Athena The Queena

Someone named Janet in Fresno, California, just sent DJMoves and email with the following observation:


Hi,

Athena [who DJ Moves mentioned in March 2006] seems to have vanished from the web page of Big Country 102.7 in
Fresno CA. This woman made the station . Without her they are nothing.
What happened?

Number One Fan of Athena


Well, Number One, we'll keep our ears open for Athena.

I was wondering the same thing. I am a huge fan and she was awesome.

MY SON & I LISTENED TO ATHENA & UNCLE BUCK EVERY MORNING. WE LOVED THEM. WITH ATHENA GONE WE ARE SEARCHING FOR A NEW RADIO STATION.

It's just Clear Channel Radio changing the format to save a buck. It's happened too many times in too many cities. It's very sad and we'll miss Athena in the mornings. She'll brighten the airwaves again somewhere after she has some time with her baby (due very soon?) have no doubt about that! Hopefully, it will be in the Central Valley.

I'm searching for another radio station too. I listened to Athena and Uncle Buck and loved their "War of the Roses" and "Prank Calls".

Clear Channel might become "No Channel" with continous moves like this...I'm gone...GOOD LUCK UNCLE BUCK.....

BIG HUGS ATHENA WHEREVER YOU ARE! YOU TOO UNCLE BUCK - but fine another station to work for. Maybe you could hook up with Athena again and do another "show" for a station that appreciates you two as much as your listeners do!

I for one am glad Big Country has finally wised up and gotten rid of Athena. You can listen to "Uncle Buck" from 3pm - 7pm on the Big Country.

hi im ruth from madera and i listened to uncle buck and athena in the morning and i am very sad that she is gone. i think that when this happens to our dj's the public should know instead of just taking them off the air!

Hey, fellow Athena fans! She's reuniting with me tomorrow on my daily internet talk show at 10 AM on www.CentralValleyTalk.com. Uncle Buck sucks! Check out Athena with me, her original Fresno radio partner, Charlee Simons. See you tomorrow (Sept. 18, 2008).
