To those it may concern this letter is to inform you that due to the decision by Three Eagles Communication to change formats on the radio station 102.7 formerly the Blaze currently Super Hits I along with many others will be participating in active boycott of all Three Eagles radio stations as well as those businesses that chose to advertise with them. We have amassed over 400 members so far in less than 12 hours and will grow rapidly as word spreads. I have no quarrel with the format they chose to replace the Blaze with. My opposition to this decision is based on the format they took away. Northern Iowa and Southern Minnesota is left without a single radio station that plays modern rock/alternative music. Another disheartening aspect of this change is the crushing blow it deals to local musicians who won’t have a voice on the airwaves to promote and support them anymore. There is a vibrant rock scene here and we should support it as it brings revenue into our communities. I am certain that anyone who wants to bring a radio station that plays this genre of music back into our midst will find an eager and supportive fan base waiting for them the same way the Blaze had when they started up. Find us on Facebook at Boycott Three Eagles if you want to support our cause and lets show them that this was a poor business decision on their part and will end up being a costly one to their bottom line.
