    The last time "Adrenaline" was used was in '08 when WLFI in Lafayette, IN used it for two years and most famously WBZ from '03 to '05.

    Good: somebody finally unearthed that relic.

    Bad: it doesn’t mesh well with the open.

    What the actual hell.

    That is all.

    (Seriously though...what were they thinking?)

    More GrooveWorx packs in use, the better I say.

    (Though they do need to fix those opens.)

    Poor execution by KSAT IMO, but more concerning, since the WCPM acquisition, this makes me wonder if anyone is left from Gari to do updates to anything. Unless you're a green CSD with no knowledge of the market and the station history or you're forced to by corporate, you don't just blow up a hook synonymous with the station and the brand for 20+ years.

    The Enforcer V2 updates are clearly 615 and I wouldn't hate if they took over updating or V2ing Gari's recent stuff, but this may be the end of an era for more than KSAT.

    WBZ made Adrenaline work by synching the last two notes of the theme with the turning and whooshing CBS eye.

    Kinda worried about WPLG than if KSAT has dropped The One & Only since they've used the package in one itieration or another since 1993.

    Fixed. KSAT used a different theme in 1993 before going with The One and Only in 1994.

    They're worried about WPLG, which commissioned it in 1993.

    Beyond the music, let's talk about the poor production quality of the newscasts featured in the above clips. The clueless 9 am open. The 6 pm open where the wrong story was featured on the video wall. Ouch. And they're number one?!?
