App is garbage....

If you enjoy continuously listening to the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, then this app is for you. When the adds hit, they stay annoyingly playing like the memory of farting in front of your first love right before having sex.

Mancow’s show is nothing but amazing. Unfortunately it’s the exact opposite for this app. You’ll be lucky if you can hear the shows, otherwise prepare yourself for enjoying adds that repeat themselves over and over.

RIP The Loop 97.9 WLUP

While the terrestrial station switched to Christian Rock at Midnight on March 10th, the app is supposed to keep playing Rock&Rock indefinitely. No issues with commercials since they made the announcement, music plays right away, in background, HQ, no issues. Only thing missing is the Chicago touch, the DJs, the talent, the talk. 97.9 WLUP may be gone, but it’s spirit will live on.

Garbage. Do not download.

Absolute garbage. If you want to listen to nothing but commercials on an endless loop, this is your app. Stay away from this rubbish. Would have left a negative amount of stars if I could....
