No doubt there are any number of Clear Channel stations in Phoenix running very similar "Police reunion!" promos right now. Why not leave it to those yabbos?)

Why tie KXCI's otherwise good name to the most cynical kind of music-industry marketing event out there? We certainly hope this unfortunate incident doesn't represent a trend, thought up by some new promotions genius you've brought on down there. If so, we predict the downside for KXCI will be a lot steeper than any imagined upside.

PS: The last time I saw The Police was in a 20-thousand-seat arena in 1983. And they were boring and forgettable then.
