If you are looking for The Brew, it's on 96.1 HD2. Not sure why The Brew Moved to HD Radio only. Anyone know if they broadcast in any other analog channel. It's great I can get in my truck but, I don't work in my truck all day.

I came home from college and tuned into 96.1 as I always do. What came on the station shocked me. I sure miss having a station that played what I like.

Guest

WTF!!! I miss the Brew. I turned on 96.1 and some poppy crap was on. Then they said the new Kiss FM. The Brew had a lot of followers I'm sure. Omaha did not need another pop channel. BRING BACK THE BREW!!!!

The morning outsourced show sucks at Kiss fm.

I sure miss the Brew.. Was glad when they started out, and now am sad to see it gone.. I'm sure that now this new format will be short lived as it's just not that good of music, and only a few songs get played. Oh Well, I'm still singing, "Another One Bites The Dust"..

don't just bring back the "brew" bring back our guy Lester St. James--best morning host in the Omaha city--new "kiss" programmers are either stupid or jacka@! .. or both

cami carlisle is on 104.5 found her while looking for something other than the crap now called "kiss" -- if you think about how many good morning talkers have left makes you wonder if Michelle isn't the "kiss" of death for co workers

I have to agree with what others are saying. The kids like the change of pace on "daddy's station" but now even they are asking for "the brew" to come back. I already have 2 preset stations for the newer music, but now we have to find several other stations to cover what the brew did. I hate hitting see more... 3 different music stations and all 3, yes all 3 had the same song on. It's happened several times and I'm gussing I'm going back to country..

Oct. 4, 2012, 3:37 a.m. GMT

Guest

What happened!?! I loved the Brew!! Now I have to go back to listening to my CDs while I'm driving to get the music WAS my fave station.

Oct. 2, 2012, 7:41 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Bring back the brew. Got in my car for the first time in several days, turned on the brew and was rewarded with just a lot of noise. All you are doing is playing the same bad stuff over and over. I heard one song 3 times in 1.5 hours. Won't happen any more because 96.1 no longer commands one of see more... the presets on my radio.

OK, VERY FUNNY GUYS! THE JOKE IS OVER. BRING BACK THE BREW!

Another good station bites the dust. Why is it when you find place that plays great music like The Brew did some idiot in a big desk and big head want to screw with it. You lost another listener. Good luck with your new crap music! I hope your advertiser see the number of people leaving 96.1

Sept. 28, 2012, 2:50 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

I listened to the new format for a full week & heard exactly 11 song ( the SAME 11 songs - not even a dozen ) over & over, no matter what time of day I listened, so I am no longer listening to 96.1. Bring Back THE BREW!!!!!!!

Sept. 26, 2012, 2:56 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

WTF, you're playing the same crap as 94.1 & I stopped listening to them when they switched over. So 101.9 here I come, the brew was great & I enjoyed listening to it.

Sept. 26, 2012, 2:02 p.m. GMT

94.1 will blow u away with listeners...bring back The Brew the channel everyone loved

Sept. 21, 2012, 10:26 p.m. GMT

OMG I am following the masses LEAVING your station! I listened everyday, since your signal wasn't strong enough at my home I would use I heart radio to get at home. Here's my suggestion...PUT IT BACK and spend the money your blowing programming new CRAP on better tower or whatever it takes! OR see more... leave it and you won't have that many listeners for long anyway!

Sept. 18, 2012, 11:07 a.m. GMT

I Am 54 years old . The brew was my and my wife!s favorite station. I tried to get 96.1 and heard some pop music whitch I cant stand. Now I litsen to country or cds.BRING BACK THE BREW!!!

Sept. 15, 2012, 7:45 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

BRING BACK THE BREW!!!! Another pop station is the last thing Omaha needed. I only had 3 stations, 89.7, 92.3, and 96.1 the Brew. Now I'm down to two. This sucks! I will never listen to this station and the people who will have many other stations that play the same CRAP. I agree, I'll be back wh see more... en The Brew is back!

Sept. 15, 2012, 6:58 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Bring back the brew!!!!! There is no reason to make ANOTHER pop station! Idiots! The brew was a great station, I'm 21 and I listen to about any type music. Whoever had the idea to take away the brew just gave me another reason to just listen to my iPod

Sept. 14, 2012, 1:54 a.m. GMT

Guest

how much does it even cost to buy and run a station? it's probably not so much that you would run out and decide to sell the station to some jack@$$ who only plays S#1t all day!

Sept. 13, 2012, 1:13 a.m. GMT

Don't like the new format. I'll be back when the Brew is back.

Sept. 12, 2012, 10:15 p.m. GMT

Guest

I miss the Brew!! I listed to it everyday! In the morning, while making dinner, etc...it was my favorite station until the sad day that I turned on my radio, and I thought I had accidentally changed the station, only to realize that 96.1 The Brew WAS GONE!!! Why???

Sept. 12, 2012, 6:52 p.m. GMT

Guest

I, too, miss The Brew! I had thought I accidentally cleared it out on my presents when I came home from vacation! I won't be listening to the new format.

Sept. 10, 2012, 7:48 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

where did lester go? becuz I hate the "kiss" which is clone of "98.5" I scanned for new station and found cammy carlisle on 104! plugged into that now dudes! like we needed another 98.5?

Sept. 10, 2012, 3:47 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

what is wrong with u people, taking the BREW away, that was the music i listened to in junior high and high school and still love that music, the new station really sucks, and Omaha does not have another good classic rock station to listen to. Do what is right and get the BREW back on the radio.

Sept. 10, 2012, 3:38 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

people want the old Brew back!! what happened?????

Sept. 10, 2012, 12:33 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

hope your advertizers leave you and go to other stations. So disappointed. why don't you change one of your crapy stations back into a classic rock station like the Brew. I hope you lose money on this station.

Sept. 8, 2012, 10:15 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

I have to agree with all these posts, very, very disappointing to turn my radio on and find they changed the format. At first I thought somebody had messed with my presets! Guess I have to break down and get satellite radio because there’s nothing left to listen to in Omaha. BRING BACK THE BREW!! see more... !!!

Sept. 8, 2012, 6:09 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

The brew was a great station.....Why the change??? The more mature crowd that actually can listen to your commericials and have the money to spend on those vendors listened to the brew. Only teeny boppers and kids without money listen to the new station. Now I will have to listen to I Heart Radio see more... and find an out of town station.

Sept. 8, 2012, 1:54 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

WTF??!! I leave town for a cople days and find this crap?? BRING BACK THE BREW!!!

I have to add my complaint to the rest. I won't be listening to you any more. So sad too, there weren't that many good stations in Omaha, now there is one less. So goodbye, it was good while it lasted.

I assure you that you've lost more listeners than you've gained with the new format change! I know I'm not listening as well as those that have already posted here!

Sept. 7, 2012, 6:05 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Omaha offers very few CLASSIC rock channels--you had a good thing going!! Why did you change your format? There are several pop hits available...Omaha wants the classic rock back!!

Sept. 7, 2012, 4:13 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

get the rock back in omaha!!!! what are you thinking??? NOT

Sept. 7, 2012, 2:18 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Someone please tell me where I can listen to some Classic Rock now that 96.1 has changed format. I have deleted it off the preset, can't believe the format change...

Sept. 6, 2012, 6:20 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

I like many types of music, but you just turned your station into one like too many other stations. Bad choice!

Sept. 6, 2012, 5:39 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Very disappointed in the format change!!!!!!!!!!!! I lived near Omaha, but moved away a year ago. I was streaming The Brew on line while at work. Now where do I find a station that played their format?!!!!!!

Sept. 6, 2012, 5:38 p.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

Finally found a station that played the rock we grew up with. Pop stations are a dime a dozen. So disappointed! Live in Lincoln and loved the BREW.

Sept. 6, 2012, 4:36 p.m. GMT

Sept. 5, 2012, 1:56 a.m. GMT

Guest

Guest

You changed your format from good music to crap! I deleted your pre-set. I hope Z-92, 99.1, and 105.9 Play more music YOU SUCK!
